50 Cent has defended Bill Cosby after the actor/comedian was hit with a new sexual assault lawsuit.
The Hip Hop mogul took to Instagram on Thursday (June 1) to react to a news headline that read: “Former Playboy Model Accuses Bill Cosby Of Drugging And Sexually Assaulting Her in 1969.”
In his post, 50 Cent claimed that people making accusations against Cosby from over half a century ago are “doing him dirty” and this particular lawsuit is “fucked up.”
“They are just doing Bill dirty,” he wrote in the caption. “smh ain’t no way 54 years ago. Lmao this is just fvcked up Brody !”
In her suit, 80-year-old former actress and Playboy model Victoria Valentino alleges Bill Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her and another woman at his home in 1969.
According to The Guardian, she sued him on Thursday under a new California law that suspends the statute of limitations on sex abuse claims.
Valentino claims Cosby approached her at a Los Angeles café where he spotted her crying over the death of her six-year-old son, who had drowned.
She says Cosby offered to pay for spa treatment for her and a friend and sent a chauffeured car to pick them up for dinner, before giving them both a pill at a steakhouse then driving them back to his house.
Valentino claims she passed out on a couch and woke up to witness Cosby sexually assaulting her friend, with the actor then “engaging in forced sexual intercourse” with Valentino while she was incapacitated from the drug.
Last year, Cosby faced accusations by six people in New York under a similar provision known as a “lookback” law that allows adults to file sexual abuse cases for allegations that had fallen outside the statute of limitations.
50 Cent previously defended Bill Cosby in 2021 when the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned his sexual assault conviction and he was released from prison.
“My son Bill beat that case,” he wrote in a post at the time. “These hoe’s be tripping.”
