Bill Cosby has addressed the allegations against him, but made no sense with his answers.

The American comedian has been at the centre of controversy recently, with more than 40 women alleging he sexually assaulted them.

Model Janice Dickinson is one of the females who has come forward with the claims, but when Bill was asked on Good Morning America what he would tell a child who asked about the allegations, he gave an incoherent answer.

"I am prepared to tell this young person the truth about life. I'm not sure that they will come like that. I think that many of them say, 'You're a hypocrite, you say one thing, you say the other.'

"My point is, OK, listen to me carefully. I’m telling you where the road is out. I’m telling you, where, as you’re driving, you’re going to go into water and it looks like it might only be three inches deep. But, you and your car are going to go down. Now, do you want to go here or do you want to be concerned about who’s giving you the message?” he reeled off.

His appearance on the show was to promote the Black Belt Community Foundation, a charity that aims to improve communities.

During his ramblings he added that he'd never seen anyone in the entertainment industry treated the way he had.

"I have been in this business 52 years and I've never seen anything like this. Reality is the situation and I can't speak," he said.

While the scandal continues to swirl, Bill is busy making future career plans. The 77-year-old spoke about how his latest ideas are inspired by love.

“I have a ton of ideas to put on television about people and their love for each other," he revealed.
