Aaliyah, R. Kelly

A video that surfaced online this week provides proof that embattled singer/songwriter R. Kelly knew Aaliyah was underaged at the time of their marriage in 1994.

Kelly strenuously denied knowing the late singer was only 15 when he married her. But the video proves definitely that he did.

In the video clip from a 1994 documentary, Kelly introduces his new artist, Aaliyah. "Right now I'm producing a very talented lady - a young lady. She's 14, Aaliyah. She's real street."

Kelly, 52, is accused of lying about Aaliyah's age to obtain the marriage certificate.

Kelly met Aaliyah - the daughter of his then manager, Barry Hankerson, when she was only 12. They tied the knot in 1994 when Aaliyah was 15 and Kelly was 27. According to sources, Kelly reportedly believed Aaliyah was pregnant at the time.

The marriage was annulled less than a year later. Kelly produced Aaliyah's debut album, interestingly titled Age Ain't Nothin' But a Number.

Aaliyah would have turned 40 on Wednesday, Jan. 16.

After the airing of the bombshell documentary Surviving R. Kelly, Georgia and Illinois officials launched investigations into allegations that the crooner held women hostage in a home in a suburb of Atlanta and in his Chicago studio.

Multiple celebrities who collaborated with Kelly, including Lady Gaga, Chance the Rapper and Beyonce, removed their collaborations from music streaming services.

Kelly's label, RCA/Sony Music, also decided to shelve Kelly's music - at least until the controversy dies down.

Kelly is reportedly taking the negative publicity very hard. He was recently hospitalized in Chicago with panic attacks.

    Whatever happened to him? Is he still in the business?

    Exactly! That Mom was complicit.

    Hmmm, don't both parties have to show ID at the marriage license office?

    R. Kelly's new lawyer is claiming that he didn't know that Aaliyah was 15 when married her. Aaliyah is the only underage girl that it could be proven that he was involved with.

    They forged a birth certificate I think that's why it was annulled it was fraudulent

    Ugh leave her be. She transitioned well. Old blog roses know how I feel about her. Hence my gravi never changing. In any event see y'all next post.

    Damn they going to keep beating the dead horse! Okay okay we know, R Kelly is the devil.

  • Applebootay

    I didn't see her Uncle, Mother or Father around. She was too young to be around him by herself like that. I guess I just don't understand the industry.

  • SpiceGirl

    I call BS on that! Back in the day....Young girls LOOKED like young girls...not like today little girls, being 12 and lookingbuilt like a 25 yr old.

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Applebootay

    Yeah, he was "with" her then and when he said "baby" I cringed.

  • Well$$Well$$?

    Which was odd to me because marriage licences are a public record. I think Diane Haughton is denying everything because she knows if she admitted what really happened, people would start asking her hard questions...

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Missy age timberland were great for Aaliyah

  • tia

    Okay and so what? No excuses, but if the powers that be are not going to push for charges with this Aaliyah issue or anything else, it's time to move on. And that bogus sex slave/harem stuff? Those women were star-struck, money hungry participants. The documentary created the fire storm and propelled the Karma into action. Now enough of this.. tired of hearing about him.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Yes she has so much swag

  • Applebootay

    Her mother also posted an PSA saying that the girl/dancer in the series that said she saw Aaliyah and Kellz having sex is a lying and that she was with her when she went on tour...I'm like that has nothing to do with what that girl said....she didn't say it was "Aaliyah has tour..only that it was on a tour bus......its amazing the level of denial...however, I guess, like you said...the truth would probably be too much to bare especially since she already lost her....sad

  • Applebootay

    Unfortunately, its inevitable...talking about him forging a marriage license and marrying and underage teen will come in to play as evidence that speaks to his character. So ALL his demons have to be exposed and that means anyone dead or alive.

  • Shawty

    He said her dad was his former manager.

  • oshh16

    I thought she was an immense talent as well. Very original!

  • Bashi22

    This sound valid, my question why didn't someone was charged for the forged signature?

  • J2PC

    You gather evidence over a period of time to show a pattern of behavior for lying, being around young girls, etc. Look at the lies about I didn't know she was underaged that looks very similar to denying knowing the same about some of the other underaged girls. -Aaliyah is a part of that history & pattern that needs to be explored & tied into what is happening today.

    Other men have said it was odd that a grown man like him use to hang around high school, fast foods & malls just to be around young impressionable teenage girls.

    Hopefully, showing a pattern is making the cases of alleged victims a much easier. While sporting their wedding rings during the interview, that young girl was obviously revealing herself being a child by talking about still being in school & her parents making sure she was getting her homework done.

    Fanatic is used to describe overzealous sheeples (fans) who worship false gods aka idols/idolatry. Human beings have different talents. Once gift or talent in abundance or by the millions around the world is entertainment of all sorts.

    Millions of people can rap, sing & dance. Yet, most will never be heard on a larger stage because that is all about having connections, favoritism for doing favors, working the magic of studio equipments to creating an image & sound to sell to fanatics.

  • J2PC

    Telling the truth & reflecting on history & evidence should not be flipped into calling it dragging to divert from facts.

    When it comes to other cases, the same people certainly don't mind reflecting on someone else's history to prove a pattern. Well, those folks or perpetrators have family that equally feel the same way. -never be afraid to discuss facts.

    History is about facts of the past. A lot of people in various history books aren't here to deal with the negatives being discussed. Yet, folks are happy to discuss & reflect on history of all sorts. -we can't have it both ways by letting emotions reflect bias & hypocrisy.

  • WhoKnew

    I read an article last night about his former manager turning himself into the police for making threats against the family of one of the brainwashed women being held and he is dropping dime on R rah Kelly hoping to shave some time off of the the fed pen time he finna get. I wonder how much time R rah gonna do? If that don't learn him (which it probably won't) nothing will. Turn to the page in the book of Mystikal. Not only did that fool do time for rape, he came out and raped somebody again and went back to jail. Now they finna let his rotten ass out and guess what he'll be getting a new cell number again cuz he ain't lernt nuffin.

  • Renee26

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    This R Kelly $hit is a circus! They have been replaying that docuseries over and over again like it is reruns of Martin.

    The ONLY thing that the constant chatter of R Kellys perverted ways is doing is getting R Kelly more money and exposure! Folks downloading the tape again, and his music so its a win win situation for him so... Wisen up folks and pay this topic dust so it can hit them where it hurts... His POCKETS ???

  • J2PC

    MTO: Aaliyah was not Barry Hankerson's daughter. He was her Uncle & Manager. In addition, he also managed the illiterate, dyslexic R.Kelly who no longer owns or control his publishings.

    Not to switch gears, but "Did Kelly have proper legal representation for signing over the power of his documents or property since he lacks capacity or have a learning disability unless he has proper legal representation?

    And was the signing over of his publishing considered a conflict of interest if the Uncle/Manager of both people was also involved in that sign off of his publishings? Shouldn't money generating publishings & creations go to his children?" -questions that come to mind.

    So did her parents when they sent her off packing with grown men without supervision. R Kelly is a pedophile but these parents need to take responsibility for their actions.......

    Aaliyah's father should have personally beating R Kelly's arse when he heard about this nonsense, but I assume that he and her mom were paid handsomely to send their daughter to become this pervert's 'wife'.

    Damn...here we go again..this young lady has been decease almost 18 years and people are still trying to dig up dirt...so wrong because she is not here to tell her side.

    FOOD FOR THOUGHT...the parents signed the marriage license...and had to be present during the ceremony...that is the real reason R Kelly was never charged...

  • Coy little wink

    Nope...anytime you enter a contract its at your own risk hun. Its not like an arrest you have no Miranda rights ?

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    There is only one reason that he would jump and marry that little girl because I am pretty sure he had plenty before her... maybe people should do some research on Aaliyah dad or men around her she have prolly been molested at a very young age

  • Coy little wink

    No. They eloped with a fake birth certificate. The marriage was fraudulent and was annulled for fraud

    Her parents were paid in exchange for not pressing charges

  • MsSapphire9800

    They was married at the Cook County Court... what I want to see,,,is who were the witnesses to this marriage because it states they had a religious ceremony...big different. Also if the parents accepted money...than they were part of the marriage.

  • Coy little wink

    The pay day came after the annullment. Witnesses are not required to marry.

  • Tecia Booker

    I agree.....they just need to leave it alone...I'm tired of hearing about...Geesh..I still support him...

  • MsSapphire9800

    What...you must have 2 witnesses for any type of marriage cermony....and where did you find the annullment papers that stated the reason the marriage ended...because I am sure they were sealed because of her age.

  • Coy little wink

    My bad...I'm thinking about the license. I don't know who witnessed the marriage but it wasn't her parents. The license said she was 18 so her parents permission was not obtained or given. It was all in the news at the time Google it...

  • Ruth

    Wrong the witness was r kellys manager.

  • MsSapphire9800

    BS...He stated they were sealed,,but was release to him...please everyone jumping on the bandwagon for clicks....no one will ever know what those allument papers stated but R Kelly....and even though she stated she was 18 yrs old...her parents were down with all this mess.

  • Pebbles

    As I said before everyone on the documentary need to be arrested too

    Her name being attatched to it ( make it more relevant to me ) otherwise I don’t believe people would’ve paid it dust and it wouldn’t have had the attention that it’s been recieving.

    Let me add i been stopped listening to and supporting his music years ago ..

  • Coy little wink

    Well why was it annulled then? They could have just given their permission to make it valid. There are only a few grounds for anulling a marriage. I'm an attorney btw

    Facts are facts

  • smartchickfl

    They sure were?.

  • Lady_Elle

    I'm not saying it is right... country artists marry young girls. I think it depends on the state as to the rules around this.

    Also... didn't her parents give permission?

    On the documentary... one of the women talked about walking into a trailer and Aaliyah & Chester were having sex!

  • Naomi

    What country artists today? If you're talking about back in the day like Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis...completely different time and place (nor does it make it right). Her parents didn't give permission which is why they had it annulled. He (or his team) forged her age to say 18 on the marriage certificate.

  • Bashi22

    Exactly I place all the blame on her money hungry fame seeking parents.

  • Michelle

    Whether they knew before or after they still found out. And if they didn’t prosecute him then what do you think happen?

    People have been knowing this for 25 years! why not bring awareness to the hood where a 15 year old girl with a 25 year old boyfriend/baby father is as common as air and water? This is ridiculous and once again Georgia and Illinois is going to waste taxpayers money to find out several consenting adults are living their best life with their lover. What about places like Utah where men have multiple wives and many of them marry teenagers, why are we talking about surviving that?

  • NewNew

    Lol, i know. We have to do our due diligence, right?!

  • speakinmymind

    FACT: There is no case because no one was under the legal age of consent and no one was held against their will. There is no investigation in Atlanta and the Cook County IL district attorney asked for people to come forward but there is no active investigation there either.

  • Kylla Williams

    the thing is if the birth certificate and all was fake the marriage wasn't valid meaning no need for an annulment. they had an annulment because the marriage was legal and valid meaning the parents did sign off on it and when she wasn't pregnant had it annulled.

  • Kylla Williams

    i want to know too. where did they get that from cuz Ive never heard that until now.

  • Coy little wink

    When you get your law degree you will know better than this...

    Yup that huge gay guy was running around on fire but died a few minutes afterwards... check out the documentary where they showed them gettting off the plane with all that luggage they must have bought more stuff people saw them arguing with the pilot.

    This statement that I'm about to make is in NO WAY lashing out at or supporting Mr. Kelly.

And sum in the milk ain't clean. Just like our black sisters that got caught up with Gloria Steinem and "their movement" of the 60's. Who got the short end of the stick? History does repeat itself.

    And oh..you can add Mr. Jerry Lee Lewis (who married his preteen cousin), and Mr. Elvis Aaron Preseley ( who married "Cilla" his nickname for Priscilla) to the docket.

  • dontgetblocked

    That was 26 years ago and the Aaliyah is dead. I think we should just let it go. Women did and still do get married or have babies at 15. Her parents let the relationship go on and faked horror when they got married.

  • dontgetblocked

    Too much money

  • B.Loveitt

    But they knew...her parents and he uncle Hankerson but RK took it to far marriage was not the plan. RK blew up his own spot. Aaliyah's folks are just as accountable. If he had waited until she was 18 they might have let it ride while claiming dislike for the marriage. They annulled it because all both parties had to say is they didn't consummate marriage and she was underage. Just like so many other parents who let their daughters date men too old and they moment something goes wrong they hang the underage thing over their heads.

  • Michelle Peele

    Folks seem to have answers about everything else. I'm sure a theory will present itself.

  • Monty Bee

    Except, the guy being interviewed, Jim DeRogatis, has been reporting on and ringing the alarm about R. Kelly's predilections since 2000. So, he's not jumping on any bandwagon. He was the reporter that the infamous videotape was originally anonymously sent to when he was at the Chicago Sun-Times, shortly after he published an expose about several legal settlements R. Kelly had paid out to underage girls he had relations with. That tape was then turned over to the police by the paper, leading to the child pornography charges. Given that, it's believable that a source may have shown him the sealed annulment.

  • the guest

    I thought her eyes always looked sad and vacant. She was indeed successful and beautiful, but her vibe was melancholy and eerily melancholy for a very young lady. She felt the effects of being exploited by a pedophile. Interesting how the title of her first album is a promotion of pedophilia. R Kelly is a savant genius in one area of music, illiterate, inept socially, and sexually deviant.

  • the guest

    Disturbing that their minor daughter is just walking around hanging out with grown men she’s not related to.

  • the guest

    EXACTLY.

  • the guest

    Back in the day it was trendy in hip hop for young under the age 16 teen girls in the scene to go out with grown men over 25 and even over 35.

    The problem is grown men in hip hop dress and act like teens well into their 40s but they are not peers to teens!

  • the guest

    EXACTLY.

  • the guest

    They annulled the marriage so he wouldn’t face statutory rape charges. I remember reading that clear as day back then. RK married Aaliyah because he’s a pedo but also because he’s a tyrannical businessman and he wanted to own her business interests through marriage.

    Sad truth is Aaliyah’s Family was ok with the relationship as long as they retained some control of her career and profit. As RK’s wife, her family would lose control and profit.

    Her family advocated against the marriage for their business interests not for her well being. The poor girl was a pawn and product for everyone around her.

  • the guest

    What grown man walks around hanging out with a young teen girl as his “homeboy” and “girlfriend”. The video is disturbing.

    We black people need to be ashamed how we protect the black pedos and demonize the BW victims. Always talking about what about white males when black girls have high sexual molestation and pimping rates and it sho ain't white males doing it.

    That's right!

    Eh, that kind of fact is fiction. Here's what we know that's in the news: Prosecutors in 2 states reportedly looking into R. Kelly abuse allegation.

    R. Kelly could be facing legal trouble after a documentary series aired allegations that the singer had engaged in a long pattern of abusive and predatory behavior against young women, and even pedophilia.

    Prosecutors in Georgia and Illinois are reportedly seeking witnesses and evidence to corroborate the claims made in the Lifetime network’s “Surviving R. Kelly,” which aired last week.

    A lawyer for Joycelyn Savage, one of the women featured in the exposé, told C NN that the Fulton County District Attorney in Georgia contacted him after the series aired.

    Gerald Griggs, the attorney, said the Fulton DA is investigating Kelly. A public information officer for the DA, however, declined to comment when CNN called to confirm the investigation.

    But Griggs said the DA asked him to provide a list of witnesses to events that allegedly occurred at Kelly’s house in a northern Atlanta suburb in 2017.

    A Chicago prosecutor, meanwhile, is asking any victims or witnesses to the allegations against Kelly to contact her office.

    Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx told reporters on Tuesday that she was “sickened” by the allegations made in the documentary series. -12News

    Came out of the man's own mouth. Why not do your own homework or research on a matter? In fact simply tweet the man's inbox to ask if there's any truth to it.

    Otherwise, G-search R. Kelly gave up publishing rights in music. -a number of settlements & documents can be sealed from the public via paying a good lawyer.

  • J2PC

    Not always. -little do you know. There is a framework that a contract is based on where it has to meet 3 rules laws.

    I'm an attorney hun tell me about it ?

  • J2PC

    Then, you should already know. Otherwise, look up phrases like "What Makes a Contract Invalid" or "Legal Contracts can be voided" for legal advice give to the public by legal experts.

    Legal Object and Capacity of Parties

    The subject matter of the agreement must be legal and both parties must:

    Freely agree to the terms
    Be over the age of consent
    *Be able to mentally carry out the agreement

    Perhaps, one could argue that "mentally" Kelly lacks the capacity to understand that which could be considered a one-sided, biased agreement with conflict of interest given that he is allegedly illiterate or cannot read & write due to a learning disability & dyslexia, etc. -it's been done before. ijs

  • J2PC

    In addition to having mental capacity & all that which it entails, what about "Consideration" of a contract? What did Kelly get in exchange for giving up his publishings (was there an equal swap in the deal) or was it one-sided & self-serving?

    "Consideration"

    A valid contract must have the element of consideration (a price or value) exchanged in the agreement. Consideration is not limited to money, and can include a right, interest, or benefit. Both parties must benefit in some form.

    For instance, when one party sells their vehicle to another party, the seller receives money, and in exchange, the buyer receives the vehicle. -What makes a contract Valid (LawDepot).

  • Coy little wink

    Kelly gave up his publishing in exchange for not being criminally charged for his actions. Sounds like a fair exchange to me...

  • Coy little wink

    I do know. Yes one could argue that but I don't think that would win in court. He's illiterate but he is not mentally incapacitated.

  • J2PC

    Yet, arguable is the keep that gives hope or room for a courtroom battle should that become a case. Who are they to say not mentally incapacitated when there are similar cases where such a person was considered having limitations. -can't have it both ways with exceptions made reflecting favoritism for some while being biased to reflect a level of hatred for another in the same position. It can go on & on.

  • J2PC

    He's a fool. He could have done a settlement of a few millions & reaped the remaining benefits for the rest of his life off of his publishings. Income revenue from his publishings will either live on for decades to come or cease due to being tainted making it a fair exchange.

    He could start by tainting it with claiming any support for those publishings is hypocritical because in essence it is supporting the underage criminal activity to a child bride. What a mess!
