Bill Cosby‘s right-hand man said that the legendary comic is having an “amazing” time behind bars, but still maintains that he did nothing wrong.
Andrew Wyatt, Cosby’s spokesman and longtime aide, talked to Philadelphia’s WCAU-TV about the convicted sex offender’s stint in a maximum security Pennsylvania prison.
Wyatt said that Cosby’s spirits remain high and the comedian enjoys talking to other inmates and encouraging them.
“Despite the circumstances, he said, ‘This is an amazing experience,’” Wyatt told the network.
“Mr. Cosby had prepared himself… He’s mentally strong. He’s just a strong man.”
Wyatt added that Cosby has lost weight and is not eating bread or drinking coffee.
“What’s funny about that — Mrs. Cosby has been trying to stop him from drinking coffee for 55 years and he said it took this to stop him from drinking coffee,” Wyatt said.
But Wyatt said that he is the only confidante that Cosby allows to visit him in prison. The disgraced comic does not want his wife or children to see him there.
Cosby is serving up to 10 years at SCI-Phoenix outside Philadelphia for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004.
The 81-year-old actor remains defiant, claiming he is innocent of any wrongdoing.
