Bill Cosby and his team have launched an attack on every woman who has accused him of sexual assault. Cosby is now arming himself with a team of investigators whose sole purpose is to dig up dirt on his accusers.
According to the New York Post, instead of speaking out against these allegations, Cosby and his lawyer Martin Singer are now trying to dig up anything negative in any accuser’s past.
So far more than two dozen women have accused the comedian of drugging them, with the most recent allegations coming from former supermodel Beverly Johnson.
“If you’re going to say to the world that I did this to you, then the world needs to know, ‘What kind of person are you? Who is this person that’s saying it?’ ” Cosby said during a meeting with his public relations team, according to an insider who was present.
The source went on to say that Cosby even refuted Johnson’s allegations during the meeting by asking why the alleged drugging was never reported to the police. He also wondered why Johnson didn’t tell anyone afterward.
Apparently the investigation into Johnson dug up information about her personal life.
“They were able to find out information about Beverly Johnson’s boyfriend, who said she only had good things to say about Cosby. We found out that Beverly never told her live-in lover of several years what she’s now telling the media, and we found that to be strange,” the source noted.
Digging up dirt isn’t anything new for Cosby and his team of high-priced attorneys. A recent New York Times article also points out that when his extramarital affair became public, which resulted in a young woman’s accusation that he was her father, Cosby’s attorneys went into full crisis mode. Autumn Jackson attempted to extort Cosby and tried to sell her story to the tabloids, but her plan came crashing down when Cosby’s attorney set up a sting operation that included a planted bug.
During these most recent sexual assault allegations, Singer has already fired back at several media outlets, including BuzzFeed, and has threatened to sue after Janice Dickinson, another former model, claimed that Cosby drugged her, too.
When Singer was asked about the use of investigators, he didn’t confirm or deny it. “You [the media] don’t need private investigators to find out information about the accusers. A simple Google search will obtain the information,” Singer said.
