Bill Cosby Drops Defamation Lawsuit Against Accuser Beverly Johnson — For Now, Anyway

Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersVanity FairViolenceBill Cosby

Bill Cosby and Beverly Johnson

Bill Cosby's defense has decided to drop the defamation lawsuit against Beverly Johnson — for the time being, anyway.

In case you need a refresher, Johnson opened up in a Vanity Fair piece about how Bill allegedly spiked her cappuccino during an audition at his home for The Cosby Show. As a result, the scandalized star filed a lawsuit saying the former model is making false accusations in an attempt to become relevant again.

Ouch.

Now, Cosby's lawyers have reportedly asked for a dismissal of the defamation case while their camp focuses full attention on his ongoing criminal case regarding another accuser Andrea Constand.

The attorney says Johnson's case will be refiled after the criminal case is over and before the statute of limitations expires.

Bill Cosby Reportedly Claiming He's 'Legally Blind' In New Defense In Sex Scandal Case!

Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersHealthBill CosbyControversy

We're pretty sure his current vision has nothing to do with his alleged actions from DECADES ago.

Wait… what?! This is very, um, eye-opening.

On Monday, a report came out that Bill Cosby is using his current health issues to defend himself in his recent lawsuits.

The scandalized star is supposedly using his eye conditions to claim that Beverly Johnson fabricated her story claiming she was drugged by the comedian.

According to court docs the Cosby Show alum filed in his defamation lawsuit against the 63-year-old, he is "legally and functionally blind" after suffering from glaucoma and keratoconus, a condition that changes the shape of his corneas. The disorder is known to distort vision.

A source validated the 78-year-old's vision problems, saying:

"Bill doesn't want to make an issue of his eye condition, but it's a real concern to his family and friends. I think his pals and family are greatly alarmed at his bug-eyed appearance."

Honestly we're a little confused because Beverly's story allegedly took place decades ago, and we don't see how the current state of the celeb's vision has anything to do with what she claims he did that long ago.

However, the report says Bill is using his ailing eyesight to discredit the actress' statement that he looked shocked to see her at the airport this year.

The legal papers said:

Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersBill CosbyControversy

Bill is suing another accuser.

Bill Cosby has recently turned the tables on some of his accusers and decided to sue them for defamation.

Now, he's adding another name to his list of legal targets.

The scandalized star has filed a lawsuit against Beverly Johnson regarding her claims that she was drugged by the actor.

For those of you who don't remember, the 63-year-old opened up to Vanity Fair last year, claiming the Cosby Show lead had invited her over for dinner and spiked her cappuccino during an audition at his home for a part on his popular program.

Since then, the actress shared her story on national television and talk shows. But Bill says in legal docs that she is making false accusations in an attempt to become relevant again.

In the court papers, the 78-year-old says he had never dined alone with Beverly, like she had alleged. He wrote that the only time he and his accuser shared a meal was when they were also with his wife.

Filed under: DrugsSad SadScary!Bill CosbyControversy

Beverly is the first accuser to offer up her forgiveness.

A lot of accusers have spoken out about Bill Cosby, but Beverly Johnson is the first to forgive him.

The former model had opened up last year about a scary incident she had with the Cosby Show star in the '80s. She claimed that he drugged her during an audition and dragged her down the stairs by her arm after she realized what was happening and started swearing at him.

While she explains she was never attacked sexually, the entire experience was still terribly traumatic. Ever since the actor's alleged victims have begun to come forward, dozens of women have bravely faced the press to share their stories.

But now, Beverly is offering up her forgiveness.

During an interview with Good Morning America on Wednesday, she was asked what she would say to Bill at this point in time. She responded:

Supermodel Beverly Johnson Reacts To The Disturbing Bill Cosby Court Docs — 'I Was Numb'

Filed under: Icky Icky PooBill Cosby

Its been a crazy past few days for Beverly Johnson.

On Wednesday, the supermodel reacted to recently released court docs that revealed Bill Cosby's history of using quaaludes to initiate sex with unsuspecting women.

While Johnson believes she was never sexually assaulted by Cosby, she firmly believes that she was in fact drugged by the comedian in 1986.

Obviously the ordeal was trying and very disturbing for the model.

Now that the truth has finally come out, Johnson is sharing her thoughts. The 52-year-old explained:

"I had a number of reactions. I was numb. … I didn't realize that I was going to get this onslaught of people wanting to interview me again and so naturally, you know, you want to get underneath the covers and put the covers over your head — but you can't do that and I won't do that. … I want my voice to be heard. … I'm telling my truth."

We can understand what BJ is getting at — while the vindication must feel nice, it also must be difficult to relive the experience in the public eye!
