Bill Cosby seemingly didn’t care he was found liable in a civil suit accusing him of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl … cheering over the phone when he found out the whole thing was only going to cost him $500,000.
Cosby’s rep Andrew Wyatt tells TMZ he called the 84-year-old directly after the judgment was read — informing Cosby the jury didn’t award any punitive damages — which could’ve cost the disgraced comedian millions.
Wyatt says when he let Cosby know the jury only awarded his accuser, Judy Huth, $500k. Cosby responded, “What? That’s all?” followed up with a “Booyah!”
We’re told Bill was also able to get on the phone with the 2 jurors who had sided with him, thanking both women for being on the right side of equal rights and social justice.
We’re told Cosby plans on filing an appeal … so Huth’s payday is, at the very least, likely to be delayed.
As you know, Cosby was sent to prison in 2018 after being convicted in a separate criminal sexual assault case involving Andrea Constand … he was released fewer than 3 years later when his criminal conviction was overturned by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
