Cosby’s rep told TMZ that the inspiration for a new speaking tour comes from Cosby’s own experiences in jail, where he heard inspirational stories from other inmates.
As OK! previously reported, Cosby was released from prison last week on Wednesday, June 30, after Pennsylvania’s highest court overturned his sexual assault conviction.
