The 52-year-old was arrested by NYPD detectives and Homeland Security Investigators 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.
The R&B star has been the subject of different sexual abuse allegations for nearly two decades, with some of the alleged acts dating back to 1998.
Back in February, Kelly was charged with aggravated sexual abuse involving four women, three of whom were minors when the alleged abuse occurred. He pleaded not guilty.
A jury in 2008 acquitted Kelly of child pornography charges stemming from a video showing him having sex with a girl as young as 13, prosecutors claimed at the time. Kelly faced 15 years in prison for that charge, but the young woman in that claim denied it was her and did not testify.
R. Kelly doesn’t have the money to pay people off and cover things up like he used to, also the longer he got away the act, the sloppier he got.
