    Timeline: Abuse Charges Against Bill Cosby -- Vulture



    A Timeline of the Abuse Charges Against Bill Cosby [Updated]
    Yesterday at 9:58 AM



    Thirty years ago this fall, The Cosby Show debuted on NBC, and its star was catapulted into the comedic stratosphere. The timing is prime, then, for the release of a sprawling biography. Written by former Newsweek editor Mark Whitaker, Cosby: His Life and Times documents the man’s rise from the Philadelphia projects, while also detailing the creation of his family sitcom and the murder of his son Ennis in 1997.

    The book is notable, however, for its complete avoidance of sexual abuse allegations that have dogged Cosby for more than a decade. In a statement to Buzzfeed's Kate Aurthur, Whitaker says, "I didn’t want to print allegations that I couldn’t confirm independently." Regardless, their absence is glaring. Consider the following timeline an appendix to the book.

    November 2002
    Andrea Constand, director of operations for Temple University’s women’s basketball team, allegedly met with Bill Cosby. Constand claims that Cosby, who had been a member of Temple’s track and field and football teams, assumed a role as her mentor.

    January 2004
    According to Constand, she visited Cosby at his Cheltenham, Pennsylvania, home to discuss career advice, and after allegedly (according to a civil lawsuit she would later file) giving her "herbal" pills to ease her anxiety, Cosby “touched her breasts and vaginal area, rubbed his penis against her hand, and digitally penetrated” her.

    January 13, 2005
    Constand, who had since moved near Torontoto study massage therapy, accuses Cosby of "inappropriate touching" —groping her breasts and placing her hand on his genitals — to Canadian authorities.Cosby’s lawyer calls her allegation "utterly preposterous" and "plainly bizarre.”

    January 27, 2005
    ABC News reports that the interaction between Constand and Cosby — who is at this point cooperating with the investigation — might have been consensual.

    February 10, 2005
    Tamara Green, a California lawyer, appears on the Today show and alleges that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in the 1970s.Green tells Matt 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 issues a statement: “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.”

    February 17, 2005
    Citing a lack of evidence, the investigating district attorney in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, announces he will not act on Constand’s accusation and bring criminal charges against Cosby.

    March 8, 2005
    Constand files a civil complaint against Cosby. The five-count lawsuit charges Cosby with battery and assault, and asks for at least $150,000 in damages. Thirteen women who allege similar experiences as Constand and Green are mentioned in court papers as Jane Doe witnesses.

    May 2005
    In Constand’s civil lawsuit, she alleges the comedian gave her three blue pills, which he said was herbal medication. Cosby’s lawyers, however, issue a court filing and attempt to clarify that the comedian merely gave Constand one and a half tablets of Benadryl.

    June 2005
    Jane Doe 5 goes public. Beth Ferrier claims she was in a relationship with Cosby in the mid-1980s, one that ended when he allegedly drugged her coffee and Ferrier woke in a car. “My clothes were a mess. My bra was undone. My top was untucked. And I'm sitting there going, 'Oh my God. Where am I?' What's going on? I was so out of it. It was just awful."

    February 2006
    While in the midst of her civil suit, Constand sues one of Cosby’s lawyers — and the National Enquirer — for defamation. Cosby had spoken to the tabloid the year before, and Constand claimed the interview defamed her as it “[intended] to or knowing it would injure” her.

    June 2006*
    Philadelphia magazine interviews another witness in Constand’s lawsuit, Barbara Bowman. “Cosby threw me on the bed and braced his forearm against my neck and attempted to disrobe me and himself,” she said. “I can still remember him messing with his belt. And I was screaming and crying and yelling and begging him to stop.”

    November 2006
    Cosby settles with Constand. Terms are not disclosed, and none of the 13 other women testify.

    December 2006
    The following month, People magazine publishes Bowman's account of several assaults: "It was in a hotel in Reno, claims Bowman, that Cosby assaulted her one night in 1986. 'He took my hand and his hand over it, and he masturbated with his hand over my hand,' says Bowman, who, although terrified, kept quiet about the incident and continued as Cosby's protégé because, she says, 'Who's gonna believe this? He was a powerful man. He was like the president.' Before long she was alone with Cosby again in his Manhattan townhouse; she was given a glass of red wine, and "the next thing I know, I'm sick and I'm nauseous and I'm delusional and I'm limp and ... I can't think straight.... And I just came to, and I'm wearing a [men's] T-shirt that wasn't mine, and he was in a white robe.'"

    That same People article reports that three of the Jane Does from the March 2005 case accepted cash from Cosby for years, and two others began consensual sexual relationships with Cosby.

    February 2014
    Katie Baker of Newsweek — Whitaker’s former employer — interviews both Green and Bowman about the alleged assaults. Bowman tells Baker she was disappointed in the settlement, and Green recounts running into and accosting Cosby in Las Vegas, yelling, “Rapist! Liar! Asshole!” While Cosby doesn’t issue a statement regarding Bowman’s claims, his publicist responds to Green, “This is a 10-year-old, discredited accusation that proved to be nothing at the time, and is still nothing.”

    October 16, 2014
    Comedian Hannibal Buress does an extended bit about the rape charges in Cosby's home town of Philadelphia. "Bill Cosby has the fucking smuggest old black man public persona that I hate," Buress says. "Pull your pants up, black people. I was on TV in the ’80s. I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom. Yeah, but you raped women, Bill Cosby. So, brings you down a couple notches." A clip of the set goes viral after being posted in Philadelphia magazine.

    November 10,2014
    To battle the bad press, Cosby's PR team launches an online meme generator. Twitter is immediately inundated with references to the rape claims.

    November 13, 2014
    Inspired by the reactions to Buress's bit, Bowman pens an op-ed in the Washington Post, titled "Bill Cosby raped me. Why did it take 30 years for people to believe my story?" She notes that "only after a man ... called Bill Cosby a rapist in a comedy act last month did the public outcry begin in earnest."

    November 15, 2014
    Cosby is asked about the various charges on NPR's "Weekend Edition" but stays silent. His lawyer later posts a statement saying Cosby "won't dignify these allegations with any response."

    November 16, 2014
    A new accuser, Joan Tarshis, alleges that Cosby drugged and assaulted her on two occasions in 1969. "As more and more of his rape victims have come forward, all telling similar stories," Tarshis says, "the time is right to join them."

    November 17, 2014
    Linda Joy Traitz, a former waitress at Cosby's Café Figaro, writes a lengthy Facebook post accusing the actor of trying to drug her in the early '70s. She says the incident occurred when Cosby drove her home one night: "He drove out to the beach and opened a briefcase filled with assorted drugs and kept offering me pills 'to relax,' which I declined. He began to get sexually aggressive and wouldn’t take ‘No’ for an answer. I freaked out and demanded to be taken home."

    November 18, 2014
    On Entertainment Tonight, supermodel Janice Dickinson becomes the latest woman to accuse Cosby of sexual abuse, saying the comedian drugged and raped her in 1982. She recalls Cosby giving her wine and a pill, which he told her were for menstrual cramps: "Before I woke up in the morning, the last thing I remember was Bill Cosby in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe and getting on top of me. And I remember a lot of pain. The next morning I remember waking up with my pajamas off and there was semen in between my legs." Dickinson alluded to the event in her 2002 memoir, and later told Howard Stern she was asked to change the text to show Cosby in a better light.

    Netflix indefinitely shelves the Bill Cosby stand-up special that was set to air Thanksgiving week.

    November 19, 2014
    Nearly all remnants of Cosby vanish from the airwaves as TV Land pulls all Cosby Show reruns from its schedule and NBC scraps the sitcom it was developing with him.

    The Associated Press releases video of a November 6 interview in which Cosby tells an AP interviewer to "scuttle" footage of him refusing to comment on the charges. "If you want to consider yourself to be serious," he says, "it will not appear anywhere." Cosby later says he "thought AP had the integrity to not ask."

    November 20, 2014
    A hoax website publishes a story saying Raven-Symoné was abused by Cosby as a child. Symoné disputes the rumor on Instagram: "I was NOT taking [sic] advantage of by Mr. Cosby when I was on the Cosby Show! I was practically a baby on that show and this is truly a disgusting rumor that I want no part of! Everyone on that show treated me with nothing but kindness. Now keep me out of this!"

    Three additional women accuse Cosby of sexual assault: Carla Ferrigno, wife and manager of Incredible Hulk actor Lou Ferrigno, says Cosby "attacked" her when she was a teenager, grabbing and kissing her at a 1967 party; Love, American Style actress Louisa Moritz tells TMZ that Cosby forced her to perform oral sex on him in a Tonight Show green-room in 1971; and nurse Theresa Serignese claims Cosby drugged and raped her in 1976. Serignese was one of 13 Jane Does in the 2005 court case, while Ferrigno and Moritz provide new allegations.

    In another statement, Cosby's lawyer condemns the "media-driven feeding frenzy" and calls the latest round of allegations "utter nonsense." As he writes, "People are trying to come up with these wild stories in order to justify why they have waited 40 to 50 years to disclose these ridiculous accusations."

    November 21, 2014
    Three more accusers step forward. All tell similar stories: Kristina Ruehli says Cosby spiked her bourbon and forced her to perform oral sex in 1965; Picture Pages actress Renita Chaney Hill alleges Cosby drugged and assaulted her multiple times when she was a teenager; and model Angela Leslie contends that Cosby invited her to his Las Vegas hotel room in 1992, got naked, then forced her to masturbate him.

    Multiple theaters cancel upcoming apperances by Cosby, including the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and the Virginia Theater in Illinois.

    So far, 12 women have publicly accused Cosby of assaulting them. Nine additional women have done so anonymously.

    This post has been updated throughout.

    * This article initially stated that Barbara Bowman's interview was in a November 2006 Philadelphia magazine interview. The piece was published in June 2006.

    ^^That account wasn't verified, so are we sure it was Lisa Bonet? Having said that, I would love to hear from Phylicia Rashad or other women he worked with. Maybe he was able to control himself while at work, maybe they signed NDAs. I guess it's possible, he has asked friends and collegues not to comment, even if they have something positive to say.

    It shows how fast this story is moving that Vulture's timeline doesn't even include Joyce Emmons and Michelle Hurd's statements.

    ^^^ I know, it's kind of scary how fast they're lining up to add their stories (and I believe them); think how many HAVEN'T joined the others yet. I'm still hoping that someone recent, meaning, within the statue of limitations, comes forward. This guy is a predator, and they just don't retire. I want to see charges against him that will stick.

    I agree that someone who exhibits this kind of predator behavior typically doesn't stop. There was an article in the Washington Post today, asking if the original Cosby Show could be saved (as something that runs in syndication all over the world) - because the stories about Cosby's behavior would eclipse what people remember about the show and how people view Cosby. This story from the Daily News today will probably put the final nail in that coffin.

    Wow. Even though he finally quit, no respect. He knew what was going on and facilitated it.

    I wonder is Camille is still grinning like a fool. She doesn't seem to be a stupid woman (highly educated), so WHY is she putting up with this?

    Apparently, according to TheGrio, Bonet's manager has issued a public statement staying that Lisa does not have a Twitter account, and that the statement did not come from her.

    Did Lisa Bonet just weigh in on Cosby’s rape allegations scandal? | theGrio

    "Update: According to Lisa Bonet’s manager, the actress is not on Twitter and the following message in not authentic.

    Did Lisa Bonet, who played Bill Cosby‘s daughter Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show, send out a tweet addressing the Cosby rape accusation scandal?
    A tweet posted on November 21st, through the unverified twitter account attributed to the actress, talks about ‘karma....."

    I can't remember if this has been added or not but Lou Ferrigno's wife Carla has said that she had a 'near miss' with Cosby back in 1967.

    EXCLUSIVE: Bill Cosby used a 'friend' to court wife of Incredible Hulk star Lou Ferrigno and then set her up with comic at his home - where he attacked her after Camille Cosby left the room

    • Carla Ferrigno, wife of The Hulk star, is coming forward to say the comic legend tried to sexually assault her in 1967
    • Former Playboy Bunny was 'picked up' by a nice-looking guy at the airport who asked her for a date and then introduced her to his friend, Bill Cosby
    • Carla says Cosby tried to ply her with drinks and forcibly kissed her at his home - after his wife had left the room
    • She never told Lou about what happened but now says: 'I'm coming forward. One more nail in the coffin'
    • Latest woman to accuse man known as 'America's dad' of attack

    Carla Ferrigno, wife of The Incredible Hulk star Lou Ferrigno, has revealed that Bill Cosby used a 'friend' to pick her up and arrange for her to meet the star.
    After a night out with Cosby and his wife Camille, they went to Cosby's home in Los Angeles where Camille retired, her date left the room and Cosby tried to have his way with her.
    Carla Ferrigno, in an exclusive interview with MailOnline, says she was still in her teens when Cosby tried to sexually assault her.

    What did Camille know? She was out with Carla, her 'date,' and Bill and knew she was in the house when she retired for the night

    Lou Ferrigno played The Incredible Hulk on TV from 1977 to 1982

    'What happened is I was Kentucky on vacation to see my family. I got back to LAX [airport] and this man maybe 30s, he came over to me and said he would love to have my phone number and take me to dinner sometime.'
    This was in 1967 and Carla was a Playboy Bunny in Los Angeles working at the Playboy Club.
    'I was used to that. So I said ok,' she said.
    'He called me about a week later and we went to dinner. We had a very nice time. Very nice man. And then he said to me after dinner, "My close friend is Bill Cosby and I was wondering if you might want to go to his house."

    I said, "sure", so I went over there with him. His wife was there.
    'And he was there. Camille. I can't remember anyone's name anymore, but I remember hers. I will never forget her.
    'We were there not even 10 minutes there and Bill suggested we go the movies.
    'He talked to me a lot at the movies. I was uncomfortable with that because his wife was there. But he was funny. He was fun.
    'So it was suggested we go back to his house to play some pool. And I loved that idea. I was the pool bunny at the Playboy Club. I was very good at pool.
    'I grew up with my mom in a bar that she owned so I was playing pool at seven. I was pretty good'
    She and her date and Bill started to play pool and in the middle of the game, she looks up and asked where Camille was.

    Bodybuilder Lou works out with Carla Green i

    'She's probably gone to bed,' Cosby told her.
    'Things are starting to feel odd now. I'm from the South and you always say good night to your guests so I asked, "Why didn't she say goodnight?"'
    'He said she was probably tired so I kept watching them play. And then Bill won, so Bill and I played. And pretty soon I noticed that the guy disappeared and I asked where he went,
    'He told me 'probably to the bathroom'.
    'Things really seemed odder now. We kept playing. Bill beat me. And just as I was ready to put the pool cue down he came forward at me. I thought he was reaching for the pool cue. But he came at me and grabbed me in such a powerful way. Grabbing me.
    I had never been treated so roughly and he pulled me hard to him, so hard.

    'He was much bigger than me. Much bigger and he pulled me so hard and so rough. I had never been treated so roughly and he pulled me hard to him so hard.
    'And then kissed me so hard, right in the mouth. No one has ever been that physically violent with me.
    'I was stunned. I was frozen. I took all my body strength and used both of my arms to stop him and push him away from me. He was so forceful.
    'And I said, "What are you doing?'" He just looked at me.
    'He said, 'What's your problem?' And I didn't know what to say. I said, 'I've never been kissed by a black man before.'
    And he said, "How was it?" And I said,"Just the same."
    'He glared at me and in this very mean tone said, 'Obviously it isn't, or you wouldn't have made that comment.'

    'I just ran. I just took off down the hallway, and I saw my friend show up in the hallway, I knew right then, that he knew, he knew why he was bringing me here.'
    She told him she wanted to go home. They didn't talk about what happened. He took her home and she never saw that man again.
    I want to address every woman in America to come forward so this sort of thing doesn't happen again. Any woman who was hurt by this man needs to stand up and speak out. No more. No more.

    'Since then, when I've thought about it, I look back and think, after that 'push' when I pushed him away and he was staring at me, he was evaluating me.
    'He tried to give me drinks.'
    She said no and then he asked if she wanted any other kind of drink, and she refused.
    'I wasn't one of the vulnerable ones. I wasn't one of the ones he was going to get.
    Carla says she never told her husband about what happened. 'I didn't tell even him (meaning Lou), eight years ago when that woman came out ( Andrea Constand)
    ' And a few years before that, I was at a celebrity event with Lou. We were all at tables. He (Cosby) was at another table and Lou said he was going over there to talk and say hi.'
    She told him she wasn't going over to say hello to that man.
    When I was reminded when we went to that event, I didn't even tell Lou about it then. And the last couple days, I'm hearing it on every radio station and TV and I tell my husband that I have to come forward.

    Cosby finally gave some response to these recent allegations in an interview with the AP on November 6, saying he had 'no response' and 'no comment'

    'To be set up like this really really made me angry! It was just awful. I was listening to what he did to those other women and I feel blessed.
    'So blessed that he didn't do to me what he did to them. But some of those girls wanted something from him.
    'I never wanted anything from him. I was smart to get away. That was smart.'

    Lou told Carla he didn't want her to come forward. 'But I do what I want to do,' she told MailOnline


    Lou told Carla he didn't want her to come forward.
    'But I do what I want to do. He (Lou) went to Reno to work and I'm here. Lou said, "I don't think you should do it. It's not good. It's you know, not safe"
    I said, 'I don't give a f***, This was inside of me my whole life and I didn't like it. And every time I'd hear his name, I'd cringe.
    'I knew he was a creep and nobody else knew he was a creep, so I kept it to myself. It's that simple.
    THE WOMEN WHO SAY THEY WERE DRUGGED AND RAPED BY COSBY

    Andrea Constand - A Temple University employee, she claimed in 2006 that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in his Philadelphia-area mansion two years earlier. Cosby eventually settled this suit out of court as the prosecution said they had 13 Jane Does who would testify Cosby did the same to them in the past.
    Barbara Bowman - Bowman told MailOnline that Cosby raped and drugged her back in 1985 when she was a 17-year-old aspiring actress. Bowman was one of the 13 Jane Does in the 2006 trial against Cosby.
    Joan Tarshis - Tarshis claimed that she was just 19-years-old when Cosby drugged and raped her twice in Hollywood back in 1969 while she was working as a writer for him.
    Janice Dickinson - The supermodel said in an interview that Cosby asked her to come to Lake Tahoe and talk about a television role in 1982, but ended up drugging and raping her.
    Tamara Green - Green, who first came forward in 2005 told MailOnline that she was an aspiring actress in the 1970s when Cosby gave her pills and pretended to care for her while she had the flu, but instead sexually assaulted her.
    Therese Serignese - Also one of the 13 Jane Does, she says she was 19 when Cosby drugged and raped her in Las Vegas after one of his shows.



    'So who cares? Why not why tell the truth. I didn't tell even him (Lou), eight years ago when that woman came out (Andrea Constand).'
    'And I didn't think my husband needed to know. He's a jealous Italian and he adores me and he always has, and he's not going to stop now.
    'I have no reason to do this except my own reason. Bill said he won't talk about it.
    'I want to address every woman in America to come forward so this sort of thing doesn't happen again. Any woman who was hurt by this man needs to stand up and speak out against the insanity with the lawyers and the abuse. No more. No more.
    ''And I was a girl. Every since I was a young girl, starting at the age of five, it was okay. Men were trying to touch me or molest me.
    'I didn't expect all of this. I told my husband, "All I want to do is tell somebody," and he said "Why?' and I said "I want every one who has been touched by this man to come forward."
    'I'm coming forward. I want to be one of those women. One more nail in the coffin.'
    'One more nail so he never does this again to anybody! And I'm going forward. I have nothing to gain by it.
    'And guess what? I have nothing to lose from it either, so why not tell the truth?
    In an interview on the John and Ken Show, Carla says Cosby lunged at her and forcefully kissed her at a party when she was just a teenager - and his wife was home.
    Speaking with MailOnline after the interview, she said, 'I feel so bad for these women. I was the lucky one.'



    Bill Cosby declines to respond to allegations during interview

    He responds: This as Cosby has recently said he has 'no comment' about recent rape allegations

    'I feel so bad for these women. I was the lucky one.'
    She added, 'I mean 'lucky' in that he didn't harm me. It harmed me emotionally all my life but he didn't physically harm me.'
    Meanwhile, Cosby finally gave some response to these recent allegations in an interview with the AP on November 6, saying he had 'no response' and 'no comment.'

    With his wife Camille by his side, he then asked that that section of the interview not be shown.

    Prior to Serignese's claims, Barbara Bowman, Joan Tarshis and supermodel Janice Dickinson all came forward in the past few weeks to publicly say they were drugged and raped by Cosby.
    Cosby has never been convicted on any of these charges.
    These allegations are already having a major impact on his work however, with Netflix postponing the airing of his new comedy special, Bill Cosby 77, which was due to air the day after Thanksgiving, and NBC pulling the plug on a comedy project they were developing with the Cosby Show star.
    Cosby has also had scheduled appearances on talk shows including The Queen Latifah Show and Late Night With David Letterman cancelled in the wake of these allegations.
    TV Land has also stopped airing repeats of The Cosby Show.

    'So blessed that he didn't do to me what he did to them. But some of those girls wanted something from him.
    'I never wanted anything from him. I was smart to get away. That was smart.'.
    And this gem of a statement comes directly after her plea for other victims to come forward. Victim blaming from a fellow victim. It doesn't get much lower than that.

    I think it's a survival strategy. She thinks that "at least I got away, I didn't let him rape me".

    People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff.
