Bill Cosby has gone off the rails amid firing his legal team, a source exclusively told RadarOnline.com.

Radar broke the news that the disgraced funnyman fired his entire legal team one day after he was dumped by his wife, Camille, of 54 years. Now, a source told Radar that Cosby is exhibiting irrational behavior.

“Cosby fired them out of ignorance and anger,” a source close to Cosby told Radar.

Cosby, 80, was found guilty of three counts of aggravated incdecent sexual assault against Andrea Constand on April 26. He faces up to ten years in prison for each of the three offenses.

The comedian was represented by a team led by former Michael Jackson attorney Tom Mesereau and former California prosecutor Kathleen Bliss.

The source revealed Cosby grew angry at his team for not filing an appeal immediately.

“He wanted the lawyers to file appeal now, but Pennsylvania law prohibits that until sentencing,” said the source.

The source continued: “He was also upset when they told him they couldn’t guarantee he’d be allowed to remain free during the appeal.”

According to the insider, Cosby also accused his team of ruining his chances in the case based on the jurors alleged proximity to the judge.

“Cosby snapped and accused them of blowing the case by using local jurors, including the neighbor of the court reporter and someone acquainted with the judge.”

Cosby also blamed his team for failing to establish a cordial relationship with an African American juror.

“He accused them of not connecting with the black male juror and allowing one juror to stay on after he had said Cosby was guilty even before the trial,” the source continued.

The former funnyman believes his lawyers “could have done something to cause another mistrial,” said the source.

Despite the legal shakeup, Cosby is already represented by a new lawyer named Joseph P. Green Jr.

Cosby remains on house arrest and is expected to be sentenced in September.
