Model Beverly Johnson Talks About How Bill Cosby Drugged Her

share on:

As the cases continue to mount against Bill Cosby, a top model in the 70s and 80s, Beverly Johnson has come out with her story.

According to Johnson, she was drugged by the legendary comedian, but he didn’t rape her.

Johnson claimed it all started when she got an audition for a part on The Cosby Show.

She claimed her and Cosby got close after the audition, and she started going to his place to practice her lines with him.

She wrote:

Cosby said he wanted to see how I handled various scenes, so he suggested that I pretend to be drunk. (When did a pregnant woman ever appear drunk on The Cosby Show? Probably never, but I went with it.)

As I readied myself to be the best drunk I could be, he offered me a cappuccino from the espresso machine. I told him I didn’t drink coffee that late in the afternoon because it made getting to sleep at night more difficult. He wouldn’t let it go. He insisted that his espresso machine was the best model on the market and promised I’d never tasted a cappuccino quite like this one.

It’s nuts, I know, but it felt oddly inappropriate arguing with Bill Cosby so I took a few sips of the coffee just to appease him.

Now let me explain this: I was a top model during the 70s, a period when drugs flowed at parties and photo shoots like bottled water at a health spa. I’d had my fun and experimented with my fair share of mood enhancers. I knew by the second sip of the drink Cosby had given me that I’d been drugged—and drugged good.
