The storm is not anywhere near over for disgraced rapper and singer, R.Kelly. Federal prosecutors in the Eastern District of New York have filed a new charge against the American singer, songwriter, record producer, and former semi-professional basketball player, Robert Sylvester Kelly popularly known as R.Kelly over the marriage certificate confirming the union between him and late singer, Aaliyah.
According to reports, Robert who has had quite a lot of history with criminal charges centered around sexual assault, forgery/fraud and the likes, has now been charged for bribing an officaial in order to attain the marriage document.
It was learnt that his wife, Aaliyah was 15 at the time, while Kelly was 27 years old. Now, 25 years after, he is being charged for conniving with the official to affix her age as 18 in 1994.
This is coming after a sweeping set of federal indictments filed against Kelly in July by prosecutors in New York and Illinois. Many have lost hope that the singer would be seen in the same light or attain a certain level of freedom considering Kelly continues to deny all allegations, including 19 federal charges, multiple ongoing civil lawsuits and sexual assault cases. Kelly is currently being held in a federal prison on the US on grounds of sexual assault.
