LISA BONET BREAKS HER SILENCE ON BILL COSBYMarch 9, 2018
In a new interview, the former The Cosby Show star says reveals that while she didn’t know of his alleged behavior, he always gave off a “sinister” vibe.
“There was no knowledge on my part about his specific actions, but… There was just energy,” the 50-year-old told Net-a-Porter. “And that type of sinister, shadow energy cannot be concealed.”
She also disclosed that had she known what he reportedly did, she would have spoken out.
“If I had anything more to reveal then it would have happened a long time ago. That’s my nature. The truth will set you free.”
Bonet and Cosby have had a contentious relationship after she appeared in a nude sex scene in the 1987 film Angel Heart. He would later fire her from A Different World citing creative differences.
“I don’t need to say, ‘I told you so’,” she said about her former TV dad. “I just leave all that to karma and justice and what will be.”
Despite all the drama, Bonet hasn’t let his actions affect how she thinks about her time on The Cosby Show.
“No, it’s exactly as I remember it,” she said directly.
Cosby’s retrial over accusations that he drugged and molested former Temple University employee Andrea Constand in 2004 is set to being in April.
Over 50 other women have accused the actor of sexual misconduct.
