Camille Cosby has been married to Bill Cosby for over 50 years, but on Wednesday the Cosby matriarch will have to testify in a defamation lawsuit filed by seven women who have accused the comedian of sexual assault.

But will Camille stand by her man during her testimony? Or has she had enough, as one source in the New York Post recently said?


“My husband doesn’t deserve jail, but he does deserve every bit of the hell he’s going through now, even though he is still pretending that this hell doesn’t exist,” Camille reportedly said, according to a Page Six source.

According to the family source, Camille has known about Cosby’s infidelity throughout their marriage but begged him to be discreet about it.


“But she has been thoroughly humiliated, and believe me, her anger isn’t directed at the women,” the source said. “Bill has humiliated her, and the affairs he’s had have gotten out of hand, and this [criminal charge] is him reaping what he’s sown.”

The family source said that it’s not that Camille wants to protect her husband by not giving a deposition; it’s the mere fact that she finds it humiliating. 


“She’s still married to Bill because of all of the court stuff and now the criminal stuff,” the source said. “She knows that you can’t force a wife to testify against her husband, and she doesn’t want any part of this at all.”

Well, unfortunately, at this point, she has no choice.
