Bill Cosby allegedly fired Lisa Bonet from the 1990s "Cosby Show" spinoff, A Different World -- after she told him she was pregnant.

The allegations were made by Lisa's ex-husband Lenny Kravitz who spilled the beans in his newly released memoir, Let Love Rule. 

According to Kravitz, Cosby knew what was going on when Lisa and the show's producer Debbie Allen called a meeting.

"You're here to tell me you're pregnant, aren't you?" Cosby allegedly asked.

The producer then said she was in favor of Lisa's character, deciding to raise a child on her own with her friends' support. But Cosby wasn't biting.

"Lisa Bonet is pregnant," he said, "but Denise Huxtable is not."

He did allow Lisa to return to The Cosby Show, "But from then on, her relationship with Bill was tense and ultimately untenable," Kravitz writes.

Cosby is yet to respond to Kravitz's claims.
