Zoë Kravitz Reveals How Her Mom Lisa Bonet Reacted To Cosby Allegations
Fans of "The Cosby Show" have been curious what the former stars think about the drug and rape allegations against Bill Cosby. 

Lisa Bonet's daughter, Zoe Kravitz, has revealed her mother was "bummed" to hear the news, but not "incredibly surprised".

Zoe, Lisa's 28-year-old daughter with rocker Lenny Kravitz, told Allure magazine that her mother was upset hearing about the accusations against her former co-star.

Bonet, who played Denise Huxtable on "The Cosby Show" from 1984 until 1991, has remained quiet on the scandal.

Her daughter Zoe, who covers Allure's newest edition, told the publication, "I think she didn't like hearing that. It bummed her out. Though she didn't seem incredibly surprised about it. I don't think she wants to hear about anyone being abused, especially by someone she spent so much time with. It feels [expletive]. You want to shower."

Back in  2015, Kravitz spoke to The Guardian that Bonet, 49, was "just staying out" of the scandal. "She’s just as disgusted and concerned as everyone else is, but I don’t think she has any insight," Zoe said in the interview. "It’s news to her as well."

Zoe understood why the public was interested in hearing her mother's reaction. The model said, "She was on the show for a long time. She’s also a beautiful woman. It makes people wonder."

She adds that her mother would have spoken out "'if there was something she felt the world needed to know that would help this case or help any women who had been abused."

Bill Cosby recently spoke on the sex assault case against him, addressing whether he thought the accusations were "racially-driven" like his daughter Esna had suggested. 

Cosby said in a Sirius XM interview on Monday, "I can't say anything, but there are certain things that I look at, and I apply to the situation, and there are so many tentacles. So many different — nefarious is a great word. And I just truly believe that some of it may very well be that."

Cosby goes on trial next month in Philadelphia for the 2004 incident in which a Temple University worker named Andrea Constand said he drugged and sexually assaulted her. He has pleaded not guilty to the accusations. Jury selection commences May 22 and the trial reportedly begins on June 5.
