Bill Cosby’s latest accuser, Jennifer Thompson’s mother says she has written a letter to Cosby’s wife, Camille Cosby addressing her husband’s serial rape scandal.
Mr and Mrs. Thompson recently spoke with the Associated Press about their encounters with Cosby and claim he molested their 17-year-old daughter (who is now 44).
The Thompsons say they handed Cosby their daughter back in the late 1980s to help launch her modeling and acting career.
“We thought we were talking to Dr. Huxtable,” said William Thompson, referring to the comedian’s TV persona in the hit series “The Cosby Show.”
Cosby reassured the Thompsons that their then-17-year-old daughter, Jennifer, would be fine living in an apartment with other models as she launched her career. He promised to help the teen, they said.
Jennifer Thompson now says she passed through unwanted sexual advances from Cosby and once performed a sex act on the comedian. He then gave her $700. That encounter – their final – clouded Jennifer Thompson’s next two decades.
“Mother to mother, this letter was written from my heart,” wrote Judy Thompson wrote to Camille Cosby after she hinted her husband was the victim in an interview with CNN.
“Your husband crossed boundaries that never should have been breached,” Judy Thompson wrote to Camille Cosby. “He shattered her innocence.”
