Cosby, who learned today that the sexual assault case brought against him will go forward, admitted to the despicable behavior when deposed in a previous assault case in 2005 and 2006.
Cosby admitted to sleeping with a then-19-year-old Therese Serignese, adding that a modeling agency would send him young girls frequently — and he would give them Quaaludes when they arrived.
“I took them, didn’t know what they were, didn’t even ask,” Serignese told WPTV News in 2014. “I just was intimidated I guess and I took them. Then my next memory is feeling drugged and him having sex with me.”
In his 2004 deposition, Cosby said, “She became in those days what was called high… she meets me backstage. I give her Quaaludes. We then have sex.”
He later admitted to having Serignese give him a handjob with lotion.
Later in the deposition, it is revealed that another teenager filed a police report claiming Cosby tried to force her to have oral sex, which he denied.
Serignese later said Cosby paid her $10,000 as a “reward” for staying in school and getting good grades, and Cosby admitted hiding their sexual relationship from his wife Camille by simply telling her “there is a person I would like to help.”
The deposition came during the discovery phase of the case brought against him by Andrea Constand, the former director of operations for Temple’s women’s basketball team who is just one of dozens of women who allege Cosby drugged and assaulted her multiple times. The case was settled out of court for an undisclosed sum. He is now facing criminal charges in the same case, which could result in a decade of jail time.
