The Bill Cosby case has just gotten even messier. New reports claim The Cos admitted to having sex with two teens, and he even had an agent pay one of the girls off to keep quiet. One young woman was said to be 17 years old at the time of the incident in 2000.
According to People:
Entertainer Bill Cosby admitted to having sex with at least two teen-aged girls and said an agency would send “five or six” models to his studio each week while he was filming one of his sitcoms, according to portions of Cosby’s deposition in a long-settled civil released by the Associated Press on the eve of a preliminary hearing on the lone criminal case against Cosby.
This is based on depositions Cosby gave in 2005 and 2006 during Andrea Constand’s civil lawsuit against him.
The transcript reads:
Q: She says that just days after … she told you that she did not drink, you told her to come over to (your townhouse) and served her amaretto. Do you recall serving her amaretto?
Q: That you told her to sit next to you on the couch and that you put your arm around her and began massaging her shoulder and arms suggestively. Did that occur? … This occurred sometime after you met her parents.
A: I need clarification on time.
Q: She’s 17 and I believe throughout the time she knows you she becomes 18 or 19.
Q: On a later occasion you had her masturbate you with lotion. Did that ever happen?
According to TMZ, Cosby also admitted to having consensual sex with then 19-year-old Therese Serignese in 1976. The comedian supposedly had an agent give Serignese money so she wouldn’t tell his wife about the affair.
Cosby returns to court today (March 24) in Norristown, Pennsylvania for a preliminary hearing. He’s facing three counts of felony indecent assault from alleged sexual abuse of Constand in 2004.
They settled the civil suit in 2006, but the newly elected prosecutor reopened the criminal case after taking office.
