Bill Cosby's Side of the Story Against Beverly Johnson (Pictures)
CNN has responded with a fiery retort at Bill Cosby's lawyer. CNN representatives were defending a decision NOT to include Beverly Johnson's boyfriend as part of a network special. The Network described him as a criminal with an ax to grind.
Cosby's lawyer, Martin Singer countered on Friday with a pretty nasty as well. He asserted that they were rigging a story to exploit the comedian. Model, Beverly Johnson accused Cosby of drugging her in the 1980s. Singer added that Johnson spoke very highly of Cosby during this time and never mentioned the incident.
Johnson’s live in boyfriend; Mark Burk wasn’t present when the alleged drugging occurred, but she claims she has complained to him about the incident many times. CNN also stated that the relevance of Johnson saying bad things to Burk about Cosby is immaterial.
Burk also has a criminal history, multiple restraining orders keeping him away from Johnson and threats to kill her.
CNN also cites that Burk isn't credible because he filed a bogus lawsuit against Johnson for palimony.
