As the sexual assault trial is due to begin in the Cosby case, sources close to the comedian state, that he’s paranoid someone will try and harm him. Sources say Cosby refuses to stay at any of the hotels close to the courthouse for fear that someone will try and poison him or break into his hotel room and harm him. So Cosby will make the 300 mile trip back and forth to the courthouse from his Philadelphia home via his private plane.
The Cosby show actor is accused of sexually assaulting former University employee Andrea Constand. Constand alleges the 79-year-old drugged and molested her in 2004.
Mr Cosby says he is innocent and the encounter was consensual.
It is being seen as the biggest US celebrity trial since former American football player OJ Simpson’s murder trial in 1995.
Several of Mr Cosby’s co-stars from the 1984-1992 sitcom The Cosby Show are expected to attend the trial in Norristown outside Philadelphia, along with more than 100 journalists. Broadcasters and photographers are expected to camp outside for the circus, which is set to unfold.
