George Michael was left in tears after being taunted
The `Freedom` singer is serving the first part of his eight-week sentence for driving under the influence of drugs and possession of cannabis at London-s tough Pentonville Prison and despite being placed in a wing for vulnerable inmates - including rapists and paedophiles - he was still mocked, being serenaded with twisted versions of his own hits when he arrived at the facility on Tuesday (14.09.10).
A source said: "As soon as he arrived some of the prisoners burst into a rendition of `Freedom`.
"And when he was taken to shower they sang, `Guilty George has got no freedom` to the tune of `Careless Whisper`. He is sulking.
"When the cells were unlocked in the morning he just sat there and refused to come out."
Chris Smith, an inmate who was released yesterday (15.09.10), added: "He was in bits. The guards said he was crying in his cell."
The 47-year-old star was left further dismayed afterbeing told his only outside contact for the first 48 hours following his incarceration was to be a three-minute phone call with his partner Kenny Goss.
One inmate told The Sun newspaper: "When he went to use a payphone in the communal area he was hunched over it - distraught and in tears. He was whispering and very emotional."
Despite his ordeal, inmates claim George is receiving special treatment and has been housed in a luxury cell dubbed `The Ritz`.
One source explained to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It`s the best cell in the whole prison. It has duvets, cushions, even its own digital TV box.
"He`s being treated like a king and has guards swarming all over him.
"The last thing they want is for something to happen to him. Pentonville is really tough and some people can`t cope with being locked up."
George is expected to be moved to an open prison later this week.
