The threat allegations (and reported evidence of such) pinned against R. Kelly and his team from several of the shamed R&B singer’s victims are stretching his legal team thin, but it appears someone’s finally folded.
According to The Blast, James Mason is reportedly turning himself over to Georgia law authorities on Wednesday (January 16) after learning of his arrest warrant. His offense? “Terroristic threats and acts,” the site reports, which the family of alleged sex cult victim Joycelyn Savage exposed.
More specifically, whether the relationship was consensual or not. In a presumable attempt to back them off, Mason reportedly told Joycelyn’s father, Timothy Savage, that he would “do harm” to him and his family and that he would kill him. Despite the apparent tensions between both parties, the Savage family did opt not to object to a judge giving Mason bail once he turned himself in, however, the site adds. Just as long as he agrees to have zero contact with them, as Griggs also reportedly stated that adhering to a restraining order will be one of Mason’s conditions while out on bail.
As the site previously reported that Savage also named another of Kelly’s former managers, Don Russell, for terroristic threats with regard to the family’s inclusion in Surviving R. Kelly. Complete with phone calls and text messages (right in police’s presence), Russell is reportedly under investigation in light of the alleged harassment.
Welp, there’s two (almost) down…
