Former supermodel and reality star Janice Dickinson has accused Bill Cosby of rape.


In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Janice said that the alleged rape happened in 1982 after Bill called her and told her to meet him in Lake Tahoe where he was performing to discuss her career.

She told Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier, “When I arrived in Lake Tahoe, Bill was performing at the venue and then after dinner, in my room, he had given me wine and a pill. The next morning I woke up, and I wasn’t wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man…”

Kevin then said, “You took the pill, you drank the alcohol.” Janice: “Red wine.” Kevin: ” . . . And then what happened?” Janice: “Before I woke up in the morning, the last thing I remember was Bill Cosby in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe and getting on top of me.” Kevin: Did you ever confront him about what you thought might have happened?” Janice: “No.” Kevin: “Did he ever say anything to you about what might have happened?” Janice: “No.” Kevin: “So you come forward to now to talk about this again . . .” Janice: “I’ll tell you why I’m doing this. ‘Cause it’s the right thing to do. It happened to me and it’s the true story.”

Janice said that she included the rape in a draft of her 2002 memoir, but Cosby’s lawyer pressured publisher HarperCollins to remove it.

Janice is the fourth woman to accuse Cosby of rape in the recent weeks.
