Bill Cosby raped me: Janice Dickinson
Supermodel Janice Dickinson has shockingly claimed she was drugged and sexually attacked by Bill Cosby in 1982.
The former “America’s Next Top Model” judge is the latest woman to come forward with allegations of being attacked by Cosby years ago.
Dickinson told “Entertainment Tonight” Tuesday she was summoned by Cosby to Lake Tahoe to discuss a role on “The Cosby Show” and so he could advise her on “a singing career.”
But the meeting took a disturbing turn, she claims, after the comic legend offered her a glass of wine and a pill. “The next morning I woke up, and I wasn’t wearing my pajamas,” she told “ET.” “I remember before I passed out thinking that I had been sexually assaulted . . . Before I woke up in the morning, the last thing I remember was [Cosby] dropping his robe and getting on top of me.” She added: “I remember a lot of pain . . . I remember waking up with my pajamas off and there was semen in between my legs.”
Dickinson met Cosby for career advice after being in rehab for drugs and alcohol. She says that years later she wanted to write about the incident in a 2002 memoir, but Cosby and his lawyers pressured her to leave it out.
“I’m doing this because it’s the right thing to do . . . and this is the true story,” Dickinson, 59, said of going public. “I was afraid of the consequences.” And, “I believe all the other women.”
She said angrily about Cosby, whom she never confronted, “How dare you take advantage of me? . . . Go f - - k yourself . . . And I hope you rot.”
An attorney representing Cosby, Martin Singer, said, “[The] Janice Dickinson story is a complete lie.”
He further denied that Cosby’s attorneys ever attempted to prevent Dickinson from writing anything about him in a book.
