R Kelly has been arrested on charges including child pornography and enticement of a minor.
The R&B singer faces a 13-count indictment, which also includes obstruction of justice, after he was arrested on Thursday night.
He was arrested by NYPD officers and is expected to be brought to New York, NBC Chicago reported.
He already faces sex-crime charges in Illinois involving four women, three of whom were minors when the alleged abuse occurred.
Kelly pleaded not guilty to those charges and had been released on bail.
No other details about the most recent charges, confirmed by a US attorney spokesman, were immediately released.
