Some folks will have to pay the consequences for supporting the disgraced singer, Robert Kelly.
Like his former manager, Donnell Russell, who threatened to “shoot up” Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly screening. Donnell will be serving time in the slammer.
As reported on All Hip Hop, Donnell was sentenced to serve one year in jail for calling in a shooting that interrupted the screening in 2018. According to the report, Donnell was found guilty of threatening physical harm through interstate communication after making a phone call to NeueHouse.
Donnell told a Manhattan federal judge he “made bad judgments,” and he’s “not a horrible person,” KKTV reports. In November 2022, Russell was also given a 20-month prison sentence for harassing and intimidating one of Kelly’s victims.
R. Kelly is serving a 30-year sentence for sex trafficking and racketeering for his NY trial. The “Bump N’ Grind” singer had another federal trial in September in Chicago and was found guilty of producing child pornography and enticing girls for sex. He’ll be sentenced on February 23.
The fourth and final installment of Lifetime’s Surviving R Kelly will premiere as a two-night event on Jan. 2 and 3 at 8 p.m.
