Jaleel White, who gained fame playing Steve Urkel in the hit ‘90s sitcom Family Matters, appeared on Uncensored Sunday where he opened up about his relationship with disgraced comedian Bill Cosby, and how he looks back at it differently following the accusations against Cosby and his subsequent conviction. Cosby is currently serving up to 10 years in a Pennsylvania prison for drugging and sexually assaulting women.

“You go back in time and you realize how close you were to something, and you put yourself in rooms where you realize, his wife wasn't there. That woman was probably there for that purpose,” White said. “You know, it's a hell of a hindsight thing to look at.”

White, who said that he and Cosby had a falling out, believes that Cosby is now getting the punishment that he deserves.

“It was like, a revered man did a terrible thing and he’s paying the price. It’s just like, I think that’s where we leave it,” White said. “A revered man did a terrible thing and he is paying the appropriate price.”
