Report: Bill Cosby's Health Is Deteriorating

Things are looking pretty bleak for the comedian.

Things aren't shaping up well for fallen comic Bill Cosby as new reports state his health is drastically deteriorating, so much so that he's completely lost his sense of sight.

According to Page Six, a source has reported that Cosby is now "completely blind" and is "in his own personal hell."

In addition to his physical restrictions, he is now reportedly also housebound in his Pennsylvania home with only his wife Camille by his side.

"His alleged victims may take some solace in the fact that he's in his own personal hell," the source said. "He has been suffering from a degenerative eye disease and is completely blind."

The source also added that the comedian once known as "America's Dad" has lost all respect from his high-up allies, as "All his Hollywood friends have turned their backs on him... His only friends are the small army of lawyers on his payroll."

Cosby's eyesight has reportedly been fading for some time as, back in January, one of his lawyers, Monique Pressley, said, "He's a 78-year-old blind man who they've chosen to charge. That's not a defense to a charge, that's just a fact."

The degenerative eye condition he is suffering from has been identified as keratoconus, a condition that causes the cornea of the eye to bulge.

Despite his physical condition, Cosby will stand trial on sexual assault charges at a date that is yet to be determined.
