Kravitz says her mother is 'just staying out of it'

Aside from Joseph C. Phillips' essay titled "Of Course Bill Cosby Is Guilty," it's been radio silence for the cast of "The Cosby Show" ever since Bill Cosby's 2005 deposition made its way to the public. The documents included the star's admission to drugging women for sex, along with several other disturbing details that made it difficult to defend Cosby's character.

 

Fellow "Cosby" star Lisa Bonet has kept quiet about the case, but that doesn't mean she doesn't have an opinion about the allegations. In an interview with The Guardian, the actress' daughter, Zoe Kravitz, briefly discussed how her mother is handling the news and if she's opened up to anyone about the claims.

 

When asked if Bonet had talked to her daughter about the allegations, Kravitz said, "She hasn't, she really hasn't. She'd plead the fifth, even to me. I think she's just staying out of it. She's just as disgusted and concerned as everyone else is, but I don’t think she has any insight. It's news to her as well."

 

Kravitz was then asked did she understand why people would think her mother would know something, to which she replied: "Of course. She was on the show for a long time. She's also a beautiful woman. It makes people wonder. She's a very straightforward person. If there was something she felt the world needed to know that would help this case or help any women who had been abused, she would say something."

 

Cosby now stands accused of drugging and/or sexually assaulting more than 50 women, with the two most recent accusers coming forward last week. He is scheduled to be deposed in October in relation to a lawsuit filed by a woman who claims she was sexually assaulted in 1974.
