The latest of Bill Cosby’s alleged victims has claimed that she was drugged by the comedian and only woke up from her stupor two days later.
He has denied all allegations made against him.
The woman, known as “Lisa”, was 21 in 1988 when she alleges Cosby approached her modelling agency and asked to meet her.
“'He was a gentlemen and he was respectful and kind,” she said of their initial meetings. “He seemed very interested in me, and that made me feel very secure in seeing him again.”
On one occasion, she claims he invited her to discuss her career with him in her hotel room, when he asked her to demonstrate improvised acting skills.
“As I tried to do improv, he fixed a drink and then he brought it to me,” she said on US television show Dr Phil. “It was a brown liquid and it looked like a shot. I told him I didn't drink. He said that this was going to relax me so that the lines would flow out a lot easier. So I had to drink it. He made a second drink and had me drink the second drink as welll,” she claimed.
“I noticed myself getting a little dizzy,” she continued. “Bill had sat down on the edge of the couch. He said, ‘Come over here and have a seat.’ He had his legs open and when I sat down, I was sitting down in between his legs with my back to his crotch. He started to stroke my hair back in a petting motion. The last things I remember is just feeling the strokes on my head. After that I don't remember anything else.”
