A seventh woman has just claimed that she was abused by Bill Cosby. It seems that the numbers of rape allegations against the popular comedian are in continuous growth. The woman, Therese Serignese, claimed that Cosby assaulted her about a decade ago.
These new revelations were made in an interview on WPTV. The woman is 57 years old now. She claimed that Cosby drugged and had sex with her in 1976. At that time, Therese was only 19 years old. It all happened in Las Vegas, after the famous comedian had a show in the city. Therese confessed that she met Cosby in the gift shop of the hotel he was staying in.
He invited her at the show and then, at the after party. That was the moment when the two remained alone and Cosby offered the woman three pills, saying that she should take them. Therese claimed that she actually felt that she could not object. Then, the comedian sexually assaulted her.
Following that night, Therese spent a few weeks in Bill’s hotel room, but he asked her to leave when she believed she was pregnant. Luckily for Therese, it was just a false alarm. The story gets even more interesting, as Therese said that she kept in touch with Cosby and she actually asked his help when she got into financial difficulty. Cosby helped her.
In the last few weeks, a series of allegations were made against Bill Cosby. His lawyers have claimed that these allegations are unfounded, but their number is without a doubt impressive. Moreover, these accusations impacted his career, as Cosby decided to withdraw from television interviews. It has been claimed that he also lost some business opportunities.
In a recent interview with the Associated Press, the comedian avoided to talk about the rape accusations. The interview was focused on the exhibition that was set to take place at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African Art. However, during the interview he was asked about the scandal. He refused to answer and when the interview ended, Cosby asked that none of the video of his refusal to comment to be released. “I would appreciate it if it was scuttled,” Bill Cosby claimed.
