Police Issue Arrest Warrant for Ex-Manager of R. Kelly

HeadlineJan 10, 2019

CNN reports that police have issued an arrest warrant for James Mason, the former manager for pop star R. Kelly. Mason is accused of threatening to kill the father of Joycelyn Savage, who alleges R. Kelly is holding his daughter against her will in an abusive cult. A police report obtained by CNN quotes Mason as threatening Savage with the words, “I’m gonna do harm to you and your family, when I see you I’m gonna get you, I’m going to f—-ing kill you.” R. Kelly has been accused of sexual assault, predatory behavior and pedophilia for two decades but has never been criminally convicted. In Chicago, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx says her office is investigating “numerous” complaints against R. Kelly and has encouraged other victims to step forward.
