Model Beverly Johnson Latest to Claim Bill Cosby Drugged Her in Vanity Fair

+

The list of women who’ve accused Bill Cosby of drugging them or raping them has grown once again, with the addition of Beverly Johnson. The model writes in Vanity Fair today of a series of meetings they had in the mid 1980s to discuss a possible role on The Cosby Show. One one occasion he insisted she have a cappuccino he had prepared for her.

Cosby said he wanted to see how I handled various scenes, so he suggested that I pretend to be drunk. (When did a pregnant woman ever appear drunk on The Cosby Show? Probably never, but I went with it.)

Having been around drugs during her time in modeling, Johnson says she knew pretty soon that something wasn’t right.

My head became woozy, my speech became slurred, and the room began to spin nonstop. Cosby motioned for me to come over to him as though we were really about to act out the scene. He put his hands around my waist, and I managed to put my hand on his shoulder in order to steady myself.

She was determined to let him know that she knew what he was doing.

As I felt my body go completely limp, my brain switched into automatic-survival mode. That meant making sure Cosby understood that I knew exactly what was happening at that very moment.

“You are a motherfucker aren’t you?”

Fortunately for Johnson, Cosby promptly threw her out, and put her in a cab. Read the rest of the disgusting story here.
