Bill Cosby is keeping quiet as new allegations of sexual assault emerge.
“I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn’t have to answer to innuendos,” the 77-year-old comedian and actor told Florida Today backstage at his show Friday night in Melbourne. “People should fact check. People shouldn’t have to go through that and shouldn’t answer to innuendos.”
But more accusations surfaced throughout the weekend:
A former NBC employee said Cosby paid off eight women. Frank Scotti told the New York Daily News that he sent money orders for thousands of dollars to numerous women on Cosby’s behalf and was there when Cosby invited models to his dressing room. “He would tell me to keep the women in there, don’t let anybody in, and it was very obvious what was going on,” said Scotti, 90, in a Daily News video posted Sunday. “When the models used to come, he said, ‘Get rid of everybody, and leave that one there.’ … I got suspicious about it, but I didn’t see it happen.” Scotti eventually quit working with Cosby, “because of the girls.”
