R. Kelly is in custody, wearing an orange jumpsuit, and will stay there, at least until Tuesday!

According to CNN, Kelly was arrested while walking his dog Thursday evening in Chicago. On Friday, he appeared in a Chicago federal court Friday where US Magistrate Judge Sheila Finnegan delayed a decision on whether Kelly should be taken to New York and face charges there until he is arraigned in Chicago.

“A 13-count indictment against Kelly was released Friday in the Northern District of Illinois.
In the Illinois indictment, he is charged with one count of conspiracy to receive child pornography, two counts of receiving child pornography, four counts of producing child pornography, five counts of enticement of a minor to engage in criminal sexual activity, and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice.”

Over the years Kelly has vehemently denied any and all allegations against him. However, Homeland Security Special Agent-in-Charge Angel Melendez believes the singer has been engaged in sinister acts for decades.

“R. Kelly’s Enterprise was not only engaged in music; as alleged, for two decades the enterprise at the direction of R. Kelly preyed upon young women and teenagers whose dreams of meeting a superstar, soon turned into a nightmare of rape, child pornography and forced labor. The musician turned predator allegedly used his stardom to coax some victims into nefarious sex acts while certain members of his enterprise calculatingly facilitated the aberrant conduct,”

This is just one of many fallouts to occur following the Lifetime documentary-series “Surviving R. Kelly”. Previously, there was “a five-count indictment in the Eastern District of New York [that] accused Kelly of sexual exploitation of a child, kidnapping, forced labor and violations of the Mann Act involving the coercion and transportation of women and girls in interstate commerce to engage in illegal sexual activity from 1999 to the present.”
