If you didn’t want to believe the rape allegations against Bill Cosby were true, you just may now. In 2005, Cosby admitted to getting prescription drugs with the intent of giving them to a young Temple University woman he wanted to have sex with.
Cosby made the shocking admission during a deposition for a lawsuit Andrea Constand filed against him claiming he raped and drugged her at his Pennsylvannia home. During the deposition Cosby said he got prescriptions for Quaaludes back in the 70s with the intent to give them to women he wanted to have sex with. He also said he gave Constand 3 half-pills of Benadryl.
In 2006 Cosby settled the case for an undisclosed amount, and asked that the case be sealed. On Monday, the Associated Press was able to get a copy of the deposition despite Cosby’s attorney’s protesting that the information would be embarrassing to their client.
Cosby, 77, has been accused by more than two dozen women of sexual misconduct, including allegations that he drugged and raped them in incidents dating back more than four decades. Cosby resigned in December from the board of trustees at Temple, where he was the popular face of the Philadelphia school in advertisements, fundraising campaigns and commencement speeches.
