Jill Scott waves to fans outside Good Morning America in New York City

R&B singer Jill Scott is done defending beloved American comedian Bill Cosby from rape allegations made by multiple women who mysteriously waited for decades to come forward.

Scott, 43, says she was wrong for standing by Cosby after his deposition from a 2005 lawsuit was unsealed by a judge. In the deposition, Cosby, 78, admitted giving women the party drug Quaalude before having consensual sex with them.

“About Bill Cosby. Sadly his own testimony offers proof of terrible deeds, which is all I have ever required to believe the accusations,” she tweeted. “I stood by a man I respected and loved. I was wrong. it hurts!”

In an interview with The Huffington Post, Scott pointed out the disparity in the media's wildly speculative coverage of the rape allegations.

Scott says Cosby should be treated like every other beloved American icon who falls from grace.

“I’ve watched – let’s say for instance, Phil Spector. I don’t know if that was a proclivity or a moment of insanity, or whatever it was. But he killed a woman,” she said. “And he was tried and convicted and is serving time and is still in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I’m noticing that Bill Cosby -- or the legacy -- is being pulled apart inch by inch. I’m saying what is fair for some should be fair for all, where if the punishment fits the crime then it should be dealt with for everyone not just some."

She added:

“I’m just saying being a creator or being an artist that is a black man – that is beloved – is one of the most dangerous positions you can ever be in. Respected is one thing, but beloved is dangerous. And more importantly than everything else, they’re just people. Fallible and sometimes f*cked up.”

Despite the rape accusations leveled at Cosby by 45 women, police have no evidence to charge Cosby with anything.

  • DDNY

    i find it commendable that she can admit that she "was wrong". some people stick to their guns no matter how dumb thay look.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    STFU fat ass

  • MisTaken

    Folks ... Leave it lone

  • puppylove

    Bill still hasn't said he RAPED anyone. it's plenyt of chicks tradin azz for drugs with dudes that have far less $$$$ than Pill Cosby. They knew what was up, ESPECIALLY Janice coke head azz. He was paying for their housing and school and they think he wanted NOTHING in return. FOH

  • DDNY

    yea why does she have to keep going on...ITS NOT ABOUT U JILL!

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    WHALE that was harsh, BUT he ain't killed no damn body. UNLESS'n he hid the bodies :eek: *boogity boogity boo music*
    This is America, and he is not guilty in my eyes...
    At least not in a court of law.... IF he broke laws someone should have spoken up SO THAT IT WOULDN'T HAPPEN AGAIN :tea:

  • puppylove

    I know Taken ain't say leave it alone, the way she had me spitting talking about doll baby

  • thrift.store.jungle

    very pretty lady, but jill's energy is always just.... off. she doesn't seem very warm or inviting. even when she's smiling. bill gets dust. what a creepy bozo

  • puppylove

    He ain't guilty. Otherwise this BLACK man would have been UNDER the jail raping 30+ WHITE women.

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    Jill...NOW...DON'T MAKE ME FORGET ABOUT YOU...Bill still has the highest honor which is Presidential Medal of Freedom...SEAT Down...I can't handle ppl who can't google a little before opening their mouth.

  • JustB

    I love her added comments...so true and too deep for some to understand

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    whale that make NO sense but ok.

  • Its Me

    THIS! She acting like Bill was stripped of his accolades; while Phil Spector on the other hand got to keep his. Unless I personally read that wrong. But that was how I interpreted it!

  • mzwhang90210

    Do you really expect any man...ESPECIALLY one with as much to lose as Cosby... admit to rape?
    Slipping something in some one's drink..then having sex with them is the same as lunging on someone in a dark alley and having sex with them. IMO.

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    Leave what alone?...you gots to write it out..Im Slo

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Now after learning something, WHY THAT MAN HAVE TO GO AND KILL THAT DAMN LION?! :facepalm:

  • puppylove

    I don't believe he SLIPPED them anything. He gave them the drug they took it willingly, probably had to to get through the act with him.

  • MisTaken

    Several of the women tell the same story of being (unwittingly and unknowingly) drugged. A few said they "came to" and Bill was putting his clothes back on.

    He was knowingly drugging women to have intercourse w/ them Jill. Whether he was black, white, blue, green or colored w/ sprinkles, he's a PIG. I don't recall Jill defending Darren Sharper's honor?? Which was a shame cause he's such a good looking black man but he's a pig too just a fine one.

    Yea...But you can surely roast their azz...

  • mzwhang90210

    Maybe some (read: very few). I don't believe they all did. I believe (many) others were drugged w/o their knowledge or consent.

  • Its Me

    Did he say stop playing and bring your azz home? Imma buy you a new house honey. Just you wait. Im sorry. I wont cheat no more.

    No he did not. He kept saying that's his son and he loves him. He would rather someone shoot at him than Wayne. He sounds really hurt. He wants that old thang back bad.

    They do have his and her studios right next to each other. They see each other daily. Going into their respective studios. Probably a stop and stare with a slow walk looking over their shoulders to see if the other is watching.

    Aren't there enough white women on the cover of that magazine tearing him down? I think we need to just be quiet. No need to say anything. At this point, it's clear he's guilty.

    They really doing the most trying to get black women aboard the let's lynch Bill Cosby ship.

  • 88

    They willingly took it.

  • 88

    I ain't buying these white women lies if he drugged and raped them they would have reported it to the cops or at the very least sought medical treatment but they want us to believe 0 out of 30+ did neither? Gtfoh

  • SummerBaby

    He sounds like my ex. This dude got a toddler & a baby on the way still talking about we could have it all if we were together. Sir our kids are grown please stop.

  • scentsychick30

    No someone take jilly from philly and get her a publicist,and get her off Twitter ?love her hair?and jumpsuit ?

  • kco0l;s ChocolateBox

    Jill said his legacy is being pulled apart INCH BY INCH!

    Can U read?

  • MisTaken

    Ok I see you

  • mzwhang90210

    Not all rapes are by brute force. Sex with another w/o hat other's consent is rape.
    A woman comes to after being drugged.....knows something is wrong because the man is adjusting his clothes and her panties are down around her ankles...that's rape.
    How can you report that to the police?
    Also...alot of this occurred around Bill's heyday. Who was gonna take some nobody's word over that of Heathcliff Huxtable?
    Love the character blindly if you will...but take off the blinders when viewing the man.

  • Karla Smith

    In Jill's defense, Bill's legacy IS being torn apart little by little...Spelman College just cut their ties with him and his TV shows were pulled indefinitely...the key words here are "little by little" - it's not happening overnight, but over time....pay attention

  • 88

    I'm not a Bill Cosby fan, I've never even watched a full episode of the Cosby show so I have no attachment to him at all.

    I'm looking at this from a non bias perspective. I know a lot of men and women don't report being raped but 0 out of 30+ did nothing? But all of a sudden 30 years later they miraculously remember in fine detail being drugged and raped by Bill Cosby? I'm not buying it boo.

    Maybe I've watched Rosewood too many times but I don't believe these white women Beverly Johnson included.

  • mzwhang90210

    Well, how do we know they did nothing? Maybe the did and were excoriated so badly they just decided to let it drop.
    Many may have been discouraged from speaking out.
    It took several brave ones to come forth for all these others to muster the courage..years later..to step forward too.
    I don't know if they are ALL telling the truth..I just don't believe they are ALL lying. Especially Beverly Johnson, she owns several successful enterprises..this could definitely damage her brand. Why risk it?

  • Its Me

    Wish I could upvote this chit 1k times.

  • Kimberly

    Exactly and went back more than once y go bk if u knew what he was doing half of them lived in the playboy mansion it was their job to fuck Hefner's friends

  • 88

    By their own admission they did nothing....that's why I believe it was consensual sex.

    Ppl lie for different reasons (money, fame, etc) so I can't tell you specifically why Beverly Johnson would lie but she is BFF's with Janice Cokehead Dickinson if that tells you anything.

    I can't convict this man over some "stories" on the news and a sensational deposition released through the lying ass media. I have seen no proof that he did any of the alleged crimes all of this crap is hearsay. Women lie, Men lie but the numbers don't lie and 0 out of 30+ reported nothing. That tells me all I need to know.

  • mzwhang90210

    Is it that difficult for you to fathom that maybe some of them did try to report it, and were told that nobody would believe them. Or they did report it but were not believed?
    Stances like yours are the reason this man was able to get away with it for so long.
    So ALL (each and every woman) is lying? Ask any mathematician about the likely hood of that... and I think those numbers wouldn't lie either.
    What about the women that documented it in their diaries? I suppose they were lying back then too..just incase all these years later it might come up?
    LOL...ok.
    And OJ didn't kill anybody either, gotcha! *wink*

  • 88

    Why don't you contact the police and tell them all that you know since obviously you was in the room when it happened.

  • mzwhang90210

    Just because I don't agree with you, you wanna get all Section 8 on me? LOL...mmmk... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/bad7531fb55b640bdb865f16ea483c6db406423711bac186a2c93207703d90dc.gif

    Pity.

  • Well.well$well

    ? Jill Scott is actually friends with his family. I
    was skeptical at first. I really thought it was about the money. 40 women later and after reading The New yorker article I believe them. I was very surprised to read that two of the women actually did file police reports. One young lady filed a police report 4 days after she claims that he invited her to his house and forced her hands down his pants. Nobody believed her..One lady in the article said she told her manager after it happened and he told her Do you know who he is? Nobody's going to believe you..Either all these ladies are lying a$$ liars or Cosby is a sick fcuk.

  • mzwhang90210

  • Kea31

    Owww! Sounds good! Was this the one in Virginia?? I know Frankie Beverly still jams!
