These are dark times for Bill Cosby! The number of women accusing him of sexually assault or the attempt thereof, is now numbers at twenty! The latest woman to come forward with allegations against Mr. Cosby is former supermodel and fashion icon, Beverly Johnson!
Johnson wrote an article in Vanity Fair where she revealed the exact details of their encounter. She claims to have met with Cosby several times in the eighties to discuss a possible appearance for her on “The Cosby Show.” During one visit, Johnson alleged that Cosby insisted she have a cappuccino he made her. Surprisingly, because of her experimentation with drugs in the seventies, she instantly realized the drink was laced. “By the second sip of the drink Cosby had given me, [I knew I had] been drugged,” she wrote.
Johnson said she was able to fight him off before Cosby put her in a cab. She goes onto write that she later attempted to call and confront Cosby but eventually gave up after only reaching his wife. “At a certain moment it became clear that I would be fighting a losing battle with a powerful man so callous he not only drugged me, but he also gave me the number to the bedroom he shared with his wife…”
Beverly decided now was the time to come forward with her story after her close friend, and former supermodel, Janice Dickinson and other women came forward with their interactions with Cosby. They say there’s strength in numbers…Naturally, Mr. Cosby has declined to comment.
