R. Kelly’s alleged manager is being accused of threatening to shoot up the ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ screening in 2018.
Donnell Russell has just been charged by the U.S. Department of Justice for an alleged threat to shoot up an NYC theater in December 2018 when the Lifetime documentary, “Surviving R. Kelly,” was being screened there.
The feds claim Russell admitted to first sending a cease-and-desist letter trying to end the screening — but when that failed, prosecutors allege he phoned in the shooting threat … and successfully nixed the event, which was being attended by a number of Kelly’s alleged victims.
TMZ broke the story … law enforcement sources told us an R. Kelly associate was a person of interest over an alleged threat that came in just 20 minutes before the start of the screening. Russell was charged with 1 count of conspiracy to threaten physical harm and 1 count of threatening physical harm. Each charge carries a max 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 charged for allegedly harassing and intimidating witnesses in Kelly’s criminal cases.
We don’t need a trial to know this man is guilty as sin.
