With the release of Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number, rumors circulated of a relationship between Aaliyah and R. Kelly, including the allegation that they had secretly married without her parents’ knowledge. Vibe later revealed a marriage certificate that listed the couple married on August 31, 1994, in Sheraton Gateway Suites in Rosemont, Illinois. Aaliyah, who was 15 at the time, was listed as 18 on the certificate. The illegal marriage was annulled in February 1995 by her parents.
Not-so-fun-fact is that 9 people died because Aaliyah and entourage demanded the smaller plane take off immediately despite the insistence from the pilot that the plane was overloaded. Turns out it was overweight by 700 pounds and nosedived and exploded into flames just moments after takeoff.
