As the publication notes, Demetrius Smith — who was previously employed as one of Kelly's tour managers — said in Surviving R. Kelly that he bought a fake ID for a then-15 year old Aaliyah so that she and Kelly could legally get married.
According to reports, Aaliyah and Kelly were married in a secret ceremony the day after her fake ID was obtained. Not only that, but a source speaking to the New York Times confirmed that "Jane Doe" was Aaliyah and that the ID was used to obtain the marriage license that said she was 18.
