R. Kelly has been hit with new charges, as New York federal prosecutors seek to prove the disgraced singer, as well as members of his entourage, pursued women and underage girls to recruit them to have sex with the R&B star.

Kelly now facing nine charges in New York and 13 charges in Illinois, where he is accused of sexually abusing underage girls and conspiring with two former employees to rig his 2008 child-pornography trial in Cook County.
