Disgraced singer R. Kelly has touched down in New Jersey, as the fallen r&b star is scheduled to appear before a judge in the Brooklyn Federal Court later on today.

Kelly's arrival was captured by news cameras and saw the star wearing a tan prison shirt and orange shoes while handcuffed, a far cry from his former lavish life.

But if Kelly was hoping to get his NY business over and done with today, one of his lawyers has revealed that the arraignment may be delayed as he was not able to find his client.

"I have spent the hours that followed his landing on the phone with the BOP at both New York MCC and Brooklyn MDC trying to locate my client, but no one would provide that information to me, even recognizing I am his attorney, instead directing me to bop.gov to find out where he would be," his lawyer Douglas Anton wrote to the judge.

He is scheduled in court at 10.30 am ET.
