Bill Cosby paid $3.4 million to the accuser Andrea Constand, a Pennsylvania district attorney reported on April 9, 2018. The earlier Cosby’s camp has kept the settlement secret but the new defense team revealed the payment planning to argue that the accuser claims are for financial gain.

The payment was part of a confidential settlement between Cosby & Constand, an ex-basketball player who accuse the actor of first befriending her, then incapacitating her with drugs and molesting her in 2004.

While Constand filed the charges of drugging with blue pills and molesting her she was Temple University women’s basketball team manager and the comedian was a high-profile university trustee. But, the entertainer claimed that it was consensual and denied any wrongdoing with Constand.

According to a source, a defense witness who is a Temple University academic advisor is assumed to be testifying that Constand once told she could make money easily if she makes a false molesting claim by a popular person.  

Cosby’s entry in the courthouse was slightly delayed when a topless woman identified as Nicolle Rochelle jumped in the way of the actor.
