As if R. Kelly didn't have enough legal woes, now his ex-lawyer, who saw him through child-porn charges more than a decade ago, told a Chicago newspaper columnist Friday that the R&B star was "guilty as hell."
Ed Genson, a famous Chicago defense attorney who says he's dying of cancer, might be in trouble for violating legal ethics rules, which say attorney-client privilege is sacrosanct and permanent unless the client lifts it.
No doubt Kelly would not be thrilled that his ex-defense lawyer is commenting on his guilt.
Steve Greenberg, Kelly's current defense attorney, told USA TODAY that Genson has been in and out of the hospital lately.
