R. Kelly's cellmate draws him doing yoga in prison comic book

I believe I can touch my toes. 

R. Kelly’s bunkmate at the Metropolitan Detention Center, who was convicted of threatening to kill elected officials, created a comic book about the two doing yoga together in their cell, court records filed Tuesday show. 

In a bid to see Brendan Hunt, 37, released on time served ahead of his sentencing, his attorneys filed a letter to the court claiming the former New York state court employee has changed his ways and is a bona fide artist who deserves to be free. 

“Putting his artistic talents to work, he created a Prison Comics strip, which has been enjoyed by many, and we offer a few episodes here as Exhibit F. These are comics and intended to be light. But we think they capture something more profound about the humanizing commonality that can be found even in the most dehumanizing conditions,” Hunt’s attorneys wrote in the letter. 

“Mr. Hunt deserves to be understood as a full spectrum human being and not packaged as a villain who is to be feared and loathed.” 

R. Kelly's cellmate penned a comic book depicting the disgraced rapper and his cellmate Brendan Hunt doing yoga together and discussing music.

Hunt’s “Prison Comics” creation depicts him as a “hero” and includes “special guest, R. Kelly,” who is shocked to learn his cellie is not aware he’s an international megastar. 

“I’m the greatest R&B star in human history! How can you not know of R. Kelly?” the singer asks in the comic, enquiring whether he’s heard of hit songs like “Remix to Ignition” or “I Believe I Can Fly.”

“Millions of babies have been conceived to my records,” the comic book Kelly says. 

The comic makes Brendan Hunt the "hero" of the story while R. Kelly is a special guest star.

“Well have you ever heard of the band Megadeath? Or Slayer? Or Dying Fetus?” Hunt asks in response, to which Kelly admits, “I guess I see your point.” 

The comic then shows the two jailbirds bonding while practicing yoga together and includes drawings of the pair in warrior pose and downward dog. 

“I feel very vulnerable right now,” cartoon Kelly says in the strip while in the downward dog pose.

Following their bunk-side workouts, the two cartoon characters become extremely buff and Kelly jokes about how he “can’t wait until the guys in the yard see our gains.” 

“This is gonna be awesome, R. Celly,” Hunt replies to his jailhouse roomie.

Kelly had been remanded to the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn while awaiting trial on federal sex-trafficking charges. He was convicted in September and is awaiting sentencing.
