R Kelly has been arrested on federal sex crime charges according to a spokesman for the US Attorney’s Office.

In a short statement, Joseph Fitzpatrick said child pornography, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice were among the 13 charges against the R&B singer, whose real name is Robert Kelly.

R.Kelly is expected to be taken from Chicago to New York to face charges 

The 52-year-old RnB singer was arrested on Thursday by New York Police Department detectives and Department of Homeland Security agents, as confirmed by New York’s WNBC-TV.  

Though a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office said R. Kelly faces a 13-count sex crime indictment, as well as charges related to child pornography and obstruction of justice, it is expected that his case will be announced on Friday (July 12).
