Camille Cosby stands by Bill Cosby
The wife of embattled comedian Bill Cosby, Camille Cosby, is refusing to testify against him, and is taking legal steps to make sure no one tries to.
A lawyer representing some of the women who accused Cosby of sexual assault is trying to depose Camille, claiming she knew about the incidents and that she supplied him with pills.
“She was not present for any of the events alleged in Plaintiffs’ complaint, and her second hand knowledge of events (if any) could only come from private communications with her husband,” her legal team said in documents filed on Wednesday.
“Further, even if Mrs. Cosby ever procured sedatives for her husband — which she never did, and there is no indication that she ever did — the relevant factual issues in this defamation case revolve around the accusations that Defendant secretly drugged some of the Plaintiffs, not where any drugs supposedly came from,” the papers read.
Bill Cosby has been accused of drugging and/or sexually assaulting over 50 women, but Camille has stuck by him through out the accusations.
“The man I met and fell in love with, and whom I continue to love, is the man you all knew through his work,” she said in a statement last year.
“He is a kind man, a generous man, a funny man, and a wonderful husband, father and friend. He is the man you thought you knew.”
