An arrest warrant has been issued for R.Kelly’s manager after he allegedly made a death threat against the father of the singer’s girlfriend.
TMZ gathered that James Mason is reportedly wanted in Georgia for allegedly threatening to kill the father of one of Kelly’s girlfriends, Joycelyn Savage.
Joycelyn’s father Timothy Savage went to police in May claiming James called him and 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*****g kill you.’
Recall that just last year,Timothy and the Savage family claimed Kelly had made Joycelyn one of his sex slaves and was keeping her captive, a idea she denied in a social media video and which was also denied by the 51-year-old singer.
Joycelyn has been living with the ‘I believe I can fly’ singer or a year and her family claim they have been unable to contact her.
Mason supposedly told TMZ his lawyers have contacted the police and that he will cooperate with their investigation, while denying he threatened Joycelyn’s father.
Last July Joycelyn, now 22, came forward after her family made astonishing claims that she was being held against her will by the R&B singer and that he has ‘brainwashed’ her.
She released a video to insist that was not the case afterwards, saying: ‘I’m no hostage!’
She said: ‘I’m 21, I’m about to be 22 in a few days and I just mainly want to say that I am in a happy place with my life and I’m not being brainwashed or anything like that.
‘It just came to a point where it definitely has got out of hand. I’m totally fine. I’m happy where I’m at and everything is OK with me.’

Addressing her parents’ concern, she said: ‘I don’t really know what’s going on with that,’ she said of their fears on Monday. ‘I’m very heartbroken over what’s going on with this situation because it’s getting to a point where it’s getting too much’.
