R. Kelly Desperate To Avoid Life Imprisonment, Denies Getting Aaliyah Fake ID

In a last-ditch bid to escape receiving a life sentence from a federal court later this month, R. Kelly has denied "using" the late singer Aaliyah in a bribery scheme that led to their 1994 illegal marriage. His legal team denied the singer has gotten her a fake ID, or being the person behind that ruse, so Aaliyah can marry despite being just 15.

16-Year-Old Accused of Victimizing R. Kelly As He Tries to Avoid Life in Prison; Denies Using Aaliyah

Aaliyah was just 15 years old when she allegedly married R. Kelly, according to prosecutors. During the disgraced singer’s trial, a witness even testified that she walked in on Kelly performing a sex act on the teen when she was just 13 or 14 years old. Still, Kelly continues to profess his innocence and blames alleged victim Jerhonda Pace, who was just 16 at the time, for setting him up.

Usher Confesses He Wished He Dated Aaliyah

Usher revealed in a recent interview with Daily Pop that he regrets never starting a relationship with Aaliyah. “Somebody that I was really good friends with that I wish I would have taken more serious, [because] she was a really close friend of mine for a small amount of time, and then we just kind of disconnected — it was Aaliyah,” the Confessions singer recalled. The pair hung out frequently, but their relationship didn’t flourish into anything more than friends. “We didn’t get around to it, we kinda talked but didn’t do it,” he continued.
