Bill Cosby Divorce? Tabloid Says Wife Camille Cosby Might File for Divorce

November 25, 2014 Updated: November 25, 2014

Bill Cosby’s wife Camille Cosby may file for divorce as the abuse allegations against her husband keep coming in.

At least 18 women have come forward and accused Cosby of sexually abusing them between the years of 1964 and 2004.

Bill, 77, and Camille, 68, have been married for 50 years.

The new tabloid report says that the scandals surrounding Bill could lead to a $350 million divorce.

A source told the National Enquirer in the unverified report that Cosby and his wife “survived the tragic murder of their beloved son, and she bravely stood by Bill during the disclosure of an extramarital affair and a ‘love child.'”

“But there’s only so much more she can take,” the source added.

Another insider said: “With one woman after another now coming forward, Bill’s image is being destroyed, and all their years of hard work for charity and philanthropy are being tarnished.

“I know Camille is feeling humiliated by all this – and, even worse, she’s come under personal attack.”

There don’t seem to be any other reports about a possible divorce, although it makes sense with the growing number of women stepping forward to say that Cosby abused them at one time or another.



Cosby has denied the accusations.

The Daily Beast compiled the 18 women identified so far, stretching back to 1965 when a 22-year-old woman says she met Cosby and he invited her for drinks. After that, she doesn’t remember much, and says “he must have drugged me.”

Most of the allegations include Cosby allegedly putting drugs in drinks.

The Daily Mirror notes, though, that Camille is standing by her husband as a loyal wife. In one of her only appearances since the allegations began piling up, Camille sits next to her husband and often looks adoringly at him.

“They say actions speak louder than words, and in the interview, her body language told the story of a loyal wife – a slightly nervous one, if you look at her hands. Camille resembles a woman who hasn’t had an easy life, despite the family’s millions,” the Mirror says.

“And as America continues to watch while her husband’s legacy falls apart, things will get even tougher for her. For she will have to decide if she’s had enough of being THAT strong woman. Frankly, you couldn’t blame her if she chose to relinquish her role.”

The scandal got another layer with a recent tabloid report–an interview with a former Enquirer reporter published in the New York Post–says that Cosby even tried to kill an Enquirer story in 1989 by giving the tabloid information about his daughter Erinn’s drug problems. 

“My editor told me that daddy Cosby was the source. He ratted out his flesh and blood,” said the source.

Cosby was quoted in the flattering story as saying, “Deep down inside, she knows we love her.”
