Supermodel Janice Dickinson appeared upset as she left a gym in the wake of Bill Cosby’s release from prison – as her attorney told of the star’s ‘disgust’ at his release.
Dickinson, 66, one of Cosby’s accusers, was seen in exclusive DailyMail.com photos wearing a lightweight purple shirt and teal leggings with a pair of sunglasses and her hair in tight braids while out in Los Angeles.
She donned a curt, frustrated expression and pursed her lips as she went between looking down, checking her phone and shielding her eyes from the sun.
Janice was also snapped on Wednesday leaving her house to get in a limousine with her husband Robert Gerner.
Dickinson wore the same sunglasses, but with her hair is down, and sported black pants and a black sports jacket with a white undershirt. She clutched a royal blue handbag as she walked and looked down while appearing jaded.
The star’s attorney Lisa Bloom shared her horror that Cosby was freed, on behalf of Dickinson and two other alleged victims she represents.
Bloom said: ‘The 3 Bill Cosby accusers I represent and I are disgusted that he is a free man today. He is not released because he is innocent.
‘He is released because a prosecutor promised him years ago that he would not be brought to justice, without even making a deal for him to do time.

Cosby was freed after a Pennsylvania prosecutor ignored a predecessor’s written promise not to bring criminal charges over Andrea Constrand’s allegations if he agreed to provide a deposition for her civil case against him
The court said former prosecutor Bruce Castor’s promise to Cosby should have stood.
Dickinson testified in Cosby’s 2018 trial that he assaulted her in 1982 in Lake Tahoe. She was 27 at the time.
‘His robe opened…he smelled like cigar and espresso and his body odor. Here was America’s Dad on top of me. A happily married man with five children, on top of me.’
Bill Cosby on Wednesday evening thanked the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for their shock decision to free him, only three years into his 10-year sentence for sexual assault.
Cosby, 83, flashed a peace sign to news crews on Wednesday as he arrived home after being released from prison in Pennsylvania, hours after the court overturned his sexual assault conviction.
He was convicted in 2018 of sexually assaulting and drugging Andrea Constand at his Pennsylvania estate in 2004.
She was a 19 year-old masseuse at the time.
Dozens of other women accused him of sexual assault, but only Constrand’s claims were prosecuted, because the others fell outside the statute of limitations.
Those alleged victims included Chelan Lasha, Janice Baker Kinney, Janice Dickinson, Lise-Lotte Lublin and Heidi Thomas.
Cosby was freed because former promised him that he wouldn’t be charged over attacking Constand if he agreed to sit for interviews under oath as part of a civil case she filed against him.
Castor had decided Constrand did not have a sufficiently compelling case to prosecute, but wanted to help her with a civil suit.
The TV star agreed. But when Castor departed his role, his successor Kevin Steele used those depositions to mount a criminal case against Cosby.
Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court ruled that Cosby’s subsequent conviction was unsafe, because it broke Castor’s written agreement not to bring criminal charges in return for the civil case evidence.
