Aaliyah, R. Kelly

Looking back, it was no surprise Aaliyah’s 1994 debut album was called Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number. Before she even entered her teen years, she was introduced to hip-hop singer/producer R. Kelly, who took her under his wing. Not only did he become the lead songwriter on her album, which was released when she turned 15, but he also reportedly became her husband after she said “I do” to the then-27-year-old during a secret ceremony. The relationship soon soured and it wasn’t a topic Aaliyah wanted to discuss. When Vibe produced a copy of the marriage license in 1995, she responded, "I'm not married. That's all I really want to say about it." In 2001, Aaliyah died in a plane crash when she was just 22. In the years following her death, Kelly was involved in a legal drama over a video which reportedly showed him having sex with his then-underage goddaughter. Although he was initially charged with child pornography, the "Feelin' on Yo Booty" singer was later acquitted.
