Actress Raven Symone is slamming a disturbing rumor that she was molested by Bill Cosby during her days as a child star on The Cosby Show. This week, former supermodel Janice Dickinson accused the legendary comedian, now 77, of sexually assaulting her back in 1982. Dickinson joins a group of women making similar allegations against Cosby.
On Wednesday, a gossip website spread a rumor that Symone had filed charges against aging actor, accusing him of molesting her as well.
“I was NOT taking advantage of by Mr. Cosby when I was on the Cosby Show!” the Disney star wrote. “I was practically a baby on that show and this is truly a disgusting rumor that I want no part of! Everyone on that show treated me with nothing but kindness. Now keep me out of this!”
“Keep me outta this!” she later tweeted.
Cosby’s lawyer, Marty Singer, issued this statement on Tuesday addressing Janice’s accusations:
“Janice Dickinson’s story accusing Bill Cosby of rape is a lie. There is a glaring contradiction between what she is claiming now for the first time and what she wrote in her own book and what she told the media back in 2002. Ms. Dickinson did an interview with the New York Observer in September 2002 entitled ‘Interview With a Vamp’ completely contradicting her new story about Mr. Cosby. That interview a dozen years ago said “she didn’t want to go to bed with him and he blew her off.” Her publisher Harper Collins can confirm that no attorney representing Mr. Cosby tried to kill the alleged rape story (since there was no such story) or tried to prevent her from saying whatever she wanted about Bill Cosby in her book. The only story she gave 12 years ago to the media and in her autobiography was that she refused to sleep with Mr. Cosby and he blew her off. 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.”
Cosby’s camp is adamant that the rape allegations by multiple women are false.
The Nerve! Rae Carruth’s Shocking Request Over Son He Tried To Kill Has Twitter Up In Arms
Rae Carruth has Twitter up in arms over his asinine request to gain custody of his 18-year-old son he tried to kill. Let’s first refresh your memory.
The former Carolina Panthers wide receiver was sentenced to 18 to 24 years behind bars in North Carolina for conspiracy to murder his pregnant girlfriend, Cherica Adams.
In 2001, Carruth was found guilty of hiring Van Brett Watkins and Michael Kennedy to murder Adams two years prior. Watkins shot Adams multiple times and Kennedy was responsible for the getaway car.
Cherica, who was seven months pregnant, died one month after the shooting and her son survived. Unfortunately, due to complications, Chancellor Lee Adams was born prematurely and has sense battled cerebral palsy.
Now, almost 20 years following the egregious murder, Carruth is not only begging for forgiveness from the mother of Cherica, but he is also requesting full custody of Chancellor.
The former athlete wrote a 15-page letter to Saundra Adams apologizing for the murder of her daughter and accepted responsibility for planning out the attacks.
“I should be raising my son. His mother should be raising her son,” Carruth said during an interview with WBTV. “Ms. Adams should not be doing this and I want that responsibility back.”
He explained, “I feel like he might not ever have his mother in his life but he could still have me and I could still make a difference and I don’t think that’s anyone’s responsibility when I’m still here.”
In response to the lengthy letter, Adams told The Observer earlier this week that while she has forgiven Rae, she will not give up custody of her grandson, whom she has raised. “I’ve forgiven Rae already, but to have any type of relationship with him, there does have to be some repentance,” Adams said. “And I think this opens the door. But I can say definitively he’s not ever going to have custody of Chancellor.”
She added, “Chancellor will be raised either by me or, after I’m gone, by someone else who loves him and who knows him. He will never be raised by a stranger — someone he doesn’t know and who tried to kill him.”
Standing behind Saundra decision to sustain custody is folks on social media, who are disgusted by Rae’s request.
Rae is set to be released from Sampson Correctional Institution in Clinton, North Carolina, on October 22.
