“This is truly a disgusting rumor that I want no part of.”
Raven-Symonè (28) recently took to social media to refute reported rumors that she claimed that Bill Cosby molested her when they both appeared on The Cosby Show.
The rumor was initially reported by a site called Hip-Hop Hangover, (a Gossip parody and satirical publication and for entertainment purposes only) which posted a story alleging that the actress had filed molestation charges after Cosby supposedly molested her after the 1992 series finale. Raven-Symonè would have been just 6 years old at the time.
Raven’s posted a message of Instagram, included a photo of her as Cliff Huxtable’s step-granddaughter Olivia, and a caption that read:
“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!”
Meanwhile, the fallout from the accusations against Cosby, made by model Janice Dickinson and a number of other women continues. This week, Netflix postponed the premiere of a Cosby comedy special, NBC scrapped a TV project and TV Land has pulled reruns of “The Cosby Show” from its lineup.
On a local note, comedian Bill Cosby’s scheduled Dec. 6 shows at the Tarrytown Music Hall are still on despite the sex abuse allegations against him, but some ticket holders say they’ll skip his appearance, reported The Journal New.
The afternoon and evening shows are sold out, but some patrons have told the music hall’s executive director, Bjorn Olsson, they are not going.
“We have some patrons who are concerned,” Olsson told The Journal News on Thursday. “Some are telling us they’re not going to be attending.”
