Bill Cosby Admits to Drugging Women
For months now, we’ve seen over two dozen women come forward to the public to accuse Bill Cosby of drugging and raping them.
The reactions to these women’s claims have been split with many people praising the women for having the strength to come forward, while others have shunned them and have accused them of lying about America’s favorite TV dad.
For a while now, Bill Cosby has maintained his silence regarding the scandal and has continued performing at the venues that still allow him to make appearances.
And right when we thought that Bill Cosby would never speak on what happened to those alleged victims, newly released court documents have spoken for him.
Court documents dating back to 2005 have been released to the public and include transcripts from Cosby admitting to drugging women he wanted to have sex with.
"When you got the Quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these Quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?" one of the victim’s lawyer asked Bill.
"Yes," he replied.
"Did you ever give any of those young women the Quaaludes without
their knowledge?" the lawyer continued.
Following the lawyer’s question, Bill’s attorney reportedlyobjected and told him not to answer the question.
Though we now know that Bill has admitted to drugging women, he still insists that his sexual relations were consensual and his defense for using drugs is that it was “the thing to do” back in the ‘70s.
Now, celebrities like Jill Scott are apologizing publicly for initially defending Bill Cosby. But still, there are other public figures like Whoopi Goldberg who are still defending Cosby and say that he’s still innocent until proven guilty in the court of law.
