R. Kelly's former manager, James Mason, has been indicted in Georgia on felony charges for  making "terroristic threats" against the father of one of the beleaguered R&B singer and alleged sexual predator's girlfriends, Joycelyn Savage.   

According to TMZ, which first reported the news on Thursday (June 6), if convicted, Mason would face a prison sentence of between one and 10 years. In May 2018, Joycelyn's father, Timothy Savage, reportedly told police officers that Mason said to him, "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."

After the Henry County Sherriff's Department issued an arrest warrant for Mason in August 2018, he turned himself in. He was later set free on a $10,000 bond and told to steer clear of the Savage family. 

It was also revealed on Thursday that R. Kelly is expected to plead not guilty to 11 new sex-assault charges at his Cook County arraignment. The new counts include four aggravated criminal sexual assault ones, with each carrying a maximum prison term of 30 years.
