Bill Cosby boasted for being skilled at reading non-verbal cues from women he sexually exploited. Deposition to his 2005 case filed against him by Andrea Constand revealed a side of Cosby that is in a stark contrast to what he projected to the public.
At one time, Cosby admitted his talent agency shelled out $5,000 to one of his women to keep their affair away from Cosby’s wife’s knowledge. To allure women, Cosby said he procured Quaaludes and gave them to women with whom he wanted to have sexual relations with.
For two to three years from 1970s, Cosby narrated he obtained seven prescriptions for Quaaludes from a doctor in Los Angeles and said further that while that doctor was aware he suffered from a sore back, he surmised that doctor nevertheless understood Cosby was not using the drugs for painkillers.
On the question on whether he takes some Quaaludes, Cosby said “no” but only used them in the same manner as when a man would ask someone to “have a drink.”
Constand lodged a complaint for rape against Cosby in 2005 and alleged the actor/comedian drugged her before raping her. Refuting such allegations, Cosby said the act was consensual.
“I walk her out. She does not look angry. She does not say to me, ‘don’t ever do that again.’ She doesn’t walk out with an attitude of a huff, because I think that I’m a pretty decent reader of people and their emotions in these romantic sexual things, whatever you want to call them,” Cosby said in his deposition released by the New York Times.
Cosby also disclosed on his ways to ensure his wife, Camille, remains to be on oblivion about his extra-marital affairs. He said that at one point, Constand was upset and decided she would like to go to school; so Cosby wrote a check for her instead of using education grants from his foundation. On the question on how he would explain to his wife that he was giving personal money instead of using the foundation funds, Cosby explained: “I would say to her that there is a person I would like to help.”
Bill Cosby was awarded with Presidential Medal of Freedom, which activists sought to revoke but President Barack Obama said there is no precedent in revoking the bill. More than 24 women came out accusing Cosby of sexual assault and calling him to take responsible for such alleged indiscretions. To date, the actor has never been formally charged for any sexual assault allegation.
