Bill Cosby recently lost a civil lawsuit where he was accused of assaulting an underage girl in 1975. The victim was sixteen years old at the time. A judge ruled that Cosby must pay $500,000 in damages. The comedy legend is not sweating it.

TMZ spoke with Bill Cosby’s representative, Andrew Wyatt. He said the 84-year-old was just fine with the judgment. In fact, he celebrated the ruling.

“What? That’s all? Booyah!”

After the trial, Bill Cosby spoke to two of the jurors who sided with him. He thanked them for their support. Cosby said it was a social justice issue.

Had Cosby been found liable for punitive damages, he would have had to pay a sum in the millions of dollars. $500,000 seems fairly reasonable compared to that. He will happily pay if his appeal fails.

That appeal is coming soon. The victim will have to wait for that process to play out in court before she can collect her money. It could be quite a while before that happens.
