In addition, a 13 count indictment was given by a federal grand jury in Chicago for receiving and creating child porn.

Kelly, 52, was arrested on Thursday night on a 13-count indictment which also included alleged obstruction of justice.

In May, the I Believe I Can Fly singer was charged with 11 counts of sexual assault in IL - charges that carry a mandatory minimum of six years in prison. Additionally, Kelly pled not guilty in February to 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse allegedly involving three girls and one woman over roughly 10 years starting in the late '90s. He pleaded not guilty and has been released on bail.

Chicago police referred all questions on the matter to the US attorney's office or NY police, but representatives were not immediately available for comment. Kelly faces 30 years in prison for each count of the aggravated criminal sexual assault charges.

R. Kelly has denied the allegations made in the six-part series.

In court papers, Kelly's team argued that Foxx's handling of the Smollett case show that she could be "influenced and wowed".

It was not immediately clear if the new federal charges against Kelly were related to previous cases.

The singer, 52, already facing sexual abuse charges brought by IL prosecutors, is understood to have been detained while walking his dog at around 7pm. "I'm cool, bro", he said standing and screaming.
