Camille Cosby Hires Lawyer To Investigate Judge In Bill Cosby Case

Former prosecutor Brian R. Perry signed on to help uncover alleged bias against the  81-year-old comedian.

Camille Cosby has hired a lawyer to investigate the judge who will sentence Bill Cosby next week. The 74-year-old producer and author announced Friday (Sept. 21), that she has retained former prosecutor Brian W. Perry to “facilitate efforts to uncover the truth regarding the longstanding and ongoing feud” between Pennsylvania Judge Steven T. O’Neill and Bruce Castor, the former Montgomery County District Attorney who previously refused to prosecute Cosby over a decade ago.

Earlier in the week, Camille filed a request for a full investigation of Judge O’Neill, sighting “continuing unethical conduct.”

“Mr. Perry will provide the Judicial Conduct Board with recent written communications from Mr. Castor that contradict the judge’s claim that there is no grudge,” the announcement reads, noting an email in which Castor references O’Neill’s “potential bias” that he did not “disclose.”

In her statement, Camille alleges that O’Neill and Castor's feud dates back to the late ‘90s, when they both ran for the Montgomery County D.A. seat. O’Neill dropped out of the race after Castor allegedly used his ex-girlfriend as a political pawn to throw off the race.

Bill Cosby was tipped off about the “feud,” and planned to expose O’Neill during a two-day hearing. The Cosby Show star subpoenaed, among others, the “former female DA” in question who had been “ordered to disrupt” an important debate in which O’Neill “performed poorly,” subsequently ending his chances at beating Castor for D.A.

“One week prior to my request for investigation, Bill Cosby filed a motion demanding that the judge provide a full accounting of his longstanding feud with and bias against Bruce Castor,” Camille writes. O’Neill denied the request for a hearing, essentially calling it a desperate last-minute attempt on Cosby’s part. “No ‘grudge,’ animus, bias or prejudice can be claimed because it simply does not exist,”  O’Neill wrote in his decision.

The latest turn in Cosby’s legal case follows a new report that claims the FBI doctored key recordings used to help convict the 81-year-old comedian of aggravated indecent assault earlier in the year. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 24.

Ty Dolla $ign Releases New Album Feat. Nicki Minaj, Roddy Ricch, Kanye West And More

After a three-year album hiatus, Ty Dolla $ign released his latest studio effort, Featuring Ty Dolla $ign, on Friday (Oct. 23).

The 25-track album features appearances from Nicki Minaj, Kid Cudi, FKA Twigs, Roddy Ricch, Jhené Aiko, Kehlani, 6lack, Young Thug, Music Soulchild, Skrillex, Quavo, Anderson Paak, Post Malone, Kanye West, and more.

Powered by previously released singles, “Ego Death,” Expensive” and By Yourself,” the new album flexes a different music muscle for the Grammy-nominated recording artists who steered clear of  making club records.

“I was intentionally trying to not make club songs [talking about] hoes and *itches and all the sh*t I used to talk about,” Ty told Vulture in a recent interview. “I was trying to, like, talk about my life, and what it is now, and really do something different with it. I got a daughter going to high school this year, and she’s paying attention, and all her friends are paying attention, so I can’t talk as crazy or do the crazy sh*t that I used to do.”

Jay Z Launches His Own Cannabis Brand

Jay Z is venturing into the world of cannabis. The  mogul officially announced the launch of his new cannabis brand, Monogram, on Friday (Oct. 23) marking his first product collaboration since becoming chief brand strategists of the Northern California-based dispensary, Caliva, last year.

“Monogram seeks to redefine what cannabis means to consumers today,” the company said in a press release. As many marijuana storefronts have implemented new rules amid the global pandemic, Monogram is also planing to launch an e-commerce sales option, “In an effort to provide a more tailored customer experience.”

Caliva and Hov opened their first Southern California storefront last year. Besides providing quality products, Hov aims to use his position at Caliva to help the formerly incarcerated (many of whom are not reaping the benefits of marijuana legalization) through advocacy, job training, and employee and workforce development.

According to the company website, Monogram uses “expert growers” to ensure that each marijuana flowers receives the “respect it deserves” in every stage of the growth process. Additionally, Monogram flowers are grown in small batches so that every plant gets “personalized attention.”
