As more women come forward with stories of sexual assault by comedian Bill Cosby, another woman has shared her own violating experience of her time with the star, adding to his fraught new legacy. Former model Jewel Allison, who was represented by the same agent who discovered Janice Dickinson, told the New York Daily News she was introduced to Cosby in the 1980s.
As with so many other stories that have come to light recently, Allison recounted being offered a drink that she suspects was drugged before Cosby allegedly sexually assaulted her:
Allison, among a bevy of alleged victims who came out with their stories in the past couple of weeks, finally accepted another dinner invitation to Cosby’s home, where it was again just the two of them. He produced a vintage bottle of wine, supposedly a gift from Chrysler exec Lee Iacocca.
“I was really impressed,” she recalled. “He poured me a glass.”
The wine tasted awful, and Allison suddenly felt woozy and ill. Reeling, she sat on a couch. Cosby then lifted her up and leading her into another room, she said.
“He said, ‘Look in the mirror, and see the glow in your face,’” she remembered Cosby saying creepily. “I looked at myself and I didn’t look good. My eyes were all over the place.”
Allison said Cosby grabbed her hand and placed it on his genitals.
According to Allison, Cosby then escorted her to a pre-paid cab outside his home, giving her "a very hard embrace and a hard kiss" before she went. She told the Daily News she then vomited the whole car ride home. Cosby reportedly invited the model for dinner again once after the incident, but she declined.
“We may be looking at America’s greatest serial rapist that ever got away with this for the longest amount of time,” Allison said. “He got away with it because he was hiding behind the image of Cliff Huxtable."
She added, "There’s no such thing as America’s Dad ... There’s just a man named Bill Cosby. He’s a very sick sociopath.”
