Cosby Show alum Lisa Bonet has been pretty quiet regarding her longtime co-star Bill Cosby’s many rape and sexual assault allegations. In a new interview with ‘The Guardian’, her daughter Zoë Kravitz reveals that Lisa hasn’t even spoken to HER about it — but is, in fact, disgusted by Bill’s actions.

When Zoë was born, Bonet was still a regular on The Cosby Show. She played Denise Huxtable, daughter of Dr Cliff Huxtable, played by Bill Cosby. Cosby has since been accused by more than 40 women of sexual assault and harassment, with some alleging that the actor drugged and raped them. The comedian has said that any extramarital affairs were consensual. He is facing a criminal investigation by the LAPD, but has not been charged.
Bonet and Cosby had a testy relationship during the show’s run. Cosby apparently disapproved of Bonet’s relationship with Kravitz, her pregnancy (with Zoë) and her appearance in Angel Heart, a horror film in which Bonet romped around naked and bloody in a nightmarish sex scene with Mickey Rourke.
I ask Zoë if her mother had talked to her about the allegations. “She hasn’t, she really hasn’t,” she says. “She’d plead the fifth, even to me. I think she’s just staying out of it. She’s just as disgusted and concerned as everyone else is, but I don’t think she has any insight. It’s news to her as well.”
But you understand why people would think she knows something?
“Of course,” she says. “She was on the show for a long time. She’s also a beautiful woman. It makes people wonder. She’s a very straightforward person. If there was something she felt the world needed to know that would help this case or help any women who had been abused, she would say something.”
