Another One. New Accuser Tracy Sampson Alleges R. Kelly Kissed Her as a Teen as Former Manager Surrenders to Threats Warrant

Animated GIF

A woman who said she began a sexual relationship with embattled Chicago R&B singer R. Kelly when she was 16 years old shares her story on a “Dateline NBC” special scheduled to air Friday.

Sampson opened up about her alleged experience with the disgraced musician in a new on-camera interview with Dateline — which was previewed on Friday’s morning’s broadcast of the Today show — and is set to air in its entirety tonight on NBC. 

According to Sampson, Kelly forcibly kissed her before coaxing her into a sexual relationship. She said the “Ignition” singer asked her, “Can I kiss you?” Sampson recounted, “And I was like, ‘No,'” to which he responded, “‘Well, give me a hug.’ And then, like, when I gave him a hug he just started kissing me.”

Sampson said that she later felt as though she “was in love with him.” The now-36-year-old added, “I was in love with him. I just didn’t know what to do. Like, I didn’t know if this was normal. I didn’t know if this is how adults acted. Like, I just didn’t know. I didn’t know,” Sampson said. She also shared her story with the Washington Post last year.

His attorney, Steve Greenberg, told “Dateline” that “every one” of Kelly’s accusers is lying.

“The record companies are abandoning him. Other artists are all of a sudden acting like they’re shocked by these rumors that are floating around. He’s having a very difficult time, but he’s strong, he’s tough. He wants to put out his music and continue performing for people. And I expect that’s what he’ll be able to do,” Greenberg said.


In similar news, R. Kelly’s former manager has turned himself into Georgia authorities on a charge of threatening a man who alleges that Kelly has indoctrinated his daughter into a sex cult.

Henry James Mason, 52, is accused of threatening to harm Timothy Savage, who was prominently featured in the Lifetime docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly.” Savage alleges that Kelly has brainwashed his daughter, Joycelyn, whom Savage has not seen in three years.

According to the Henry Herald, Mason is alleged to have sent threatening texts to Savage, and to have told him over the phone, “I’m gonna do harm to you and your family, when I see you I’m gonna get you, I’m going to f—ing kill you.”

One of the threats was reportedly overheard by a Henry County police officer.

A warrant was issued for Mason’s arrest last July, but he did not surrender to Henry County Sheriff’s Office until Friday morning. He was released on $10,000 bond.
