The former model alleges that she was sexually assaulted by the comedian in a hotel in 1982. She claims that he gave her wine and a pill that he said would help cure her period pains, but later blacked out.
Dickinson alleges that she awoke the next morning without her pyjama bottoms and covered in semen. She also claims that she was in “a lot of pain downstairs”.
“The last thing I remember I was blacking out and Cosby mounting me like the monster that he was,” she told CNN.
“I was thinking, ‘What the heck?’ I remember passing out, but more specifically waking up and there was a lot of pain downstairs. There was semen all over me and my pyjama bottoms were off and my top was open. At that point, fight or flight, I just packed up and I got the hell out of there.”
Cosby denies the allegation.
She says she later felt “humiliated, disgusted and revulsion towards Cosby”, but “compartmentalised it because I was embarrassed”.
“This has affected me in my house; it has affected me and it’s really affected these women,” she said breaking down in tears. “But I’m strong, but I’m going to stand on my own two feet and tell my side of the story and it’s not going to end here.
“I would like Bill Cosby to at least acknowledge that he is a pig, that he is a monster and that he raped me.

Cosby’s lawyer, Marty Singer, denied Dickinson’s original allegations, describing them as a “complete lie”.
“The only story she [Dickinson] gave 12 years ago in her autobiography, as well as her interviews with the media, was that she refused to sleep with Mr Cosby and he blew her off,” said Singer.
“You can confirm with Harper Collins that she never claimed that Mr Cosby raped her, that no attorney representing Bill Cosby tried to kill the story (since there was no such story) and no one tried to prevent anything she wanted to say about Bill Cosby in her book.”
Numerous women have come forward over the past two months, alleging that Cosby sexually assaulted them. He has defended himself against the claims, saying “People need to fact check.”
In 2006, Andrea Constand claimed that Cosby had drugged and assaulted her in his Philadelphia mansion in 2004 - allegations firmly denied by his lawyers. Over 13 alleged victims were proposing to testify but the civil case with Constand settled in 2006. The terms of the settlement remain undisclosed.
Cosby has never been arrested or charged with any offence arising from the allegations.Reuse content
