R. Kelly is a convicted felon, even his prime days in the music industry were always surrounded by several sexual abuse allegations. It seems a fan of the disgraced singer isn’t happy with the ongoing prosecution.

According to Complex, a man was taken in custody this weekend by the authorities in Chicago and charged with threatening prosecutors in the R. Kelly case. The man was identified as Christopher Gunn.

Since his arrest on Saturday, Gunn has been charged in a complaint with making threats against the prosecutors. This also means, if convicted, he could face up to five years in prison. It was also noted that this person was present for at least one day of Kelly’s 2021 trial.

Chicago Tribune reported that Gunn shared a YouTube video in which he threatened to “storm” the U.S. attorney’s office in New York. Not only that, but Gunn has also seemingly made similar threats against the victims who testified at the singer’s trial.

Kelly is currently incarcerated on several charges, including child pornography and minor exploitation. He is currently awaiting sentencing, which is set for this Wednesday. Depending on how things go, the disgraced singer could spend more than two decades in prison.
