R. Kelly has been accused of bribing a public official, one day before he married R&B singer Aaliyah, who was just 15-years-old at the time.

According to court documents obtained by E! News, the musician has been accused of bribing an official to obtain the “creation of a fraudulent identification document” for someone only identified as “Jane Doe #1.”

He allegedly bribed the official the day before he wed Aaliyah on August 31, 1994.

Their marriage was annulled months later, after her family found out what had happened.

Sadly, the singer later died at the age of 22 in a plane crash back in 2001.

R. Kelly is facing several sexual abuse charges with trials in Chicago and New York next year, but he has vehemently denied any wrongdoing.
