We’re all aware that an arrest warrant for Bill Cosby was issued last week for the alleged rape of Andrea Constand who claims that the comedian drugged and raped her back in 2004. He was charged with sexual assault, making it the first time criminal charges have been filed against the 78-year old comedian (despite the more than 50 allegations of some sort of sexual misconduct made against him.)
Well now word is that his wife Camille seems to have had enough of the spectacle. According to Complex, she was quoted saying, “My husband doesn’t deserve jail, but he does deserve every bit of the hell he’s going through now even though he is still pretending that this hell doesn’t exist.” A source alleges that Camille knew about her husband’s infidelities over the years, but pretty much told him to keep it on the down-low. “She has been thoroughly humiliated and believe me, her anger isn’t directed at the women,” the source said. “Bill has humiliated her, and the affairs he’s had have gotten out of hand and this criminal charge is him reaping what he’s sown.”
It looks like Camille did know that Cosby was unfaithful to a degree, but this could be the reason why she requested not to testify against him before it was court-ordered last week. She could take the stand as soon as Jan. 6th when the depositions of the seven accusers in Massachusetts are are scheduled to begin. Cosby is being sued by the seven women for defamation in response to his claims that they lied when they revealed allegations of Cosby raping them.
Unfortunately for Cosby, the unlucky train doesn’t stop there! His defense attorney, Monica Pressley, has revealed that the actor is also suffering from an eye condition called Keratoconus, “a thinning condition of the cornea that causes eyes to budge.” If the degenerative eye condition gets worse it is reported that Bill may need a cornea transplant later down the road.
“He’s a 78-year-old blind man who they’ve chosen to charge, that’s not a defense to a charge, that’s just a fact,” Pressley told CBS. One thing is for sure Bill is definitely going through it! Lets chat below!
