Kelly, 52, was arrested on Thursday night while outside his Chicago apartment.

It was Homeland Security agents and officers from the New York Police Department who carried out the arrest, despite the fact that Kelly was in Chicago at the time.

The singer was on bail at that time and had imposed a $ 1 million bail after Cook County prosecutors sued him for 21 alleged sexual crimes charges against four women – three of whom were minors.

These charges come months after several victims spoke out against the singer in the Lifetime docu series Surviving R Kelly, including Kelly & ex 39's wife Andrea, Asante McGee, Lisa Van Allen, Jerhonda Pace, Kitti Jones and Lizette Martinez.

In that series, Stephanie & # 39; Sparkle & # 39; Edwards, a one-time Kelly protegee who told the authorities in 2002 that the girl Kelly was seen to be raped on the charging tablets as her minor niece.

Edwards' career was never restored after she made the decision to accuse Kelly and later testify against him during the trial, and she remains alienated from most of her family.

Seventeen years later, her sacrifice was attacked by federal prosecutors this week, as all 13 charges in the charge against Illinois stem from her 2002 interview with the police.
