Keshia Knight-Pulliam (38) continues her unwavering support for Bill Cosby, during his sexual assault trial. During a recent interview, the former ‘Cosby Show’ star said that the comedian’s,

Spirit hasn’t been broken.


At the end of the day I truly believe you’re innocent until proven guilty, and that’s just not the man that I ever experienced. I just thought about it, how would I want to be treated if God forbid I was in that situation?

Pulliam continued,

It’s easy to be there for someone when things are good, when business is good, when money is good, when all of these things (are good). I just felt like I wanted to do what I would have wanted to receive.

She says that Cosby has remained positive throughout the trial.

My interactions with him, he’s been in good spirits. I was grateful to see his spirit hadn’t been broken as a result of this process because it’s arduous. There’s nothing happy, there’s nothing good about it for either side.

When asked if her opinion of Cosby would change if he is found guilty, she said she’d have to

cross that bridge when I come to it. I’ll be disappointed, however it won’t change the love because when you have family, people falter, people make mistakes, things happen, but in no way is that condoning sexual assault. It’s nothing that I take lightly or that I condone in any way shape or form, but he’s still a person, he’s still a husband, a parent, someone’s son. 

As previously reported, the 79-year-old has been charged with with drugging and molesting Andrea Costand at his home in 2004. She is one of dozens of women who have lodged similar accusations against Cosby in the past two years, allegations that he has denied.
