Accuses Cosby of rape

20 Nov, 2014

Serignese says she met Cosby, who was putting on a show at the Las Vegas Hilton, in 1976, when she was 19. After a party she was alone with Cosby and he offered her some pills.

I took them, didn’t know what they were didn’t even ask. I just was intimidated I guess and I took them. Then my next memory is feeling drugged and him having sex with me.

Cosby let her stay at his penthouse suite for several weeks, but asked her to leave when when she told him she might be pregnant (she wasn’t). She saw Cosby several times in the years following, but got married and moved on. In the mid 90s she got into financial trouble and reached out to Cosby, who said that Cosby had promised here $500 if she went to school and got all ‘A’s. Costby sent her $15,000 in total, but never heard from him again. In 2005 she says became a witness for another case, but the case was settled out of court.

I’m gonna say to Bill Cosby. You do owe me an explanation for why you did this to me. I want an apology. I want you to apologize for hurting me. I want you to apologize for taking advantage of me.
