Bill Cosby hires sleuths?

Los Angeles, Dec 29 (IANS) Comedian Bill Cosby has allegedly been paying private investigators six-figure fees to ferret out information that might discredit his alleged victims — more than two dozen women who came forward to accuse him of rape.

A source said that Cosby has hired a Glendale, California, firm to discredit his many alleged victims’ stories, reports
Cosby allegedly spoke with his legal and public relations teams about the sex scandal, and his response to it at a recent meeting.
“If you’re going to say to the world that I did this to you, then the world needs to know, what kind of person are you? Who is this person that’s saying it?” Cosby said, according to an anonymous source who was present at the meeting.

“You can’t say that I put something in your coffee, threw you in a cab and then you go on and live a high profile life, a famous life and you never complain. You mean you never reported it to the police? You never tell anyone?” Cosby continued, referring to one of his accusers, Beverly Johnson.
Johnson claimed that Cosby raped her after slipping a drug into her coffee during a visit to his home in the 1980s.
Another source who says they have worked with Cosby for at least a decade confirmed the tactic and said it has already been successful in finding information to discredit both Johnson and another alleged victim, Katherine McKee.
The team discovered that Johnson’s live-in boyfriend at the time only heard her say nice things about Cosby and that McKee, an ex-girlfriend of Sammy Davis Jr, wrote posts praising the comedian online after the alleged rape.
