Bill Cosby has been named in a new lawsuit filed by several women who claim he sexually assaulted them years ago.
Janice Dickinson and Lili Bernard are two of the nine women named in a new complaint that TMZ claims named Cosby for a string of sex assaults and battery that occurred in Nevada between 1979 and 1992.
According to the women, some of the alleged incidents occurred in Cosby’s Las Vegas suite.
Former “The Cosby Show” cast member, Bernard, claims that in 1990, Cosby set up a trip from New York to Nevada under the guise of setting her up to meet with Hollywood producers.
She said that when she arrived in Vegas, Cosby told her that producers were not available to meet and instead extended an invitation to a mentorship session in his hotel suite, where she claims he persuaded her to consume a substance that left her feeling lightheaded, disoriented, and elated.
As a result of the effects of the drink, Lili claims she fell in Cosby’s suite and became unconscious, and when she awoke, she was naked next to a naked Cosby, who raped her despite telling him she didn’t want sex.
The lawsuit also states that Cosby allegedly invited Dickinson out to Lake Tahoe under the pretense of discussing a television role in 1982.
The model claims that while out to dinner, she complained to Cosby about her period cramps, and he responded by giving her a pill that he claimed would relieve the pain.
After taking the medication, the former model claims she felt woozy, disoriented, and dizzy; she also alleges that Cosby raped her in his suite. She claims that she yelled at him to stop and made unsuccessful attempts to fend him off.
Neither Lili nor Janice says they consented to or resisted Cosby’s sexual acts against their will, and they both say they were mentally and physically unable to resist or consent to them.
In their lawsuit against Cosby, the women claim they will be suing for damages due to emotional distress, embarrassment, mental anguish, and humiliation as a result of his actions.
