Camille Cosby Responds to Husband's Rape Allegations

Bill Cosby has kept quiet as sexual assault allegations mounted against him, but on Monday, his wife, Camille, finally spoke out in defense of her husband.

"He is a kind man, a generous man, a funny man," Mrs. Cosby said in a statement first reported by the CBS Evening News. "A different man has been portrayed in the media over the last two months. It is the portrait of a man I do not know."

In her statement, Mrs. Cosby mentions Rolling Stone'sreexamined story of rape at the University of Virginiaand compares her husband's current crisis to the one going on at Rolling Stone.

"The story was heart-breaking, but ultimately appears to be proved to be untrue," Mrs. Cosby said, referring to the magazine's story. "Many in the media were quick to link that story to stories about my husband - until that story unwound."
