Bill Cosby’s lawyer responds to new rape allegations
Over the last week, shocking allegations have been made against comedian Bill Cosby. As previously reported, former supermodel Janice Dickinson broke her silence just days ago, claiming that Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1982.
Dickinson, who sat down exclusively with “Entertainment Tonight,” admits that it was common knowledge that she struggled with addiction, when Cosby’s manager approached her regarding a role on the now iconic sitcom the “The Cosby Show.”
Dickinson claims that Cosby flew her from Bali to Lake Tahoe, Nevada, to discuss a possible role on “The Cosby Show.” It was at his hotel [where he was performing] that Dickson complained about menstrual pains, that the comedian offered her a glass of red wine and an unidentified pill, to ease her discomfort.
“The next morning I woke up, and I wasn’t wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man,” she tells “ET.”… “Before I woke up in the morning, the last thing I remember was Bill Cosby in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe and getting on top of me. And I remember a lot of pain. The next morning I remember waking up with my pajamas off and there was semen in between my legs.”
Now, Cosby’s lawyer, Marty Singers, has come forward on the comedian’s behalf, claiming that Dickinson’s claims are nothing more than a malicious assault on his character: “Her new story claiming that she had been sexually assaulted is a defamatory fabrication. Neither Mr. Cosby or any of his attorneys were ever told by Harper Collins that Ms. Dickinson had supposedly planned to write that he had sexually assaulted her, and neither Mr. Cosby or any of his representatives ever communication [sic] with the publisher about any alleged rape or sexual assault about the book,” Singers told The Wrap in an official statement.
This is not the first time, however, that Cosby has been accused of rape. Dickinson is now the third woman this week, and one of many to come forward with rape and inappropriate touching allegations against Cosby since 2002.
