R. Kelly Threatened With Eviction From Chicago Studio

R. Kelly Threatened With Eviction From Chicago Studio

An arrest warrant has been issued over the summer for R. Kelly's former manager, James Mason, after Mason was accused of threatening to kill the father of Joycelyn Savage, one of the women featured in "Surviving R. Kelly".

Kelly's award winning career has been shadowed by sexual misconduct allegations for more than two decades.

In an incident report obtained by CNN, Timothy Savage stated that Mason said, "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". Clearly unhappy with his business partner choosing to continue a working relationship with Kelly, Dash said that was the moment he knew "Roc-A-Fella was defunct".

Chris Hopper, a spokesperson for the Fulton County DA's office, had no comment on whether or not an investigation into Kelly is indeed underway.

After they described their experiences to the Sun-Times, both women said they called the phone number that Foxx publicized Tuesday evening - the direct line to the state's attorney's office's Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Division - and left messages after their calls went straight to voicemail.




R. Kelly is not anxious a bit about possible criminal investigations in two states over accusations he's holding women as sex slaves in the documentary "Surviving R. Kelly".

R. Kelly is being evicted from his Chicago music studio for failure to pay his rent, The Blast reports. We're told investigators were flooded with calls once the docuseries aired. She said she ran away from home in Georgia, met Kelly in Florida and eventually came back to Chicago with him. Families who have tried to rescue their daughters whom they say Kelly has taken captive also appeared in the series.

Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx called on alleged victims of R. Kelly to come forward at a media conference Tuesday.

Multiple times in the past, Kelly has been defiant as criticism against him has crested, so such an appearance would not seem out of character. "But no one said nothing".

Surviving R Kelly will air in the United Kingdom on Crime & Investigation on Tuesday, February 5, at 10pm. His albums continued to top charts while he was on trial for child pornography, and many of his hit songs, like "I Believe I Can Fly" and "Ignition (Remix)", are still played widely.
