Bill Cosby

On the red carpet for Ebony magazine’s Power 100 Gala, HipHollywood asked Bishop T.D. Jakes about the rape accusations that have been swirling around Bill Cosby of late.

Jakes said, “They are serious allegations and troubling allegations, but they are allegations and we really don’t know what happened.” The pastor of the Potter’s House in Dallas, TX, who has written numerous bestsellers and also produced movies, added, “What we do know is that Bill Cosby has been a trailblazer for our community; he’s done a lot of awesome things. I would hope they’re not true.”
