: There's a BOMBSHELL ready to be dropped in the R Kelly child pornography case. You'll recall that last week, the judge in the case closed the doors to the courtroom while lawyers for the prosecutors made a secret motion. And that the judge issued gag orders to preclude lawyers from talking about what went on behind the closed doors.
Well MediaTakeOut.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that during that closed door session, prosecutors asked to judge to allow evidence of R Kelly's improper relationship with the late R&B singer Aaliyah into the trial. For those of you who don't know, R Kelly and Aaliyah were married when the young singer was only 15 years old and R Kelly was 27.
And there's more. Our snitch told MediaTakeOut.com that the prosecutors wanted to introduce "love letters" from a 14 year old Aaliyah to R Kelly, and testimony from hip hop mogul Dame Dash (who was in a relationship with Aaliyah) and Aaliyah's family.
According to a person with intimate details of what went down, the defense argued that allowing such evidence would be inflammatory and "turn the trial into a media circus."
The judge has yet to rule on whether the prosecution can use the evidence.
