Keshia Knight Pulliam Explains Why She’s Standing by Bill Cosby…Again: ‘That’s Not the Man I Ever Experienced’ [Video]

Keshia Knight Pulliam is still using Bill Cosby’s trial to maximize her shine and went to voice her support for her TV dad on NBC’s ‘Today’ show.

The actress, who appeared alongside Bill on day one of his trial last week, says that as of now — he’s innocent.

“It was important for me to be there because at the end of the day, I truly believe you’re innocent until proven guilty, and that’s just not the man that I ever experienced,” Knight Pulliam said on NBC’sToday show.

“I just thought about it, how would I want to be treated if God forbid I was in that situation?”

Asked whether her opinion of the 79-year-old would change if he’s found guilty of drugging and molesting victim Andrea Constand in 2004, the actress took a deep breath.

“I’m going to have to just cross that bridge when I come to it. I’ll be disappointed, however, it won’t change the love,” she said. “When you have family, people falter, people make mistakes, things happen — but in no way is that condoning sexual assault.”

She said of the sexual assault allegations, “It’s nothing that I take lightly or that I condone in any way, shape or form, but he’s still a person. He’s still a father, a husband, a parent, someone’s son.”

Keshia also makes note that he’s in ‘good spirits.’ Take a look at her full interview below.
