Other Relationship Information about Aaliyah and R. Kelly:

Their marriage was annulled a few months after marrying.

R. Kelly introduced Aaliyah to listening audiences on his cassette single, "Bump N Grind."

Kim L. Dulaney: "The Aaliyah thing, I thought, was an accident, a fluke, because I knew that [Kelly] respected Barry, so I felt for him to violate that respect and that trust that Barry had [in him] was an accident. I knew that Aaliyah really looked up to Rob and had a crush on Rob, so I thought he just fell victim to that association and them giving him so much freedom with Aaliyah."

Aaliyah's age was listed as 18 on the marriage certificate.
