Evin Harrah Cosby is the celebrity daughter of renowned American comedian, producer, and TV star Bill Cosby. She is the owner of a high-end boutique and also the creator of The Cosby Show’s Rudy Huxtable.
Evin prefers to live a private life away from the spotlight. So, very less is known about her personal life. However, we’ve covered everything you need to know about Bill Cosby’s youngest child, Evin Harrah Cosby.
Evin, born in 1976, is one of five children born to Bill Cosby and his wife of 56 years, Camille Cosby. She grew up with four siblings – Erika, Erinn, Ennis, and Ensa.
Evin’s sister, Erika, is a painter and former professor of Art at New York University. Her other sister, Erinn, is also artistic and is known for her photography.
Soon after graduating from FIT, Evin started her own boutique store called “PB & Caviar” in New York City. She launched her store on August 7, 2008, in Tribeca, a neighborhood in Lower Manhattan in New York City.
Evin fell in love with fashion while on tour with her father Bill Cosby, hanging out in the dressing rooms of Diana Ross and Tina Turner. She wanted to create a one-stop store for stylish mothers, bringing together elegant apparel and organic beauty products for them, as well as trendy wear for their children.
Evin closed her Lowest East Side store in 2011 to relocate to Los Angeles.
Evin first attended Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia. But later, she transferred to The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.
Evin was interviewed by Guest of a Guest in 2012 on fashion, career, and personal style. When asked what brought her to the world of fashion, she replied:
I was always in to fashion. I can remember starting at age 6. I was just like always trying to look like Madonna or something like that. Then it just grew. When I went to college, I went to Spelman in Atlanta for two years. I was never really interested in any of their majors. I decided to go to FIT and that’s where I stayed. I just love fashion.
Ennis Cosby, Evin Harrah Cosby’s brother, was murdered on January 16, 1997. In a botched robbery attempt near Interstate 405 in Los Angeles, he was shot in the head. At the time, Ennis was 28 years old.
Mikhail Markhasev, an 18-year-old male, was prosecuted and convicted of Ennis’ murder in July 1998. He was given a life sentence and maintained his innocence until 2002 when he confessed to the crime and dropped his appeals.
Evin’s older sister, Ensa, was born on April 8, 1973. She suffered from a kidney problem for a very long time. Unfortunately, the renal or kidney disease took her life in February 2018; she was 44 years old then.
As a sister, losing two of her siblings was very hard to deal with for Evin. Out of four, only two of her siblings are alive now.
Evin’s father, Bill Cosby, has been accused of sexual assault and rape by more than 50 women. In April 2017, Evin defended her father and criticized the media for his “public persecution” through a Facebook post.
In the post, she wrote:
“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.”
Once known as “America’s Dad,” Evin’s father, Bill Cosby, has accumulated a staggering net worth throughout his career as a stand-up comedian, actor, and author. Though Cosby reportedly spent millions of dollars on various legal defenses, he has an eye-popping net worth of $400 million according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Evin is currently 45 years old. She celebrates her birthday on 27 August.
As Evin’s birthday falls on August 27, her astrological sign is Virgo. Virgos are believed to be practical, logical, and systematic in their approach to life, and Evin has likely these traits.
It is no secret that Evin has maintained a low-key profile, and she has rarely talked about her personal life. It’s unknown whether she is a married woman or a single person. There have been no reports about her wedding and the whereabouts of her husband if she has one.
