The tornado of accusations has been bearing down on the 77-year-old funnyman, coming from at least 17 women who knew him during various stages of his career.
Cosby acknowledged the growing storm, but remained hunkered down.
“I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn’t have to answer to innuendos,” he told a Florida newspaper at his show Friday (Nov. 21) in Melbourne, Fla. “People should fact check. People shouldn’t have to go through that and shouldn’t answer to innuendos.”
In another damning wave of accusations, Frank Scotti, a former NBC employee, told The New York Daily News, that he was charged with sending money orders, sometimes exceeding several thousand dollars, to women at Cosby’s orders. He also witnessed Cosby inviting women 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, who is now 90.
“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.”
