20 August 2015 3:36 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Following last week's allegations against Bill Cosby, two more women have come forward to accuse the comedian of sexual assault. Speaking at a press conference in New York on Thursday alongside attorney Gloria Allred, one woman, identified only as Elizabeth, says Cosby drugged and assaulted her in 1976. Elizabeth says she met Cosby on a flight from New York to L.A. when she was "barely 20" and working as a flight attendant. After he invited her to the Playboy Mansion, Elizabeth says the two went out for dinner at a Japanese restaurant, where she claims he "insisted" that she drink sake. "After that, I was completely in a trancelike state," she says. "I don’t remember how we got to his hotel room. I could barely stand up. I felt like I was going to pass out or get very sick. He made me kneel down. I don’t want to »

Doughnut-Licker Ariana Grande Sees the Largest Jump in Unpopularity of Anyone Who Isn’t Accused of Multiple Sexual Assaults

14 August 2015 7:59 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Q Scores has released its latest polling data on our nation's most loved and hated celebrities, and THR has a handy roundup of the stars whose disapproval ratings jumped the most in the past two years. No surprise, Bill Cosby comes out on top of the list, with Ariana Grande at No. 2. One of them has been accused of dozens of sexual assaults stretching back decades; the other is a young woman who once licked doughnuts and said she hated America. (Dr. Oz, Robin Thicke, and Adrian Peterson rounded out the top five.) Grande saw a 26-point bump in her disapproval rating, while Cosby's jumped 43 points — about twice as much. Neither Cosby nor Grande's overall disapproval ratings came close to those of Kim Kardashian (71 points) or Justin Bieber (63 points). »

3 More Women Accuse Bill Cosby of Sexual Misconduct

12 August 2015 3:50 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In the first new accusations since 35 women appeared on the cover of New York Magazine to tell their stories of being assaulted by Bill Cosby, three more women came forward on Wednesday, bringing the total number of accusers up to nearly 50. In a press conference called by Gloria Allred, the trio told their stories of sexual mistreatment at Cosby's hands. Actress Linda Ridgeway Whitedeer says Cosby assaulted her out of the blue on a film set in 1971, pulling her into an empty room and forcing her to perform oral sex. She says she never came forward out of fear of hurting the career of her ex-husband, who worked at William Morris. Colleen Hughes, a flight attendant in the early '70s, claims Cosby flirted with her on a plane, then asked her out to lunch. Once they were alone in a hotel room together, she says he gave her »

Bill Cosby Mocks College Sexual-Consent Rules in Newly Unearthed Book Passage

7 August 2015 12:33 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Bill Cosby, not a big fan of consent rules? Go figure. The scandal-plagued comedian, who’s recently been besieged by a slew of rape and sexual assault accusations, mocked colleges’ “affirmative consent” rules in a 1999 book aimed at recent college graduates, the Huffington Post reports. In the book, titled “Congratulations! Now What?” Cosby reflects on the positive aspects of graduation — for instance, not being subjected to “campus sex police” who are “ready to charge you with sexual harassment if you put your hand on any woman besides one who had asked you for help in crossing the street.” Also Read: Bill. »

Bill Cosby to Be Deposed on Sexual Assault Allegations in October

5 August 2015 7:23 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Less than a month after a transcript of the comedian's 2005 deposition was made public by the New York Times, Bill Cosby has been ordered by a Los Angeles County judge to testify again — this time, in a case brought forward by Judy Huth, who alleges that Cosby assaulted her at a Playboy Mansion party when she was 15 years old. Cosby was supposed to testify in the case on June 26, but skipped the date, as his lawyers tried to argue that Huth should be deposed first; this request was officially denied Tuesday. “We are pleased that we will now be able to move ahead without further delay on Ms. Huth’s case and we look forward to taking Mr. Cosby’s deposition on October 9, 2015,” Gloria Allred, Huth's lawyer, said in a statement. Huth will then answer questions from Cosby's attorneys on October 15. »

After the past few weeks, Bill Cosby probably isn’t in a hurry to sit down for another deposition. But come October, he’s scheduled to answer more questions in relation to a sexual battery case against him. Cosby has been ordered to sit for a deposition in a case brought by Judy Huth on October 9, Huth’s lawyer, Gloria Allred, said Wednesday. The date was set following months of back-and-forth. Cosby was initially scheduled for June 26. However, Cosby didn’t appear for the deposition, and the scandal-plagued comedian’s attorneys argued that they should be allowed to take Huth’s deposition prior to Cosby. »

How Much Did Bill Cosby’s Agents Know?

5 August 2015 1:46 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

One of the unanswered questions throughout the Bill Cosby scandal has been a larger, structural one about the industry. Who else in Hollywood knew about the alleged sexual assaults? And more specifically, what did Cosby's agents at William Morris know? (Cosby switched to Creative Arts Agency in 2012. They have since dropped him.) Those are the questions at the center of this article by The Hollywood Reporter, which speculates on what one of William Morris's longtime agents, Ton Illius, might have known.Illius, who died in 2011, is a key figure because his name has been brought up twice regarding Cosby's alleged sexual assaults. In the unsealed testimonies from Andrea Constand's 2005 civil suit, Cosby himself admitted to asking Illius to pay $5,000 to one of his alleged victims in 1976. The William Morris agent comes up again when Kacey (a pseudonym) claims she was assaulted by Cosby when she worked »
