Lisa Bonet has finally broken her silence about Bill Cosby, and now we know why she waited so long.
The actress who co-starred on The Cosby Show with the man now facing dozens of sexual assault allegations has never been willing to comment on the controversy, until now.
While Lisa Bonet maintains that she had no prior knowledge of the alleged incidents, she does reveal that she had a bad feeling about her boss for years.
“There was just energy. And that type of sinister, shadow energy cannot be concealed,” she told Net-a-Porter.
When Bonet was asked if she felt a darkness about him, she confirmed she did. “Always. And if I had anything more to reveal then it would have happened a long time ago. That’s my nature. The truth will set you free.”
The 50-year-old mother of another Hollywood A-lister, Zoe Kravitz, is insistent that Cosby’s bad energy didn’t tarnish her memories of time spent on the sets of The Cosby Show and its spin-off, A Different World, even though she was fired from the series due to creative differences.
“I don’t need to say, ‘I told you so’,” Lisa Bonet says. “I just leave all that to karma and justice and what will be.”
Up until now, Lisa Bonet has remained mum about the allegations of sexual assault and rape that have surfaced over the past few years, but Zoe stepped up and let the world know where her mom stood on the subject back in 2015.
“She hasn’t, she really hasn’t [talked],” Kravitz told The Guardian. “She’d plead the fifth, even to me. I think she’s just staying out of it. She’s just as disgusted and concerned as everyone else is, but I don’t think she has any insight. It’s news to her as well.”
Lisa Bonet also opened up about her love affair with her hot as hell husband, Jason Momoa, despite their habit for keeping things private.
“I can’t say it was full-on from the moment we saw each other, but we have been together from the day that we met,” she says after describing the night they met. “In that moment, love came and it came big, and he did not run as I think a lot of men do…He basically picked me up and threw me over his shoulder, caveman style!”
She also revealed that she, Momoa, and her ex-husband, Lenny Kravitz, get along very well. “It’s fantastic. It’s full-on family love,”
