“After two years and 10 months of fighting for life and truth, a year of freedom at home with my family seems good to me (at least that’s what my wife says,” Bill wrote.
However, the allegations of assault stand. In early December, five women filed lawsuits against Bill Cosby and NBC. Filing in New York, four women say Cosby coerced sexual acts or raped them between the 1980s and 1990s. While a fifth woman said Cosby had raped her in 1969.

At the time of the ruling, Wyatt said Huth “will never receive a day’s pay from Mr. Cosby.” He also claimed that Huth owed her legal team more than $3 million, which Judy’s attorney, Gloria Allred, later denied.

It’s wild that Bill Cosby acted blindly and feebly during his ordeal and now he’s back on tour since coming out. I hope people show up and tease him again.
