R. Kelly had to take Libido shots to keep himself from going to prison.
“Guilty as hell” is how R. Kelly‘s former attorney describes the R&B legend while speaking from his death bed. Veteran Chicago attorney Ed Genson represented Kelly in his 2008 child pornography case in which he was acquitted. Genson is battling terminal cancer and has 90 days to live, per his doctors. Before he passes on, the well-known attorney did an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times, where the 77-year-old admitted that his client is guilty of the charges brought against him.
There is nothing like a deathbed confession. After all, R. Kelly is unlikely to sue him since he doesn’t have much time to live. “I don’t think he’s done anything inappropriate for years,” Genson said. “I’ll tell you a secret: I had him go to a doctor to get shots, libido-killing shots. That’s why he didn’t get arrested for anything else.”
R. Kelly is expected to be released from jail following his arrest this week for unpaid child support. In a riveting and emotional interview with Gayle King, the R&B icon proclaimed his innocence, saying he is not running a sex cult and is not holding young girls hostage.
Genson was the lawyer who kept R. Kelly from going to prison, but he is not his current lawyer and only time will tell if he will be able to escape prison this time around. The singer was indicted on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sex abuse by a Cooke County prosecutor who is now gunning to put him away for a very long time. Genson denied that he enabled R. Kelly’s alleged sexual abuses, but he is saying that he was guilty as charged.
The veteran attorney also said that he was instrumental in the creation of R. Kelly’s mega-hit “Ignition.”
