This comes one day after Wyatt told NBC 10 that Cosby was having an "amazing experience" in prison, where he exercises daily at 3:30am, has cut bread and coffee from his diet and rises his food with water to lower his sodium intake.

Other than Cosby's attorneys, Wyatt is the only person to visit him while in prison; Wyatt visits Cosby almost every other week.

"Yeah, he used the term awesome experience", Cosby's spokesperson Andrew Wyatt said.

Bill Cosby does not seem to have a good grasp of why he's behind bars having recently likened himself to a "political prisoner" among the likes of Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and even Martin Luther King Jr.

And Wyatt had some updates on what that experience is like for the 81-year-old, who is four months into a 3- to 10-year sentence for sexual assault.

Cosby is now behind bars at Pennsylvania prison, after being found guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, in 2004. The sexual predator was known as "America's Dad" after starring as the family head in hit US TV series The Cosby Show.

Wyatt added that Cosby "hasn't drank any coffee since he's been in there".

Much of that interview was devoted to what Wyatt and Cosby's publicist Ebonee Benson see as an unjust arrest and conviction that would have never occurred were Cosby not black.

He believes it was the political aspirations of a district attorney and a judge that landed him in prison, according to the statement. The fate of Bill Cosby lies in the hands of a United States jury as they deliberate on whether or not the disgraced entertainer sexually assaulted a former university employee more than 13 years ago.

Wyatt said he visits Cosby every other week - and the star's attorneys visit as well.

Instead, Cosby converses with Camille Cosby, 74, three times a day, for about three minutes each over the phone.

His wife Camille has not visited him so far. "He does not want her to visit him".

Wyatt told CNN last week that Cosby is living largely separated from other inmates, except that he has helpers who guide him around because of his vision problems.

Wyatt did not explain how Cosby did that however, since he was removed from the general population at that time.
