R. Kelly Arrested on Federal Sex Trafficking Charges

Embattled American singer, songwriter and record producer, Robert Sylvester Kelly, popularly known as R. Kelly has been arrested on federal sex trafficking charges.

According to CNN, Kelly is charged with sex trafficking in New York and attempting to influence a case in Atlanta, and was arrested while walking his dog, a source with knowledge of the arrest said.

The 52-year-old singer was arrested Thursday by NYPD and Homeland Security officials.

The controversial singer has been facing allegations of sexual assault for over two decades.

These allegations became more pronounced after a documentary series titled “Surviving R. Kelly” made its way online which saw women giving detailed stories about the alleged sexual assaults.

According to the BBC, the R&B artist was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in February. He pleaded not guilty and has been released on bail.

Following these allegations and subsequent denial by Mr. Kelly, he broke down during an interview on CBS’ ‘This Morning’ show. The interview, his first since his arrest in February with CBS’ Gayle King saw the award-winning singer repeatedly denying allegations against him of criminal sexual abuses.
