SBF Jail Photo Leaks: Former Inmate Says Crypto Convict ‘More Gangster’ Than 6ix9ine

Photos have emerged of disgraced former crypto billionaire Sam Bankman-Fried, who has been locked up at New York’s Metropolitan Detention Center while he awaits sentencing following his conviction for defrauding clients of the now-bankrupt FTX cryptocurrency exchange.

SBF, 31, can be seen in the newly surfaced photo obtained by crypto crime reporter Tiffany Fong, who also interviewed an inmate known as G Lock (pictured beside SBF):

According to Fong, the photo was taken on Dec. 17, 2023.

In an interview with Fong, G Lock described SBF as being “weird as shit” and more “scruffy than a motherfucker,” though he was a “good guy.”

Sam had a belly, he was eating good. [Now] he’s skinny like a toothpick,” Mr. Lock continued. “He’s not getting a shower, he’s not doing anything. He didn’t snitch on nobody, Sam is a gangster.

“Sam is more gangster than Tekashi69, Sam Bankman stood on all ten toes. Tekashi ratted,” he said.


“He’s obviously lost some weight, and I’ve heard he’s not showering very much,” said Fong. “He’s not as clean-shaven as he used to be, but he’s obviously going through a lot right now.”

According to Fong, SBF’s fellow inmates made fun of his relationship with former Alameda Research executive Caroline Ellison, who pleaded guilty to two counts of wire fraud, two counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, conspiracy to commit commodities fraud, conspiracy to commit securities fraud, and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
