Bill Cosby is upset with his insurance company, American International Group, for settling a sexual-battery lawsuit that was filed against him by one of his accusers.
Chloe Goins accused Cosby of drugging and molesting her at a party at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles in 2008 when she was 18.
“AIG continues to act egregiously by settling these heinous claims without my knowledge and/or consent; and AIG continues to show they’re complicit in this scheme to destroy me and my family,” Cosby said in a statement.
“I encourage all of AIG’s policyholders to drop this pathetic insurance company quickly, before they destroy you and your family.”
This is the second time Cosby has lashed out against AIG. Earlier this month, the insurance company settled defamation claims filed against Cosby by seven other women.
"Mr. Cosby did not settle any cases with anyone," his spokesman Andrew Wyatt emailed USA TODAY. "He is not paying anything to anyone, and he is still pursuing his counterclaims. AIG (Cosby's insurance carrier) decided to settle these cases, without the knowledge, permission and/or consent of Mr. Cosby.
"Mr. Cosby vehemently denies the allegations brought against him in these defamation suits and he maintains his innocence," Wyatt said in his statement.
