Bill Cosby's TV son is refusing to side for or against the embattled comedian amid his sexual assault scandal, revealing he finds it difficult to believe the comic raped over 50 women.
Cosby stands accused of drugging and/or sexually assaulting a long list of women over the past few five decades, but The Cosby Show star Malcolm-Jamal Warner is reserving his judgment until his former TV dad is officially found guilty or not guilty.
The 45-year-old actor, who is currently portraying O.J. Simpson's friend Al Cowlings on TV drama The People v O.J. Simpson, tells SiriusXM's Conversations with Maria Menounos, "The media has really helped make it such a big circus, and there are so many things that are thrown into the pot that things get really muddy.
"There are so many levels to what's going on that people are led to believe one thing when it's not as black or white as people think it may be."

Actor Malcolm-jamal Warner Fears The Legacy Of The Cosby Show Has Forever Been Ruined Following The Dozens Of Sexual Abuse Allegations Filed Against Tv Star Bill Cosby.
The comedian is facing decades-old claims of sexual abuse from 50-plus women who have gone public with accusations of inappropriate behaviour or of being drugged and raped in the past year. Many of the accounts cannot be pursued in criminal court due to the statute of limitations, which has long expired. Cosby, whose attorneys maintain their client is innocent, has never been charged of any crime related to the reported encounters, although he settled one civil suit with Andrea Constand in 2006.
Warner, who played Cosby's son, Theo Huxtable, in the family sitcom, has yet to address the allegations directly, simply stating in January (15) it is "just as painful" to watch Cosby face the scandal as it is "to hear any woman talk about sexual assault".
Instead, the actor is preferring to focus on the damage the claims have done to the legacy of the show.
Actor Malcolm-Jamal Warner has spoken out about his former THE COSBY SHOW co-star Bill Cosby, insisting he finds it "painful" to see the embattled comedian at the centre of multiple sexual abuse allegations.
Warner, who played Cosby's son on the hit sitcom, has opened up about the funnyman's high-profile scandal as he stands accused by more than 20 women of sexual abuse and inappropriate behaviour in decades-old incidents.
In an interview with Billboard, Warner admits the entire situation has been difficult for him to watch.

Our protagonist is the restaurant's bartender, Chris Calloway (Adrien Brody - Summer of Sam, Six Ways to Sunday), a struggling playwright weaving his real life problems into his first play -- a work in progress that he can't seem to finish. When he meets the newest waitress Jeanine (Elise Neal - Mission to Mars) and they hit it off, he's faced with his second interracial relationship (the first being Lauryn Hill, who we see mostly as a picture on the refrigerator). Chris can't figure out why he likes black women so much, especially after his Italian father raised him to be a bigot. This dilemma is portrayed in his unfinished play, which is the story of a white man that can't deal with the external pressures of having a black girlfriend, even though he's madly in love. As he tries to make sense of his feelings, he gets caught up in the past when his ex (Hill) shows up at a friend's wedding. Because his relationship with her ended on such a bizarre note, he can't put it behind him, which prevents him from devoting his heart to Jeanine, and finally, thwarts him from finishing the play. Whew!
