  • Model Janice Dickinson tells jury Bill Cosby raped her in 1982: 'I wanted to punch him in the face'

The test showed Stallone wasn't the father, Dickinson said, adding, "Thank God!"

Television personality Janice Dickinson helped Pennsylvania prosecutors on Thursday build their case that Bill Cosby's assault of Andrea Constand fits the comedian's decades-long history as a sexual predator.

Cosby settled a civil suit with Constand in 2006, but since then dozens more women have come forward with similar allegations against the once-beloved TV star, including Dickinson and fellow '80s supermodel Beverly Johnson. The ex-model is the best known of 60 women who have accused Cosby of sexual misdeeds.

During her testimony, Cosby sat hunched over at the end of the defense table.

On day four of Cosby's retrial, the prosecution wrapped testimony from five other accusers - in addition to Constand - allowed to give evidence in what experts say presents a gargantuan hurdle for the defence.

"I told her Mr. Cosby had sexually violated me, that he had given me three blue pills and he had sexually violated me without my consent", Constand testified.

The former model says she was 27 when Cosby invited her to Lake Tahoe to talk about how she could expand her career into singing and acting. But he asked whether she'd be willing to fly economy.

"I had been", she explained.

Under cross-examination, Dickinson said her memoir's account of that night was "all a fabrication" for a paycheck.

During dinner with Cosby and his musical director at Cosby's hotel on the California side of the lake, Dickinson said she complained of menstrual cramps and that Cosby produced a little blue pill for her to take.

"I wanted to punch him in the face", Dickinson told the court.

Dickinson has also written several books, including Everything About Me Is Fake.And I'm ideal and No Lifeguard on Duty, and taken up photography.

"These women proved that they were here to back up their sister - they got their sister's back", Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt said outside court.

"After a very short time on the telephone with my mom there, he eventually apologised for doing what he did, but he would not tell us what he gave me", she said. "Here was "rsquo & the us;s Dad" on very top me personallypersonally, a married guy with five kids, and very, very inappropriate it was", Dickinson stated.

"He smelled like cigars and espresso and his body odour", Dickinson said.

Requested what was going via her thoughts, Lasha testified: "Dr. Huxtable would not do that".

Dickinson is one of the most high-profile women who have accused Cosby of sexual assault; 35 women previously shared stories with NY magazine in 2015.

The next morning, Dickinson allegedly awoke with vaginal pain and noticed semen between her legs.

After a failed attempt to confront the entertainer a couple of months later, Constand said she moved back to Ontario, Canada, where she grew up.

"That wasn't cool", she told him. Dickinson did not appear intimidated, instead defiantly chiding him when he challenged her.

Dickinson said that she wanted that the book's segments on her rape and gave this information but publisher Judith Regan overruled its own use.

Sylvester Stallone greets a crowd as he walks to the Rocky statue at the Philadelphia Art Museum for a photo op with Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney to promote "Creed II", Friday, April 6, 2018, in Philadelphia.

Dickinson, the only celebrity accuser to testify against Cosby, parried with defense attorneys who seized on discrepancies between her testimony Thursday and what she wrote about their encounter in her 2002 autobiography.

Another former model and aspiring actress, Lublin says she was 23 in 1989 when Cosby prodded her to drink two shots of alcohol in his Las Vegas hotel suite.

"I don't lie, sir", Dickinson said, her voice rising. Fenjves has corroborated this statement, and Dickinson even suggested to Mesereau that he could be called as a witness.

Dickinson is one of five accusers permitted by by Montgomery County Judge Steven O'Neill to tell their stories to the jury in the suburban Philadelphia courtroom.

Dickinson also described the event to the jury as "gross".
