AceShowbiz - R. Kelly's manager James Mason will reportedly surrender to authorities on Wednesday, January 16 over claims he intimidated and threatened the family of one of the singer's alleged victims.
Police officers in Georgia announced in August (2018) that they had issued a warrant to arrest Mason for "terroristic threats and acts" after investigating claims made by Timothy Savage, the father of Joycelyn, who is allegedly part of Kelly's "sex cult". Savage claimed Mason had called him up and threatened to harm him and his family.
According to The Blast, Mason will surrender to the authorities in Henry County on Wednesday. Gerald Griggs, Savage's attorney, told the publication the family had been contacted by the District Attorney this week and asked if they objected to Mason being given bail after he turns himself in. The family agreed to bail, on the condition that Mason is given a restraining order and has "no contact" with them.
Mason is accused of threatening the family after Joycelyn's parents, who recently appeared in documentary "Surviving R. Kelly", went public with claims that their daughter was being held by Kelly against her will, claims Joycelyn has denied.
The music executive reportedly told Savage on the phone,"I'm gonna do harm to you and your family, when I see you I'm gonna get you, I'm going to f**king kill you."
Another R. Kelly manager, Don Russell, is being investigated for harassment after allegedly threatening Savage and his wife Jonjelyn over their appearance in the Lifetime docuseries, which aired earlier this month.
Following its broadcast, police in Georgia launched an investigation into the claims made in the program.
Kelly has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct.
