Chicago singer R. Kelly‘s attorney is seeing the negative in Jussie Smollett‘s positive felony case outcome. The crooner’s legal muscle has weighed-in on the aftermath of the “Empire” star having his nightmare dismissed.

According to Steve Greenberg, he believes Jussie’s miracle could ultimately hurt Kelly’s own case.

He says, “I think it makes it more difficult for a friendly disposition because they’re going to be extremely reluctant to admit they brought these cases with scant evidence or that there are any other problems.” Greenberg adds State’s Attorney Kim Foxx and her team may now view Kelly’s case as a chance to redeem themselves after taking such intense heat from the City of Chicago and for that matter the nation for their decision to cut the actor loose.

Last week, New York rapper 50 Cent trolled Jussie with a Kelly meme.

A few nights ago, R&B singer and former “Empire” guest star Ne-Yo said he never believed Jussie staged his attack.

Last Tuesday, reports emerged about Smollett having his case dropped after initially facing serious jail time.

Smollett, 36, was seen arriving at a Chicago courtroom around 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday for an emergency hearing. Following his court appearance, his attorneys released a statement saying that the actor’s “record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him.” (NBC News)
