Former Supermodel Janice Dickinson Just Gave Powerful Testimony Against Bill Cosby

Former Supermodel Janice Dickinson Just Gave Powerful Testimony Against Bill Cosby

"He said, 'Will you fly economy?' And I said, 'No, I will fly first class.' He tried to get me to fly economy".

She recounted last June during Cosby's first trial - which ended in a hung jury - how her "mentor" offered her what he said was an herbal pill to relieve stress, but which instead left her "frozen" and drifting in and out of consciousness.

Bill Cosby's defence lawyer ferociously attacked Thursday the credibility of a celebrity model who says the disgraced megastar raped her in 1982, sent her roses in rehab and made her want to punch him. She told jurors Thursday she was "rendered motionless" by the pill as Cosby got on top of her in his Lake Tahoe, California, hotel room. Cosby tracked her down to Bali, where she was modeling for an oil company calendar, and asked her to Lake Tahoe "to further talk about my career".

After her daughter was born, a DNA test confirmed Stallone was not the father, Dickinson said, adding "thank God". She awoke to find the actor known as "America's Dad" penetrating her with his fingers, touching her breast and putting her hand on his penis.

Dickinson said she wanted the book's sections about her rape to be complete and honest and gave that information to Fenjves but its use was overruled by publisher Judith Regan. From the years after the payoff, she started her personal business prior to moving back into Toronto, where she acts like a massage therapist and lives and transferred into vermont. "I felt disgust, humiliated, ashamed..." "Today, I'm on a sworn Bible.to tell my true story". I was thinking what the eff... It's not hush money, and I really resent people calling it hush money. "Cosby said we'll finish this conversation let's go upstairs so I followed him to his room".

Model Janice Dickinson, 63, walks through the Montgomery County Courthouse in a break from testifying on the fourth day of the Bill Cosby sexual assault retrial on April 12, 2018 in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

Cosby's defense team previous year portrayed Constand as a lover scorned, while his new gaggle of attorneys has repeatedly insisted she took advantage of a "lonely" old man to get to his millions.

"Ms. Constand, why are you here?" prosecutor Kristen Feden asked.

Cosby said he gave the Canadian an over-the-counter antihistamine to relieve stress and that their relations were consensual.

According to her testimony, she was furious at the star for attacking her: 'I wanted to hit him, ' she said.

"It was gross", she said. A very powerful man. "I wanted it to stop". As a physically fit former professional basketball player, she was confident she could handle him. I hadn't said yes. "I told him I was pregnant". If convicted, the former TV star best known for his No. 1 family sitcom "The Cosby Show" faces up to 10 years in prison on each of three related aggravated indecent assault charges.

Prosecutors in Montgomery County made a decision to reconsider the case after a wave of more than 50 women stepped forward in 2014 and 2015 to accuse Cosby of sexual misconduct and assault.

Cosby's first trial past year ended in a hung jury.

The defence has called the other accusers irrelevant, urging jurors to focus only on the charges that Cosby is facing.

"Don't call me a liar", she said.

On the witness stand Friday, Constand said she never shared a room with the woman.

She testified that when he finished his call, he climbed on top of her.

Janice Baker-Kinney returned to the witness stand Thursday after punctuating the first two hours of her testimony with a firm declaration: "I was raped". His lawyers have portrayed Constand as a gold-digging con artist. She came forward in April 2015, a few months after lawyer Gloria Allred proposed that Cosby set aside a chunk of his fortune to compensate accusers.

"I'd love to see if he thinks he's going to prove any of this", Troiani told The Associated Press.
