Two more women have stepped forward to accuse Bill Cosby of sexual assault, and the details they shared will make you sick.
In a press conference with their attorney, Gloria Allred, the women described their encounters with the legendary comedian — and what they said is eerily similar to the MO we’ve heard from his other accusers.
Actress Lili Bernard said that her alleged attack occurred when she guest starred in an episode of The Cosby Show. Cosby was initially kind of encouraging, she said, but that quickly changed.
“After he had won my complete trust and adoration, he drugged me and raped me,” Bernard said in her statement.
The last time she saw him, in 1992, she said she was left fearing for her life. She claims he said to her, “As far as I’m concerned, Bernard, you’re dead. Do you hear me? You’re dead, Bernard. You don’t exist, I never wanna see your face again. Now get the hell out of here!”
“I interpreted that as a death threat and feared for my life,” she said.
The second woman, Sammie Mays, said she met Cosby at the NATPE convention in New Orleans in the mid-’80s. Cosby invited her to his room for a drink when she asked him for an interview, and after two sips she remembers nothing — until she woke up with her clothes askew.
“The next thing I remember when I awoke, from my state of unconsciousness I seemed to have been drooling, and was sloppily slouched in the chair with barely the edge of my bottom in it.”
Her shirt was unbuttoned, bra pulled to the side, and her belt was “unhooked and re-hooked, left loose around my hips.”
Cosby has not commented on the new allegations, but he has denied all rape claims in the past.
