Caged creep Bill Cosby is America’s most pampered prisoner, sources said — the convicted sex predator is idolized and treated like a VIP behind bars despite being held in a maximum-security lockup!
The revelation is likely to spark outrage after 81-year-old Cosby — now inmate NN7687 — was caught duping starstruck prison staff to cater to his every whim.
In an explosive dossier containing internal emails and official documents obtained exclusively by RadarOnline.com through the Freedom of Information Act, as well as a firsthand account from a former inmate, it is revealed Cosby dines as if he’s staying at a five-star hotel by scarfing down bonus commissary orders because he refuses to chow on typical prison food.
He’s free to watch TV in his cell and access private emails with a personal computer tablet to burn time since he’s refusing to lift a finger and work for 40 cents an hour.
The disgraced comedian even has the Pennsylvania governor’s office checking in on him daily while prison administrators work to repair his shattered reputation by feeding information to select media outlets.
“In jail, Mr. Cosby is No. 1,” former SCI Phoenix inmate Phil DiPietro told Radar in an interview.
Days after DiPietro — who recently completed a short sentence — was placed at SCI Phoenix, he found a bumbling Cosby being escorted to the new wing by two prison staffers and several guards.
“You wouldn’t believe the luxuries afforded to him. He has more privacy and help than if he was back living at his estate!” said DiPietro.
On Sept. 25, 2018, Cosby arrived at SCI Phoenix, which is considered one of the toughest maximum-security hellholes ever built and houses killers, rapists and violent thugs.
“Each inmate, regardless of their placement or unit, receives the same amount of food,” said DiPietro, “but being in the same unit as Cosby, we had the privilege of ordering twice as much commissary per week because Cosby doesn’t eat most of the prison food — and he buys everyone on the block something on each order!”
The former Jell-O pitchman stuffs his face with turkey bacon, tuna steak, sausage, six varieties of cheese — and even puffs on Punch Double Corona cigars from Cuba, a source said. The gluttonous convict also gorges on brownies, doughnuts and artery-clogging “monster” honey-glazed buns, according to jailhouse menus and commissary lists obtained by Radar.
“The prison gave us a lecture, informing us that ‘due to the presence of America’s most high-profile inmate,’ we would be granted extra yard time, first dibs on meals, and they even created a system that allowed us to file complaints — without having to wait for the typical three-week period,” said DiPietro.
But phone time is a touchy issue for inmates — it’s claimed some guards demand jailbirds stay away to “give Mr. Cosby his privacy.”
Shockingly, the sex fiend was nicknamed “Mr. Popular” by prison bigwigs in internal emails. They even joked about an incident in January that saw a drone buzz the prison yard, with one official noting the headache will “cause a bunch of work … LOL.”
In another email, one state official claimed Cosby could be released before serving the bare minimum of his three- to ten-year term for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in 2004.
Radar also learned prison staff go the extra mile to keep high-ranking state officials in the loop about their star guest — and thanked a third-party public relations company for scolding a news outlet for reporting corrections officers were “minimally trained” guards.
Though Cosby doesn’t have a prison-issued publicist, staffers employed by the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections waste hours focusing on Cosby-related matters, and even assisted an author who wrote a book about the disgraced comic, internal emails showed.
“The guards should be more focused on the rehabilitation of inmates,” one source blasted. “Instead, it seems all they are interested in is befriending a sicko like Cosby!”
