Bill Cosby is having what one may call a challenging time behind bars. According to Radar Online, the comedian believes he is "possessed." A taped phone conversation obtained by the outlet has Cosby, 81, believing his late mother is talking to him in a spiritual way.

The phone conversation from prison that the new outlet obtained has Cosby saying, “What I’m about to tell you is not something that I think is something in the cosmos, or spiritual or something... For the first time ever in my life, I was sitting and I was relaxed.”

“I am unsighted,” Cosby, who is legally blind, continued in the phone conversation, “So I took my hand and I was about to pick something up and my index finger went across – and I’m telling you the truth, this is not a joke and I’m very proud to tell you this at this time.

When it went across, there was a throbbing and that I think we’ve all had them in the muscle, some muscle will go ‘TICK TICK’ something like that. ‘TICK TICK.’ I put my finger back there to it – now, this is all subjective, I’m saying to myself my mother, who is dead. Not that she was contacting me, my mother calling me or trying to reach me,” he added.

Cosby was convicted of aggravated indecent assault against Andrea Constand in April. He is serving three to 10 years in prison and also had to register as a sexually violent predator.

Cosby is trying to appeal his sentence while spending time behind bars advising his fellow inmates on how to eat healthily, Radar Online reported. Cosby’s attorney told the news outlet that the comedian is concerned “with the high obesity rate, not just with the residents, but the officers because they’re having to survive off of the prison food, too.”
