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.

Shuping, now 30, says that she was so obsessed with becoming blind at age 21, that she enlisted the help of a psychologist to pour drain cleaner in her eyes and waited to seek medical attention, so that the process could take place.

And believe it or not, Shuping isn't the only person with this condition!

That Teen Who Defended A Blind Classmate From Being Beaten By A Bully? His High School Just Suspended Him!

Filed under: Busted!TeensViolenceBullyingViral: KidsViral: NewsControversy

no title

UPDATE 6:34 PM EST: Contrary to initial reports, the teen who punched the first attacker did not receive any kind of punishment for stepping in and defending his classmate. Additionally, the student voluntarily left the football team at the end of the 2014-2015 school year, and was never even on this semester's roster.

————————–

You may have seen the viral video already.

When a student at Huntington Beach High School in southern California began punching another student — who was blind — a third student came to the rescue and delivered an incredible example of schoolyard justice!

It all started when a bully ran up to the blind student and started harassing and punching him — leaving the blind child virtually unable to defend himself from the unprovoked attack.

Then, seemingly out of nowhere, another kid swooped in with a knockout punch — right to the side of the bully's head!

Check out the viral video of the incident, complete with bleeped-out cursing and more (below):

The 14-year-old is no stranger to performing the anthem in front of people. He's apparently been at Fenway Park twice before, as well as performances at NASCAR races and elsewhere, so this was a breeze for him — but that didn't make it any less awesome!!

This Dog Jumped In Front Of A Bus To Protect His Blind Owner! Deets HERE!

Filed under: InspirationPetsDogGolden RetrieverViral: Animals

A guide dog's protective instincts kicked in when his owner was in danger!

This dog brought new meaning to "man's best friend" when he saved his blind owner.

Audrey Stone was crossing the street with her guide dog, Figo, in Brewster, New York. But, when a school bus was headed straight for them, the golden retriever's hero instincts kicked in.

The service dog threw himself in front of the mini-bus to protect his owner.

[ Related: Dog Tragically Dies At Petco ]

Wow!

The bus still hit them both, but she and her pup are currently recovering.

Figo is in a splint after his leg was reportedly cut down to the bone, but he is "on the mend and doing extremely well," according to an employee at Middlebranch Veterinary.

Meanwhile, Audrey is being treated at Danbury Hospital for a broken ankle, elbow, and three fractured ribs.

We can't imagine what would have happened if Figo hadn't responded so heroically! We applaud his bravery and are glad he and Audrey are on the road to recovery!

Suge Knight Claims He Fired His Lawyers & That He's Suffering From Blindness?!

Filed under: Legal MattersHealthViolence

no title

The third time is definitely NOT the charm for Suge Knight.

The rapper was hospitalized for a third time in one month after appearing in court to face murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run charges.

Suge told a Los Angeles Superior Court judge on Monday that he had been receiving inadequate medical care since being jailed in January over the alleged hit-and-run death of his friend, Terry Carter.

The 49-year-old said he had been suffering from blindness in one eye and only 15 percent vision in the other, and had lost 35 pounds while in custody.

Suge also stated he had difficulty comprehending the proceedings.

In his court appearance, Suge told the judge that he fired the lawyers present and wanted to represent himself. While Suge tried to speak out during the proceedings, the judge apparently admonished him for doing so, which made Suge curse under his breath.

The judge wanted to transfer the Death Row Records founder's cases, but Suge had already been hospitalized again.

Another hearing has been set for March 9th, so we'll keep you posted on any updates.
