Lisa Bonet Breaks Her Silence On Bill Cosby's Rape Scandal And His 'Sinister, Shadow Energy' + Falling In Love With New Husband Jason Momoa

Lisa Bonet is speaking out on the sexual assault allegations against her former co-star, Bill Cosby. The stunning 50-year-old actress revealed she always sensed a "sinister shadow" energy in Cosby. 

Bonet, who worked with Cosby on "The Cosby Show" and "A Different World", opened up about her feelings on the numerous sexual assault allegations against the comedian in an interview with Net-A  Porter's The Edit.

The actress told the publication she always sensed a "darkness" in Cosby. 

Bonet said, "There was no knowledge on my part about [Bill Cosby’s] specific actions, but... There was just energy. And that type of sinister, shadow energy cannot be concealed."

Lisa shot to fame on the 1980s sitcom, "The Cosby Show, where she played the role of Denise Huxtable. 

There were rumors that Cosby and Bonet often clashed on set during the show's eight years on television.

Most fans believed the strained relationship was due to Cosby being protective of Bonet, who stripped down naked for Interview Magazine against her on-screen father's wishes. 

However, Lisa appeared to suggest there was much more to the story. 

Her aura is lit!! #lisabonet 🔥🔥🔥

Lisa opened up about her former co-star's legal problems, as the actor is gearing up for a retrial in a sexual assault case.

Lisa said, "I don’t need to say ‘I told you so’ [about Bill Cosby]. I just leave all that to karma and justice and what will be. And if I had anything more to reveal then it would have happened a long time ago. That’s my nature. The truth will set you free."  

In the interview, the actress also discussed the beginning of her relationship with actor Jason Momoa. 

Bonet met the 38-year-old actor through friends and she fell for him almost immediately.

Bonet said, "I can’t say it was full-on from the moment we saw each other, but we have been together from the day that we met. In that moment, love came and it came big, and he did not run as I think a lot of men do. He basically picked me up and threw me over his shoulder, caveman style!"

The couple have two daughters together - Lola, 10, and Nakoa-Wolf, age nine. The actress is also mom to a 29-year-old daughter named Zoe from her marriage of six years to Lenny Kravitz. 

Bonet gushed over Momoa, telling the publication, "What’s cool about Jason is that he’s an alpha male who stands for love and family. And to circle back to my own wounds, having an absent father, then to be fully met by a man of that stature, is really incredible. 

"Jason embodies a rare form of masculinity in this day and age – he’s a leader, he’s generous. Just in terms of charisma, physique, the right use of power, responsibility, work ethic, you can go down the line."

The star also revealed that not having her father in her life impacted her choices in men.

Bonet explained, "When your primary male figure could care less to show up, that can become a theme in your life where you’re trying to fill this gap with these different men."  

She adds, "So I sheltered myself by always withholding a bit, because I didn’t always feel safe. [If I could go back, I’d] try not to internalize the disdain and hate that was projected onto me."
