Bill Cosby's fall from grace has been disturbing and far reaching, as the former comedian has been exposed for nearly 60 alleged sexual assaults against women over a course of decades. Now, it appears that Cosby and his legal team feel they have nothing to lose and are asking his accuser, Andrea Constand, to refund the money he paid her in a 2005 settlement, arguing that she and her lawyers violated the terms by cooperating in the criminal investigation against him.
The announcement came on Friday when Cosby's lawyers argued that the confidential settlement should be voided because the terms required Constand to tell him she was going to talk to police.
The 78-year-old comedian thinks that all the money, the amount of which is undisclosed, should be refunded. The judge didn't immediately rule on whether or not the supposed breach-of-contract suit could go forward.
While this recent announcement will do nothing for Cosby's public image, that aspect of his life maybe too far gone.
Cosby's legal team has been pursuing Constand and her lawyer, Dolores Troiani, ever since the deposition transcript was released.
The fallen comedian's legal battle with Constand is one of many civil suits Cosby is fighting from accusers, while a criminal case against him over his relationship with Constand is also ongoing.
