R. Kellythe alleged manager is facing more legal consequences over what the federations claim are attempts to intervene for the embarrassed singer.
Donnell Russell has just been indicted by the U.S. Department of Justice for a suspected threat to shoot a NYC theater in December 2018 when the Lifetime documentary, “Surviving R. Kelly,” was showing there.
The federations claim that Russell admitted to first sending a letter of rest and wish trying to end the review – but when that failed, prosecutors claim he called threat of shooting … and successfully recorded the event, which is being followed by a number of Kelly’s alleged victims.
TMZ broke the story … law enforcement sources told us an associate of R. Kelly was one person of interest over an alleged threat that came just 20 minutes before the show started. Russell was charged with 1 count of conspiracy to commit bodily harm and 1 count of threat of bodily harm. Each charge carries a maximum sentence of 5 years in prison. This, of course, is just the tip of the legal iceberg for Russell.
As we reported … Russell is also 1 of 3 people allegedly charged teasing and intimidating witnesses in Kelly criminal cases.
