Camille Cosby has issued a statement regarding husband Bill Cosby’s sexual assault case after it was ruled a mistrial Saturday. The jury could not come to a decision about the alleged sexual assault of Andrea Constand, who claimed three counts of aggravated indecent assault against “The Cosby Show” star in 2015.

“How do I describe the District Attorney? Heinously and exploitively ambitious,” Cosby began her statement. “How do I describe the judge? Overtly and arrogantly collaborating with the District Attorney. How do I describe the counsels for the accusers? Totally unethical. How do I describe many, but not all, general media? Blatantly vicious entities that continually disseminated intentional omissions of truths for the primary purpose of greedily selling sensationalism at the expense of a human life.”

Mrs. Cosby shared her statement through her husband’s Twitter account mere moments after Judge Steven O’Neill confirmed the deadlock Saturday morning.

“Historically, people have challenged injustices. I am grateful to any of the jurors who tenaciously fought to review the evidence; which is the rightful way to make a sound decision,” Cosby continued, before quoting, “Truth can be subdued, but not destroyed.”

She went on to thank counselors Brian McMonagle and Angela Agrusa, as well as Andrew Wyatt from their public relations team.

Cosby closed her statement by thanking her children, grandchildren, supporters, friends, and other family members who “never gave up on [them], despite it all.”

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele has already vowed to retry Cosby.

  1. Your husband belongs is J-A-I-L-O.

  2. Bridgett O'Keeffe says:

    My response to Mrs. Cosby’s comment? “Love of money and status is blind”.

  3. May Lavinia says:

    And the Truth: You married a PIG. Been with him long enough to become one too. All about the money, huh, Camille? LIAR.

  4. PS says:

    “I love how Camille Cosby feels her husband is so righteous.”

    Yes. Totally delusional and in denial.

  5. PS says:

    Geez. How does this woman sleep at night? Even if he didnt rape these women. He did cheat on her. Repeatedly. So why is she defending him? When she wasnt even there and can only go on his word. The word of a cheater.

  6. Bratt says:

    You are delusional smh he is a very sick old man and he will get what is coming to him believe you that!!

  7. Bill says:

    Hmmm… Denial, also can’t be destroyed – obviously.

  8. Jimmy Green says:

    Hmmm… she seems to be proud of her serial rapist. (And of course the money she inherits when he croaks).

  9. Cheryl H says:

    I love how Camille Cosby feels her husband is so righteous. She’s more blind than he is, apparently. And simply because it was a hung jury is not anywhere close to being the same as not guilty. I hope they retry him and finally get the conviction that should have been rendered in the first place. People need to look beyond his fame, current health status, etc. He had admitted to using drugs against women to have sex with them; and that alone is despicable and criminal. Another celebrity who’s fame has blinded people to the facts. He’s a pig!

  10. cdhaskell says:

    I can’t wait to see if the DA office will retrial against Bill Cosby again or drop it.

    • Sam says:

      The DA office stated they will retrial the case again. Just like the actress from “Girls”, Camille Cosby should keep her mouth shut, too. Bill Cosby is not innocent regardless if he sexual assaulted these women or not. The fact reminds that people in the entertainment industry knew that Bill Cosby had a reputation of having affairs with women. And Mrs. Cosby just collected her wife “allowance” and dealt with it all these years instead of divorcing him. Her statement just makes her a bigger fool and stupid.
