George Michael Denies Special Treatment in Jail
Former Wham! singer George Michael has insisted he's receiving "no special treatment of any kind" in jail, where he's currently serving an eight-week sentence.
George released a statement denying stories that he'd been bullied and in tears, reassuring family, friends and fans that he was being "treated with kindness", reports the UK's Daily Telegraph newspaper.
The 47-year-old was jailed last month after he crashed his Range Rover into a London photography shop called Snappy Snaps while high on cannabis in July. It is likely that he'll be released in two weeks.
"Much as I would prefer to rise above the usual rubbish that I'm reading day after day about my time here in prison, I think it's only fair to my fans, family and friends to respond in some way even though I will be home soon," said George.

"So please believe me when I tell you that in the last three weeks, there have been no tears, no anxiety, no bullying — in fact, not so much as a sleepless night for me.”
The singer said he was spending most of his time behind bars reading “thousands of letters and postcards of incredible support from people around the world”.

He insisted that he was treated like a normal prisoner by fellow inmates and prison staff “unless, of course, some of the guys here are letting me win at the pool table”.
The statement was signed off "With love, as always, George Michael."
