Highlights from the interview are below:
Taking a Lie Detector Test:
Johnny Gill: It wasn’t about the people I wanted to prove it to. I was dating my ex and I remember her coming back to me one day “I’m hearing all this stuff about you and Eddie [Murphy]…” and I was like “do you believe this” and she goes, “no.” So my thing was I’m not laying in bed next to a woman that I’m supposed to be married to and worried about are you sitting here and having any doubts. For her, I wanted to make sure there was no question. I wrote down questions for her like “ask anything you want.” I wrote down questions as well. We laid it all that and she laid there when we got the results back and said, “I never doubted you.” I sat her down and said, “people talk.”
On Bill Cosby’s Situation vs. His:
Johnny Gill: Bill Cosby going through people going through. It’s a number of people coming out. All that stuff, rumors about me. Show me one or a string of people coming out. That’s bull and if they do. I’ll whip their you know what.
If There Was A Strain on His Relationship With Eddie:
Johnny Gill: Never. I’ve offered many times. Anybody that felt or you think I’m that way, I’m approachable and if I walk away on two feet, I’ll be whatever you want me to be.
