A man said to be Kai Ko's cellmate in the detention centre revealed to the media that the Taiwanese star had preferential treatment in there, due to to his celebrity status.
According to Asian Pop News, the man said in a statement that ai had "celebrity treatment".
That meant that he did not have to wear the convict uniform like the others, did not have to shave his head like everyone -- and was even allowed to smoke.
The alleged cellmate said, "He is a celebrity and he had special privileges. He could smoke everyday and shave his face, but the others were not allowed!"
He also claimed that the officers had warned everyone not to "bully" Kai during his detention.
He said that there were about 20 people in the cell, and 5 or 6 of them shared a plank to sleep at night --but Kai had one all to himself.
Even though they were forbidden to "bully" Kai, his cellmates had reportedly teased him by sheepishly saying, "Kai Ko, I love you".
However, Kai Ko held a press conference upon his release yesterday, and denied the reports.
