New details about R. Kelly's most recent arrest on federal sex crime charges are emerging. Apparently, people in his inner circle helped bring him up on federal charges. Meanwhile, his two girlfriends - Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary - have been kicked out of his Trump Tower apartment in Chicago. Deets inside...

Now we know what happened behind-the-scenes that led up to the recent arrest of R. Kelly.

On Thursday (July 11th), NYPD detectives and Homeland Security Investigation agents in Chicago rolled up on the 52-year-old singer while he was walking his dog to arrest him over a 13-count indictment related to child pornography and other federal crimes, including four counts of producing child pornography and two counts of receiving child pornography.

Turns out, Northern District of Illinois investigators reportedly uncovered over 20 tapes that feature the Grammy Award winner allegedly engaging in sexual activities with minors.

So, how did the feds get the tapes now?

Folks in Kelly's inner circle - including past and present enablers and employees - reportedly turned them over to police. It's unclear if the tapes were turned over in exchange for immunity, although two of Kelly's former employees have been charged. Kelly's former manager Derrel McDavid and employee Milton "June" Brown have also been indicted in Chicago on allegations that they helped Kelly pay hundreds and thousands of dollars to recover kiddie porn tapes and pressured witnesses in his 2008 child pornography case.

According to Gerald Griggs - the lawyer for Joycelyn Savage’s family - and federal law enforcement sources, the tapes show multiple victims that were reportedly underage. Attorney Griggs claims the videos were what the feds needed to secure indictments for sex crimes, including child pornography.

In addition to those charges, the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer is facing a separate indictment in Brooklyn, where he has been charged with one count of racketeering and four counts of violating the Mann Act, which prohibits transporting people across state lines for the purpose of prostitution.

In May, the Cook County state attorney's office filed new sex abuse charges against the singer, adding 11 felony counts of sexual abuse. Some of the charges carry a potential sentence of up to 30 years in prison - the most serious he has faced. Kelly has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Kelly also faces separate state sex-related charges in Illinois involving four women, three of whom were minors when the alleged abuse occurred. He has denied all allegations.

It's being reported R. Kelly's two girlfriends - Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary - have been evicted from his Trump Tower apartment in Chicago following the federal indictment. Sources tell The Blast Joycelyn and Azriel were kicked out of the residence and that the apartment has been taken over by federal officials.

Attorney Griggs told The Blast that Joycelyn's mother, Jonjelyn, has discovered where her daughter is staying and is currently working on keeping "consistent contact" while trying to arrange a meeting. The Savage Family said they're "ready to reunite" with their daughter and let "whatever happened in the past" to be over. However, TMZ reports Joycelyn and Azriel Clary are with R. Kelly's people at an undisclosed location in Chicago and their parents don't know where they are.

The Savages have accused Kelly of brainwashing their daughter for years. In an interview with "CBS This Morning" anchor Gayle King, both Joycelyn and Azriel confirmed they were with Kelly on their own free will and even defended the embattled singer.

The Savages have been fighting relentlessly to get their daughter back. After Kelly's arrest, the singer's spokesperson Darrell Johnson held a news conference that was interrupted by Joycelyn's dad demanding to know the whereabouts of his daughter. You can catch that HERE.

Alleged victim Jerhonda Pace - who stared in "Surviving R. Kelly" and is allegedly one of the victims in one of his cases - is concerned there may be a suicide pact betwen the girls.
