Robert Durst's disgusting hospital jail cell conditions are being exclusively revealed by RadarOnline.com.

The millionaire real estate heir, 76, is awaiting trial, accused of the execution-style murder of his best friend Susan Berman.

On March 14, 2015, Durst was arrested in New Orleans on a first-degree murder warrant signed by a Los Angeles judge regarding the Berman killing. On November 4, 2016, he was transferred to California and soon after was arraigned in L.A. on first-degree murder charges.

Durst pleaded not guilty.

Since then, Durst has been hospitalized in jail after a slew of illnesses.

Radar's exclusive photos show his urine-stained hospital bed, a life-saving breathing machine, narrow window, and personal items behind bars at Los Angeles' Twin Towers Correctional Facility.

Durst will go on trial for shooting his college pal and closest confidant, journalist Berman, 55, in her Benedict Canyon, California home in December 2000.

Berman had reportedly told friends that she believed Durst had killed his first wife, Kathleen, 29, who's been missing since 1982.

In 2003, Durst was convicted of dismembering Morris Black, his elderly Texas neighbor, but acquitted of his murder.

During the sensational trial, it was disclosed that Durst had disguised himself as a woman to avoid being recognized by cops wanting to question him about his wife.

Durst was jailed again in 2015, after he was caught in HBO's true-crime documentary series The Jinx saying, "What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course!"

Now the scion of a New York real estate family lives in filthy conditions, but is also surrounded by classic books, magazines, and an ad for a deli!

Durst is set to go on trial for Berman's murder in September.
