She was born on August 27, 1976, in Los Angeles, California. Evin Harrah is the daughter of popular actor Bill Cosby and Camille Olivia Cosby. She is the youngest of the Cosby children and has four more siblings. One being a brother and three sisters.
Bill Cosby’s daughter, Evin owns a luxury boutique and is the inspiration for Rudy Huxtable on The Cosby Show program. Evin started her primary eduacation at Banks Street Elemntary, a private school in New York when she was just 5. She later tranfered to columbia Grammar and Preparatory. Evin attended Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia but later transferred to the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.
She is very passionate about fashion. Evin Harrah Cosby opened PB & Caviar Boutique and co-owner Wai chan, which was located in Tribeca in New York City. The boutique sold children’s and women’s clothing.
A New York Times profile of the store reads, “When on tour with her father Bill Cosby, Evin Cosby fell in love with fashion while hanging out in the dressing rooms of her babysitters, style icons Diana Ross and Tina Turner. As a working mother, Evin Harrah Cosby wanted to create a one-stop shop for fashionable moms, bringing together chic clothing and organic beauty products for them, plus stylish wears for their kids.”
The Lower East Side store closed in 2011 to relocate to Los Angeles. At the time, a statement regarding the store’s closing said, “We will be closing on May 30 and moving to LA in 2011. We are creating an online website and will keep you posted if we will relocate in the city. Thank you so much for shopping with us.”
When her father was accused of rape, sexual assault, and sexual misconduct by more than 50 women, Evin defended Her Father.
“The harsh and hurtful accusations that supposedly happened 40 or 50 years ago, before I was born, in another lifetime, and that have carelessly been repeated as truth without allowing my dad to defend himself and without requiring proof, has punished not just my dad but every one of us,” Evin Harrah Cosby writes.
It’s unclear what led Bill Cosby’s daughter, Evin to write the Facebook post she published on her father’s page Wednesday morning.
In the post, Evin Harrah Cosby says:
“I know that my father loves me, loves my sisters and my mother. He loves and respects women. He is not abusive, violent or a rapist.”
She later added, “Sure, like many celebrities tempted by opportunity, he had his affairs, but that was between him and my mother. They have worked through it and moved on, and I am glad they did for them and for our family.”
In a 2014 interview, Evin Harrah cosby was asked what her father was while she was growing up. She said, “He’s basically what you see, or what you saw on The Cosby Show.”
While defending her father on social media, Evin also voiced her opinion on rape, and posted a comment to Facebook that has since been deleted. “Rape is a serious allegation and it is suppose to be taken VERY seriously but so is Falsely accusing someone. When someone rapes a person they go to prison. THAT should also happen to the person that has wrongfully accused an innocent victim. They are not ONLY destroying innocent people’s life they are ALSO making it hard for the MEN and Women to find justice when they have been raped.”
Pennsylvania’s highest court threw out Bill Cosby’s sexual assault conviction and released him from prison in a stunning reversal of fortune for the comedian once known as “America’s Dad,” ruling that the prosecutor who brought the case was bound by his predecessor’s agreement not to charge Evin Harrah Cosby’s father, Bill Cosby.
Evin Harrah Cosby’s brother, Ennis Cosby, was murdered on January 16, 1997. He was shot in the head near Interstate 405 in Los Angeles in a failed robbery attempt. Ennis was 28 at the time.
An 18-year-old man named Mikhail Markhasev was tried and convicted of Ennis’s murder in July 1998. He was sentenced to life in prison, and maintained his innocence until 2002, when he confessed to the murder and withdrew his appeals.
According to an article published by ABC News at the time, Markhasev’s confession letter included an apology to the Cosby family. He also wrote that he wanted to abandon his appeal “because it was a lie” and he “wanted to do the right thing”. A portion of the note read:
Although my appeal is in its beginning stages, I don’t want to continue with it because it’s based on falsehood and deceit… I am guilty, and I want to do the right thing … More than anything, I want to apologize to the victim’s family. It is my duty as a Christian, and it’s the least I can do, after the great wickedness for which I am responsible.
