R. Kelly’s former lawyer isn’t biting his tongue.

More than a decade after he helped Kelly beat child pornography charges, veteran attorney Ed Genson told the Chicago Sun Times that the singer was guilty, actually guilty of those crimes—”guilty as hell” to be more precise. The 77-year-old spoke candidly about his ex-client’s behavior, but said he doesn’t believe Kelly hasn’t “done anything inappropriate for years.” Why is he so sure? Because he convinced Kelly to take medication to suppress his sexual urges.

“I can say whatever I want, but we’ve got to do it fast. It would be nice to get it down so somebody knows besides me,” Genson told the outlet. “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.”

Despite his assertion that Kelly was guilty, Genson said he wasn’t conflicted about keeping this disgraced singer out of prison.

“I didn’t facilitate him. He had already done what he’d done,” explained Genson, who is battling terminal bile duct cancer. “I did facilitate him in the sense I kept him out of trouble for 10 years. I was vetting his records. I listened to them, which ones would make a judge mad.”
