R. Kelly’s Lawyer on Kim Foxx
Out of Line with ‘Pedo’ Comment …
Her Office is Dysfunctional
R. Kelly‘s legal team thinks Kim Foxx calling the singer a “pedophile” before he’s even been given a fair trial is a clear look into how her office is run … totally dysfunctional.
Kelly’s attorney, Steven Greenberg, tells TMZ … Foxx’s texts to a fellow staffer — in which she implicitly referred to his client as a pedo in comparing his case to Jussie Smollett‘s — was outrageous, considering Kelly hasn’t been convicted of any such crime.
Greenberg says Foxx is letting her personal biases color the way she characterizes Kelly’s case — which she implied was a way bigger deal than Jussie’s in her correspondence that was made public Tuesday.
As we reported … Foxx called Jussie a “washed up celeb” who’d been slapped with 16 felony counts, while going on to indirectly compare that to R. Kelly only getting charged with 10 counts … saying there was a discrepancy there as far as priorities go.
Of course, her office ultimately dropped all the charges against Jussie.
Greenberg tells us that the fact that Foxx is even having these types of conversations with her staff in this manner paints a larger picture about the Cook County State Attorney’s Office … he calls it “dysfunctional and chaotic.” He also thinks Foxx lacks objectivity.
That said, Greenberg says he isn’t calling for Foxx to be removed from the Kelly case just yet. He tells us there’s evidence and discovery he wants to get his hands on first before doing anything.
Greenberg adds … once he and his team get everything they need, they’ll make a decision on what to ask as far as Foxx’s involvement is concerned.
