The Cosby Show star has been battling allegations of decades-old sexual abuse from more than 30 women since last year (14), and the situation worsened earlier this month (Jul15) when a sealed deposition from the lawsuit was made public.
In the testimony, Cosby confessed to giving Andrea Constand, who accused him of molesting her, hayfever medication Benadryl and obtaining sedatives called Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to women he wanted to have sex with.
Previous supporters of Cosby, including Whoopi Goldberg and Jill Scott, have since turned their back on the comedian, and now interview footage of the troubled star has been cut from Painted Down, a documentary about black stuntmen.
Producer Nonie Robinson tells Deadline.com, "Cosby is no longer attached to the project... We were the last project standing behind him, but now with Whoopi and (talent agency) CAA pulling the plug, we must also disassociate and cut all ties with Cosby. It's the right thing to do in light of the recent court deposition being made public."
Cosby settled his lawsuit with Constand out of court in 2006. He has maintained his innocence and has never been charged with a sex crime.
Further information from the deposition was exposed on Sunday (19Jul15).
