Janice Dickinson claims she was sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby

Janice Dickinson has accused Bill Cosby of sexually abusing her.

Janice Dickinson has accused Bill Cosby of sexually abusing her.

Dickinson is the latest woman to claim abuse involving Cosby.

She described the details in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, saying the assault occurred in her hotel room in Lake Tahoe in 1982.

Dickinson says they had dinner in Lake Tahoe, and claims that he gave her a glass of red wine and a pill, which she asked for because she was menstruating and had stomach pains. And that's when she tells ET that things took a disturbing turn.

"The next morning I woke up, and I wasn't wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man," she tells ET. "... 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."

Cosby had allegedly reached out to her about her singing career and invited her to meet with him in Tahoe.

Dickinson wrote in her 2002 book, No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World's First Supermodel, about the awkward and uncomfortable interaction with Cosby, but did not include any abuse claims because Cosby's lawyers insisted she leave those details out.
