In the seemingly unending procession of women coming forward to accuse Bill Cosby of rape, the majority have been referring to incidents from the '60s, '70s, '80s—decades in the past, often because they were silenced for that long out of fear. But Chloe Goins, the latest woman to allege Cosby sexually assaulted her, is only 24, and says he did so in 2008, when she was just 18.
Goins, a Las Vegas-based model and dancer, told the Daily Mail that she was a party at Hugh Hefner's Playboy mansion when Cosby, she alleges, offered her a drink that made her feel dizzy. The next thing she remembers:
'I was in a bedroom and presumed it was in the mansion because I could hear music, I don't think it was Hef's room, it was just a nice room.
'I came to and remember seeing this big man crouched over me. It was Bill Cosby and he was at my feet, kind of licking and kissing them and I think he bit my toe as that's what woke me up.
'I kind of thank God for that because that's what woke me up and I came to.
'I was shocked, I said, 'hey, what's going on', he didn't really say anything, didn't explain anything or give a reason.
'He jumped up, pulled his pants back up quickly and left. He had seen that I was alert and bolted out of there, I was left in the room by myself.'
Cosby would have been 71 at the time of the alleged incident, and Goins told the Daily Mail that she has gone to the LAPD, as her report falls under the statute of limitations, and is prosecutable. After the incident, she says, she told her friend what happened. "I told her I didn't think I had been raped, but what happened to me wasn't right, at the very least he was groping and molesting me. She consoled me and said she felt bad about it, but neither of us thought about telling anyone."
