Beverly Johnson: Bill Cosby drugged me – Fox News
Beverly Johnson is adding her name to the long-growing list of women who have accused comedian Bill Cosby of drugging or sexually assaulting them.
The supermodel recalled in an article for Vanity Fair when Cosby allegedly drugged her.
Johnson wrote that she met with Cosby several times in the 1980s to discuss a possible role for her on “The Cosby Show.”
During one visit, Johnson alleged that Cosby insisted she have a cappuccino he made her but because of her experimentation with drugs in the 1970s, Johnson immediately realized the drink was laced.
“By the second sip of the drink Cosby had given me, [I knew I had] been drugged,” she wrote.
Johnson said she was able to fight him off before Cosby put her in a cab.
She writes that she later attempted to call and confront Cosby but eventually gave up after only reaching his wife.
“At a certain moment it became clear that I would be fighting a losing battle with a powerful man so callous he not only drugged me, but he also gave me the number to the bedroom he shared with his wife,” she wrote in Vanity Fair.
Johnson decided to come forward after her friend model Janice Dickinson and many other women broke their silence regarding their interactions with Cosby.
Cosby has repeatedly declined to comment on the allegations.
