Raven-Symoné Comes Clean on Her Relationship With Bill Cosby

Raven-SymoneThe Bill Cosby sexual assault scandal continues to grow, but there's at least one person whose name won't be added to the list of his alleged victims -- Raven-Symoné. She may have rose to fame playing Cliff Huxtable's step-granddaughter Olivia on The Cosby Show in the 80s, but she took to social media on Wednesday, November 19, to clear up any confusion as to how she was treated onset.

The now 28-year-old posted this adorable throwback photo of herself as Olivia on The Cosby Show, along with the caption, "I was NOT taking advantage of by Mr. Cosby when I was on the Cosby Show! I was practically a baby on that show and this is truly a disgusting rumor that I want no part of! Everyone on that show treated me with nothing but kindness. Now keep me out of this!"

It was rumored on HipHipHangover.com that the child star may have been molested by Cosby in the past, but she was having none of it.

Former model Janice Dickinson joined to growing list of women who have recently accused Bill Cosby of sexually assaulting her this week, claiming that he drugged and raped her in 1982. Cosby's attorney Marty Singer called the accusation "a complete lie."

Dickinson said the reason she hadn't said anything before was that when she tried to write about it in her autobiography, Cosby's lawyers threatened to sue her if she didn't remove it. Singer released a statement saying, "You can confirm with Harper Collins that she never claimed that Mr. Cosby raped her, that no attorney representing Bill Cosby tried to kill the story ... and no one tried to prevent anything she wanted to say about Bill Cosby in her book ... there is documentary proof that Janice Dickinson is fabricating and lying about Bill Cosby."

Whether there's any truth to the now numerous allegations or not, it's no doubt affected the actor's career. Scheduled appearances on David Letterman and The Queen Latifah Show have been cancelled. Netflix has pulled the plug on Bill Cosby 77, a special which was filmed on his 77th birthday earlier this year, and set to debut on November 28. And NBC has cancelled and ceased development on the star's proposed sitcom comeback.

We can't know for sure what happened, if anything, between Cosby and these women, but it really does suck to be Bill Cosby right now.

Do you think Raven-Symoné is supporting her former costar, or merely asking to be left out of it?
