Product Janice Dickinson tells jury that Cosby drugged, raped her

Top News: Bill Cosby faces accusers in courtroom along with supermodel Janice Dickinson Janice Dickinson makes Cosby judge blush as she finishes testimony

Model Janice Dickinson is telling a jury that Bill Cosby raped her after giving her a pill he claimed would help her with menstrual cramps.

Model Janice Dickinson, now a grandmother and the most famous accuser to take the stand in Norristown, a Philadelphia suburb, was 27 years old when she says Cosby raped her.

However, a third woman who also said she was abused by Cosby in 1989 only remembered after seeing a 2014 interview with Dickinson.

Type Janice Dickinson, walks through the Montgomery County Courthouse Whilst on a Rest from testifying against celebrity and comic Bill Cosby through the fourth day of his sexual assault Re-trial case in Norristown, Pennsylvania, U.S., April 12, 2018.

Cosby, 80, is not charged with assaulting the other five women who have testified, but prosecutors hoped to show a pattern of predatory behaviour by Cosby that eventually targeted Constand, 45.

Dickinson testified that her publishers advised her to leave the assault out for legal reasons, explaining, "You take poetic license in what you do". As in the past, Mesereau's defence tactic was to make Dickinson appear money-hungry.

She said she wanted Cosby to stop but couldn't say anything. Cosby said he had something for that and she said she was given a blue pill.

"So you made things up to get a paycheck?" Fenjves has backed up Dickinson's accusation, and she told Mesereau he should call him as a witness.

Wooziness, she said, was overtaking her as she was sitting on the edge of a hotel bed. After singing for them, she went to one of Cosby's shows and then had dinner. Dickinson's encounter with Cosby was set in motion, she testified, when the comedian called her while she was doing a modeling shoot on the island of Bali. She'd had sex, she said, with another man in the same month as sleeping with the star of the "Rocky" films.

"Who calls somebody in rehab?" she said. All but Constand's case were too old to be prosecuted, and Cosby's first trial ended in a mistrial in June because of a deadlocked jury. I was in shock I didn't consent to this I hadn't said yes.

As for the aforementioned eye roll, it came when Baker-Kinney said that the only time she'd met Andrea Constand was when she stayed, by chance, a the home of a mutual friend in Washington, D.C. for the Women's March in 2017.

As for Allred and the attention she invites, Lasha and Baker-Kinney both said they had neither paid nor been paid by her. Baker-Kinney said she had "no clue" about the $100 million fund; Lasha, asked about whether she was filmed for the new Netflix documentary Seeing Allred, replied, "I don't even have Netflix". I remember, here was America's dad on top of me, and a happily married man of five children, and I just remember thinking how wrong it was.

I couldn't move. I was I felt like I was rendered motionless.

Constand said she considered Cosby a mentor from whom she sought career advice.

Cosby's musical director left, Dickinson said, and Cosby told her, "We'll continue this conversation upstairs". "And I just wanted to go home". The judge has allowed her and four others to testify to demonstrate that Cosby over the decades acted with a "common plan or scheme".

Dickinson then clashed with Cosby's defence attorney Tom Mesereau during his cross-examination, in an exchange which United States media outlets described as "heated". "I wanted to punch him in the face".

The supermodel continued, "I was feeling really lightheaded and it didn't sound like my words were coming out".

She is scheduled to begin her testimony Friday morning. She took it and soon became woozy and "slightly out of it".

In response, Dickinson claimed that the story in her book was made up. She says she awoke to find Cosby penetrating her with his fingers and putting her hand on his penis.

The fifth and final prior accuser to testify, Lise-Lotte Lublin, said she remembered being in Cosby's room and blacking out, but does not remember a sexual assault.

"These girls proved that they have been right here to again up their sister - they acquired their sister's again", Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt mentioned outdoors courtroom Thursday.
