  • The allegations about Bill Cosby keep coming.

    For decades, Cosby was thought of in glowing terms as a perceptive comedian, upbeat pitchman and genial father figure. His public personality made him more than rich -- it made him a role model, admired for his support of education and his no-nonsense talks on parenting and achievement.

    In recent weeks, that persona has been paired with another, much darker image.

    On Tuesday, the famed comedian and TV star was accused of rape by Janice Dickinson, a former model. In an interview on "Entertainment Tonight," Dickinson claimed Cosby assaulted her in 1982 after the two had dinner in Lake Tahoe.

    Report: Janice Dickinson accuses Bill Cosby of rape

    Former supermodel Janice Dickinson accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault, telling "Entertainment Tonight" in an interview aired on Tuesday that the comedian raped her.

    Dickinson is the latest of a handful of women who have accused Cosby of sexual assault -- allegations the comedian has repeatedly said are untrue. He has never been prosecuted.

    In the interview, Dickinson claims Cosby assaulted her in 1982 after the two had dinner in Lake Tahoe. She alleges he gave her a pill and a glass of red wine shortly before she passed out.

      Bill Cosby accusers face legal limits in U.S., unlike in Canada

      The many women now accusing Bill Cosby of decades-old sexual assaults are unlikely to ever see their cases in U.S. court because the maximum time for starting legal proceedings has passed.

      But legal experts say that if the alleged incidents had occurred in Canada, the accusers would have more "power" to seek criminal charges and launch lawsuits against the 77-year-old comedian.

      For his part, Cosby, who's mired in a scandal that has led to cancellations of some of his appearances and projects, is denying the allegations through his lawyer.

        Bill Cosby says he does not have to 'answer to innuendos': report

        Comedian Bill Cosby spoke out against a wave of sexual assault allegations but told a Florida publication he does not have to "answer to innuendos."

        Cosby, 77, spoke to the newspaper Florida Today on Friday, before performing his comedy routine at a theater in Melbourne, Florida. The comedian has refused to address questions about allegations made by a number of women who said he forced himself on them sexually, with some accusing him of drugging them first.

          Yet another woman has come forward accusing comedian Bill Cosby of sexual assault.

          Judy Huth filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court, claiming sexual battery and infliction of emotional distress during an incident at the Playboy Mansion, according to the documents posted by Radar Online.

          The alleged sexual assault took place in 1974 when Huth was 15 years old.

            Bill Cosby tells heckler 'be careful about drinking around me' at London, Ont., show

            Bill Cosby was forced to confront the allegations that have dogged him for weeks when a heckler in London, Ont., the second stop on a Canadian tour, yelped out that the comedian was a rapist.

            Cosby stood up as the crowd started to boo the man and asked them not to respond.

            "No, no, stop," he said, waving his hands.

            "Shh, no clapping right now. That's all right. Patience."

            The man was removed from the theatre by a police officer while one member of the audience yelled "We love you" to Cosby.

              Bill Cosby charged with felony sexual assault in Pennsylvania

              Bill Cosby was charged on Wednesday with sexually assaulting a woman after plying her with drugs and alcohol in 2004, the only criminal case against a once-beloved entertainer whose father-figure persona has been marred by dozens of similar misconduct accusations.

              A frail-looking Cosby, 78, walking with a cane and accompanied by two lawyers, appeared for his arraignment hours later at a courthouse just outside Philadelphia, where he posted a $1 million bond, turned over his passport and was ordered to avoid any contact with his accuser.

              Smiling and politely thanking District Court Judge Elizabeth McHugh at the end of the brief proceeding, Cosby left the Elkins Park courthouse and was driven to a nearby police precinct to be finger-printed and booked.

                Cosby seeks to block sex assault prosecution in Pennsylvania

                Comedian Bill Cosby on Tuesday sought to derail Pennsylvania prosecutors' effort to make him stand trial on sexual assault charges, contending that a deal reached over a decade ago gave him immunity from prosecution.

                An entertainer who built a career on family-friendly comedy, Cosby now faces accusations from more than 50 women that he sexually assaulted them, often after plying them with drugs and alcohol, in a series of attacks dating to the 1960s.

                Prosecutors late last year charged Cosby, 78, with sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, a former basketball coach at his alma mater Temple University, just days before the statue of limitations to bring charges ran out.
