The racist cellmate of disgraced R&B singer R Kelly has created a comic book detailing the pair doing yoga in jail.
Brendan Hunt, 37, served time with Kelly at the Metropolitan Detention Center as Hunt faced a 10 year prison sentence for threatening to kill Democratic Congress members following the January 6 riots.
In the comic book, Hunt dubbed his cellmate ‘R. Celly’ and drew the pair discussing music and doing yoga together.
Hunt, who shared the cell with Kelly for two weeks in June, filed the drawings with the Brooklyn Federal Court as part of his request to be released for time-served ahead of his November 22 sentencing.

The drawings in Hunt’s ‘Prison Comics’ specifically detail a scenario between him and Kelly during their time together.
It begins with the pair describing their different tastes of music, with Hunt not being aware of who Kelly is or what his songs are.
‘I’m the greatest R&B star in human history! How can you not know of R. Kelly?’ the singer asks in the comic.
Hunt claims that he never heard of Kelly’s music, including popular songs such as ‘Ignition’ and ‘I Believe I Can Fly.’
‘I’m the greatest R&B star in human history! Millions of babies have been conceived to my records!,’ Kelly adds.
‘Well have you ever heard of the band Megadeath? Or Slayer? Or Dying Fetus?’ Hunt then asks Kelly who responds with ‘I guess I see your point.’
Kelly also notices a book that Hunt is holding reading ‘Yoga 101’ and asks what he’s looking at it for.
‘It’s some weird yoga thing that my lawyer sent us…she said you and me should do these exercises together,’ Hunt responds, adding that the pair would ‘look like a couple of idiots’ while doing it.
Hunt and Kelly then get into the ‘Warrior Pose’ with Kelly’s ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ playing in the background.
‘I feel very vulnerable right now,’ Kelly says while they shift into downward dog position.
A few days after their workout, the new ‘workout pals’ have maintained a heavily-muscled figured.
‘Oh, yeah!’, Kelly says. ‘Wait til the guys in the yard see our gains!’
‘This is gonna be awesome, R. ‘Celly!’ the now hunky Hunt replies.
Hunt had also made another comic strip about another inmate named Garcia who worshipped an idol called ‘Orshroom’ that he feeds bananas
The R Kelly comic was not the first that Hunt made as he also detailed a story involving another inmate named Garcia.
The strip is called ‘Our hero discovers the secrets of Santeria!’ and shows Garcia worshipping an idol called ‘Orshroom’ that he feeds bananas.
Hunt’s attorneys filed a motion to the court claiming that he was ‘a different man’ and praised his artistic expression as a form or rehabilitation.
‘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,’ the motion read.
‘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 had been found guilty in April of urging people to ‘kill your Senators’ in video he posted in the aftermath of the Capitol riots.
He had been arrested by the FBI on January 19, the day after Biden was inaugurated.
Hunt had also posted videos making threats against Democratic senators such as Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and Nancy Pelosi.
He was later acquitted of the charges relating to the threats he made in the video.
However, he had also demonstrated racist and anti-Semitic ways of thinking as he remarked immigrants as ‘low IQ mongoloids’ and called NYC ‘Jew York City’ in texts and online posts.
According to the sentencing memo, he had even allegedly blamed the immigrants for President Trump’s loss against Biden in 2020.
‘Trump, we want actual revenge on democrats,’ Hunt wrote in a Facebook post on December 6.
‘Meaning, we want you to hold a public execution of pelosi aoc schumer etc.
‘And if you dont do it, the citizenry will. We’re not voting in another rigged election.
‘Start up the firing squads, mow down these commies, and lets take america back!’
Prosecutors had asked for 51 to 63 months in a sentencing memo for Hunt as they claimed he needed to serve more time.
‘The defendant’s threats to murder Members of Congress are even more serious because he made his ‘Kill Your Senators’ threat video just days after angry supporters of former President Trump violently stormed the Capitol,’ Assistant U.S. Attorney Ian Richardson wrote.

Despite this, Hunt claimed he is a changed man and says he does not mean what he said in those previous posts.
‘Mr. Hunt is a very different man today than the one who posted the ‘Kill Your Senators’ video and took it down a few hours later,’ Hunt’s lawyer Jan Rostal said in court papers.
‘He testified he wants to be a peacemaker, and his digital footprint supports that this is his ideal.’
Kelly had been cellmates with Hunt while he was awaiting trial for sex-trafficking charges,
The singer was convicted in September of sexually abusing young girls, boys and women.
He was found guilty on all nine counts of racketeering and sex-trafficking.
His sentencing is set to take place on May 4 2022.
