Washington, D.C., Jan. 3 (ANI): In the same week that comedian Bill Cosby has been arrested on sexual assault charges, his wife Camille Cosby has learnt that she must testify in a civil case against the 78-year-old entertainer filed by seven women who said he defamed them.
A federal magistrate judge in Massachusetts has rejected arguments by Mrs. Cosby, who not only has been married to the entertainer for almost 52 years but has also been his business manager, the Guardian reported.
The deposition is scheduled for January 6 and will be the first time she has answered questions under oath since scores of women came forward with sexual abuse allegations against her husband.
Cosby is currently free on 1 million US dollars bail, and his lawyer has said that the entertainer is not guilty and will not consider a plea bargain. (ANI)
