Two additional women reportedly accused Bill Cosby of sexual assaulting them in the ’80s, according to court documents, which brings the total number of reported accusers to 60, per The Washington Post.
One woman, as part of a 2005 civil suit against Cosby, alleged that she passed out while the two were in his hotel room. The woman, reportedly identified in court papers as Jane Doe No. 6, claimed the incident happened in the mid-’80s after a Cosby appearance at Clemson University.
The Washington Post reports that the alleged assault described by Jane Doe No. 6 started with Cosby asking, ““Do you like back rubs or belly rubs?”:
The woman, an anonymous Jane Doe accuser in a 2005 civil lawsuit against Cosby, said she rubbed Cosby’s belly.
That’s when the story goes foggy.
The woman said she passed out. Her accusation, which has not previously been reported, adds to the mountain of publicly known allegations leveled against the 79-year-old Cosby as his case on charges of sexually assaulting a woman he was mentoring slogs through a Pennsylvania court. (Cosby and his attorneys have vigorously denied that he sexually assaulted any women.)
Another woman known as Jane Doe No. 8 in 2005 court filings and who worked as a modeling booker alleged that Cosby fondled her at his house in 1984. A friend previously recounted the alleged details of that night in 2014. The Post now reports:
A friend of hers, a male model named Tony Hogue, said in an interview that she was frantic when she called him from Cosby’s Manhattan home late one night in 1984.
The woman, who’d been to dinner with Cosby and one of the models from her agency that night, pleaded with Hogue to come get them. She said her “clothes were messed up,” Hogue recalled, and she was “very uncomfortable” because Cosby was kissing and touching her.
Hogue said he initially suggested that his friend ask Cosby’s driver to take her to the apartment where she was staying. Her response unnerved him: “She said she couldn’t even really move.”
Cosby is currently facing a felony indecent assault charge in Pennsylvania court, after one of his alleged victims Andrea Constand accused him of drugging and sexually assaulting her in his home.
There’s a chance the above-mentioned Jane Doe accusers would be asked to testify if that case goes to trial. They reportedly spoke to lawyers during legal proceedings for Costand’s 2005 lawsuit.
