LOS ANGELES, Aug. 13 (UPI) — Three more women publicly came forward during a press conference in Los Angeles on Wednesday with accusations that Bill Cosby sexually assaulted them.
Hughes, now 64, was a flight attendant at the time she met Cosby, who drank champagne from her Gucci footwear during a meeting at his hotel room. After choosing to drink the champagne from a glass, Hughes claims she passed out and awoke hours later with semen on her back.
Whitedeer, now 69, claims she was attacked by Cosby in 1971 when she went to talk to him about her acting career. She described his attack as “fast with surgical precision and surprise on his side,” later adding that she was forced to give him oral sex.
The third alleged victim, Eden Tiri, now 49, appeared on an episode of The Cosby Show. She described how she was led off set to Cosby’s dressing room where he wrapped his arms around her and whispered in her ear, “See that’s all we were going to do, make love. This is making love.” Tiri was then able to turn around and escape without saying a word.
There are now 49 accusers. Thirty-five of them recently posed together for the cover of New York Magazine’s July 27 issue.
Judy Huth, another alleged victim represented by Allred, filed a civil suit last December against Cosby after he molested her 40 years ago at the Playboy Mansion. This had led to Cosby being ordered to give his first deposition since 2005. Portions of that deposition were unsealed in July, revealing that Cosby admitted to giving Quaaludes to a woman he then had sex with.
