R.Kelly’s Lawyer Says He Didn’t Know Aaliyah Was 15 When He Married Her


R.Kelly’s lawyer says that any claims that his client is a child predator and rapist are not true.

Surviving R.Kelly has people talking about decade long allegations that R.Kelly has been preying on underaged girls. One particular time in Kelly’s life that is being investigated, is his unusual marriage to Aaliyah.

He allegedly married Aaliyah when she was only 15 years old. Video footage has recently surfaced and proves that R.Kelly knew her age when marrying her. In the video, R.Kelly says:

“Right now I’m producing a very talented lady — a young lady. She’s 14, Aaliyah.”

R.Kelly’s lawyer says, however, that R.Kelly did not know how old she was. In an interview ABC News, Kelly’s lawyers said:

“My understanding is that she did not claim to be 15, and in order to get married, she had to lie about her age.” 

While his understanding of events is likely motivated by a paycheck, the fact remains that there is proof that Kelly knew about her age. There is no way that Kelly can say that he did not know. He even stopped by GQ and spoke on his relationship with Aaliyah. Some sources claim that he even raped her on a tour bus

What do you think of what R.Kelly’s lawyer said in the interview? When do you think the cops will finally arrest R.Kelly?
