A decade ago, Bill Cosby admitted under oath that he gave women drugs for the purpose of sex.
In a deposition on September 29, 2005, the comedian was asked, “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?“
“Yes,” responded Cosby.
After Cosby admitted this, the comedian’s attorneys attempted to argue to the judge that Cosby “misunderstood the question” and thought it only pertained to Theresa Serignese, who is one of the three women currently suing him for defamation in Massachusetts.
The documents obtained by The Hollywood Reporter were revealed after a Pennsylvania judge agreed to unseal old court filings in a settled case brought by Andrea Constand, who was the first woman to publicly come forward with allegations that he drugged and sexually assaulted her. The settlement happened in the midst of discovery as Cosby confronted charges that there were other women who were victims.
