Bill Cosby Admits to Paying Women to Keep Sex a Secret
Last week, the Associated Press published excerpts from a 2005 civil case in which Bill Cosby admitted to drugging women with the intent to rape them.
For many Cosby fans, the revelation came as an utter shock, and at least two celebrity supporters distanced themselves from the comedy legend in the days that followed.
Now, new excerpts from the 2005 deposition that have been obtained by the New York Times show a sick side of Cosby that’s sure to make his few remaining supporters question their faith in the once-beloved comic.
In sworn testimony, Cosby admitted to having several extramarital affairs and paying his partners to keep the sex a secret.
Asked about situations in which he allegedly engaged women sexually without receiving their verbal consent, Cosby explained that he is a “pretty decent reader of people and their emotions in these romantic sexual things” and has a talent for picking up on “non-verbal cues.”
At one point, Dolores Troiani – an attorney for the plaintiff in the case – complained about Cosby’s jocular attitude and stated that she believed the TV icon was “making light of a very serious matter.”
Cosby sarcastically replied, “That may very well be.”
When contacted by the Times, Cosby’s publicist said the comedian has no comment regarding these latest revelations
