His wife of more than 50 years was reportedly “out of state” as the stunning ruling was announced and Cosby spent his first night of freedom without his wife in their Pennsylvania mansion.
It is unclear why she did not return home to meet him on his release after being vocal in her dismissal of the accusations leveled against him and claiming “we all know how women lie.”
The TV star is set to travel to meet her today, a rep said, but did not clarify where.
The couple has homes in New York City, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and California, according to DailyMail.com.

“He is going to go see Mrs. Cosby. He got up early, he had a shower. He’s having his breakfast sitting at the table right now,” Cosby’s long-time spokesperson Andrew Wyatt said in a briefing outside of his home early on Thursday morning.
Wyatt claimed it hadn’t been “worked out” if Cosby would be driven to meet with Camille or if he would have to fly.
Cosby was joined by his lawyers and representatives at home on Wednesday night as they insisted he will work again.
As Wyatt emerged to speak to the media again on Thursday, he claimed that Cosby is in contracts with “documentary people” and may not be speaking to the press himself as a result, DailyMail.com reports.
“Trust me. This guy wants to talk,” Wyatt said.
He did not clarify with whom Cosby is in contracts.

“He’s Bill Cosby. He is one of the greatest of the world. There’s always going to be a different narrative,” Wyatt added.
“You don’t have one million followers and counting if you don’t have support.”
Cosby, who is blind, reportedly had to “relearn” how to move around his home.
He welcomed his old chef from New York City back to the mansion to cook him “hard scrambled eggs, sausages, and potatoes.”
Camille has not yet publicly commented on her husband’s release.
She married Cosby in 1964 and the couple has five children together. Camille also acted as his manager during Cosby’s career.
Cosby was one of the first major names accused in the #MeToo movement but his wife said last June that she “didn’t care” and believed the movement needed to “clean up its act.”
She had also compared her husband to Emmet Till, a 14-year-old black boy who was lynched after a white woman falsely accused him of sexual harassment in 1955.

Till posthumously became an icon of the civil rights movement after the killers were acquitted.
“The parallel is that the same age-old thing about particular white women making accusations against black men that are unproven,” Camille said.
“The #MeToo movement and movements like them have intentional ignorance pertaining to the history of particular white women – not all white women – but particular white women, who have from the very beginning, pertaining to the enslavement of African people, accused black males of sexual assault without any proof whatsoever.
“And by ignoring that history, they have put out a lie in itself and that is: ‘Because I’m female, I’m telling the truth.’ Well, history disproves that, as well, and gender has never, ever equated with truth.”
Cosby’s release was met with mixed reactions, with fans who have proclaimed his innocence celebrating the return of the fallen icon.
His former TV wife Phylicia Rasha welcomed the decision stating that a “terrible wrong has been righted.”
Yet his accusers slammed his release and warned that it could stop sex assault victims from speaking out.

Andrea Constand told TMZ the court’s decision is concerning because “it may discourage those who seek justice for sexual assault in the criminal justice system from reporting or participating in the prosecution of the assailant or may force a victim to choose between filing either a criminal or civil action.”
She had previously testified in court that 83-year-old Cosby had given her three blue pills and then sexually assaulted her.
Three other women who have accused Cosby – Sammie Mays, Sarita Butterfield and Angela Leslie – also spoke out about the comedian’s release on Wednesday, saying that they, too, think he’s dangerous.
Former Playboy Bunny Victoria Valentino – who accused Cosby of drugging and raping her in 1970, when she was 24 – told ABC: “My stomach is lurching and I am deeply distressed, he’s a sociopath, he’s a serial rapist.”
The tensions between those celebrating and protesting Cosby’s release erupted outside of his Pennsylvania home on Wednesday.
His supporters, carrying “Bill Cosby is innocent” and “Don’t mess with Bill” signs, clashed with an anti-rape campaigner.
The female protester chanted “change the law” and “this is about rape” through a megaphone.

A male supporter argued with her telling the woman to “go home.”
Cosby served three years of a three-to-10-year sentence at a state prison near Philadelphia before his sexual assault conviction was overturned by Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court in a stunning reversal on Wednesday.
Moments after returning home, the comedian maintained his innocence as he said: “I never changed my stance nor my story.”
