Three More Women Come Forward to Accuse Bill Cosby of Sexual Assault
Sexual assault allegations against Bill Cosby aren't going away anytime soon… now three more women have come forward to tell their stories.
The three women — American Airlines flight attendant Colleen Hughes, actress Linda Ridgeway Whitedeer and actress Eden Tirl — have joined the 40 other women, who allege that Bill drugged, sexually assaulted or sexually harassed them.
All three have chosen civil rights attorney Gloria Allred to represent them. At a press conference Wednesday, Gloria said, "There is no statute of limitations on free speech. A person who alleges that she or he is a victim can speak out at any time."
In Colleen's story, she revealed that Cosby invited her to lunch in Beverly Hills. She alleges that he ended up in her hotel room, and she woke up with her clothes all over the room. "It was disgusting. Bill obviously did not use a condom, and there was no lunch, and Bill was nowhere to be seen. I was confused and ashamed and never told anyone about what happened to me."
With Linda, Cosby allegedly lured her into a director's office and forced her to perform oral sex. "His attack was fast, with surgical precision and surprise on his side. When Cosby was done, there was a horrible mess of semen all over my face, my clothes and in my hair."
The other alleged victim, Eden, had a less graphic story about her encounter with Cosby. She was asked to meet him in his dressing room on the set of "The Cosby Show." Once she was in his room, Eden recalled Bill saying, "See that's all we were going to do, make love. This is making love." Eden added, "He turned me around, hugged me, and I left without saying a word."
Bill will be forced to address sexual assault allegations in a deposition for a separate civil suit, filed by another Allred client, Judy Huth. The deposition is scheduled for October 9th.
