Bill Cosby’s Lawyer Slams Janice Dickinson Again for Telling ‘Fabricated Lie’

Former model says comedian sexually assaulted her in the early ’80s

Bill Cosby‘s attorney has once again taken aim at former “America’s Next Top Model” judge and Cosby accuser Janice Dickinson, saying her claim that Cosby assaulted he in the early ’80s is “a fabricated lie.”

“Documentary proof and Ms. Dickinson’s own words show that her new story about something she now claims happened back in 1982 is a fabricated lie,” Singer told TheWrap in a statement Wednesday.

Singer’s latest shot comes after he blasted Dickinson’s assertion, made on “Entertainment Tonight” on Tuesday, telling TheWrap that her claims are “outrageous” and “defamatory.”

Dickinson appeared on the entertainment news magazine to claim that Cosby had sexually assaulted her in the early ’80s, after luring her to Lake Tahoe with promises of career help. Dickinson went on to claim that she wanted to include the account in her 2002 autobiography, but was pressured by Cosby’s lawyers after she submitted a draft of the book to her publisher.

In his statement Wednesday, Singer cited a 2002 interview that Dickinson did with the New York Observer, during which she was “completely contradicting” the tale she told “Entertainment Tonight.”

“That interview a dozen years ago said ‘she didn’t want to go to bed with him and he blew her off.’ Her publisher Harper Collins can confirm that no attorney representing Mr. Cosby tried to kill the alleged rape story (since there was no such story) or tried to prevent her from saying whatever she wanted about Bill Cosby in her book,” Singer continued. “The only story she gave 12 years ago to the media and in her autobiography was that she refused to sleep with Mr. Cosby and he blew her off.”

Dickinson told “Entertainment Tonight” that Cosby gave her wine and a pill, adding that she has a recollection of being assaulted by Cosby.

“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,” Dickinson claimed. “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. The next morning I remember waking up with my pajamas off and there was semen in between my legs.”

In the time since Dickinson’s Tuesday interview, the comedian has suffered a pair of career setbacks. In addition to NBC scrapping a potential sitcom that would have starred the former “The Cosby Show” actor, Netflix decided to postpone a Cosby comedy special, “Bill Cosby 77,” which was going to premiere over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Below is Singer’s full statement:

Janice Dickinson’s story accusing Bill Cosby of rape is a lie. There is a glaring contradiction between what she is claiming now for the first time and what she wrote in her own book and what she told the media back in 2002. Ms. Dickinson did an interview with the New York Observer in September 2002 entitled “Interview With a Vamp” completely contradicting her new story about Mr. Cosby. That interview a dozen years ago said “she didn’t want to go to bed with him and he blew her off.” Her publisher Harper Collins can confirm that no attorney representing Mr. Cosby tried to kill the alleged rape story (since there was no such story) or tried to prevent her from saying whatever she wanted about Bill Cosby in her book. The only story she gave 12 years ago to the media and in her autobiography was that she refused to sleep with Mr. Cosby and he blew her off. Documentary proof and Ms. Dickinson’s own words show that her new story about something she now claims happened back in 1982 is a fabricated lie.
