R. Kelly’s manager has been accused of threatening the parents of the singer’s alleged sex cult victim Joycelyn Savage for participating in Lifetime’s damning “Surviving R. Kelly” documentary.
The six-part series, which chronicled the sex crimes levelled against the R&B singer, debuted in America last week (ends January 04), causing a storm of controversy and threats from Kelly to sue everyone involved.
Now, according to a police report obtained by The Blast, Timothy Savage called police to his Georgia home last week (January 03), claiming he was receiving threats from the singer’s manager Don Russell.
Savage’s daughter is among the women believed to be part of Kelly’s alleged sex cult. She has denied the claim, but Joycelyn’s parents have continued to fight and believe she has been brainwashed by the singer.
Her father told police that Russell advised him that “it would be best for him and his family if the documentary does not air”.
Reports suggest police officials were with Savage when Russell made a call and accused Timothy of providing false information to Lifetime bosses.
The report was made for “harassing communications”, and forwarded to officials at the U.S. Criminal Investigations Department.
