It's rumored that Bill Cosby's wife, Camille Cosby, has reached her breaking point and no longer wants to be the comedian's "crutch." The report comes just weeks after she was ordered by a federal judge to testify in a defamation suit brought against him by seven women who allege the actor sexually assaulted them.
According to Page Six, Camille feels her husband of 52 years has humiliated her. The outlet cites a source close to the family as saying that Camille doesn't think Bill should be sent to jail but does think he deserves “every bit of hell he’s going through.”
The source continued, "She has been thoroughly humiliated and believe me, her anger isn’t directed at the women. Bill has humiliated her, and the affairs he’s had have gotten out of hand and this [criminal charge] is him reaping what he’s sown.”
Page Six also claims that Camille initially "scoffed" at the allegations against Bill, but as more and more women came forward she "was sickened."
“She’s been fighting giving a deposition, but that’s not because she wants to keep protecting Bill, it’s because it’s so humiliating,” the source said. “She knows that you can’t force a wife to testify against her husband and she doesn’t want any part of this at all.”
Camille was subpoenaed last month to testify. According to People magazine, Camille's deposition is scheduled to begin Wednesday morning at the Marriott hotel in Springfield, Massachusetts. Her husband's attorneys, however, are planning to appeal the judge's decision to make her testify.
“I don’t think there’s any basis for appeal,” attorney Joseph Cammarata told the outlet. “Absent a court order directly that she need not appear, we expect that she will honor the subpoena and give testimony.”
As previously reported, Cosby was arraigned last week in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, on charges of aggravated indecent assault. He is currently out on $1 million bail.
