R. Kelly, the 52-year-old R&B singer, was arrested Thursday on child pornography and other charges in Chicago, a spokesperson for the United States Attorney's Office for the Northern District of IL told Fox News.

US attorney spokesman Joseph Fitzpatrick says the 52-year-old Kelly was arrested Thursday night.

Kelly (C) arrives at the Leighton Criminal Courts Building for a hearing on June 26, 2019 in Chicago, Illinois.

Law enforcement sources told CBS News Kelly is facing two separate federal indictments in two separate districts - one in northern IL, and one in NY.

Early on Friday, the Chicago Sun-Times said Kelly faces a 13-count sex crime indictment, citing the U.S. Attorney's office.

The R&B singer, 52, was taken into custody by NYPD detectives and federal investigators, according to the sources.

Kelly has already been charged with over 20 counts of sexual abuse. Kelly, whose legal name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, was in high spirit as he awaits his trial, according to Johnson.

Kelly has been the subject of abuse allegations for almost two decades, with some reports dating back as far as 1998.

The arrest comes months after Kelly was charged with 11 additional counts of sexual abuse in May.

The embattled R&B singer pleaded not guilty to 11 felonies related to sexual assault and various abuse in IL on June 6.

Tia Ewing of Fox Chicago details the charges against R. Kelly are sealed but there are three, with one out of New York City and two in Chicago.

Kelly has denied the allegations.

Those charges against Kelly stemmed from the alleged sexual abuse of Jerhonda Pace, then a minor, that she says took place in 2010. He pleaded not guilty to those charges and was released on bail.

In an intense interview with Gayle King for CBS This Morning in March, Kelly spoke out on the allegations against him.
