As Bill Cosby’s list of sexually assaulted women continues to grow, there’s one name that won’t be on there, Raven-Symoné. HipHopHangover, reported that child star was another sexual assault victim on the comedian’s roster. They website included an alleged excerpt from Raven’s attorney stating:
“…we among so many others are tired of the media worshipping and praising a man that has a past so terrible that it is unbelievable. My client (Raven-Symone) is also ready to tell her side of the story. A side that was kept quiet because of threats from being blackballed. There was no monetary compensation that made my client keep quiet, but more so the respect for Mr. Cosby. Well that respect has come to an end. And what we thought was a mistake or anomaly has surfaced to become a lifestyle. We will be pursuing damages that are not going to be disclosed at this time.”
However that was a complete lie—also it must be noted, that HipHopHangover is a satirical website—yet many other outlets picked up the story. Symoné was only six when the finale aired in ’92 and while The Cosby Show helped her rise to fame, she insist Cosby didn’t inappropriately touch her.
She took to her Instagram to slam the rumors while praising the man she knew, not the allegations against him. She posted a popular meme generated throwback picture of her with the caption, “I was NOT taking advantage of by Mr. Cosby when I was on the Cosby Show! I was practically a baby on that show and this is truly a disgusting rumor that I want no part of! Everyone on that show treated me with nothing but kindness. Now keep me out of this!”
