In an exclusive report published Monday night, Page Six writes that accused serial rapist Bill Cosby is now “completely blind.” The formerly beloved comedian and actor reportedly has keratoconus, a degenerative eye condition, and has been “confined to his Pennsylvania home” since around July 12, his 78th birthday.
A “source close to Cosby” told Page Six:
“His alleged victims may take some solace in the fact that he’s in his own personal hell. He has been suffering from a degenerative eye disease and is completely blind... All his Hollywood friends have turned their backs on him...The only person on his side is his wife, Camille, who is masterminding his defense. His only friends are the small army of lawyers on his payroll.”
The lawyers in question have not commented on these new claims, though they have referred to him as a “blind man” in the past. As for whether or not the many women who have accused Cosby of assault are finding “some solace in the fact that he’s in his own personal hell,” let’s revisit a quote from one victim, Barbara Bowman:
“I felt like a prisoner. I felt I was kidnapped and hiding in plain sight. I could have walked down any street of Manhattan at any time and said, ‘I’m being raped and drugged by Bill Cosby,’ but who the hell would have believed me? Nobody, nobody.”
