Camille Cosby, Bill Cosby’s wife of over 50 years, came out in New York City on Friday sans her wedding ring.
Camille, 77, was photographed out for the first time since Bill’s sexual assault conviction was overturned and he was released from prison on June 30.
She was wearing dark sunglasses and a face mask. Bill, 83, flew straight to New York on July 1 to be reunited with his wife, as previously reported.
According to the Daily Mail, Camille’s reconnection with Bill was like watching “teenage love” reignited before to her ringless glimpse.
Andrew Wyatt, a friend and representative for the Cosby family, told the publication that Camille caressed her husband’s face after their post-prison reunion and whispered “Billy.”
Cosby allegedly answered, “My dear Camille.”
Mr. and Mrs. Cosby had not seen one other since his arrest and imprisonment in 2018.
While Camille’s lack of a ring will undoubtedly fuel rumours that the Cosby marriage is in jeopardy, it’s worth recalling that she stood by Bill’s disgraced side during the sexual assault trial.
Throughout Bill’s trial, the mother of five maintained a strong united front alongside her husband.
She was so adamant about defending Bill’s dignity that she accused a Pennsylvania judge of discriminating against him, accusing her of being a racist.
“Now, after more than 50 years of work that humanised the dehumanised; which also challenged the perpetual architects of racist, exploitive, and greedy manoeuvres that have enabled them to divide and conquer,” she explained, “Judge O’Neill has severely redefined my husband, despite having zero proof.”
