Bill Cosby has been making it to the top of almost all the latest celebrity news for all the wrong reasons. See, people who enjoy being in the limelight as much as he has done have to contend at one point or the other with allegations, true or otherwise, of clandestine affairs. What makes Cosby’s case different is actually the fact that most of the women he is alleged to have had something to do with are coming out with their allegations decades later. And they are not allegations of consensual affairs; they are actually rape and sexual abuse stories!
Leave it to the women to explain why they chose to wait so long to finally come forth and tell the whole world that the celebrated author once drugged and sexually abused them. What many people know, though, is that Bill Cosby must be worth a significant amount of money; and this could be the motivation of some women coming up with these allegations many years later.
The comedian’s net worth is apparently quite significant; he is worth about $400 million even though he is a known college dropout. Complete details here – celebrityabc.com/bill-cosby-net-worth
He was on an athletic scholarship at Temple University and took up employment as a bartender at a nearby bar. Sometimes, when the comics invited to entertain revellers failed to show up, Cosby would fill up for them. His talent began showing itself in this way and it was not long before he started going on comedy gigs at other clubs.
Seemingly, the returns from his comedy frolics were decent and in 1963, he dropped out of college to pursue an active career in this field. Temple University later on gave him an honorary degree much as he had dropped out of the institution. Today, he is known for being an ardent advocate for education and has drawn a few irritated murmurs when he talked about education and the black community in the USA which he is part of.
Nevertheless, he is remembered as being a class clown who failed tenth grade more than twice and finally dropped out of high school to join the Navy. He enlisted on a correspondence course while in the Navy which is how he got his GED.
It appears that though he may not have taken his studies seriously as a young man, Cosby knows the value of education and has talked about it in various forums. He is more acclaimed for being a fine comedian; though the recent allegations against him have appeared to dent his image in the public eye. Story of another successful comedian – Larry David
More than 30 women claiming to have crossed paths with Cosby are alleging to have been taken advantage of by the celebrity. He is no stranger to such controversies though. This is because the first sex scandal pitting him against Shawn Upshaw broke up in 1997 and it ended with Shaw’s daughter trying to extort money from the comedian.
Whether or not Bill Cosby will use a sizeable chunk of his $400 million estate to settle these cases is known only by him and his lawyers. What is clear though is that his wife has his back in all of it!
