More than 20 women have come forward and accused Bill Cosby of raping and drugging them, or attempting sexual assault.
The most recent accusation came from supermodel Beverly Johnson who gave a detailed account about how the comedian allegedly drugged her, noted CBS News.
Yesterday, Cosby's wife Camille released a statement defending her husband.
According to US Magazine, Camille said, "I met my husband, Bill Cosby, in 1963, and we were married in 1964. The man I met, and fell in love with, and whom I continue to love, is the man you all knew through his work. 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."
However, Cosby admitted to cheating on Camille in the past, noted People. According to the Daily Mail, in 2006, Cosby settled with one of his accusers, Andrea Constand, who sued him for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting her.
Cosby's daughter Evin recently lashed out at her father's accusers on Facebook.
Mediaite.com reports that Evin wrote, "Rape is a serious allegation and it is suppose to be taken VERY seriously but so is Falsely accusing someone. When someone rapes a person they go to prison. THAT should also happen to the person that has wrongfully accused an innocent victim.They are not ONLY destroying innocent people’s life they are ALSO making it hard for the MEN and Women to find justice when they have been raped."
Evin also told Access Hollywood, “He is the FATHER you thought you knew. The Cosby Show was my today’s tv reality show. Thank you. That’s all I would like to say :).”
However, Cosby's other daughter Erinn was reportedly estranged from her father during much of the time that "The Cosby Show" aired, noted The Washington Post.
“She can’t come here," Cosby reportedly told The Los Angeles Times. "She’s not a person you can trust.”
A former NBC employee claimed earlier this year that Cosby gave him thousands of dollars to pay off women whom the comedian allegedly had sex with in his dressing room during some of the years of "The Cosby Show."
