Jill Scott Bill Cosby: Cosby loses Jill Scott’s support,

Jill Scott Bill Cosby: Cosby loses Jill Scott’s support,, Last year, singer Jill Scott publicly defended Bill Cosby despite allegations that he drugged and sexually assaulted multiple women. On Monday, she withdrew her support and distanced herself from the comedian, explaining that there has never been any proof — until now.

On Monday, court documents from 2005 were made public, revealing that Cosby had admitted to obtaining Quaaludes for the purpose of drugging women. After reading these documents, Scott officially renounced her support for the 77-year-old comedian.

Scott posted the following tweets explaining her thought process:

About Bill Cosby. Sadly his own testimony offers PROOF of terrible deeds, which is ALL I have ever required to believe the accusations.

1) We live in America. Many African American men are detained &/or imprisoned for crimes without evidence. I will never jump on bandwagons

2) based on social media or hearsay. Proof will always matter more than public opinion. The sworn testimony is proof. Completely disgusted.

I stood by a man I respected and loved. I was wrong. It HURTS!!! When you get it ALL right, holla.

Scott may have changed her tune, but as The Guardian points out, many people responded asking why it took Cosby’s admission — rather than the testimonies of more than 40 women — to finally withdraw her support.
