After years of staying quiet, Bill Cosby finally speaks out for the first time and confirms that he is completely blind.
In a new interview with NNPA Newswire, the 79-year-old embattled comedian says he’s now blind. Cosby recalls waking up one morning two years ago, and telling his wife, Camille, that, he “can’t see.” Then, doctors told him there was nothing they could so to his eyesight.
While discussing the issues with his eyesight, he did not address the sexual assault charge he was facing. However, Cosby did mention that he was looking forward to the next phase of his careeer. He says:
“I miss it all and I hope that day will come. I have some rountines and storytelling I am working on.
I think about walking out on stage somewhere in the United States of America and sitting down in a chair and giving out the performance that will be the beginning of the next chapter of my career.”
Meanwhile, Cosby youngest daughter, 40-year-old Evin Cosby, passionately defended her dad in an essay published on the NNPA Newswire on Wednesday.
Evin talks about her loving childhood, and says her father has not been treated fairly by the public and the media.
