According to the court documents, Kelly has been charged with “Racketeering Act One (Bribery),” for the falsified document he allegedly created in 1994 so he could marry Aaliyah when she was only 15.
The document state,
“On or about August 30, 1994, within the Northern District of Illinois, the defendant ROBERT SYLVESTER KELLY, together with others, did knowingly and intentionally cause another individual to promise and tender to a public officer and public employee property, to wit: Unites States currency, that such public officer and public employee was not authorized by law to accept, with the intent to influence the performance of an act related to the employment and function of a public officer and public employee, to wit: the creation of a fraudulent identification document for Jane Doe #1, an individual whose identity is known to the Grand Jury, in violation of Illinois Criminal Code Sections 5/33-l(a) and 5/5-1,” the document filed on December 5 in the United States District Court Eastern District of New York.
This new charge stem from the shocking documentary, Surviving R. Kelly, the singers former tour manager revealed that he purchased a fake ID for 15-year-old Aaliyah so she could wed the disgraced singer.
Kelly's former tour manager Demetrius Smith, stated, Kelly and Aaliyah got a marriage license that lied and said she was 18. The couple tied the knot on August 31, 2004.
In the documentary Smith also revealed the shocking news that R. Kelly got teenaged Aaliyah pregnant.
According to Demetrius, R. Kelly stated to him, ‘Man, we got Aaliyah in trouble,’ he stated during a talk for Surviving R. Kelly.
“[He] mentioned to me that: ‘I think she’s pregnant.’”
“That broke my heart – I was so disappointed in him,” Demetrius said about Kelly impregnating his young girlfriend. “I really believed him when he said he wasn’t messing with Aaliyah because I questioned him. I was lost for words.”
Smith previously confessed that he procured the fake ID.
“I’m not proud of that – I had papers forged for them because Aaliyah was underage. [We] got the marriage license and we were in a hotel in Maywood, Illinois,” he said.
Smith went to admit that he regretted doing the singer dirty work.
“Aaliyah looked worried, scared,” he recalled. “Worried and scared. I wanted so much to grab Aaliyah and talk to her. I wanted so much to talk to her because she gave me a look like she wanted me to talk to her.”
“I feel like I failed them, both of them,” Smith continued. “I knew that it had changed the course of everything.”
