R. Kelly is back in the slammer after being arrested on Federal sex trafficking charges while walking his dog in Chicago.

This is not a good year for R. Kelly. The R&B crooner is fresh off legal drama with a slew of indictments in Chicago for aggravated criminal sexual abuse in February, and he was hit with another 11 additional charges on top of the original 10 in May. Now he’s been scooped up on Federal sex crimes charges in Chicago.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Norther District of Illinois says he faces a new 13-count indictment for crimes including child pornography and obstruction of justice, the latter stemming from his attempted influence in a case in Atlanta.

Since the Lifetime documentary about R. Kelly’s potential sex crimes and history aired, public outcry has forced the hand of many jurisdictions to charge the singer. Additional witnesses and potential victims have also come forward. He’s been accused of having a “sex cult,” where he keeps young women against their will and forcing them to perform sex acts.

The five count indictment against R. Kelly will be unsealed today after a hearing in court.

His manager has spoken following the indictment, saying that Kelly maintains his innocence.
