Bill Cosby once admitted to obtaining drugs to give to women for sex. In a 2005 testimony obtained by the Associated Press, the Cosby Show alum admitted to getting Quaaludes and other sedatives with the intent of giving them to women he wanted to have sex with.
The findings come after the AP went to court to “compel the release of the documents,” which Cosby’s lawyers attempted to keep sealed, arguing releasing the documents would embarrass their client, the news organization reports.
Cosby, who has been accused by more than two dozen women of sexual assault, testified under oath to giving three half-pills of Benadryl to a former Temple University employee who filed the lawsuit. Cosby previously sat on the school’s board of trustees until resigning this past December.
The now 77-year-old actor settled the case in 2006 on undisclosed terms.
As previously reported, celebrities including Janice Dickinson have come forward with accusations against Cosby, alleging that he drugged and raped them years ago.
Cosby’s lawyers have continued to deny the accusations and he’s yet to be charged. Dickinson has since filed a lawsuit against the star. “I’m suing Bill Cosby for justice and vindication…I was drugged and raped by Bill Cosby. And the fact that he and his spokespeople have called me a liar…referring to remarks that I’ve made…it’s not correct. I want to fight,” she said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight in May. “I want to fight this and let everyone know that I’m not being paid anything monetarily to do this. It’s just the right thing to do."
