An ex-boyfriend of Bill Cosby accuser Beverly Johnson
is suing CNN for allegedly defaming him by talking crap
about him to TMZ.Johnson was contacted by CNN for
a special that focused on her accusations. TMZ broke
the story … Cosby’s lawyer urged the network to
interview Mark Burk because he lived with Johnson for
4 years, and would say she only had praise for the
comedian and never mentioned drugging allegations.
We contacted CNN before the show aired, and ended
up with a letter the network sent to Cosby’s lawyer
saying Burk was a criminal with an ax to grind and
lived with Johnson long after she was allegedly
drugged. As a result they said he was not included in
the special.Burk is now suing CNN … claiming the
network gave TMZ the letter it sent to Cosby’s lawyer,
attacking his credibility and as a result his reputation
has been damaged.In the lawsuit Burk says, “CNN is
not a tabloid periodical ‘picking on the little guy.’ CNN
is a giant that has absolutely ruined the reputation of
one man.”Burk is suing for $19 million.We contacted
CNN … so far no word back.
