Reclusive R&B star D'ANGELO was arrested in New York on Saturday morning (06Mar10) after mistaking a police officer for a prostitute.
The Grammy Award-winning singer, real name Michael Archer, approached the undercover cop and offered her cash for oral sex.
The star's arrest came during a break in recording his comeback album, his first since 2000's Voodoo.
Reports suggest police found $12,000 (£7,500) in cash during a post-arrest search of his Range Rover.
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
The film will be the first in the Marvel Cinematic Universe led by a person of colour.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
