Comedian/Actor Bill Cosby recently settled a civil suit filed by Andrea Constand, an ex-Temple University employee, who alleges that the former Cosby Show star drugged and molested her while she was visiting his home in January 2004.

The suit claims that Cosby, whom Constand had considered a “great friend and mentor,” invited her to his Pennsylvania home to offer assistance with a career move she was contemplating.

While the two conversed, Constand expressed to Cosby that she was stressed about making her career decision. Cosby then offered her three blue pills, which he allegedly told her were herbal medication, that would help her relax.

After taking all three pills at Cosby’s assurance, Constand told Cosby that she didn’t feel well.

According to published reports, Cosby then helped her to the sofa (as she had trouble walking on her own) and allegedly molested her while she laid unconscious.

Constand told police that she delayed her allegations for a year due to concerns over her job status as a Temple University employee (Cosby’s alma mater) and Cosby’s fame.

A federal judge overseeing the case earlier denied Cosby’s request for a gag order and the plaintiff’s request to shield the names of a dozen other women who say Cosby assaulted them.

Financial terms of the settlement were not disclosed but court documents state that Constand was suing in excess of $150,000.

This is the latest controversy for the popular comedian who has a history of sexual assault accusations.

Over the past year, Cosby made even more headlines for accusing rap music, black parents and educators for neglecting today’s youth.

THIS IS A SHAME. HE TRIED VERY HARD DIRECTING THE ATTENTION ELSE WHERE BY TRYING TO ADDRESS THE NATION IN RAISING THERE KIDS. ALL THE WHILE HE IS THE ONE THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN UNDER WATCHFUL EYE! THERE IS AN OLD SAYING THAT SAY- 1 PERSON MIGHT ACCUSE YOU OF SOMETHING, AND IT MIGHT NOT BE TRUE, BUT IF 20 PEOPLE ARE STATING THE SAME THING THEN “SOMETHING” MUST BE TRUE ABOUT IT! I UNDERSTAND LIVING IN THE SPOT LIGHT MAY BE A TARGET FOR SOME, BUT THESE ALLEGATIONS ARE MORE THAN A BASES OF FINANCIAL GAIN! LET’S NOT LIVE IN DENIAL BECAUSE OF WHO WE LOVE. ACCEPT, FORGIVE, AND MOVE ON!!! JAZZY-OKC

Lying trick! It’s a conspiracy to keep black folks down, and it’s black folks doing it! Why go out & work if uncle sam will pay us to keep having kids we can’t afford? If black folks actually got an education, we won’t be able to blame whitey for our problems! Then Jesse & Al will be out of a job! We can’t have that! Why not have some bipolar nut make false claims against the one person who has the doodads to say what black folks need to hear versus what they want?

I’d be willing to bet that almost everyone who commented here in support of Cosby are black. I don’t even have to read your names, I merely need to look at what you have written. Trevonte- the world loves a scandal, it doesn’t matter if you are black, white or galvanized. You can’t say black people are equal, then commit crimes, then say “you only want to punish us because we’re black!” I don’t believe that the majority of black people even want equality because then they would have nobody to blame but themselves when things went wrong. If I tried to have an all white sorority or a “United Whitey College Fund” you would be all over me like a fly on crap, but it’s ok for you all to do it, because your above the laws-even the ones you fought for, like equality. I’m not racist, but almost every black person I’ve ever met has treated me with some degree of rudeness or disrespect just because I was white. In reality, who has gotten the brunt of scrutiny lately? White women. Look at Martha Stewart… they proved nothing against her, yet she did time. The don’t leave Britney or any other white celebrity alone long enough to catch a breath and then wonder why they are losing it. Bill Cosby screwed around with those girls as sure as the sun is going to come up tomorow. The difference between Cosby and the average sex offender is that Cosby has money and friends in high places. He wasn’t accused because of his race, but it may be his race and gender that saved him from a similar fate as the Martha Stewarts. Even if Martha did do it, I’d rather have someone cheat me out of a couple of bucks than drug and rape me. Way to go Bill! You and OJ should get together and compare notes.

This is nothing but hogwash. There’s no way on Earth Mr. Cosby would do anything like this.

Personally, I have felt creeped out by Cosby for a long time. He looks like a classic pedophile to me. He’s a weird, creepy dude. The Cosby show is completely unbelievable and unrealistic, and people who love that show are living in fantasy-land. Might as well been produced by Disney.

i don’t care if you did or did’nt do it because that’s between you and the man above. all i can say is stop being so hard on us black folk because we need more encouragement than discouragement.

I don’t believe Bill did this at all. It is simply not in his character. People are trying to make a few bucks of him. They need 2 get a life!

I too find it hard to believe that Bill Cosby would be capable of such heinous actions, but, hey, he has been hosting the Los Angeles Playboy Jazz Festivals since 1979 — how could a good man link himself with such an evil organization and remain untouched by their philosophy about sex and women? It is hard to think that he may not be the wonderful husband and father portrayed on “The Cosby Show.” Guess the only one you can count on is God…

I personally like Bill, I was privilaged enough to have him wave at me as he was entering the theatre before a show once. I would like to believe that Bill is innocent, and I do give him the benefit of the doubt. However, we are all born sinners, each man and woman has to answer the question that Jesus asked His deciples “who do you say that I am?” Is He your Lord? Don’t even point your fingers, but instead, bow your knee and ask for forgiveness of your own sins, make Him your Lord and in due time He will reward you with Heaven, it doesn’t matter if you are black white or as the late Mabel King said in the Jerk, “the color of a baboons behind” We are all created by God and must make a personal decision to accept Christs payment for our sin debt or pay for it ourselves in Hell. I choose salvation through Jesus. And Bill if you see this,know that this ol’ white boy is praying for you! God Bless
