Kelly, whose first name is Robert, was arrested at a Miami-Dade County hotel in Florida on Wednesday night. He was released from jail on bail around three hours after his arrest.
A statement issued by Kelly’s representative, Allan Mayer, said in a statement: “As far as we can tell, the charges all relate to R Kelly’s arrest last summer. In other words, there is nothing new here.”
The Grammy award-winning artist has been out on bond and awaiting trial on 21 counts of child pornography in Chicago, Illinois.
Those charges stem from a videotape authorities say shows him having sex with a 13-year-old girl. Kelly, 36, denies that charge.
