60 Bill Cosby Accusers: Complete Breakdown of the Accusations

TheWrap offers a comprehensive list of alleged victims of the comedian

Bill Cosby Accusers

Bill Cosby has been publicly accused of raping, drugging, coercing or sexually assaulting as many as 60 women in all since 1965. Many of the accusations only started to emerge in October 2014.

The 80-year-old comedian was found guilty by a jury in his retrial over accusations made by former Temple University employee Andrea Constand. Cosby was re-tried in a Pennsylvania court on three counts of aggravated indecent assault, stemming from Constand’s accusation that the comedian drugged and molested her in 2004 at his home outside of Philadelphia. The jury found him guilty in a unanimous vote on all three counts.

Below is the comprehensive list of Cosby’s accusers, the date of the alleged assault, when they came forward, and the specifics of their accusations.

1. Louisa Moritz

Date of Alleged Assault – 1969

Date of Accusation – Nov. 13, 2015

Actress Louisa Moritz — whose credits include “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and the Cheech and Chong film “Up in Smoke” — claims that she was in a backstage waiting room prior to appearing on “The Tonight Show” in 1969 when Cosby showed up at the door.

Cosby “implied that Plaintiff Moritz would become a major star through his direction,” after which he exposed himself, placed his hands behind her head, and “forced his penis into Plaintiff Moritz’s mouth over her resistance,” according to a lawsuit filed in federal court in Massachusetts. “Defendant Cosby said to Plaintiff Moritz, ‘Have a taste of this. It will do you good in so many ways,’” the lawsuit reads. “Defendant Cosby added, ‘I am going to make you something incredible.’”

2. “Dottye”

Date of Alleged Assault – 1984

Date of Accusation – Oct. 23, 2015

At a press conference in New York accompanied by attorney Gloria Allred, a woman referred to as Dottye claims she reached out to Cosby after she’d missed an open call for his sitcom and that he then called and asked her to audition for him. When she arrived at his New York brownstone, she said, Cosby gave her a drink and “began to spin me around.”

“Once he stopped spinning me I was dizzy and disoriented, and sick,” Dottye said. “Within seconds I began to vomit all over myself and his rug. I felt ashamed.”

Dottye went on to claim that Cosby disrobed her, washed her in the bathroom and apparently gave her a robe to wear. “He leaned me against the chest, raised the robe and raped me,” she said, adding that he then led her to the dining room “and laid me on the floor where he continued his assault.”

Dottye says Cosby led her to the front door and closed it behind her, leaving her to drive home to New Jersey by herself, but then “Cosby called me the next day, not to see how I was, but for phone sex!” Dottye recalled. “He tried to get me to do it, but I was no longer under the influence of what I thought was only alcohol.”

“He had his arm on my waist and forcefully pulled me onto his private area saying, ‘Hey, back that thing up here, girl, back it on up!’” Barrett claimed. “I felt his private parts against my backside. I cried out and tried to pull away from his vise-like grip on my waist.”

“The next thing I remember was waking up in my car, my head hanging down from the seat,” she recalled at a  news conference with attorney Gloria Allred in Los Angeles. “I knew I was drugged because I threw up. When I got home I realized my panties were missing and I never found them.”

Date of Accusation – Sept. 30, 2015

Pamela Abeyta, who aspired to appear in Playboy, said a mutual friend sent her to meet with Cosby’s producer at his Southern California home in 1979 because she knew he was a friend of Hugh Hefner. The producer booked her on the next flight to Las Vegas to meet with Cosby, she said.

He gave her $200 to gamble, bought $2,500 in new clothes and took her for dinner. “I don’t remember leaving the dinner show,” she said through tears. “When I came to, I was lying in Bill Cosby‘s bed, not my own room.” She passed out again and she came to “I saw two other naked people in the room by the bed,” she said.

6. Lisa Christie

Date of Alleged Assault – 1989

Date of Accusation – Sept. 30, 2015

However, two years later in 1989, the TV legend flew her to Chicago and they met at the Ambassador East Hotel.

Cosby suggested they do an acting exercise and asked her to kiss him “like a boyfriend,” she said. She pushed him away, but he reportedly told her, “I’ll give you the biggest orgasm you’ve ever had!”

They later went out for dinner and upon returning to his hotel room, “he made me kneel down,” Elizabeth said in a statement to reporters on Aug. 20. “I don’t want to repeat what happened next. All I know is that it was the most horrifying thing that could happen to an innocent young woman.”

She performed a monologue for him, after which he told her to do a read as a drunk person.

“How are you ever going play an intoxicated person … if you’ve never been drunk?” Cosby said, then gave her a glass of Chablis, according to her explanation. That’s when she says things got “foggy.”

According to Thomas, she woke up to find Cosby in bed with her. The comedian was naked and “forcing himself in my mouth.”

“I felt Cosby’s left hand gently grab my long hair behind my head … his giant frame blocked the door so if anyone should try to enter, they would not be able to see what he was doing,” Whitedeer said. “As I looked up his penis was out of his pants and he shoved it in my mouth.

Date of Alleged Assault – 1975

Date of Accusation – March 27, 2015

Shapiro told reporters that she met Cosby in 1975 while she was working at a donut shop in Santa Monica, where Cosby ordered dozens of donuts. She claimed that she was invited to Cosby’s film set, where she spent the afternoon with the comedian. Afterward, she was invited to a casual dinner with Cosby, but the dinner was canceled and the comedian invited her to the Playboy Mansion instead, Shapiro, who said she was 19 at the time, continued. Instead, the pair entered what she called a “rec place” or “game house,” and Cosby told her whoever lost at pinball had to take a pill. Shapiro lost — and when she came to, both she and Cosby were naked, and Cosby was inside of her. Shapiro claims to have “mercifully” passed out again, but every time she regained consciousness, Cosby was touching her sexually.

The alleged victim said that Cosby acted as if nothing had happened, eventually telling her that they would not be seeing Hugh Hefner and that she wasn’t dressed nicely enough, instead a driver took her home.

15. Sunni Welles

Date of Alleged Assault – Mid-60s

Date of Accusation – March 27, 2015

Welles claimed that she met Cosby when she was a little girl, due to the fact that her mother — who once considered him to be a friend — was a theatrical agent. “I once liked Cosby very much, but that has changed now,” Welles said.

According to Welles, in the mid-1960s when she was 17 her mother took her to the set of Cosby’s “I Spy,” where Cosby asked her for her number. Cosby then invited Welles to see jazz. The teen, who was auditioning for background singer jobs at the time, was “thrilled” by the invitation. At the jazz club, she ordered a Coke, and that “things began to become blurry” after she took a sip of it. Welles, who said that she didn’t remember leaving the club or driving anywhere, added that she woke up naked in an apartment where Cosby couldn’t be found. Welles went home and showered, she told reporters, and felt like she had sex. “I did not want to believe that a family friend would do that to me,” Welles told reporters at the office of attorney Gloria Allred.

“I was shocked and had no clue as to how I got there or why Mr. Cosby was beside me under the covers naked. I couldn’t move or speak,” she added. “I felt paralyzed. He flipped me over and sexually assaulted me. I felt like a rag doll and like a real life blow-up doll for him.”

“I am furious and I have decided to fight for my rights and the rights of every man, woman and child who have been victims of a sexual crime,” Lublin continued. “I have contacted every senator and assembly-person from the state of Nevada and I will continue to rally every victim of sexual assault, every rape crisis center and every supporter who believes in the right to have an offender tried in a court of law,” she said.

Date of alleged incident: 1974

Date of accusation: Dec. 22, 2014

Former Vegas showgirl and girlfriend of the late-Sammy Davis Jr., Kathrine Mae McKee, claims she was sexually assaulted by Cosby during the 1970s. “He was a buddy. He knew I was Sammy’s girl,” McKee says.

The actress says that she first met Cosby in 1964 and appeared on “The Bill Cosby Show” in 1971, but the alleged incident took place three years later, in 1974, after Cosby asked her to pick him up at his hotel to go to his friend’s boat party, according to a lawsuit filed in federal court in Massachusetts last December.

However, when she arrived, McKee claims that Cosby, dressed in a bathrobe and knit wool cap, “immediately set upon and physically attacked her,” tossing the food she had brought for him aside. “Cosby was wild and aggressive, and was acting nothing like the man Ms. McKee had known professionally,” the lawsuit reads.

Cosby then violently lifted McKee’s dress and pulled down her panties, the lawsuit says, and “proceeded to forcibly rape Ms. McKee” in an incident that was “shocking, scary and horrible.”

“To me, there was a different personality involved,” McKee said, regarding the assault. “He was a different man. It felt like a different person performing the act.”

“Bill had sat down on the edge of the couch. He said, ‘Come over here and have a seat.’ And he had his legs open and when I sat down, I was sitting down in between his legs with my back to his crotch. And he started to stroke my hair back in a petting motion like this,” she explained. “The last thing I remember is just feeling the strokes on my head. After that, I don’t remember anything else.”

After consuming a drink that he gave her, the model felt sick and dizzy before blacking out. “Ms. Goins awoke to find that her breasts were wet and sticky, as if someone had been licking them, and Cosby was biting one of her toes as he crouched at the end of the bed,” it continued.

“We may be looking at America’s greatest serial rapist that ever got away with this for the longest amount of time,” she continued. “He got away with it because he was hiding behind the image of Cliff Huxtable.”

Kristina Ruehli, Bill Cosby

32. Kristina Ruehli

Date of Alleged Assault – 1965

Date of Accusation – Nov. 24, 2014

Kristina Ruehli was 22 in 1965, the year she alleges Cosby drugged her and began to sexually assault her while she was passed out.

“He must have drugged me. There is just one point at which I was having a drink and feeling normal and the next I was somehow passed out completely,” she told Philadelphia magazine in an interview published on Friday. “He must have slipped something into my drink. I woke up in the bed. I found myself on the bed, and he had his shirt off. He had unzipped his pants. I was just coming to. He was attempting to force me into oral sex. He had his hand on my head. He had his cock out, and he had my head pushed close enough to it — I just remember looking at his stomach hair. And the hair on his chest. I had never seen a black man naked before,” she continued.

“And it never went past that. I immediately came to and was immediately very sick. I pushed myself away and ran to the bathroom and threw up. I was feeling really ill. And I never got sick like that from alcohol, at least not that small of an amount.”

Ruehli said she didn’t speak of the incident for quite awhile because she was embarrassed, but she changed her mind when another accuser came forward.

“I didn’t want to bring it up. I was embarrassed,” she said. “When Andrea Constand brought her lawsuit against Cosby, I decided to come forward to her attorneys. I didn’t think I was damaged, so there wouldn’t be any lawsuit coming from me. I don’t need money or aggravation. I’m very wealthy, so I have nothing to gain. But I wanted to come forward to tell the truth to back up other people.”

I wasn’t pulling back. I was in shock.”

“I reached out, grabbing him, trying to get his attention, trying to distract him,” she said. “He came over to me and sat down on the love seat and opened his fly and grabbed my head and pushed my head down. And then he turned me over. It was like a waking nightmare.” She said she protested, but he did not stop. Valentino said Cosby raped her and then left the scene. She never called the police because she feared they wouldn’t believe her: “What kind of credibility did I have? … In those days, it was always the rape victim who wound up being victimized. You didn’t want to go to the police.”

Carla Ferrigno, wife of “The Incredible Hulk” star Lou Ferrigno called a Los Angeles radio station on Thursday and spoke to “The John and Ken Show.” She claimed a man invited her to go on a double date with Cosby and his wife in 1967, but as the evening progressed the man disappeared and his wife went to bed and left them alone together. She said Cosby grabbed her, pushed himself against her and kissed her on the mouth. She said she pushed him away, but he didn’t let up.

“He came at me again and I just pushed and jumped and ran and I got out of his way and ran out of the hall and this guy was coming out of one of the rooms and I said I want to go home,” she said. “I never said a word to anybody in all these years. Five years ago I started hearing these stories come out, and I remember telling a girlfriend and she didn’t even believe me. It was so ridiculous to her.”

Cosby’s lawyer Marty Singer dismissed her allegations: “This continuation of a pattern of attacks on Mr. Cosby has entered the realm of the ridiculous, with a purported ‘forceful kiss’ at a party in 1967, nearly 50 years ago, being treated as a current ‘news story’ and grossly mischaracterized as ‘sexual assault.’ This is utter nonsense.”

Renita Chaney Hill appeared alongside Cosby during the 1980s in his “Picture Pages” educational videos. He had scouted her when she was just a 15-year-old model and aspiring actress.

Hill spoke to CBS’s Pittsburgh affiliate KDKA about the alleged attacks and told KDKA reporter Ralph Iannotti that Cosby flew her to various cities, including New York and Atlanta. She said she wouldn’t see him during the day, but would go to his hotel room at night. She claimed the comedian gave her drinks she now believes were drugged.

“One time, I remember just before I passed out, I remember him kissing and touching me and I remember the taste of his cigar on his breath, and I didn’t like it,” Hill told KDKA. “I remember another time when I woke up in my bed the next day and he was leaving. He mentioned ‘you should probably lose a little weight.’ I thought that odd, how would he know that?”

Hill said she can’t know for sure if she was raped because she was unconscious. “It just felt weird to me, and I remember being in high school saying to him, ‘I’ll come see you, but I don’t want to drink because it makes me feel funny,’” Hill said. “And he would tell me that if I didn’t drink, I couldn’t come see him.” Hill says she came forward after hearing Cosby’s attorney criticize the other women who have already done so, and she is unapologetic about waiting so long. “No one wants to be associated with something like this, but the bottom line for me is that no one has the right to violate someone else, no matter who they are,” she said. “I don’t care how big they are or how the community sees them, it’s not right.”

“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” actress Michelle Hurd claimed Cosby touched her inappropriately in the mid-90s.

She said their relationship began innocently enough on the set of “The Cosby Show,” with the two of them sitting near each other at lunch. But Hurd said the dynamic soon changed. He did “weird acting exercises [where] he would move his hands up and down my body,” she wrote in a recent Facebook post. “I was instructed to never tell anyone what we did together,” she wrote. “I dodged the ultimate bullet with him when he asked me to come to his house, take a shower so we could blow dry my hair and see what it looked like straightened.”

Hurd declined, but according to her post a friend of hers, who she did not name, didn’t dodge the same bullet. “[The friend] awoke, after being drugged, vomited, and then Cosby told her there’s a cab waiting for you outside,” Hurd wrote.

Florida nurse Therese Serignese told multiple media outlets Cosby had drugged and raped her in 1976, when she was only 19.

“The next memory I have was I was in a bathroom and I was kind of bending forward and he was behind me having sex with me,” she said on Thursday. “I was just there, thinking ‘I’m on drugs, I’m drugged.’ I felt drugged and I was being raped and it was kind of surreal. My frame of mind was that it would be over soon and I could just get out of there.”

Serignese said she told her mother about being raped and drugged, but she says her mom advised her to reach back out to Cosby. She followed her mother’s advice, contacted the comedian and he put her up in the penthouse of a nearby Hilton hotel for about three weeks. Serignese claims all that changed when she had a pregnancy scare, which led to Cosby kicking her out.

She claims the two of them kept in touch for over 20 years, which included another sexual encounter around 1985. “I just tried to forget it. I tried to block it out,” she said. “It doesn’t go away but you can make it silent. You can bury it. But all of these times when this stuff comes up, it does make me angry.”

Janice Dickinson, former “America’s Next Top Model” judge, claimed the comedian sexually assaulted her in 1982.

According to Dickinson, the comedian then dangled the prospect of work in front to her. According to the former model and television personality, Cosby gave her wine and a pill, which caused her to pass out. However, Dickinson claims that she has a recollection of being sexually 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 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.”

Date of Accusation – Nov. 16, 2014 

Former actress, publicist and journalist Joan Tarshis published an essay on Sunday, Nov. 16 claiming Cosby had raped her twice in 1969. Tarshis then spoke with CNN’s Don Lemon on “CNN Tonight” and detailed the encounters, which occurred when she was a teenager and working alongside him. “He made me a drink … and very shortly after that, I passed out,” she told Lemon. “I woke up, or came to very groggily with him removing my underwear.”

Tarshis said has no direct memories of the second alleged rape, which she claimed took place after Cosby invited her to see a show. She claimed it happened after she was once again drugged by Cosby, writing in her initial essay, “I remember feeling very, very stoned and asking his chauffeur to take me back to the car. I was having trouble standing up. The next thing I remember was waking up in his bed back at the Sherry, naked.”

Tarshis told TheWrap she chose now to come forward in part because she wanted “to help the public understand that he’s not Mr. Clean,” and also “because of the other women who were courageous enough before me to venture out and say what was going on…  Every single person who he has allegedly raped has had the same exact pattern,” she continued. “A business connection and then being drugged and then being accosted while they were unconscious. And it’s just so bizarre that that’s his M.O. And everybody was the same age.”

Barbara Bowman

Actress Barbara Bowman wrote a Washington Post op-ed describing her alleged sexual assault at the hands of Cosby, which started in 1985 while she was a teenage actress starring in McDonald commercials.

“[He] brainwashed me into viewing him as a father figure, and then assaulted me multiple times,” she wrote. “In one case, I blacked out after having dinner and one glass of wine at his New York City brownstone, where he had offered to mentor me and discuss the entertainment industry. When I came to, I was in my panties and a man’s t-shirt, and Cosby was looming over me. I’m certain now that he drugged and raped me.”

“When I blacked out at Cosby’s home, there were several staffers with us,” she continued. “My agent, who introduced me to Cosby, had me take a pregnancy test when I returned from my last trip with him. Talent agents, hotel staff, personal assistants and others who knowingly made arrangements for Cosby’s criminal acts or overlooked them should be held equally accountable.”

“I have never received any money from Bill Cosby and have not asked for it,” Bowman added. “I have nothing to gain by continuing to speak out. He can no longer be charged for his crimes against me because the statute of limitations is long past. That is also wrong. There should be no time limits on reporting these crimes, and one of my goals is to call for legislation to that end.”

And I’m sitting there going, ‘Oh my God. Where am I?’ What’s going on? I was so out of it. It was just awful.” She initially filed court documents under the  pseudonym Jane Doe No. 5, but now she has gone public. “I want to support Andrea [Constand],” she said. “And I want to support Tamara. I want Bill Cosby to know I’m not afraid of him and that what he did to me was wrong.”
