A former manager for R. Kelly turned himself in Friday for allegedly threatening a Georgia man who accused the singer of sexual abuse, authorities said.
Henry James Mason surrendered to Henry County Sheriff’s deputies at 9 a.m. ET and was booked on one count of allegedly making terroristic threats, a department spokeswoman said.
He posted a $10,000 bond and was released within minutes, the spokeswoman added.
It wasn’t immediately clear if Mason had an attorney or when he stopped working with Kelly.
A Georgia couple, Timothy and Jonjelyn Savage, claim their daughter was sexually abused and is being held against her will by Kelly, in accusations made in the Lifetime docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly.”
Kelly has denied the allegations and in a video released in May 2018, Joycelyn Savage denied she was being held against her will.
Timothy Savage has accused R. Kelly’s former manager, Mason, of threatening him.
The arrest comes on the heels of a report by Billboard that Sony and R. Kelly have agreed to part ways. Kelly had been signed to Sony since the beginning of his career in the early 1990s, and has been under contract at RCA since 2012
