On Thursday, federal prosecutors in Brooklyn accused the singer, songwriter and record producer of bribing an IL government employee on Aug 30, 1994, to obtain false identification for Aaliyah.

Greenberg has previously insisted the _Ignition _singer had "no idea" Aaliyah was 15 when they tied the knot.

Kelly was also charged in the Eastern District of NY in July in an indictment that accused him of violating the Mann Act by coercing and transporting women and girls across state lines to engage in illegal sexual activity as far back as 1999.

The singer is now being held without bail.

Kelly was arrested in February on 10 counts in IL of sexually abusing three girls and a woman.
