Bill Cosby fought hard to avoid spending time behind bars - but he is reportedly having an "amazing experience" in prison.

Bill Cosby's close friend and employee Andrew Wyatt told WCAU-TV said that the legendary comic is having an “amazing” time behind bars. Cosby has not allowed any of his friends or family to visit him in prison. He has lost weight and cut down on his salt and even quit 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.

“Despite the circumstances, he said, ‘This is an amazing experience,'” Wyatt told them.

“Mr. Cosby had prepared himself… He’s mentally strong. He’s just a strong man.

Cosby is serving up to 10 years at SCI-Phoenix outside Philadelphia for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004. Dozens of other women have accused Cosby of similar crimes.
