50 Cent Defends Bill Cosby Over New Sexual Assault Lawsuit
50 Cent is defending Bill Cosby over a new sexual assault lawsuit. On Thursday (June 1), the Power creator took to Instagram to respond to the allegations. 50 reacted to a news headline that read: “Former Playboy Model Accuses Bill Cosby Of Drugging And Sexually Assaulting Her in 1969.”
“They are just doing Bill dirty,” he wrote in the caption. “Smh ain’t no way 54 years ago. Lmao this is just f—– up Brody!”
Victoria Valentino, 80, is suing Cosby, 85, for an alleged sexual assault that happened 54 years ago according to The Guardian. Before the alleged assault, Cosby spotted Valentino crying in a Los Angeles café over the drowning death of her six-year-old son.
The former model claims that Cosby offered to pay for a spa treatment for her and a friend. They were then chauffeured to dinner. Valentino claims that Cosby gave them each a pill during the dinner, she said in the court filing.
“Here! Take this!” the lawsuit alleges Cosby said to them. “It will make you feel better. It will make us ALL feel better.”
According to the lawsuit, Cosby drove the women back to his house, were Valentino woke up and witnessed him sexually assaulting her friend, who has not been named. The court documents allege Cosby then “engaged in forced sexual intercourse” with Valentino while she was debilitated from the drug.

In a press release posted online by Valentino’s attorney, the former Playboy model spoke on why she chose to speak on the incident.
“The trauma he inflicted upon me affects not only me, but my children and grandchildren,” she said. “By breaking my silence and speaking my truth, I hope this serves as my legacy to my family, and shows those survivors who have yet to find their voices, that hope and healing are possible.”
This is not the first time 50 has defended Cosby. Back in 2021, when Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned his sexual assault conviction, and he was released from prison, 50 spoke up for him.
“My son Bill beat that case,” he wrote in a post at the time. “These hoe’s be tripping.”
The former Cosby Show star has been accused of rape, sexual assault, and sexual harassment by at least 60 women. He has denied all allegations involving sex crimes.
