Bill Cosby’s wife Camille has broken her silence by fiercely coming in defense of her husband, who is currently being accused of rape and sexual abuse be scores of middle-aged women.
‘A different man has been portrayed in the media over the last two months,’ she said in a statement. ‘It is the portrait of a man I do not know.’
She continued, ‘It is also the portrait painted by individuals and organizations whom many in the media have given a pass.’
Who then is the real Bill Cosby?
‘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.’
‘We all followed the story of the article in the Rolling Stone concerning allegations of rape at the University of Virginia,’ she said. ‘The story was heart-breaking but ultimately appears to be proved to be untrue. Many in the media were quick to link that story to stories about my husband.’
‘None of us will ever want to be in the position of attacking the victim. But the question should be asked — who is the victim?’ she finished.
