Raven-Symoné Says ‘I Haven’t Touched My Cosby Money’
Raven-Symoné dropped a money bomb via Instagram, with the child-actress turned Hollywood boss telling fans she has yet to spend any money from her childhood work on The Cosby Show.
Raven was interviewed on Instagram live by internet personality, Jerome Trammel. A clip from the interview was posted to The Shade Room Instagram account on Wednesday and has since gone viral. During the chat, the influencer asked Raven very directly about her “Cosby money.”
“You hinted that you still have your Cosby money. So, it is true that you haven’t touched your Cosby money, or you mean like residuals, as of lately?”
To which the bossed-up actress plainly replied, “I haven’t touched my Cosby money.”
Raven joined the cast of The Cosby Show at the age of three, staying on the show for three seasons. It has been 28 years since she starred as the adorably sassy Olivia Kendall on the popular family sitcom. Since then, the actress has gone on to build a successful career in film and television.
The 34-year-old entertainer has starred in movies such as Dr. Dolittle and Dr. Dolittle 2, along with an extensive list of television series. Most notably, Raven starred on Disney Channel’s That’s So Raven and in The Cheetah Girls franchise. The actress also has a recurring role on ABC’s Black-ish, where she plays the role of Dre’s sister, Rhonda Johnson. Raven held down a coveted position as a host on the daytime talk show, The View. In 2016, Raven announced that she was leaving The View to return to Disney Channel. She currently executive produces and stars in the That’s So Raven spinoff, Raven’s Home.
Fans have been following Raven’s career for decades, and when she dropped this financial flex via Instagram Live, they quickly took the social media to clap for their queen.
“She is the Beyoncé of Disney,” one fan commented.
“She is an icon for us,” another fan posted.
The multi-faceted entertainer is also musically inclined. Raven had a popular hit single very early in her career with, “That’s What Little Girls Are Made Of” in 1993. She has released four studio albums throughout the years: Here’s to New Dreams (1993), This Is My Time (2004), From Then Until (2006), and Raven-Symoné (2008). She is currently promoting her new EP, INFRASOUNDS, which was released on April 10 of this year.
As Raven continues to add to her resume and expand her brand, it doesn’t look like she will need to touch that “Cosby money” anytime soon.
