Retired supermodel and former America’s Next Top Model judge has become the latest woman to accuse Bill Cosby of sexual assault.
In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Dickinson claims that Cosby drugged and raped her in Lake Tahoe following a business meeting in 1982.
Dickinson is the 15th woman to come forward with allegations against Cosby.
Earlier this week, a woman named Joan Tarshis accused Cosby of rape and provided shocking details of the comedian’s abuse in an interview with Inside Edition.
Dickinson claims Cosby asked her to travel to Tahoe and have dinner with him, so that they could discuss the possibility of her appearing on The Cosby Show.
According to Dickinson, Cosby offered her a glass of red wine and a pill, which he said was a painkiller that would help with her menstrual cramps. Dickinson now believes the pill was a powerful sedative:
“The next morning I woke up, and I wasn’t wearing my pajamas,” Dickinson told ET. “And I remember before I passed out that I had been assaulted by this man.”
“I’m doing this because it’s the right thing to do,” Dickinson says about coming forward. “I believe all of the other women.”
Cosby has yet to respond publicly to the allegations. When asked about the charges during a recent NPR interview, Cosby simply went silent.
