Washington: Bill Cosby has reportedly hired private investigators in order to dig up dirt on his alleged rape victims and discredit them.
The American comedian, who has been fighting an onslaught of accusations that he sexually assaulted more than two dozen women over many years, had paid six-figure fees to investigators to find information, the Fox News reported.
Sources confirmed that Cosby, through his Hollywood attorney Martin Singer, was implementing a scorched-earth strategy in which anything negative in his accusers' pasts was fair game.
Cosby told his legal and public-relations team recently that the world needs to know what kind of people the accusers are who are raising the fingers against the 77-year-old star, sources further added.
It was also confirmed the alleged legal strategy noting that it has already worked to some degree.
