R. Kelly’s lawyer claimed that the R&B singer wasn’t aware of Aaliyah’s age when they married but an old video interview suggests otherwise.
In a recent interview with Good Morning America, Steven Greenberg, R. Kelly‘s lawyer, defended the singer and claimed that he never knowingly engaged in sexual acts with underage girls. Greenberg even went so far as to say Aaliyah lied about her age in order to go through with her marriage to Kelly and that he never knew she was underage.
However, an old video interview with Kelly that has recently resurfaced shows that he did know Aaliyah’s age at the time.
