When The Cosby Show was in its prime, Frank Scotti served as NBC and Bill Cosby’s ‘fixer’.
Scotti told the NY Daily News that he did almost anything to protect Bill Cosby at he network’s behest — including paying off women. Scotti alleges that when Bill invited young models into his dressing room that he would even stand outside and guard the door.
“He had everybody fooled,” said Scotti in an exclusive interview with the Daily News. “Nobody suspected.”
Frank Scotti also says that Cosby used him to deliver monthly payouts to eight different women in 1989-90 — including Shawn Thompson, whose daughter Autumn Jackson claimed Bill Cosby was her dad.
Bill Cosby consistently denied paternity, but he payed over $100,000 to Thompson over the years after their affair began in 1974. Scotti fully believes Bill Cosby was sleeping with all of the women who he was paying.
“I was suspicious that something was going on,” said Scotti. “I suspected that he was having sex with them because the other person he was sending money to (Thompson) he was definitely having sex with.
“Why else would he be sending money?” Scotti asked. “He was sending these women $2,000 a month. What else could I think?”
To back up his claims, Frank Scotti saved copies of money orders from the era detailing his payouts to four of the Cosby women. If you look closely, Angela Leslie, who recently came forward and shared her story of Bill Cosby’s sexual assault, has her name is printed on one of the money orders.
“I did a lot of crazy things for him,” recalled Scotti. “He was covering himself by having my name on it. It was a coverup. I realized it later.”
