Cosby’s Daughter Evin Breaks Silence; Lashes Out Against Accusers

evin and bill cosby

Bill Cosby’s daughter Evin is speaking out for the first time since her dad’s sexual assault allegations.

“He is the FATHER you thought you knew. The Cosby Show was my today’s TV reality show. Thank you. That’s all I would like to say :)” the 38-year-old said in a statement to “Access Hollywood.”

Additionally, Evin took to her Facebook page to voice her opinion on the allegations her father is facing.

“Love my mom,” she posted on Monday after her mother Camille Cosby released a statement to the media defending her husband. Evin also voiced a strong opinion on rape.

“Rape is a serious allegation and it is supposed to be taken VERY seriously but so is falsely accusing someone. When someone rapes a person they go to prison. THAT should also happen to the person that has wrongfully accused an innocent victim. They are not ONLY destroying innocent people’s life they are ALSO making it hard for the MEN and Women to find justice when they have been raped,” she wrote.

She questioned the validity of the alleged victim’s recollections of the supposed incidents.

“Drugged – you can remember the whole damn day but you were drugged? Just sayin. Memory – you can remember you looked at (allegedly) each other, people were starring allegedly remembering your home address allegedly the name you called him allegedly but you were allegedly drugged,” Evin said.

Evin also took time to express gratitude for the support she and her family has received.

“I would like to thank EVERYONE that has been sharing, voicing and putting their beautiful positive energy out there for me and my family. There will always be jealous, vengeful and crazy people out there to break anyone down. Every day we wake up and appreciate the love and support from everyone. There’s more positive in life then we think. It’s the BS that can be overwhelming. We keep fighting each day. The challenges in life can only make us stronger. The ones that are angry can’t live as easy as the ones that can love, RESPECT and not to find the easy way out by making FALSE accusations. It’s a shame how some people sit behind the computer waiting for bad things to happen to someone. Isn’t it easier to be happy? And to want the best for someone that has done such great things in life? It could be a friend, a family or a pet…. Just be HAPPY! It’s waaaaay easier. Thank you again!,” she posted. “Thank you Jill Scott and Faizon Love!! I would also like say THANK YOU for the all the other intelligent people that know what this is! We are standing strong! Xoxo- Evin”

 

Whoopi Questions Beverly Johnson on her Bill Cosby Story (Watch)

whoopi and beverly

Whoopi Goldberg to a chance to question Beverly Johnson directly about her account of being drugged and nearly sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby.

Johnson, who previously conducted interviews with all three of the broadcast morning shows from her home in L.A., joined the women of “The View” at their New York studio on Monday. She described first-hand the evening in which she says Cosby drugged and attacked her.

Whoopi has repeatedly stated on-air that she will not rush to judgment of Cosby despite over 20 different women accusing the comedian of rape or sexual assault.

Johnson went public with her allegations against Cosby on Thursday in an essay for Vanity Fair, writing that he drugged her cappuccino while auditioning for the comedian in his home. Johnson says she knew she was drugged but was able to remain conscious and recalls calling Cosby a “mother**ker” repeatedly to his face before he kicked her out.

“I felt such a loss,” Johnson said on “The View.” She claims Cosby forcibly removed her from his home and put her in a cab, saying that afterward she felt: “such a sense of disappointment. I was devastated.”

Goldberg questioned Johnson on whether or not she told anybody about the incident and whether or not she was worried about what substance she could have been given.

“Was it such a feeling, the drugs, that you weren’t worried what it might be?” Goldberg asked. “If you know that you’ve been drugged, were you worried about what you might have ingested?”

“At that point, I was just struggling to stay conscious,” Johnson said. “So at that point, you’re not thinking about anything except for what I just told you.”

“Did you ask the doorman the next day what condition you were or did you say anything?” Goldberg asked.

“No I didn’t. I basically just put my head down and just tried to get out. This is not about Mr. Cosby. He’s just a lightning rod for a conversation about violence against women.

Johnson went on to explain that she felt the need to come forward after so many other women publicly accused Cosby of similar crimes.

“I was the one who wasn’t raped, I don’t think, but who had a lot of the experiences that a lot of the other women have had and I’m coming forward just to tell the truth,” Johnson said.

She continued: “I think what should happen is that people who have experienced sexual abuse and violence should come forward and not be afraid to speak up and speak out.”

Rosie O’Donnell, who has come out strongly against Cosby in previous episodes, thanked Johnson for coming on the show.

“By you doing so you have given every one of us a voice so we thank you,” O’Donnell said.

Mayweather Riled Earl Hayes Over Wife’s Alleged Infidelity Before Killing?

Earl Hayes (L), Stephanie Moseley and Floyd Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather reportedly riled up his friend Earl Hayes over his wife’s infidelity to the point Hayes gunned her down, and now the LAPD wants to bring the boxer in for QUESTIONING, multiple sources tell TMZ.

As previously reported, Floyd was on FaceTime with his rapper friend MONDAY MORNING when the shots were fired. Now, according to the website, Mayweather was telling Hayes he should leave his wife, Stephanie Moseley — a backup dancer and star of VH1’s “Hit the Floor” — because she was bad for his career.

Hayes was upset over what he thought was repeated infidelity, including a fling he CLAIMED Stephanie had with Trey Songz. One Mayweather source says Floyd challenged Hayes, saying he was weak for not leaving her.

TMZ reports:

At that point, as Floyd was on FaceTime, Hayes went off and said he was going to gun down Stephanie. We’re told Floyd didn’t even know Stephanie was in the apartment, but when he realized it the boxer begged Hayes not to go through with it.

Our law enforcement sources say Hayes went into the bathroom and fired 10 to 12 shots as Stephanie was taking a bath. We’re told she was hit multiple times.

Neighbors who heard the shots called the LAPD and cops rushed to the scene, but when they got to the door they heard another shot and retreated. That shot was Hayes taking his own life.

The SWAT team showed up and broke down the door. Cops FOUND Stephanie’s body in the bathtub and Hayes was in the bedroom.

We’re now told the LAPD wants to INTERVIEW Floyd, presumably because he was a witness to the murder-suicide.

Sources CONNECTED with Hayes tell us … around 2 years ago he separated from Stephanie because of what he says was her affair with Songz. They got back together but, as one friend put it, “He was crushed and never got over it.” We’re told he frequently brought up Songz.

Hayes accused Moseley of having multiple affairs with various other entertainers. She was a backup dancer who WORKED with numerous famous singers, including Chris Brown and Usher, but we’re told Hayes never mentioned them as a source of conflict.

Hayes and Moseley married in 2008 and his friends say he loved her and tried rationalizing staying together.

Court Docs Reveal Struggle Of Kristoff St. John’s Son Before Suicide

julian and kristoff st john

Julian St. John, the late son of “Young & The Restless” star Kristoff St. John and pro boxer Mia St. John, will be laid to rest today on his 25th birthday after he reportedly took his own life on Nov. 23.

His parents recently spoke out about their son’s ongoing struggle with schizophrenia. Today, RadarOnline is reporting more details about Julian’s struggle to get well, including multiple arrests, domestic violence, meth use, and REHAB attempts.

Radar Online reports:

According to court documents, Julian’s serious trouble started when he was 19. On April 21, 2009, he was arrested by the LAPD for a misdemeanor DUI and found to be under the influence of a controlled substance, according to the docs.

The outcome was a harsh lesson for the teenager. He was not only found guilty, but given 36 months of probation and sentenced to 90 days in jail. As part of the ruling, Julian had to enroll in a three-month ALCOHOL AND DRUG prevention PROGRAM. But in lieu of serving time behind bars, he ended up entering a live-in PROGRAM.

Julian’s run-ins with the law only escalated as the years came and went. By 2011, he had been arrested for domestic battery in Topanga, Calif. resulting in a two-day jail stint and completion of a 52-week domestic violence program. And just weeks later, the judge issued a warrant for his arrest again for failing to show up in court, causing Julian to spend more time behind bars.

In April 2012, according to the court documents, Julian was placed under a doctor’s care instead of entering a domestic violence program.

But even a physician’s supervision couldn’t keep Julian out of trouble. On July 11, 2012, his probation was revoked after failing to appear before a judge for a status update and another warrant was issued for his arrest, resulting in 60 days in jail.

From that point on, it seemed that Julian was on the road to recovery for over a year, but slipped back into a world of drugs. He was arrested on Nov. 22, 2013, for possession of paraphernalia used for injecting or smoking opium, as stated in the court documents.

Julian ended up pleading guilty and a Van Nuys, Calif. judge ordered him to stay on his medication and enroll in a substance TREATMENT PROGRAM.

Less than three months later, another warrant was issued for his arrest in the amount of $30,000 and he was released into the care of his mother, Mia, in June.

And weeks before he reportedly took his own life he was arrested for the seventh time in North Hollywood, Calif., for possession of methamphetamine, and was given 45 days in jail.

Julian ended up paying the ultimate price when his body was found in the bathroom of a hospital in Long Beach just days before Thanksgiving.

In a statement released Dec. 3 to Entertainment Tonight, Julian’s father shared the sad news: “His legacy will live on in our hearts and for those that CONTINUE to suffer from this insidious disease,” Kristoff said in part. “My ex-wife Mia, Julian’s sisters Paris and Lola and I, are all devastated beyond words and belief. We mourn the loss of our son, brother, artist, poet, and a giant of a young man. A beautiful life gone much too soon. Julian will forever be remembered as he now takes flight with Angels.”

If you, or anyone you know, is struggling with thoughts of suicide, please immediately seek help — you can speak with a skilled, trained counselor at a national Suicide Prevention Lifeline crisis center in your area, anytime 24/7 — call 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

 

Cosby’s Hollywood Star Vandalized with Word ‘Rapist'; Debbie Allen Says His Rep is ‘Tarnished’ (Watch)

Bill Cosby

Bill Cosby’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been defaced with the word “rapist” scrawled repeatedly in black ink.

The damage – discovered this morning (Dec. 5), as seen in the pic below taken by Hip Hop Hollywood – comes as multiple sexual abuse allegations against him have surfaced in recent weeks.

“The Hollywood Walk of Fame is an institution celebrating the positive contributions of the inductees,” the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce said in a statement with regards to the vandalization. “When people are unhappy with one of our honorees, we would hope that they would project their anger in more positive ways then to vandalize a California State landmark. The star is being cleaned up at this time.”

The damage comes just one day after legendary choreographer Debbie Allen spoke out about the rape allegations in an interview with MSNBC. The Emmy award winner has a lengthy PROFESSIONAL history with Cosby as she worked alongside him for years directing “A Different World” in addition to making appearances on “The Cosby Show.” Her younger sister, Phylicia Rashad, also starred on the hit sitcom as Clair Huxtable from 1984 to 1982.

“I think it certainly is tarnished…that anyone is asking the question,” she said of Cosby’s reputation. “Just imagine Mickey Mouse saying that he raped Minnie. Mickey Mouse is part of the fabric of America. Whether he did it or not, the question is being raised.”

Allen, CONTINUED, noting that her sympathies go to Cosby’s wife. “Who I really think about is Camille,” she said. “Camille is beautiful, and they’ve gone through so much, with the loss of their son, so many things. This is out of the blue, it’s something unexpected. None of us can wrap our minds around it right now.”
