Bill Cosby wants to set the record straight!
On Tuesday, a motion filed by one of the TV legend's attorneys claimed that though he DID buy Quaaludes with intent of giving them to women he wanted to have intercourse with — it does NOT mean he gave them without their consent.
Hmm, very inneresting!
"Quaaludes were a highly popular recreational drug in the 1970s, labeled in slang as ‘disco biscuits' and known for their capacity to increase sexual arousal.
There are countless tales of celebrities, music stars, and wealthy socialites in the 1970s willingly using Quaaludes for recreational purposes and during consensual sex."
Ok, we all saw Wolf of Wall Street — but why would 40+ women claim Cosby assaulted them?!
The attorney continued:
"Yet upon the unsealing of those excerpts, the media immediately pounced, inaccurately labeling the released testimony as defendant's 'confession' of 'drugging' women and assaulting them.
Reading the media accounts, one would conclude the defendant has admitted to rape. And yet defendant admitted to nothing more than being one of the many people who introduced Quaaludes into their consensual sex life in the 1970s."
Yikes! The motion is in response to the recent deposition that was released on the request of Andrea Constand, the alleged victim that settle with the comedian out of court.
Miz Constand's attorney wrote:
"The release of these documents will assist other women who have been victimized and bring awareness to the fact that sexual assault is not just committed with a gun or knife but is also committed by mentors who engage in exploitative behaviors."
The unsealed deposition has been quite a headache for the funnyman. However, it appears the Cosby Camp is not willing to take the fight laying down.
His lawyer explained:
"The timing of plaintiff's July 8, 2015 motion reflects an attempt on her part to ride on the coattails of the barrage of inaccurate and negative media attention that followed this court's July 6, 2015 release of excerpts from the defendant's deposition.
Plaintiff should be denied further relief and instead should be sanctioned. The court should preserve what little benefit to defendant remains from the settlement agreement."
Those are certainly fighting words! It seems the drama for Cosby is nowhere close to being over.
What do U think of this plea from Cosby's legal team?! Do you buy it?
