Bill Cosby’s popularity has been rising over this past year and all for the wrong reasons. The 77 year old comedian is now being sued by ex-model Janice Dickinson for defamation. Dickinson filed her lawsuit in the Los Angeles County Superior Court on Wednesday. She claims that Cosby drugged and raped her in 1982, then claims her reputation was damaged when Cosby’s camp denied the allegations and accused her of being a liar.
Dickinson said that when she visited Cosby by invitation to discuss her singing career, he allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted her. Cosby’s lawyer Marty Singer responded to the accusations by calling Dickinson’s claim a lie, arguing that her recent statements were contradicted by her description of the events that happens in her autobiography.
The 60 year old ex-model said that she is doing this to seek justice for herself and other women. Cosby has stayed mostly quiet throughout this whole process.
