Kelly was arrested on a 13-count federal indictment, which included child pornography, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice charges, the spokesperson said.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Kelly’s former manager Derrel McDavid and employee Milton “June” Brown also were indicted on allegations they helped Kelly pay thousands of dollars to recover child pornography tapes and pressure witness in Kelly’s 2008 trial.

New York’s WNBC-TV, which broke the story, reported earlier that Kelly was arrested by New York Police Department detectives and Department of Homeland Security agents and was expected to be brought to New York.

The spokesperson said Kelly’s charges relate to offenses that occurred in the Northern District of Illinois and did not know the origin of reports linking Kelly’s arrest to crimes in New York.

The singer was being held in federal custody. His arraignment date is to be determined.

Kelly has for decades been the subject of sexual abuse allegations — some involving minors. The R&B singer was acquitted in 2008 of child pornography charges stemming from a videotape that allegedly showed Kelly engaging in sex acts with a 13-year-old girl.
