Aaliyah Lifetime Biopic Portrayal Of R. Kelly Marriage Was Fake: Court Documents Reveal Relationship Was One of ‘Abuse and Victimization’

Late R&B singer Aaliyah married music producer/singer R. Kelly at the tender age of 15. Aaliyah's family was clearly not pleased when they heard the news. The new Lifetime biopic, "Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B," recreated the moment the late singer brought home her new husband, 28 at the time. "You did what?!" asks Aaliyah's father (Sterling Jarvis). "Did you lie on the marriage license?" Check out the clip here: In real life, "Vibe Magazine" later uncovered that Aaliyah (Alexandra Shipp) did lie about her age. In a published marriage license, her age is listed as 18. The "marriage" lasted about seven months and was annulled by her parents in February 1995. According to "Essence," talk show host Wendy Williams, the movie's executive producer, said it was important to portray the scandalous relationship in the film. Williams recalled telling Lifetime they had to "get this Aaliyah movie right." "I was very popular on the radio for Aaliyah's rise and untimely death. I want to hear about R. Kelly ... Don't skate over it. This needs to be a big plot line," she said. Music critic Jim DeRogatis has found some issues with the film's portrayal of Aaliyah and Kelly's relationship. In a blog post, DeRogatis, who has covered Kelly's career extensively, writes that fans "deserve better than the sanitized, soft-pedaled version of her disturbing sexual relationship with Chicago producer R. Kelly when she was 14 and he was 27." DeRogatis adds that court documents show that the relationship was "one of abuse and victimization, far from the 'puppy love' seen in 'Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B.'" Read More »
