R. Kelly Arrested on Sex Trafficking Charges in Chicago

R. Kelly is once again facing legal troubles.

ET has confirmed that the 52-year-old RB singer was arrested in Chicago on Thursday on federal sex crime charges. ET has reached out to Kelly’s rep, Kelly’s attorney, the NYPD, Chicago Police and Homeland Security for comment.

The alleged incidents occurred between January 1, 2010 and January 31, 2010.

Those charges against Kelly stemmed from the alleged sexual abuse of Jerhonda Pace, then a minor, that she says took place in 2010. Pace told her story of alleged abuse in a docu-series called Surviving R. Kelly. The singer pled not guilty after a court hearing last month.

It’s tough. Everything is against him.”

The singer was previously jailed in March for failing to pay more than $161,000 in overdue child support. He was released three days later after someone covered the debt on his behalf. Additionally, Kelly pled not guilty in February to 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse allegedly involving three girls and one woman over
