Singer R. Kelly, who is already facing sexual abuse-related charges in Illinois, was arrested by federal agents on sex trafficking charges while walking his dog in Chicago on Thursday night. Now, Dream Hampton, the woman behind the Surviving R. Kelly documentary, is celebrating the occasion, as well as providing insight into some of the evidence that apparently secured his arrest.
In a series of tweets on Thursday night, Hampton wrote, “This is the one. It’s a wrap. Finally,” before crediting retrograde for delivering karma.

A good retrograde will deliver well earned karma to your door, handling unfinished business. This one began with an eclipse too. Robert is being collected.— dream hampton (@dreamhampton) July 12, 2019
The filmmaker also retweeted a message she posted on Wednesday, where she said that associates who booked flights for underage girls would likely be the ones to come forward with much-needed evidence against the R&B singer, as well as billionaire financier Jeffery Epstein.
In R Kelly and Jeffrey Epstein's cases, it'll be the assistants, who were charged with booking flights for underage girls, a task that requires, you know, birthdays, who'll flip on these monsters.— dream hampton (@dreamhampton) July 10, 2019
According to a report from The Blast, investigators obtained a plane ticket in Azriel Clary’s name. Clary, 21, defended her relationship with R. Kelly in an interview with CBS This Morning in March, dismissing allegations that she had been brainwashed by the singer.
An assistant, who didn't want to go to prison, gave the Feds this evidence. I'm sure. https://t.co/m3T9alpEGf— dream hampton (@dreamhampton) July 12, 2019
People are now thanking Hampton for the awareness that she brought to Kelly’s case, and the severity of his alleged actions, by collecting evidence and witnesses for the Lifetime docuseries.

Thank you for everything you’ve done to bring that monster to justice. There are so many girls and women who are safer tonight - because of you.
Please don’t get eaten by a shark.
“There are so many girls and women who are safer tonight – because of you,” one wrote.
Kelly’s lawyer, Steve Greenberg, released a statement on the arrest on Friday morning, stating that the singer “was aware of the investigations and the charges were not a surprise.”
Kelly is due in federal court in Chicago on Friday.
