Bill Cosby frustrated with wife Camille for not scaling down lifestyle despite 'dire' financial situation
The comedian's ongoing lawsuits are reportedly causing financial difficulties in his household
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: The "dire" financial situation of Bill Cosby and his wife of nearly 60 years, Camille Cosby, is causing disagreements between them and has become a "major issue" in their household.
According to a source, the couple is "in financial turmoil," and 79-year-old Camille isn't ready to alter their lifestyle in order to improve things.
The 86-year-old comedian's ongoing lawsuits are reportedly causing financial difficulties that have become so dire that they have been forced to "liquidate" their assets, take out "second mortgages," and sell off priceless artwork.
But according to the insider, Camille doesn't seem to be aware of their financial problems.
Bill told Camille they 'can't live that lifestyle'
According to sources, Bill told Camille they "can't live that lifestyle" any longer and that's why they haven't been paying their domestic workers in a while.
Camille refuses to go along with his alleged plan to fire some of their staff, claiming she can't bear to live without their chef or staff members, as reported by RadarOnline.
Bill 'frustrated' over the matter
The source said Bill is "frustrated" over the matter, revealing it's become a "major issue" in their home.
Cosbys are reportedly in a 'bad situation financially'
The Cosbys are reportedly in a "bad situation financially" as a result of all the lawsuits the 'Bill Cosby Show' star is involved in, according to reports.
According to the source, Bill, who was formerly estimated to be worth $400 million, is struggling financially as a result of his ongoing legal problems, which are "never going to end."
The comedian's hardship has been widely reported, and it is believed he owes nearly $650,000 for the 2019 and 2020 tax years. The Blast claims that two tax liens, one for $88,566.88 and the other for $559,573.77, were recently placed against Bill.
In 2018, the man who was formerly known as "America's Dad" received a tax lien as well. Since then, Bill has reimbursed Uncle Sam for the $1.8 million in overdue taxes from the filing season of 2015.
Additionally, Bill is liable for the $500k he was ordered to pay Judy Huth last year after a California civil jury discovered the comedian had beaten the sixteen-year-old at the Playboy Mansion in 1975.
The former Hollywood actor, who had sexually assaulted Temple University executive Andrea Constand in 2004, was sentenced to three years in prison in Pennsylvania.
After Bill was released from prison in June 2021 on a technicality and Camille was seen without her wedding ring, the Cosbys were dogged by rumors of marital problems.
Nonetheless, reports said the rumors were unfounded, citing Camille's nearly sixty years of faithful companionship to Bill.
