The 52-year-old was arrested by NYPD detectives and Homeland Security Investigators on sex trafficking charges
Singer R. Kelly has been arrested in Chicago on federal sex crime charges, according to two law enforcement officials.
The 52-year-old was arrested Homeland Security Investigation agents and NYPD detectives Thursday night on sex trafficking charges, officials tell News 4, and it is expected he will be brought to New York.
Further details on the case are expected to be announced Friday.
Spokespeople from the NYPD and Homeland Security Investigations declined to comment on the arrest. Calls to the U.S. attorney in Brooklyn were not immediately returned.
R. Kelly gave his first explosive and emotional interview with Gayle King on "CBS This Morning" since sexual abuse charges landed the singer in jail last month. (Published Wednesday, March 6, 2019)
Attempts to contact a spokesperson and legal team for R. Kelly were not immediately successful. Drea Kelly, the singer's ex-wife, had no comment following the arrest, her rep said.
The R&B star, whose real name is Robert Kelly, has been the subject of different sexual abuse allegations for nearly two decades, with some of the alleged acts dating back to 1998.
Arrested? But he’s black??
R Kelly? Is this someone everyone should know about, like the Steinfield TV show?
He is a major star, known for selling records, and doing things to teen girls, on video. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R._Kelly
This guy can’t get no rest. Maybe he should’ve thought about the consequences of pedophilia.
repeat offender sometime singer
Must be an urban thing, total blank.
There is a pattern developing. The US Attorney for the Southern District of New York appears to have been given orders to go after pedophiles and sex deviants no matter their social status. I expect a lot more during the summer and into the fall.
The black Jeffrey Epstein.
Epstein’s new bunkie?
Can you say “Weiner laptop”? I knew you could.
Or the SDNY has been given orders to arrest these people, stymie further investigations, and botch any prosecutions.
We’ll see which it is.
In any case, here’s another perp who has gotten away with sex crimes for decades.
Sounds like he needed to get his records moving again. This should work, but taking some lead still works better in that business, and if you don’t survive, you’ll be rolling in the dough (or, more accurately, laying in the dough).
Mr. Kelly, contact now Mrs Foxx at cook county state attorney office
