R. Kelly has been arrested, again. This time, the controversial crooner has been pinched on federal sex trafficking charges.

As long was rumored, the Feds had R’uh on their radar.

The New York Times reports that on Thursday night (July 11), federal agents arrested him for charges that include child pornography.

The “I Believe I Can Fly” singer was already under indictment in Chicago for aggravated sexual assault and abuse, which are state charges. He also caught 11 more felony charges in May.

The new 13 count indictment includes charges of child pornography, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Kelly was arrested around 7 p.m., while he was out walking his dog near his home at…wait for it…Trump Tower.

Dressember Puts Dresses to Work Against Sex Trafficking

Many people go through rotations of dresses every December for countless holiday and New Year’s parties, but for those participating in Dressember, getting dolled up comes with a dose of do-gooding.
“Dressember is an annual campaign where people wear dresses every day during the month of December as a way to raise awareness and money for anti-trafficking organizations,” the organization’s co-founder and chief executive officer Blythe Hill explains. “We focus specifically on sex trafficking, but there are all forms of trafficking as well that go into it. “
Hill got the idea for the dress-a-day style challenge in college, and later connected it with her passion for eradicating sex trafficking.
“There are more people alive today in slavery than ever before in history – the numbers are upwards of 36 million people. It’s a $ 150 billion industry and the vast majority of people trapped in trafficking are women and girls.

Ricky Martin uses music to tackle trafficking of children

Ricky Martin performs at the iHeartRadio Theater Los Angeles in Burbank, CaliforniaThirty years after Ricky Martin got his start in music in the Puerto Rican kids' group "Menudo," the Grammy-winning singer uses his music and celebrity to help fight against the trafficking of children. Fresh off a new album, "A Quien Quiera Escuchar," the 43-year-old Martin said he relishes getting in front of a crowd to talk about children forced into prostitution and pornography. "Not only in Puerto Rico, all over the world, here in the United States, huge numbers, when it comes to kids that are becoming slaves," Martin told Reuters in an interview this week. The "Livin' la Vida Loca" singer opened a center in Puerto Rico last year to combat oppression against children.
