Bill Cosby And His Wife Camille Cosby
BHR Hollywood Reports.........One of the most prestigious African American colleges in the country Spelman College has dropped Bill Cosby in a stunning way.

The historically black women’s college in Atlanta said that it would end the endowed professorship funded by the comedian and his wife, Camille Cosby.

 The professorship had been suspended since December.

While Spelman’s brief statement did not provide a reason, the college’s decision comes one week after a damning decade-old deposition was published.In the deposition, Cosby acknowledges obtaining drugs to give to women with whom he wanted to have sex with.

Though Cosby maintains that the drug use and sex were consensual, nearly two dozen women have now accused the actor of rape and sexual assault.

“The William and Camille Olivia Hanks Cosby Endowed Professorship at Spelman College has been discontinued,” Spelman said in a statement on Saturday.

The college also announced that they returned “related funds” to the Clara Elizabeth Jackson Carter Foundation, an organization established by Camille Cosby.

The BBC estimates that the “related funds” are worth $20 million, a huge sum for a small liberal arts school.

Cosby was a big supporter of the all women's college over the years and the school acknowledged his contribution by honoring him at various times.

It's the latest in an avalanche of back turns in the wake of the various sexual assault allegations.
