Like most of the world, Hollywood celebrities are just as shocked to learn about the new sex abuse allegations of TV’s favorite dad, Bill Cosby.
While on the red carpet for Ebony magazine’s Power 100 Gala, HipHollywood talked with a few power stars who shared their reaction to the accusations that have seemingly tarnished Cosby’s reputation. “There are serious allegations and troubling allegations, but they are allegations and we really don’t know what happened,” TD Jakes explained.
The Bishop added, “What we do know is that Bill Cosby has been a trailblazer for our community, he’s done a lot of awesome things, I would hope they’re not true.”
Earlier this week, world renowned model Janice Dickinson revealed to Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier that Cosby drugged and raped her 1982. Frazier, who was being honored at the Power 100 Gala, told HipHollywood exclusively that Janice, who was just one of several women to come forward, was extremely emotional during their interview. “What you won’t see is that Janice had a full breakdown when she walked off the stage. A full breakdown. She was devastated,” the host told us. “I think these women, whose stories are all very similar, it’s sad and I hope that they can have some kind of closure and I hope that Mr. Cosby comes out and addresses these issues.”
Bill’s lawyer sent HipHollywood a statement on Wednesday slamming Dickinson’s accusations.
“Documentary proof and Ms. Dickinson’s own words show that her new story about something she now claims happened back in 1982 is a fabricated lie,” the statement read.
Since the resurfacing of the allegations that occurred over a decade ago, Cosby has been dropped from NBC and TV Land.
It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
