Women are continuing to come forward with accusations that Billy Cosby drugged and raped them over ten years ago, including former world renowned model, Janice Dickinson.
Dickinson revealed to Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier on Tuesday that Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1982. “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,” she said. “… 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. And I remember a lot of pain. The next morning I remember waking up with my pajamas off and there was semen in between my legs.”
She added, “Stuffing feelings of rape and my unresolved issues with this incident has drove me into a life of trying to hurt myself because I didn’t have counsel and I was afraid,” she says. “I was afraid of the consequences. I was afraid of being labeled a whore or a slut and trying to sleep my way to the top of a career that never took place.”
As rape accusations continue to mount, Netflix has made the decision to shelf the 77-year-old’s comedy special.
“At this time we are postponing the launch of the new stand-up comedy specialBill Cosby 77,” Netflix confirmed in a statement on Tuesday evening. According to the 77-year old’s rep, the decision was mutual.
The accusations came to light again after comedian Hannibal Buress called him “a rapist” during a show in Philadelphia.
