Janice Dickinson Claims Bill Cosby Drugged and Assaulted Her

By  |  0 Comments

The women claiming Bill Cosby of sexual assault expanded again. Former model Janice Dickinson, who says the comedian assaulted her when she was in her 20s, retold the story in an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight.

Dickinson, 59, told the celebrity entertainment outlet, among other things, that the comedian befriended her, offering to aid her career in music and a TV show when she was in her 20s, and then allegedly betrayed her by drugging her and taking advantage of her in Lake Tahoe.

“After dinner, in my room, he had given me wine and a pill. 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,” Dickinson said.

Dickinson, self proclaimed “world’s first supermodel,” first told her story in 2006 while promoting her third book, Check Please! Dating, Mating and Extricating. Yet the story gained little buzz at the time. Now, the comedian’s once-esteened image is starting to deteriorate as the accusations of rape and sex assault by more than a dozen women continue to surface.

Cosby’s lawyer released a statement Sunday saying Cosby would not dignify “decade-old, discredited” claims of sexual abuse with a response. The statement came after he was forced to remove#CosbyMeme, a meme generator that asked people to write text over his an image. Many took advantage of the site to express their opinions of the accusations, including writing wild allegations of sex assault and rape.

After the meme fiaco, Cosby refused to address the allegations on NPR and he also canceled an appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman.

As more women continue to come forward with allegations of assault and rape, Cosby may be forced to respond sooner than later. To see more of Dickerson’s ET interview, click the video clip above.
