Bill Cosby’s daughter Evin is following in her mother’s footsteps. Less than 24 hours after the longtime actor and comedian's wife, Camille, released a statement showing her support for her "The Cosby Star" star beau, Cosby’s 38-year-old daughter, Evin, released a similar comment.
“He is the FATHER you thought you knew,” Evin said told Access Hollywood Tuesday. “‘The Cosby Show’ was my today’s TV reality show. Thank you. That’s all I would like to say.”
As Yahoo News reported, Evin also took her Facebook page to address the allegations against her 77-year-old father Monday night. In recent weeks, dozens of women-- including models Janice Dickson and Beverly Johnson-- have accused the former sitcom star of drugging and/or rapping them during various periods over the past four decades.
“Rape is a serious allegation and it is suppose to be taken VERY seriously but so is Falsely accusing someone,” Evin wrote on her social media account. “When someone rapes a person they go to prison. THAT should also happen to the person that has wrongfully accused an innocent victim…”
While Evin did not name any of her father’s alleged victims, she did slam his accusers for their drugging claims. “Drugged-- you can remember the whole damn day but you were drugged? Just sayin,” she wrote.
Cosby’s wife of 50 years, Camille, released a statement regarding allegations against her husband Monday. “He is a kind man, a funny man, and a wonderful husband, father and friend. He is the man you thought you knew," she said. "A different man has been portrayed in the media over the last two months. It is the portrait of a man I do not know."
Camille's statement went on to compare the allegations against her husband to Rolling Stone magazine’s report on rape at the University of Virginia, and questioning if her husband is the true victim in this case.
“The story was heart-breaking, but ultimately appears to be proved to be untrue,” she said. “Many in the media were quick to link that story to stories about my husband— until that story unwound. None of us will ever want to be in the position of attacking a victim. But the question should be asked -- who is the victim?”
Cosby, who has claimed to be innocent since the allegations erupted, last spoke out about the controversy to Page Six Friday. After stating that he expects only members of the press from black-owned media to remain impartial when reporting on the claims against him, the actor addressed his relationship with Camille.
"Love and the strength of womanhood," he said on how his wife has remained strong in the wake of the controversies. "Let me say it again, love and the strength of womanhood. And, you could reverse it, the strength of womanhood and love."
