Bill Cosby is currently battling it out in court in an attempt to clear his name and keep his freedom. The TV star and legendary comedian, has been in the news after several women came forward accusing Cosby of sexual assault. The accusations for many have been troubling to hear since he played one of America’s favorite TV dads for years.
Now in a new interview with Net-A-Porter, Cosby’s TV daughter Lisa Bonet has lightly commented on the current situation surrounding Cosby. Bonet’s response would indicate that she’s didn’t feel the best about her TV dad for years.
Have the revelations about Bill Cosby’s alleged sexual misconduct tainted her memory of those years? She looks evenly at me. “No, it’s exactly as I remember it,” she says. But did you have a sense that anything was happening? “There was no knowledge on my part about his specific actions, but… There was just energy. And that type of sinister, shadow energy cannot be concealed.” You sensed a darkness? “Always. And 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.” At the time, Bonet was branded a rebel who tested the patience of the most popular sitcom dad in the country. She showed up late on set and posed topless in Interview magazine, contrary to his wishes. Cosby famously opposed her role in Angel Heart, in which she performed a nude sex scene with Mickey Rourke. “I don’t need to say, ‘I told you so’,” she says about Cosby’s current situation. “I just leave all that to karma and justice and what will be.”
For those who can remember, Bonet and Cosby were publicly at odds as she began to mature in her career. Cosby has yet to respond to Bonet’s newest comments.
