Sammy Davis Jr’s ex-mistress, Katherine McKee, is the latest women to come forward accusing Bill Cosby of sexual assault.


The 65-year-old told her story to the New York Daily News saying that Bill attacked her back in the 70s at a hotel room in Detroit while she was in town with Sammy. She told the newspaper, “Back then, I was Sammy’s road wife. He had an open marriage, and we were lovers. That’s how it went.” McKee said she was invited to visit Bill’s hotel room after dining at a local BBQ joint and added, “He was a buddy. He knew I was Sammy’s girl. I remember I walked in the door, and he had a robe and cap on. He took the ribs from my hands and just grabbed me. He spun me around, pulled my panties down, and just took it. We were still standing at the door when he attacked me. It was so fast and so shocking and so unbelievable. To me, there was a different personality involved. He was a different man. It felt like a different person performing that act.”



  • Katherine admitted that she never told Sammy about the incident and explained why she didn’t come forward before now saying, “I figured, ‘If I don’t think about it, it won’t bother me.’ Of course, with all these women surfacing now, it flushed it out. It was a rape, but it seemed so strange to call it that. We think of rape as a stranger who attacks you in a parking lot. I chalked it up to another powerful person in Hollywood who just felt he could take what he wanted from women.”
  • There are now over 20 women who have come forward to accuse Cosby of similar attacks.
