Bill Cosby Matt Lauer Tamara Green

Rape claim

10 Feb, 2005

Green, a California lawyer, appears on the Today show and alleges that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in the 1970s. Green tells Lauer that Cosby, who had given her pills to combat a fever, drove her to her apartment and began:

groping me and kissing me and touching me and handling me and … taking off my clothes.

According to Green, Cosby left two $100 bills on her coffee table afterwards. Cosby’s lawyer:

Miss Green’s allegations are absolutely false. Mr. Cosby does not know the name Tamara Green or Tamara Lucier [her maiden name], and the incident she describes did not happen. The fact that she may have repeated this story to others is not corroboration.
