According to a report on Page Six, comedian and television star Bill Cosby purposefully leaked a story about his daughter’s battle with drugs in 1989 in order to take the spotlight off his alleged womanizing.
An unidentified reporter from the National Enquirer recently contacted Cosby about a 25-year-old allegation that he and Sammy Davis Jr. were “swingers.” But instead of providing a comment about the topic at hand, Cosby told the reporter about his daughter’s drug and alcohol abuse, saying, “Deep down inside, she knows we love her."
But this isn’t the first time Cosby has been in the news lately. He repeatedly made headlines last month as multiple women stepped forward with claims of physical and sexual abuse. One of the accusers, supermodel Janice Dickinson, alleged Cosby gave her a pill that knocked her out; when she woke up, Cosby was on top of her.
Cosby’s lawyer, Martin Singer, says the allegations are fabricated. “The new, never-before-heard claims from women who have come forward in the past two weeks with unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40, or even 50 years ago have escalated far past the point of absurdity,” said Singer.
As he has throughout recent events, Cosby refuses to comment on the matters.
