R. Kelly‘s former manager has surrendered to authorities after going on the run following being charged with terroristic threats.
Henry James Mason turned himself in to the Henry County Sheriff in Georgia, according to WSBTV in Atlanta. He had been charged with terroristic threats after allegedly threatening the family of Joycelyn Savage back in May.
As The Blast first reported, Savage’s family was notified that Mason would be surrendering and agreed to let Mason receive bond as long as a no-contact order was part of his conditions for release.
It’s unclear if Mason will be offered the same deal by authorities, especially after he went on the run and forced a “Wanted” poster to be released.
Gerald Griggs, attorney for the Savage family, tells The Blast, “Let this be a message to R. Kelly’s staff that we won’t be bullied or threatened. We will continue to pursue legal action against any and all threats to the safety of the Savage family.”
Mason is not the only R. Kelly manager with legal issues, as manager Don Russell is also under investigation for allegedly threatening the same family over their participation in the Lifetime docu-series, “Surviving R. Kelly.”
