Bill Cosby’s Lawyer: ‘Janice Dickinson Is A Liar’
Bill Cosby’s lawyer already had to remove one statement denying rape allegations about his client, so let’s how well his response to Janice Dickinson’s accusation that she was raped by Cosby in 1982 holds up. Via NBC 10 Philadelphia:
“The only story she gave 12 years ago in her autobiography as well as her interview with the media was that she refused to sleep with Mr. Cosby and he blew her off,” he said. “You can confirm with Harper Collins that she never claimed Mr. Cosby raped her, that no attorney representing Bill Cosby tried to kill the story (since there was no such story) and no one tried to prevent anything she wanted to say about Bill Cosby in her book.”
I’m not a big city attorney, but let’s see if I can make sense of this: According to Janice Dickinson, Harper Collins caved to pressure from Bill Cosby’s lawyers and wasn’t allowed to include her rape allegations against him in her book. She was, however, allowed to keep in an anecdote about him getting pissed that she wouldn’t consensually fuck him because, at the end of the day, that’s still way better than rape. And now Bill Cosby’s lawyer is basically daring people to ask Harper Collins – who’s noticeably been keeping their head down – what really happened because a huge multi-million dollar publisher is going to just roll right over in the middle of this shitstorm and say, “Yup, we totally made a woman not write about being raped because money. You got us.” On top of that, Bill Cosby still hasn’t sued a single one of these women for defamation of character because then he’d have to face these allegations in court when instead he can just make run-around denials and count on people to reliably go, “Eh, whores lie, and they could’ve just bit him in the dick.” (Zup, Don Lemon?)
UPDATE: And Variety reports NBC just cancelled Bill Cosby’s new show. Seems like that’d be a large financial loss you’d sue a certain model over if you have “documentary proof” she’s lying. But again, not a lawyer.
