I wonder if the people who believe that Michael Jackson was innocent believe Bill Cosby is guilty.

Reading many of the comments at the end of the article, many people don't believe her. Meanwhile, there have many allegations against him through the years, and one lawsuit named 13 victims in court documents before being settled out of court. I don't think her saying she never had the career she was meant to have speaks to her being untruthful. It speaks to the power of Cosby over his victims.

Yeah, I agree. He has been accused by many women, not just one or two or even three. Their stories share numerous similarities. I think that all involve being drugged and then raped. He settled at least one case out of court. I think that there is probably truth to some of these stories.

At first I thought the accusations were from a bitter wannabe. But as more comes out its getting uglier.

Still many people get into (often unhealthy) celebrity relationships with hopes of gaining fame and exposure.

Wasn't Anne Heche conveniently a lesbian for a while, when she was an unknown?

Sad to say, but it appears Bill Cosby is a lech. And not only is he a lech, but a serial rapist. And not only is he a serial rapist, but he's the "slip 'em a Micky Finn" type. And not only is he a lech, serial rapist, Mickey Finn slipper, but also an a adulterer. And not only a lech, serial rapist, Mickey Finn slipper, adulterer, but also a hypocrite.

Yeah, this isn't going to turn out well for Bill.


I have a feeling his future is going to include a lot of Jello shots.

if true, well...hmmmm....shows celebrities are only human...and if true, well I would feel a bit cheated, because he built his career on being a "decent, family man"...meh, shows he's only human (if true of course).

He has been a very controversial out spoken person I the black community especially as of late. So I think there is motive to come forward true or not. I give him same doubt as any she says or he says.

^^^That's the ludicrous theory Rush Limbaugh (of all people) put out/spread out there.

As a former Cosby fan, I have to say what made me suspicious of the man is the settling out of court for mega bucks.

Yeah, that doesn't make sense for an innocent to do.

Considering the way in which Bill has always presented himself, an innocent Coz would fight tooth and nail to prove his innocence. And he would constantly proclaim it loudly and publicly until his dying day. He would never settle and accept an untrue attack on his character and faithfulness to Camille. It just doesn't jive. Something is up. And I think it's Bill's time of being a hero, role model, and fake.

BTW, it pains me to say it!

What can come of this? I don't think at this point that it can be swept under the rug, like in the past. He's having appearances cancelled, so I assume he's promoting something. It was sickening to me to see tv hosts fawning all over him like he's some kind of God, and his smug, 'you just don't get it' superior attitude. This isn't about bad publicity, it's about crimes he's accused of committing. If he just disappears from the public eye, is that the end of it? It shouldn't be.
