*Citing documents made public Monday, The Associated Press reports that Bill Cosby admitted in a 2005 deposition to obtaining Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with. He admitted giving the sedative to at least one woman.
Cosby’s lawyers fought legal attempts by the AP to release the documents, arguing they would “embarrass” the comedian – but the files were made public on Monday.
The 77-year-old comedian was testifying under oath in a lawsuit filed by a former Temple University employee. He testified he gave her three half-pills of Benadryl.
Cosby settled that sexual-abuse lawsuit for undisclosed terms in 2006. More than a dozen women have since accused him of sexually assaulting them. Some believe they were also drugged. Cosby has never been criminally charged, and most of the accusations are barred by statutes of limitations.
Cosby’s lawyers in the Philadelphia case did not immediately return phone calls to the AP.
