Besides a statement late last year in which she says , “He is the man you thought you knew.” , Camille Cosby has been mostly mum about allegations that her husband Bill Cosby sexually assaulted women after drugging them over a period of 5 decades, but sources tell the New York Post that the 71-year-old is standing by her man and doesn’t believe the whole story is being told.
“They are making him out to be such a bad guy, a monster,” a source tells the Post Camille said at a crisis meeting attended by advisers, lawyers and PR specialists at the couple’s home in Shelburne, Mass., on Tuesday night.
Camille has remarked in the past that she’s fully aware of Cosby’s adulterous ways and admits that he’s an unfaithful husband, but not a rapist:
“I created him, I knew what I was getting and we’ll fix this.”
Close confidantes of the couple revealed to The Post that Camille believes the women coming forward about being sexually assaulted by Cosby consented to the drugs and sex. A source said to be employed by the Cosby’s reveals:
“Camille still doesn’t believe that Bill provided drugs and had sex with women without their consent.”
“She’s well aware of his cheating, but she doesn’t believe that her husband is a rapist.”
The source says that Camille expressed that she “stopped being embarrassed long ago” about her husband’s extra-marital affairs, but does believe the media has repeatedly invaded their privacy which she cannot tolerate:
“You have to allow for space to let your partner do what he wants. I have done that and [Bill] has done that and there’s no jealously, no friction.”
The source reports that Camille even talked to Oprah Winfrey in the past about how she would regularly go through an “evaluation period” questioning whether or not the marriage should continue, but would inevitably end up back with Bill.
Sources also say that Camille referred to a few celebs in particular such as Jill Scott “jumping ship” with the latest reports that have Cosby on record admitting to drugging women.
A longtime spiritual adviser for the couple, Rev. Carl Dianda, told The Post his “heart breaks” for her, “She made so many sacrifices for him to have a career.”
Is Camille Cosby doing what any wife would do or is she blinded by love? I mean marriage is supposed to be for better or worse and she is being honest about the fact that Bill hasn’t been the best husband. We will say Camille is a strong woman for dealing with all of the challenges this marriage has brought her way over the years.
