Bill Cosby Lawyer Says Janice Dickinson Sexual Assault Allegation Is 'A Lie'

Bill Cosby's lawyer has released a statement saying the sexual assault allegation former model Janice Dickinson's made against his client is "a lie," Variety reports.

"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," Martin Singer said in the statement.

He continued, "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."

Singer then mentioned that Dickinson said she refused to have sexual relations with Cosby and did not mention the rape she recently claimed in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

"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," Singer explained.

He ended the statement saying, "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."

Dickinson is the 15th woman to accuse Cosby of sexual assault. She claimed she was drugged and raped by Cosby. She also mentioned that she only spoke of the incident now because she was afraid of being shamed.

"Stuffing feelings of rape and my unresolved issues with this incident has drove me into a life of trying to hurt myself because I didn't have counsel and I was being afraid," Dickinson said.

She added that she came out in the open because "it's the right thing to do."

After Dickinson went public with her claim, Netflix announced its decision to nix their special show starring the comedian, says The Hollywood Reporter. The show was intended to be part of the online streaming service's Thanksgiving offering and was set to air on November 28.
