Despite the 36 women who have accused Bill Cosby of sexually assaulting them, his wife, Camille Cosby, still believes that her husband is not a rapist.
In a report that was featured in the New York Post last Sunday, Camille claimed that the women knew about the drugs and agreed to have sex with her husband.
A person close to the Cosby’s disclosed to the Post that Camille, who has been married to Bill since 1965, knew that her husband was cheating on her.
Nevertheless, the insider further revealed that the 71-year-old Mrs. Cosby assumed that all the allegations thrown against her husband were actually personal offenses against her and the women were simply “taking advantage” of Bill’s fame.
Apparently, Camille also managed her husband’s career.
Thus, the accusers’ lawyer, attorney Gloria Allred, called for an assembly last Monday to defend her clients, Beth Ferrier and Rebecca Lynn Neal.
Claiming that Ferrier and Neal were firm on their stand that they didn’t know about the drugs, Allred asked Mrs. Cosby to meet Ferrier and Neal personally so that she can listen to their accusations firsthand.
During the conference, Neal accused The Cosby Show star of drugging and raping her after they met in a health club in Las Vegas where she worked.
Allred also spoke for Ferrier, who alleged that Bill Cosby put drugs in her coffee while she visited him in Denver.
Ferrier claims that the star might have raped her after drugging her, Allred added.
The legal controversy which now plagues Mr. Cosby started last week when parts of a document revealing statements that he made under oath in 2005 was made public.
In 2005, a woman named Andrea Constand filed a court case against the TV star but the case was settled for an undisclosed amount.
The passages from the 2005 deposition revealed that Bill indeed acquired Quaaludes to give to women he wanted to have sex with.
After the excerpts were made public, Constand “filed a motion” stating that Bill’s legal team did not follow the privacy arrangement of the resolution and has requested for the public release of the whole deposition.
Ferrier and Neal, who served as anonymous witnesses to the 2005 case, backed up Constand’s request, as they needed the whole document in order for them to be able to defend themselves, Allred reasoned.
