Bill Cosby has admitted that he gave prescription Quaaludes to women he wanted to have sex with. The newly released documents revealed the news. Read for more details.
According to CNN, there had been previous reports that dozens of women have publicly accused the American stand-up comedian Bill Cosby for sexual assault. One of the women Andrea Constand filed a civil lawsuit in 2005. The records were released publicly on Monday, July 6, after AP (the Associated Press) compelled the court.
The source revealed that Cosby answered the various questions asked by Constand’s attorney, Dolores Troiani, in the court.
The stand-up comedian admitted that he had the idea of using Quaaludes for young women he wanted for sex, when he got the powerful sedative.
When Troiani asked Cosby whether he gave the Quaaludes to any of the young women accusers without their knowledge, the actor’s attorney objected and told Cosby not to answer the question.
Cosby did not accept that he gave Quaaludes to the women accusers. However, he admitted that he gave the drugs to “other people.” However, before Cosby could reveal the names of the women to whom he gave the sedative, his attorney objected.
According to the Associated Press, at least two of the women confessed that they agreed willingly to consume the drugs given to them by the actor.
Singer Jill Scott, who had supported Cosby initially after the allegations emerged, changed her opinion after Cosby’s statement.
“About Bill Cosby. Sadly his own testimony offers PROOF of terrible deeds, which is ALL I have ever required to believe the accusations,” the singer tweeted.
The records revealed that Bill Cosby admitted that he bought seven prescriptions of Quaaludes with the intention to give them to young women with whom he wanted to have sex. However, he has not admitted that he has given the sedative to any of his accusers.
