Raven-Symone has revealed she has yet to spend a penny of her money from The Cosby Show.

The singer and actress, 34, found fame playing Olivia Kendall on the hit US show, which ended 28 years ago.

But although close to three decades have passed since it wrapped, she still hasn’t dipped into her earnings from the series.

The star spilled the beans during an Instagram chat with social media influencer Jerome Trammel. 

Trammel brought up a rumour he had heard about her not spending her Cosby cash, and Raven-Symone replied: “I haven't touched my Cosby money.”

Raven-Symone was just four when she was cast as Olivia in the series, which starred Bill Cosby and focused on a well to do African-American family living in Brooklyn, New York.

The programme ran from 1984 to 1992, airing a total of eight seasons. It was a big hit and was frequently the highest rated show on US TV.

Raven-Symone went on to star in other television series such as Hangin’ With Mr Cooper and Disney shows such as That’s So Raven and Raven’s Home.

Her former cast mate Bill Cosby’s star has fallen since his days on The Cosby Show, after allegations of sexual assault emerged in recent years.

In 2018, a judge sentenced him to three to 10 years in jail for sexual assault.
