‘Surviving R. Kelly’: Arrest warrant filed for singer’s ex-manager for allegedly threatening ‘sex cult’ accusers

Georgia authorities reportedly filed an arrest warrant for R. Kelly’s manager, who allegedly threatened to kill a man who accused Kelly of holding his daughter captive in Lifetime’s “Surviving R. Kelly.”

From CNN, Jocelyn Savage’s father, Timothy Savage, reported the alleged May 2018 encounter with James Mason to Henry County police. The father accused Mason of threatening his life if he spoke out against Kelly, 51, for the six-part docuseries.

WGCL reporter Jonathan Carlson tweeted that authorities have been unable to locate Mason, who sources reportedly said has “been on the road.”

The Blast reported that Timothy also called police to his Georgia home on January 3 and accused Kelly’s current manager, Don Russell, of texting them “it would be best for him and his family if the documentary does not air” on the morning of the docuseries’ premiere. Responding officers reportedly listened to audio where Russell accused the parents of providing conflicting information and threatened to release information to discredit Timothy.

According to the outlet, Russell claimed the information he threatened to leak would destroy Timothy’s reputation, business, and family.

The Savages claimed the 23-year-old has been living with Kelly since she was 19, with her concerned father accusing the singer of brainwashing her. CNN reported that Jocelyn broke her silence in 2017 to deny claims that Kelly was holding her against her will.

Despite her claims, TMZ recently reported that prosecutors in Fulton County, Georgia, are investigating R. Kelly regarding claims made in “Surviving R. Kelly.” Georgia—specifically Johns Creek—is one of two locations where Kelly’s accused of holding women against their will. The “I Wish” singer was also accused of imprisoning sex slaves in his Chicago, Illinois, residence.
