After a brief delay, R. Kelly's former manager James Mason has officially turned himself into police after facing an outstanding arrest warrant was issued in Georgia last summer.
According to a report CNN published earlier today (Jan. 18), Mason surrendered to Georgia's Henry County Sheriff's Dept. after he was accused of making terroristic threats towards the family of Kelly's alleged victim Joycelyn Savage last year. Her father, Timothy Savage, told police that Mason sent him text messages that made him fear for his family's livelihood.
"I'm gonna do harm to you and your family, when I see you I'm gonna get you, I'm going to fucking kill you," reads Mason's alleged text message.
After Savage reported the incident in May of 2018, police issued an arrest warrant for a felony terroristic threats and acts in the summer. Mason has officially turned himself in, and was released on $10,000 bond.
"Let this be a message to R. Kelly's staff that we won't be bullied or threatened," Savage's lawyer told TMZ. "We will continue to pursue legal action against any and all threats to the safety of the Savage Family. Our goal has always been to bring Joycelyn Savage home safely and we will not be deterred."
Mason's surrender comes hours before NBC airs their new episode of Dateline, which is supposed to focus on women coming forward to speak about sexual misconduct allegations surrounding Kelly.
