Beverly Johnson’s camp broke silence after being slammed with a defamation suit from BIll Cosby.

It’s been almost a year since Johnson wrote an essay in Vanity Fair about being drugged by the actor in the 1980s. The backlash was rampant, as black women criticized her for condemning an “innocent” black man and people came forward accusing Johnson of lying, including her talent agent.

Now, the tables have turned as Cosby counters her statements in court.

Johnson released these sentiments to People Magazine

“I am aware of the statements from Bill Cosby. In cases of rape and abuse, abusers will do whatever they can to intimidate and weaken their victims to force them to stop fighting,” she said. “I ask for your support of all of the victims involved. Thank you.”

This case gets more and more convoluted and difficult. We will keep you updated with the latest.
