Bill Cosby admitted in 2005 he'd made use of quaaludes in his predatory acts
Bill Cosby's admission that he obtained quaaludes to give young women he was pursuing for sex could bolster defamation claims lodged by his accusers, the women's lawyers said after The Associated Press reported on newly released court documents.She's right. Shame on Cosby and his lawyers for doing all they could to villify his victims. But now, his past actions have come back to haunt him, and the collapse of his career has come about. Already, a few TV channels still broadcasting his past series have dropped them from their schedules, and the Walt Disney Corp. removed a statue from one of their Florida theme parks. The UK Mail has more with the court documents. And Philadelphia's municipality is considering removing an image of him from a mural on the north side of the city. It looks like his once legendary career as a comedian is taking a very steep downfall.
Cosby in sworn testimony unsealed Monday admitted that he gave the now-banned sedative to at least one of his accusers and to unnamed others. His lawyer interfered before he could answer deposition questions in 2005 about how many women were given drugs and whether they knew about it.
"If today's report is true, Mr. Cosby admitted under oath 10 years ago sedating women for sexual purposes," said Lisa Bloom, attorney for model Janice Dickinson, who contends she was drugged and raped. "Given that, how dare he publicly vilify Ms. Dickinson and accuse her of lying when she tells a very similar story?"
In the end, it's terrible this had to be the reality about Cosby. But alas, it was, and now, we have to accept that he was nothing more than one of the biggest deceivers in Hollywood history. He's taken quite a plunge, and did everything to deserve it.
