Bill Cosby Deposition Changes Jill Scott's Mind: 'I Was Wrong'
"I stood by a man I respected and loved," the R&B singer tweets after the 2005 deposition goes public.
On Monday (July 6), reports came out that Cosby admitted under oath in 2005 that he gave women drugs with the intention of having sex with them. Now, Scott's tweets have a new message. She wrote that she is "required" to believe all accusations against Cosby because his testimony proves them true.
Scott went on to say she didn't want to jump on the media bandwagon without proof, despite public opinion.
Scott admitted she was wrong in standing by Cosby.
The R&B singer originally supported the comedian on Twitter after a follower asker her to sign a petition for Temple University to sever all ties with Cosby. She responded right away:
Cosby, a nine-time Grammy winner, has charted five entries on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, including a top 10 hit with the No. 4-peaking "Little Ole Man (Uptight-Everything's Alright)" in 1967.
