A face you may recognize has come forward and accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault. Supermodel Janice Dickinson sat down with Entertainment Tonight to share her personal encounter with Mr. Cosby. She claims he drugged and sexually assaulted her in 1982.
According to Dickinson, Cosby called her to Lake Tahoe, where he was performing, in order to discuss her career. She says hshe remembers that Cosby gave her red wine and a pill in her hotel room, which later caused herto black out. That’s when, she says, he raped her.
“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… 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.”
Janice went in to more graphic detail, but it wasn’t shown in the clip. She also says she once included her rape claim in a draft of her 2002 memoir, but Bill Cosby’s lawyer pressured her publisher Harper Collins to remove it.
As for why she’s choosing to come forward now, she says:
“I’m doing this because it’s the right thing to do, and it happened to me, and this is the true story.”
