12:45 PM PT — Chloe Goins’ case against Cosby has now been dismissed.
Bill Cosby is lashing out against his insurance company for settling a lawsuit with a model who accused him of sexual battery, and the comedian is pissed that the company settled the case after officials found there was no evidence to support her claims.
Cosby’s spokesperson, Andrew Wyatt, tells The Blast, “Yesterday, our legal team was informed that AIG decided to settle a frivolous lawsuit, which was made by Chloe Goins, over the objections of Mr. Cosby.”
Wyatt continues, “AIG ignored the fact that the Los Angeles District Attorney found that “there is no evidence to support” Ms. Goins’s claims against Mr. Cosby, which stemmed from events that allegedly occurred at the Playboy Mansion in 2008.”
The move by AIG comes days after the insurance company settled defamation lawsuits with 7 different accusers. As we previously reported, Goins was aggressively going after Cosby and even planned to depose him from behind bars.
Cosby, who is still serving up to three years in a Pennsylvania prison, tells The Blast, “It was proven by the Los Angeles Police Department that I was not at the Playboy Mansion on the date in question, and was not in the State of California.” He adds, “AIG continues to act egregiously by settling these heinous claims without my knowledge and/or consent; and AIG continues to show they’re complicit in this scheme to destroy me and my family. I encourage all of AIG’s policyholders to drop this pathetic insurance company quickly, before they destroy you and your family.”
Cosby believes the lawsuit by Goins should have never been filed, and he vows to continue his claims against the model.
