Bill Cosby Gets a Standing Ovation As Woman Claims He Fondled Her At 15

In the wake of his many, many (we're up to 12 now) sex scandals and accusations, Bill Cosby has been canceling appearances left and right and venues have been refusing to host his one-man comedy show, probably out of fear that he will be booed off stage - or worse. But here's a bit of news you probably aren't used to reading about the actor: he received a standing ovation last night when he performed to a sold-out crowd in Florida. And, although Cosby still isn't talking when it comes to those sex claims, his attorney didn't hold back -- as yet another woman recently came forward to charge the actor with giving her alcohol and fondling her when she was just 15.


Bill's supporters reportedly shouted "I love you" and cheered loudly as the 77-year-old took the stage at the King Center in Melbourne -- flanked by extra security guards, which shouldn't surprise anyone.

His shows have been canceled in Nevada, South Carolina, Arizona, Illinois and Washington, Netflix has reportedly stated it will not be streaming his special Bill Cosby 77 on Thanksgiving AND TV Land has decided to stop airing The Cosby Show, but his Florida fans stuck by his side and reminded the nation that Cosby hasn't been convicted of any crimes.

One of Cosby's attorneys released the following statement on Friday -- as THREE more women reportedly came forward with claims that Cosby sexually assaulted them: "The new, never-before-heard claims from women who have come forward in the past two weeks with unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40, or even 50 years ago have escalated far past the point of absurdity. It is long past time for this media vilification of Mr. Cosby to stop."

One of the latest alleged victims to accuse Cosby of sexual abuse is Renita Chaney Hill, who says the actor gave her alcoholic drinks when she was 15, while they worked together on the TV program Picture Pages. Hill says she believes the drinks were spiked with a drug because she says she remembers him kissing and fondling her in his hotel room until she would pass out. Hill claims her on-off relationship with Cosby lasted for four years.
