Beverly Johnson wasn’t surprised by the revelations about Bill Cosby revealed in the unsealed 2005 court documents about the former comedian.

“Eventually, it was going to come to light, so I wasn’t surprised,” she told Hoda Kotb on “Today” Wednesday. “I’m just very happy for the victims that they have some sense of peace and validation.”

The supermodel claimed Cosby drugged her at his New York residence while she was auditioning for “The Cosby Show” in the 1980s by slipping drugs into her cappuccino.

“After the first sip, the room began to spin,” she said, adding she cursed at him after realizing she’d been drugged, which prompted Cosby to make her leave his home.

The unsealed court documents are a win for women, Johnson feels.

“For me, it’s about women using their voice; we are expected as women to feel voiceless, it was an opportunity for me to use my voice,” she said.
