The 52-year-old disgraced singer was arrested by New York police detectives and Homeland Security investigators. He will be taken to New York, sources told NBC News.

R. Kelly has been facing sexual abuse allegations for two decades and he has denied the previous charges. He recently pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated sexual abuse in a case involving four women. Three of the women were minors when the alleged abuse happened.

11 more counts of sexual assault and sexual abuse surfaced back in May.
