Desperate to salvage what’s left of his $500 million fortune, Bill Cosby is converting cash into “virtual currency” — so he can keep it away from his creditors, the government and long-suffering wife Camille, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively!
“He moved close to $5 million in Bitcoin after an expert told him it’s practically untraceable and impossible for anyone but him to retrieve,” an insider revealed to Radar.
“The expert said it couldn’t be taken in a divorce, bankruptcy or by the government in any liens!”
As Radar has reported, the convicted sex fiend owes $25 million in unpaid legal bills for his failed criminal defense and has taken out mortgages on his New York and California homes to improve his cash flow.
But a source inside Cosby’s camp revealed the fallen comic has “no intention” of paying his legal fees.
What’s more, his humiliated wife, Camille, 74, is set to walk out on the twisted TV sleaze when he goes to prison — and sources said the pervert knows Camille will fight for every nickel in divorce court.
Cosby’s Bitcoin scheme could also finance a potential escape from justice, according to a fugitive expert.
“To me, it raises a huge red flag,” said Frank Ahearn, author of “How to Disappear.”
“Cryptocurrency has decreased in value, and you’d have to be crazy to buy Bitcoin now. But it’s a great tool if you’re planning an escape.
“He could basically have a middleman in another country receive the money. He’d just need to go there to collect it.”
The sicko was convicted on April 26 of drugging and sexually abusing Andrea Constand in the same Cheltenham, Pa., estate where he’s now confined and wearing an ankle bracelet to track his every move.
The 81-year-old monster — who will be sentenced on Sept. 24 and faces up to 30 years behind bars — is now preparing for the worst by hiring a prison consultant to coach him on life in the big house.
Sources within his inner circle confirmed Cosby locks himself in a makeshift prison cell in his mansion’s third floor attic, eats prison-style meals prepared by his chef and demands his staff scold him if he goes off schedule!
“He moved a bed, a television, a table and a telephone into an old storage space,” an insider revealed. “He comes out of the ‘cell’ six times a day!”
The twisted funnyman has even had his lawyers draw up a proposal to fight his “sexually violent offender” designation, claiming that it would ruin his “reputation.”
“That label is the one thing you don’t want to carry into prison,” noted a prison expert. “Sex criminals are instant targets on the inside.”
