Bill Cosby Wants Settlement Money Back from Andrea Constand
Bill Cosby has taken a big fall from the pedestal he was once on when he was considered America’s favorite dad. With women crawling out of the woodwork claiming the comedian drugged and raped them, putting the number at close to 50, he is fighting back in the only way he can, by getting back the settlement he paid to Andrea Constand to keep her quiet after she accused him of rape.
Until recently there was no definitive proof that Cosby had given any women drugs allowing him to claim the women were fame whores looking for a payout. That was until the Associated Press convinced a judge to release depositions in which Cosby admitted giving quaaludes to women he wanted to have sex with.
Cosby also admitted to other predatory behaviors such as offering sympathy and support to women as a way to get them into bed. He also acknowledged giving payoffs disguised as education funds in hopes of hiding the payoffs from his wife Camille.
Ultimately it was his famous Pound Cake speech that did him in. Cosby put himself in the morally superior category as he traveled America lecturing black women about their parenting and choices in fathers for their children. Somehow he managed to keep a straight face through those lectures despite supporting a child that was the result of one of his extra-marital affairs. While a DNA test never confirmed that Cosby was the father, is there anyone who believes he was supporting that girl out of the goodness of his heart?
Andrea Constand kept her end of the deal. She kept quiet after the settlement despite having several women willing to back up her claims with similar claims. Despite there being many stories about Cosby, no mainstream media outlet picked up on the case, and shockingly, even the tabloids bowed out with the National Enquirer squashing a story after making a deal with Cosby. It was after Hannibal Buress called Cosby a rapist during a stand-up routine that the story went viral with the help of social media.
It became a story that wouldn’t stop. Everyday there was another women coming forward with a story eerily similar to the one Andrea Constand told. Models Beverly Johnson and Janice Dickinson were some of the more famous faces to accuse Cosby of drugging and raping them.
Now that the story is out, Andrea Constand wants her entire court case made public. The former Cosby Show star is fighting back claiming they had a deal. If she gets her way and gets the documents released, he wants all, or at least some, of his money back. In those depositions he admitted to giving her drugs, benadryl, not quaaludes. He also reportedly told her to tell her mother she had an orgasm in hopes of convincing her mother that it was consensual sex and not rape. Can it get any lower than suing her for money because close to 50 other women have kept the case in the news?
