Mr. Phillips said it was a chance meeting with Mr. Cosby's former female mentee, who admitted that Mr. Cosby had violated "her body and her trust," that changed his perspective.
"I battled my emotions. I felt for my friend, for the violation of her trust, loyalty and body. I was angry with Bill," Mr. Phillips wrote. "He had money, fame and power; he was a walking aphrodisiac! Why? I was also angry at myself for falling for the okey-doke, of putting Bill on a pedestal."
