Raven-Symoné: Keep Me Out of Cosby Drama

Slams "disgusting rumor" that TV legend targeted her.

Published November 20, 2014

With all the drama and allegations surrounding Bill Cosby these days, many folks are curious about what the TV legend's former co-stars have to say about it. Raven-Symoné, for one, wants nothing to do with the scandal. 

The actress, who was a child when she played Lisa Bonet's adorable stepdaughter, Olivia, on the show, found herself at the center of rumors that she was targeted by Cosby when they worked together. Posting to her Instagram, Raven retaliated against the rumors, calling them "disgusting."

"I was NOT [taken] 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," she wrote alongside a throwback pic of herself in character as Olivia. "Everyone on that show treated me with nothing but kindness. Now keep me out of this!"

Meanwhile, like his reputation, Cosby's career continues to take a nosedive. On the same day that Netflix and NBC both shelved projects with the comedy icon, TV Land announced that it will immediately pull episodes of The Cosby Show off of its schedule. 

Tuesday, former supermodel Janice Dickinson came forward with allegations that Cosby sexually abused her. Dickinson claims that the sitcom star drugged and then raped her in a hotel room in 1982.

Cosby continues to maintain his innocence, releasing a statement through his attorney making it clear that he will "not dignify [the allegations] with a response."
