Bill Cosby is now killing time as he awaits his September sentencing after being convicted of sexual assault in April, but is his wife killing time with him? Radar cites a source who claims that 74-year-old Camille Cosby has left their Pennsylvania home and moved into a home they own in Shelburne Falls, Mass., taking their chef, other staff, and three grown daughters with her. "They've been fighting and arguing since the verdict," the source says. "She wanted a divorce, but he begged her to stay." Radar notes it sent its own staff to the Mass. town and saw Camille Cosby swimming in her pool and hanging out with female friends. That's news, however, to the Cosbys, the comedian's rep tells People, calling the Radar report a "ridiculous story from an egregious publication."

"The accusations they have made in their tabloid are absolutely false," says Andrew Wyatt. "Mrs. and Mr. Cosby are not getting divorced and she's with him in the Philadelphia home as we speak." He adds, via the New York Daily News: "Mrs. Cosby isn't going anywhere." There's also news on the legal front in Cosby world: Page Six reports the disgraced 80-year-old has fired his entire legal team as he prepares for his Sept. 25 sentencing, with Pennsylvania lawyer Joseph P. Green Jr. stepping in as his new counsel, per his spokesman. "Every single one of them," a source tells Radar. "He's angry. They let him down, and these aren't easy times." From newly pink-slipped celebrity attorney Tom Mesereau, per Page Six: "I wish Mr. Cosby, his family, and his new defense team all the best." (More Bill Cosby stories.)
