The Associated Press released a report detailing a confession from Bill Cosby ten years ago. Cosby admitted in 2005, according to court documents obtained by the AP, to purchasing Quaaludes, “with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with.” The news went viral and now one of the comedy legend’s fiercest supporters speaks out.

Jill Scott took to Twitter last night and let it be known to her followers and everyone else watching, she no longer stands by Cosby.

“I stood by a man I respected and loved,” the singer tweeted. “I was wrong.”

“Sadly his own testimony offers PROOF of terrible deeds, which ALL I have ever required to believe the accusations.”

In the heat of Cosby’s sexual assault allegations, Scott was a part of a small chorus of stars who openly defended Cosby, including Cosby’s former TV wife Phylicia Rashad.

Back on December 1, 2014, Scott posted a series of tweets strongly supporting Cosby, and defending the “Cosby Show” actor against other Twitter users who slammed him.

Scott clarified recent news of Cosby’s confession had no bearing on her thoughts about Black men’s image in the media. “I’m not sorry for standing by my mentor. I’m sorry the accusations r true [sic].

Scott is an alumnus of Temple University, where Cosby served on the Board of Trustees for decades. Cosby was recently forced to resign from the school’s top board after the series of allegations hit the news.

Cosby has been under fire for nearly a year since a total of 30 women came forward accusing the comedian of sexual assault and drugging. The Los Angeles Police Department opened a criminal investigation against Cosby after the report from the AP.

No formal arrest has been made and despite previous reports, Cosby continues to deny he ever abused women. No current statement has been made by Cosby or his attorney.
