Beverly Johnson's Ex Husband Sues CNN For Defaming Him
|Beverly Johnson's Ex Husband Sues CNN For Defaming Him|
As you may recall, Johnson was called on by CNN to discuss the accusations she revealed in a Vanity Fair piece back in December.
In order to balance the story, Cosby's lawyer Martin Singer asked the network to speak with Johnson's ex-boyfriend Mark Burk
who lived with the model for four years and never once heard of the drugging allegation. He claims Johnson had nothing but positive sentiments toward the 77-year-old comedian.
Burk is suing the network for $19 million for allegedly giving the letter to TMZ for publishing. He believes the story attacked his credibility and damaged his reputation.
"CNN is not a tabloid periodical 'picking on the little guy.' CNN is a giant that has absolutely ruined the reputation of one man," reads the lawsuit.
The network has yet to respond to the lawsuit.
