Bill Cosby’s support system is getting smaller and smaller.
The comedian and actor was found guilty of sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, a Temple University employee, in 2004.
Originally, when the case began, Keisha Knight Pulliam, who played Cosby’s daughter on The Cosby Show, stood behind her TV dad. Now, it seems she’s reportedly starting to step back after the verdict was handed down.
According to Radar Online, Cosby’s wife Camille is furious with Pulliam and according to a source close to the website because she won’t continue to support her husband.
“Camille and Keshia are at odds,” the source explained. “Camille wants Keshia to write a letter or make a statement supporting Bill after his guilty verdict. But Keshia has refused.”
The 39-year-old actress has a history of supporting Cosby throughout his trial and even arrived arm-in-arm with him at a Pennsylvania courthouse last June. Apparently, that open stance is now at odds.
“She thinks she has done enough,” the source added. “She’s even been to court and stood by Bill, but at this point she won’t do anything else. And Camille is furious.”
Camille Cosby herself was dragged after she tried to compare her husband’s case to that of Emmett Till, a 14-year-old African American male who was murdered in 1955 after a white woman made false accusations against him, claiming he whistled at her.
Bill Cosby remains on house arrest until his sentencing this summer.
