Another ‘Cosby Show’ Star Is Reportedly Headed For A Messy Divorce
It’s a wrap!

Bad news for another member of the Cosby Show family.

One of the stars of the show is going down “Splitsville Lane” after more than two decades of marriage.

Black Conservative/actor Joseph C. Phillips is about to be a single man after his wife filed for divorce after 23 years. 

The 56-year-old played Lt. Martin Kendall, the husband of Lisa Bonet’s character, Denise Huxtable on the hit TV family sitcom

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Nicole Phillips fired for divorce on July 19th and cited irreconcilable differences reportedly. She further stated in the documents that she’s been estranged from him since November of 2017. 

Married since 1994, Joseph and Nicole Phillips share three sons:  Connor, Ellis, and Samuel. 

Since Samuel is still a minor, Nicole wants joint custody of him as she’s also asking the court to prevent her now estranged husband from being awarded spousal support. There's THAT trend too.

Joseph’s most recently appeared in the hit Netflix original series 13 Reasons Why, where he played the father of Alisha Boe's character.

The divorce filing follows the reported split of the Cosby Show Patriarch, Bill Cosby.  

New reports state that Camille Cosby is finally done with the TV icon after 54 years of marriage.

Radar Online says the 74-year-old has left the duo’s Pennsylvania mansion, leaving the disgraced comedian "pleading with her to return."

"He literally is home alone," an insider explained. "She even took the staff with her!"

The site specified that she settled herself into the couple's Massachusetts hideaway with their chef, multiple drivers and a house manager; she supposedly had some family support as their three grown kids joined her. They have not visited their 80-year-old father, Bill, in months, it seems.

This all comes a couple months after Bill was convicted of a heinous act against Andrea Constand (there are many other alleged victims too) in the very Cheltenham, Pennsylvania, estate that Camille fled. The ex-TV dad is confined to the space and is reduced to wearing an ankle bracelet to track his whereabouts.

Insiders also Radar Online that Camille has sold her husband's private jet, and has her eyes set on selling his vintage car collection, as well as their real estate holdings in the state of California, to help pay for expensive legal bills.

According to Radar Online, Mrs. Cosby now reportedly resides, alone, in the secluded town of Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, in life of extreme comfort.
