Absolutely shocking! Iconic model, Beverly Johnson revealed to ‘Vanity Fair’ that in the mid 80s she met Bill Cosby at his house to run lines for a small part on, ‘The Cosby Show’ where he then proceeded to drug her and pull her down the stairs!
Another star has come forward claiming to be drugged by the once beloved, Bill Cosby, 77. In a new essay for Vanity Fair, supermodel, Beverly Johnson, 62, bravely revealed that she visited Bill in the mid 80s to run lines and that after he gave her a cappuccino, she immediately knew that she had, “been drugged—and drugged good.”
Bill Cosby Drugged Beverly Johnson — Her Shocking Essay
Beverly is so brave for coming forward. The former model revealed to Vanity Fair that in the mid 80s she met Bill and was invited to come and watch the show before auditioning for a small role.
After meeting and talking about the role, Bill then invited Beverly to his home and said that her daughter, Anansa could come along — which she says, “really reeled me in.” After her first visit, she returned again a few days later to read for the part.
At the time of her next visit, she revealed that she was offered a cappuccino and was told to act drunk for the part — something she thought was odd since she would be playing a pregnant woman on the show who was in Bill’s character’s waiting room.
After she told Bill that she doesn’t drink coffee in the late afternoon, “He insisted that his espresso machine was the best model on the market and promised I’d never tasted a cappuccino quite like this one.”
After a few sips, Beverly knew she had been drugged saying, “I knew by the second sip of the drink Cosby had given me that I’d been drugged—and drugged good,” she claims. After leaning into Cosby for support, she asked him: “You are a motherf—er aren’t you?”
Beverly Johnson Claims To Be Dragged Down Stairs By Bill Cosby
After calling him the name repeatedly, she remembers Bill getting very upset. “I recall his seething anger at my tirade and then him grabbing me by my left arm hard and yanking all 110 pounds of me down a bunch of stairs as my high heels clicked and clacked on every step,” she revealed. “I feared my neck was going to break with the force he was using to pull me down those stairs.”
Beverly then said that Bill put her in a cab to go home — although she does not remember getting back to her apartment. A few days after the incident she revealed that she did call the private number that she had been given, but that his wife, Camille answered and said that they were already in bed.
“At a certain moment it became clear that I would be fighting a losing battle with a powerful man so callous he not only drugged me, but he also gave me the number to the bedroom he shared with his wife,” Beverly revealed. “How could I fight someone that boldly arrogant and out of touch? In the end, just like the other women, I had too much to lose to go after Bill Cosby,” she said.
Beverly is not the only supermodel to have come forward — Janice Dickinson bravely came forward with her story in November, 2014 — a move that helped Beverly to also open up. “Over the years I’ve met other women who also claim to have been violated by Cosby. Many are still afraid to speak up,” she said. “I couldn’t sit back and watch the other women be vilified and shamed for something I knew was true.”
