Janice Dickinson Sues Bill Cosby for Defamation: 'It's the right thing to do'


Janice Dickinson

Janice Dickinson is filing a lawsuit against Bill Cosby.

Janice, who is one of over 30 women to accuse Bill Cosby of sexual assault, alleges he both drugged and raped her. At the time of Janice’s accusation, Bill’s lawyer issued a statement which read, “Janice Dickinson’s story accusing Bill Cosby of rape is a lie.”

According to a copy of the proposed lawsuit provided to ET, that very statement led to the 60-year-old supermodel taking legal action.

“I was drugged and raped – drugged and raped – by Bill Cosby,” Dickinson told ET. “And the fact that he and his spokespeople have called me a liar – referring to remarks that I’ve made – it’s just not correct. I want to fight this. I’m not being paid anything monetarily to do this, it’s just the right thing to do.”

In the proposed lawsuit, which Bloom said will be filed Wednesday in California Superior Court, Dickinson and her lawyer accuse Cosby and his legal team of making a “false statement” and that the comments made “were written and published with the goal of making Ms. Dickinson an object of ridicule, contempt, hatred or disgrace, and to bring her public and personal humiliation.”

“It’s the right time,” Dickinson told ET. “I could not let myself be silent. I am sober today, and I’m in a program of vigorous honesty. I want to protect all those women that haven’t come forward and show them the love and support worldwide that what happened to me will not happen to another woman.”

We wonder what evidence she’ll present to the court…
