In yet another chapter in the Bill Cosby sex-and-drugging scandal, the Associated Press unearthed court documents showing that Cosby admitted to acquiring drugs to give women for sex.

In 2005 Cosby testified that he got Quaaludes for the sole purpose of giving them to women he wanted to have sex with. The court documents, which Cosby’s attorneys tried to keep sealed, were revealed to AP.


Cosby’s admission came under oath during a lawsuit that was filed by a former Temple University employee. The lawsuit was settled in 2006 for an undisclosed amount of money. During his testimony, Cosby also admitted to giving the accuser three half-pills of Benadryl, an antihistamine that causes drowsiness.

To date, more than two dozen women have accused Cosby of drugging and raping them. Those accusers include celebrities such as Beverly Johnson and Janice Dickinson. Cosby has never been criminally charged because of the statute of limitations.
