Bill Cosby admitted to giving teen girls drugs and alcohol before having sex with them, according to new court documents. To make matters even more questionable, he says the girls were sent to him weekly from a modeling agency.

The comic said that in around 2000, the agency would provide “five or six” young women each week, according to depositions he gave in 2005 and 2006 for a lawsuit.
Under questioning by lawyers for Andrea Constand, who claims Cosby sexually assaulted her in 2004, he described a 1976 encounter with a 19-year-old model named Therese Picking.
He said he gave Quaaludes to Picking, now called Therese Serignese.
“She became, in those days, what was called high,” Cosby said.
Constand’s lawyer asked whether Serignese gave consent for sex.
“I don’t know. How many years are we talking about? 197?” he said. “I meet Ms. Picking in Las Vegas. She meets me backstage. I give her Quaaludes. We then have sex.”
Cosby said he paid off Serignese through his reps at William Morris to keep her quiet.
He admitted he needed to prevent at least one person from finding out.
“Mrs. Cosby,” he said.
The admissions in the 2005 and 2006 depositions were revealed one day before Cosby, 78, is scheduled to be in court for a preliminary hearing in a sexual-assault case involving the claims made by Constand, 43.
In the deposition, Cosby admitted giving pills to Constand, then an employee at the comic’s alma mater, Temple University.
“I don’t hear her say anything .?.?. And so I continue and I go into the area that is somewhere between permission and rejection,” he said.
Cosby also recalled getting numerous models sent to him each week by an agency he didn’t name. He said he liked to take the girls for “a very, very good meal.”
He described a woman, either 18 or 19, who came to his home to talk about her acting career in 2000. He said he pulled out a bottle of lotion.
“On a later occasion, you had her masturbate you with lotion, did that ever happen?” Constrand’s lawyer asked.“Yes,” he said.
“[She] used the lotion to rub your penis and make you ejaculate?” Cosby was asked.
“Bingo,” he replied.
In another case, involving a 19-year-old in New York, Cosby admitted giving her booze and massaging her back. But Cosby insisted they stopped short of sex.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Monday denied Cosby’s request to delay the key pretrial hearing.
