Kelly, who turned 52 on Tuesday, has denied wrongdoing.

A Georgia man involved with a recent documentary detailing abuse allegations against R. Kelly told police the singer's manager threatened him.

Timothy reported Mason to the Henry County Police.

Rolling out brought you the story live as the "Surviving R. Kelly" documentary started to heat up over the weekend.

According to TMZ, the now-infamous rapper was partying at club V75 Chicago in the wee hours of Thursday morning when a caller told the police there was a warrant out for his arrest.

Savage told the officer that Mason had called him around 15:10 on 23 May and said: "I'm gonna do harm to you and your family, when I see you I'm gonna get you, I'm gonna (expletive) kill you".

The report says the case is being forwarded to the criminal investigations division for review.

"We can not do anything related to these allegations without the cooperation of victims and witnesses and that is why I'm here today, to encourage anyone who has information to please come forward", she said. I was sickened as a mother.

The accusers, all black women, said years after the trial that Kelly kept them locked up and used them for sex at his will.

"It is our job here at the Cook County State's Attorney's office to investigate claims in the interest of justice and public safety".

An attorney for Kelly did not immediately respond to TIME's request for comment.

A Cook County jury acquitted Kelly of all 14 counts of child pornography in 2008. Despite years of petitions and calls for Kelly's longtime label home, RCA Records, to part ways with the singer, he remained on the company's roster at press time.

The 32-year-old Artpop singer spoke out in a message on social media on Wednesday night (January 9). "No one has found any sex slaves or underage girls because there aren't any".

Steve Greenberg, Kelly's attorney, said in an emailed statement: "Mr. Kelly did not sexually abuse anybody, at anytime, not when he was in high school and not after".

"Who makes their assessment of the evidence based on reality TV?" he said.

Even decades-old allegations could be trouble for Kelly.
