Jaleel White spoke about his friendship with former mentor Bill Cosby during Sunday’s episode of TV One’s Uncensored.
Jaleel became close with the comedian after he auditioned to play Cosby’s youngest son on The Cosby Show.
“I fostered a relationship with Mr. Cosby, separate and apart,” he revealed. “Many dinners at his house, breakfasts, I even ran into a rough patch, and he’s directly responsible for why I ended up at William Morris Agency, which became an education unto itself.”
He continued: “I actually had a bit of a falling out with Mr. Cosby. I kept that to myself,” he added. “Knocking off these monuments who are still human beings, it’s tough. And you go back in time, and you realize how close you were to something, and you put yourself in rooms where you realize his wife wasn’t there, that woman was probably there for that purpose. You know, it’s a hell of a hindsight thing to look at, and you don’t want anyone to feel like you’re trying to use them for clout. You know what I’m saying? A revered man did terrible things, and he’s paying the price. I think that’s where we leave it: A revered man did a terrible thing, and he is paying the appropriate price.”
He didn’t spill the tea… but it looks like he may in the future.
