Life keeps getting worse for Bill Cosby!
After he was dumped by Camille, his wife of 54 years, Spiel News..com can exclusively report that the disgraced funnyman has fired his entire legal team.
“Every single one of them,” a source inside the Cosby camp told Radar on Thursday, June 14. “He’s angry. They let him down, and these aren’t easy times.”
Cosby was represented by a team led by former Michael Jackson attorney Tom Mesereau and former California prosecutor Kathleen Bliss.
But the star power didn’t prevent a jury from convicting the shamed star of sexual assault in April.
At 80 years old, Cosby is facing up to 30 years behind bars when he’s sentenced in September.
The source said Cosby is hoping to buy a little more time on house arrest with the firings.
“It could be the judge puts off sentencing until he can find adequate counsel,” the source explained.
However, the source acknowledged that the firing also could have unexpected and immediate consequences:
“The judge could order him remanded because he no longer has counsel, which could make him a flight risk.”
As Radar exclusively reported, Camille Cosby fled the couple’s Pennsylvania home, claiming she was fed up with the comedian and his conviction.
Now desperate, alone and angry, Cosby has lashed out against his attorneys, who had been gathering information they thought were helpful to his appeals.
“He can’t find anyone else willing to defend him, and besides the money is gone and he can’t pay anyone,” the source said.
