Beverly Johnson’s Ex-Boyfriend Sues CNN For $19 Million Due To Defamation

From TMZ

An ex-boyfriend of Bill Cosby accuser Beverly Johnson is suing CNN for allegedly defaming him by talking crap about him to TMZ.

Johnson was contacted by CNN for a special that focused on her accusations. TMZ broke the story … Cosby’s lawyer urged the network to interview Mark Burk because he lived with Johnson for 4 years, and would say she only had praise for the comedian and never mentioned drugging allegations.

We contacted CNN before the show aired, and ended up with a letter the network sent to Cosby’s lawyer saying Burk was a criminal with an ax to grind and lived with Johnson long after she was allegedly drugged. As a result they said he was not included in the special.
