Kelly's lawyer, Steve Greenberg also spoke to Good Morning America back in January in the wake of Surviving R. Kelly. But on December 5, federal prosecutors added more charges, including bribery of a public office and public employee, according to court documents obtained by E! Prosecutors said that in 1994, Kelly caused another person to offer a bribe to an official to create a fake identification document for a person identified by the pseudonym "Jane Doe #1".

Federal prosecutors in NY filed a new indictment Thursday against R. Kelly stemming from his illegal marriage to singer Aaliyah D. Haughton.

In the Surviving R. Kelly docuseries, R. Kelly's former road manager recalled obtaining a fake ID for Aaliyah.

Aaliyah, whose full name was Aaliyah Dana Haughton, worked with R. Kelly on her debut album "Age Ain't Nothing but a Number".

During an interview with Good Morning America, Kelly's attorney Steven Greenberg claimed that the singer had no idea Aaliyah was underage when they Wednesday.

Embattled singer R. Kelly, 52, faces an additional indictment in the ongoing string of accusations he's faced since his arrest earlier this year. The marriage was annulled months later because of her age. TMZ obtained federal documents, which showed that R. Kelly and his associates brided an IL government official to get his hands on "fraudulent identification document" for Aaliyah.

The new charge was added to an existing, sweeping, federal racketeering indictment against Kelly, which accuses him of coercing several women, including at least two underage girls, into illegal sexual activity.

And, Kelly's other attorney, Doug Anton, claims "the charge is ridiculous and it smacks of the same desperation as the entire case".

R Kelly has been accused of bribing a public official the day before he married Aaliyah when she was just 15. The new charge of bribery will now be added to racketeering and other charges Kelly faces in NY, along with separate trials in IL. They only started accusing him of abuse years later when public sentiment shifted in the #MeToo era, his lawyers said. He has pleaded not guilty. As reported by People, Jovante gave a detailed account of the time she witnessed the statutory rape committed by R.Kelly.
