According to TMZ, James Mason was indicted Thursday morning in Georgia.
Mason is facing a felony count for threatening Timothy Savage, the father of one of Kelly’s girlfriends. Joycelyn Savage’s family have claimed she is being brainwashed by Kelly in order to keep her from leaving him.
The attorney for the Savage family, Gerald A. Griggs, responded to Mason’s indictment, saying, “Today’s indictment of Henry James Mason, former manager of R Kelly, further underscores the public accountability that victims and families are pressing on R Kelly and his team.
He continued, “The Savage family will not be bullied or threatened in their quest to reunite with Joycelyn. Let this be a message to all associates of Robert Sylvester Kelly that the Savages are serious about justice and accountability.”
Joycelyn Savage insists she is not being held without her consent. Earlier this year, CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King sat down with Joycelyn and fellow R. Kelly girlfriend Azriel Clary. The highly-publicized interview featured both women defending the Grammy winner against allegations of abuse and misconduct.
