If we're going to be honest, Kellz has already lost in the court of public opinion.
TMZ reports Robert believes it will be impossible for him to get a fair trial in the aftermath of Lifetime's docuseries, "Surviving R. Kelly," and nonstop media coverage, especially in his hometown of Chicago.
As one reported source put it ...
"There isn't a person in Cook County who hasn't heard all the hateful things said about him."
Toine360 was told R. Kelly believes even if he presents evidence proving his innocence, the jury will still find him guilty. The R&B singers team say he's moved on from panic attacks and has been in a depressed meltdown for days.
As reported on Toine360.com ... Cook County prosecutors hit R. Kelly with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse Friday morning. There are a total of 4 alleged victims, 3 of whom were between the ages of 13 to 16.
Attorney Michael Avenatti also released images from the video he submitted to the State's Attorney, showing what appears to be R. Kelly. He says the video shows the singer having sex with a 14-year-old girl.
Avenatti blasted R. Kelly's enablers as well -- lawyers, agents, managers and others whom he says stood idly by as the singer sexually abused girls -- and says he won't stop until they're all brought to justice.
