BILL Cosby has admitted that he obtained sedatives with the intent of giving them to women to lure them into having sex.
The Associated Press is reporting the former Cosby Show star admitted giving Quaaludes to at least one woman, according to court documents.
But Cosby’s lawyers tried to block the details from being released publicly, saying the revelations would cause him “undue embarrassment”, Jezebel reports.
The documents — from a 2005 deposition — reportedly revealed the 77-year-old confessed to giving a young woman three half-pills of Benadryl, New York Postreports.
The 30-year-old became friends with Cosby when she studied at Temple University. The sexual assault, which happened in 2004, involved Cosby giving her three blue pills, which he said was “herbal medication” after she told him she was stressed,Jezebel says.
She sued him for charges including assault, emotional dress and invasion of privacy and the case was settled out of court in 2006.
More than 25 women have since come forward with accusations against the actor going back 50 years, some accusing him of drugging or sexually assaulting them.
