She Has Alleged That The Comedian Drugged And Raped Her In 1982
Los Angeles : Another woman has accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault. Supermodel Janice Dickinson claimed that the comedian raped her in 1982. According to Dickinson, the alleged action took place after she met Cosby, now 77, for an acting role on ‘The Cosby Show’, reported Ace Showbiz. After the meeting, Cosby allegedly contacted her while she was in rehab. After she was released, he contacted her again when she was in Bali.
Dickinson reveals that Cosby invited her to dinner to discuss a role on The Cosby Show, offering her a glass of wine and a pill she thought was for her cramps, according to a report in The Daily Mail.
“The next morning I woke up, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man,” she said.
Dickinson additionally said she was going to mention it in her 2002’s autobiography ‘No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World’s First Supermodel’ but Cosby’s camp pressured her and her publisher not to do it.
