R. Kelly is currently behind bars, but there are reportedly more indictments to follow in among his staffers following last week's arrests.

Kelly was arrested and taken into custody by New York police detectives as well as officials from the Department of Homeland Security, law enforcement sources said. He was walking his dog at the time.

Kelly's former manager, Derrel McDavid, who was also charged in facilitating and covering up Kelly's crimes and have pleaded not guilty. 

"Kelly and McDavid learned that multiple videos were missing from Kelly's collection," the indictment reads.

"Kelly, McDavid, and others agreed to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars on Kelly's behalf to victims, witnesses, and others to ensure that they would not cooperate with law enforcement."

 McDavid is accused of helping cover up Kelly's alleged crimes, paying hush money to victims and collecting incriminating tapes of Kelly with underaged girls to prevent their release. McDavid pleaded not guilty to each of the four federal charges Friday and was released on a $500,000 bond. He's due back in court this week.

Another employee, Milton "June" Brown, is facing federal charges related to Kelly's alleged sex crimes. 

Brown, who currently lives in Las Vegas, has worked for Kelly since the 1990s. Brown served as Kelly's personal assistant, among other roles, and still helps when needed, per CBS2. According to the indictment, Brown conspired to receive three videos containing child pornography. He has not yet appeared in court but is scheduled to appear this week.

Sources familiar with the federal investigation told The Blast, "more indictments are on the way" concerning Kelly's vast network of staff over the years who have helped cover his heinous crimes.
