In a 14-page defamation lawsuit against one of his rape accusers, Beverly Johnson, Bill Cosby says she’s making it all up to promote her autobiography. He also claims he’s blind so he couldn’t have raped her. Sure. Ok.
The 78-year-old — accused of being a serial knockout drug rapist that has attacked about 100 women over a 43-year period — has suffered from vision problems due to glaucoma, it can be revealed. But Cosby is also battling keratoconus — a disorder that alters the shape of the corneas. The condition causes his images to distort, multiply or streak. The lawsuit claimed: “Mr. Cosby has suffered from a degenerative eye condition for years which has steadily worsened recently to the point that he is for over a year has been legally and functionally blind.”
Is that bullshit? Sounds like bullshit.
Renowned New York City criminal defense attorney Murray Richman told Radar Cosby is pulling out the going blind card because he wants to show that he has a “disability that makes him physically incapable of doing all those things that he has alleged to have done.” “It’s a bulls**t defense,” said Murray, who has represented Jay-Z and other prominent clients in his 52-year legal career. “The jury isn’t going to buy that.”
I don’t recall a seeing eye dog in the Jell-O Pudding Pops commercials in the mid-80s, and since he allegedly raped Beverly Johnson in the mid-80s, I’m not exactly sure what this has to do with anything. If he was blind, that might explain the sweaters. Might.
