R&B singer R. Kelly is in custody after being arrested in Chicago on sex trafficking charges.
There are 13 charges against the singer, including possession of child abuse images and obstruction of justice.
The 52 year old was arrested by NYPD and Homeland Security officials.
He has already pleaded not guilty to more than 20 sexual offences.
For two decades, R. Kelly, whose real name is Robert Kelly, has been accused of different sexual abuse allegations.
He was brought back into the spotlight following the documentary series Surviving R. Kelly, which detailed stories about him pursuing teenage girls dating back to the start of his career.
It is not yet known whether the new federal charges are linked to the same cases.
