Camille Cosby issued a statement late Monday concerning her husband Bill Cosby’s multiple rape allegations, and compared her husband’s situation to Rolling Stone’s recently published story about a gang rape on the campus of the University of Virginia, which had multiple discrepancies.

In the statement, which CBS News tweeted out, Camille talks about the time the first two met, and said “a different man has been portrayed in the media over the last two months.”

The wife of the 77-year-old comedian also compared it the UVA story.

“We all followed the story of the article in the “Rolling Stone” concerning allegations of rape at the University of Virginia. The story was heart-breaking, but ultimately appears to be proved to be untrue. Many in the media were quick to link that story to stories about my husband–until that story unwound.”

Bill Cosby briefly addressed the allegations as well, because “they don’t want me talking to the media.” (RELATED: Histories Of Several Cosby Accusers Cast Doubt)

“I only expect our black media to uphold the standards of excellent journalism. And when you do that, you go in with a neutral mind,” Cosby said.

Cosby has never been charged with a crime regarding sexual assault. Over 25 women have recently accused him of raping and/or drugging them. (RELATED: Supermodel Beverley Johnson Is The Latest To Accuse Cosby Of Drugging Her)
