Bill Cosby has been under fire lately, when accusations appeared that he drugged and and raped multiple women surfaced. The longer this ordeal goes on the more Cosby’s luck seems to run out. Recently, A deposition has gone public where the actor and comedian has admitted he had obtained a sedatives with the intent of giving them to multiple women in order for them to have sex with him.The documents were originally published by the New York Times, this past Saturday(July 18).
The documents that were uncovered come from 2005 and 2006 depositions that were created from Andrea Constand‘s case. She had accused Cosby of molestation. The actor denied all accusations of assault but he did shed some light on his extramarital affairs and exactly how he managed to seduce women into participating in them.
Here is what you need to know from the documents:
First, Cosby admitted to obtaining several prescriptions for a sedative called Quaalude. He originally asked for this from an Los Angeles doctor, claiming he had back pain. However, he suspected his doctor knew he had other intentions when asking for the prescription, which he obtained over a two to three year period in the 1970s.
“What was happening at that time was that that was — Quaaludes happen to be the drug that kids, young people were using to party with and there were times when I wanted to have them just in case.”
Cosby admitted to never taking them himself, since they made him sleepy, but he did offer them to other people,“the same as a person would say have a drink.”
He was also asked about his interactions with these women. One interaction in particular involved a women who stayed behind after a dinner party in his Manhattan apartment. Cosby admitted to asked her questions regarding her father’s cancer treatment. He also responded “Yes” when asked if he only asked these question because he wanted to have sexual contact with her.
Cosby was also pretty testy during his line of questioning. He often had a few snide remarks to give, most of them came when he was asked about an encounter with a woman named Therese Serignese who reported that she was unable to consent to sexual relations with the actor due to her being emancipated from the sedatives he had given her.
“Q. Now, what do you think about? Do you have a problem answering that question?
A. I was waiting for you to stop talking.
Q. Okay. What did you think about?
A. Am I allowed to think?”
The deposition also details how Cosby managed to hide these affairs from his wife, Camille. In this case of Ms. Constand, he had offered to pay for her educational expenses not through his foundation but by “our writing a check.”
In the case of Ms. Serignese, who he took advantage of in Las Vegas, Cosby had $5,000 routed to her through his agent at the William Morris Agency.
Q. And did that come from your personal account or from the business?
A. That’s from my personal account.
Q. So, was the purpose of that to disguise —
Q. I have to finish my question. Was to disguise that you were paying the money to Theresa?
Q. And the reason you were doing — who were you preventing from knowing that?
A. Mrs. Cosby.
