Bill Cosby has been mostly silent about the sexual assault allegations against him over the past few months, but the embattled comedian's wife is speaking out on his behalf.
In a statement published by CBS, Camille Cosby says the comedian is "a wonderful husband, father and friend. He is the man you thought you knew." She also accuses the media of not properly vetting the allegations.
So far, 19 women have publicly come forward to accuse the 77-year-old comedian of sexual assault. The most recent accuser, model Beverly Johnson, says Cosby attempted to drug her, a familiar pattern in all of the allegations.
