Kelly, who is jailed in Chicago on sexual abuse and other counts, was charged in Minnesota in August with soliciting the girl after meeting her before a concert in Minneapolis.

Agents from the FDLE and Pennsylvania State Police took Vazquez into custody in Pittsburgh on Tuesday morning on one count of computer pornography – solicitation of a child – and one count of providing obscene material to minors.

The FDLE said its investigation began last month when agents became aware of a sexual relationship and a 13-year-old female victim, who is now 15. The two continued having a relationship over text messages, and the child received a video in July from Vazquez "in which he is shown performing a sex act." Vazquez also sent texts insinuating that the two would meet up after the baseball season for sex.
