R. Kelly’s Brooklyn cellmate has created a comic book of their life behind bars together that has gone viral.
According to The Daily News, Brendan Hunt, 37, who is convicted of threatening to kill government officials, has submitted his drawings of Kelly and himself to the Brooklyn Federal Court as part of his formal request to have his sentence be time served.
The comic titled Prison Comics depicts Hunt and Kelly meeting in the jail cell to doing yoga, listening to music, working out and more.
“I’m the greatest R&B star in human history! How can you not know of R. Kelly?” the disgraced singer asks Hunt in the first set of comic slides after Hunt shares that he hasn’t heard any of the artist’s most popular hits.
The interactions in the comic are somewhat based on their real-life relationship. Hunt’s lawyers shared with The Daily News that the two have “found a lot of common ground as musicians and artists,” while they were locked up together for two weeks at the Metropolitan Detention Center.
Kelly was found guilty of kidnapping, sexual exploitation of a child, and racketeering in September. In April, Hunt was sent to prison after he created a video following the Jan. 6. Capitol riots and demanded rioters to return to Washington to kill their senators.
