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.'
