She wrote in an essay for Huffington Post, “I met Bill Cosby while working in New York for the late film producer Ray Stark. I was a 21-year-old single woman in the world’s most exciting city. He was a 32-year-old internationally known comedian and television star, one of the most likable and popular entertainers in the business. He asked for my number and I gave it to him.”

Cindra claims that their relationship was platonic at first but things took a turn when Bill offered a pill to help with a headache.

She goes on to write, “I asked a couple of times what it was. Each time he reassured me, asking, ‘Don’t you trust me?’ Of course I did. This was Bill Cosby. What I do recall, vividly and clearly, is waking up the next morning nude in the bed of his friend’s apartment and seeing Cosby wearing a white terrycloth bathrobe and acting as if there was nothing unusual. It was obvious to me that he had had sex with me. I was horrified, embarrassed and ashamed.”

Ladd also explains why she never went to the police by adding, “It never occurred to me to go to the police. It was a different time and ‘date rape’ was a concept that didn’t exist.”

Over 20 women have now come forward with similar stories about their encounters with Bill.
