Pastor Who Married R. Kelly and Aaliyah Testifies in R. Kelly Trial


This week the pastor who married Grammy Award winning singer / songwriter R. Kelly and pop star Aaliyah when she was 15 years old and R. Kelly was 27 testified against R. Kelly at his New York sex trafficking trial...

R. Kelly married R&B singer Aaliyah when she was just 15 in a 10-minute ceremony held inside a Chicago hotel room, a New York court has heard.
Pastor Nathan Edmond, who conducted the 1994 nuptials, testified Wednesday via video link at Kelly's sex abuse trial which is currently being held at a federal courthouse in Brooklyn.
Edmond alleged that he was recruited to marry Kelly, who was aged 27 at the time, after he was shown a falsified document that stated Aaliyah was 18.
'I didn't know it was anyone special,' Edmond stated. 'You couldn't see her whole face because her hair was over half of her face.'

I get that the charges and allegations were different back then but where was all this damning testimony during the first trial? Did the prosecutors not think to introduce these witnesses to demonstrate a pattern of pedophilia-like behavior back then? Or were the witnesses unwilling to testify or disinterested because they were his fans? Were they threatened, paid off or finally grew a conscience? Who knows? It's good all of this is coming out now but I'll be damned if some of the victims couldn't have been spared from this predator if these beans has been spilled sooner.

Thinking back about the rumors 20+ yrs ago, I didnt believe any of this. But he did repent with the minister and wanted to change, but he got worst.

I swear adults are more stupid than the children out here SMH. Rapist Kelly needs to be put to death. Jail ain’t gonna do shit for a notorious pedophile and abuser

Aaliyah had a pretty common look back in 1994, it would have been easy to mistake her for another around-the-way black chick in the early 90s.

But yeah, Kellz is going down...he ain't ever getting from under the jail lol smdh

Folks stop acting like we didnt hear about R-Kelly an little girls
He was always trying to recruit some high school girl into his harem. I stopped listening to his music when the VIDEO came out with him and the little girl in Chicago. In the 90's.
His A** shoulda been in jail, long ago.

He got married, because he thought he though he got her pregnant?
She was only 15. What is a 27 year old doing in the same room with a 15 year old little girl. ??

The previous trial was a whitewash. R.Kelly's record label brushed all under the carpet. R never got the help he so desperately needed ... even if it meant removing him from society before finally shipping him off to therapy. People "pretended" because R was bringing in way too much money. His manager Barry Hankerson (Aaliyah's Uncle, her Mom's brother), Jive record label CEO Clive Caldwell (the U.K. bastard who is now lording it up in the Caribbean), majority of his A&R people, etc, plus uncountable others have ALL had a hand in today's pathetically ludicrous charade. People deliberately looked to other way cos R.Kelly was their cash cow. A case of better for us to "use him" than "help him." These people cared zero for the girls. So all the music honchos have now moved on with R's cash in tow. "Times up" so better to pretend AGAIN and execute the satanic system of "prostituting" our women, "lynching" our men and gas lighting our folks to implode upon themselves. May God have mercy on all of us!

@3,07pm - as crazy as it reads, that, in a nutshell is exactly what has happened. Black folks imploding on each other! Kelly was abused as a child by is older sister and some man. The cycle should have been nipped in the bud right there and then. What happened his sister? What about the real damage caused to the girls?
