The singer was taken into custody in Chicago by federal agents and accused in a 13-count indictment, officials said.
The singer R. Kelly, already under indictment in Chicago on state charges of aggravated sexual assault and abuse, was arrested on Thursday night by federal agents and accused of child pornography and other federal crimes, officials said.
Joseph D. Fitzpatrick, an assistant United States attorney in the Northern District of Illinois, said Mr. Kelly was arrested in Chicago on a 13-count federal indictment.
“The indictment includes charges of child pornography, enticement of a minor, and obstruction of justice,” Mr. Fitzpatrick said.
The federal charges deepen the legal morass for Mr. Kelly, who had been dogged by allegations of sexual misconduct for decades but was acquitted on state child pornography charges in 2008.
Mr. Kelly, whose real name is Robert S. Kelly, already faces more than a dozen state felony charges related to sexual abuse accusations in Chicago involving four women, three of whom were underage at the time of the alleged crimes, prosecutors said.
He was charged with 10 state counts in February, with more state charges filed against him in May.
