In never-before-seen deposition footage from 2005, Bill Cosby admits to drugging women so that he could have sex with them.
The comedian testified that he got Quaaludes so that he could give them to young women to have sex with him. He apparently gave the drugs, which are sedatives, to at least one women and “other people.”
The Daily Mail reported:
Interviewed in a Philadelphia hotel over four days by a lawyer acting on behalf of a 30-year-old Temple University employee Andrea Constand, Cosby admitted to engaging Constand in a conversation about her father’s cancer with the sole aim of then having sex with her.
The bombshell deposition, unearthed by the New York Times, goes on to reveal how the disgraced comedian:
Telephoned Constand and told her to tell her mother ‘about the orgasm’ because he didn’t want her to think of him as a ‘dirty old man’.
Obtained prescriptions for quaaludes by claiming it was for a sore back, but actually gave the drug to women.
Paid women off with a private account so his wife, Camille, wouldn’t find out about his extramarital affairs.
Admitted he was ‘making light of a very serious situation’ when quizzed by Constand’s lawyer
Admitted to playing the role of mentor when it came to meeting women
Blocked a negative magazine article to avoid damaging his reputation
Cosby said of Constand, “I walk her out. She does not look angry. She does not say to me, don’t ever do that again. She doesn’t walk out with an attitude of a huff, because I think that I’m a pretty decent reader of people and their emotions in these romantic sexual things, whatever you want to call them.”
At this time, more than 25 woman have come forward accusing Cosby of sexual harassment and rape. The alleged acts of sexual misconduct span over a time period of four decades.
Back in December, Cosby resigned from his position at Temple University, where he was a popular face. He was involved in the school’s advertisements and fundraising campaigns.
