Bill Cosby has battled for months to stem sex assault allegations leveled against him by more than three dozen women. But it now appears the once-storied comedian is nearing an endgame as new evidence mounts supporting their claims.

The latest blow came yesterday when a Canadian woman who was at the center of a 2005 civil suit against him, demanded full release of transcripts from the case.

Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee who filed the original suit, made the charges in a new filing.

She accused Cosby and his lawyers of manipulating the media to cast doubt on the women. They charge that he drugged and assaulted women throughout most of his six-decade career.

She’s asked a federal judge to unseal his entire deposition testimony because he violated a confidentiality agreement, sealing their 2005 case. The case was settled out of court in 2006.

In the most damning revelation to date, a partial transcript of Cosby’s testimony was released in which he admitted giving Quaaludes, a powerful sedative, to young women before having sex with them.

TheImproper first broke the story last November that Cosby’s desire to have sex with unconscious women may stem from a deep-seated psychological condition known as as “sleeping princess syndrome” or medically, “Somnophilia.”

The rare sexual fetish was portrayed in the 2011 movie “Sleeping Beauty,” starring Emily Browning.

Cosby’s admission in court testimony sparked a strong reaction that bolstered his alleged victims’ claims. In one of the most telling moves, Creative Artists Agency (CAA), his long-time agency, revealed that it dropped him as a client months ago, effectively ending his one-man shows.

He’s carried on with his shows, often in the face of protests. On occasion, he has also joked about the allegations. His audiences have been supportive and usually sold out.

Constand said Cosby was asked about other alleged assaults during his testimony. She added that his other alleged victims were entitled to read what he said and used the evidence “in their respective cases” if it’s relevant.

Although the statute of limitations has run out on most of the cases, some of the women have sued Cosby for defamation. At least one criminal case could still be filed.

IM reported in January that Chloe Goins, a model, claimed as an 18-year-old that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her at the Playboy mansion in Los Angeles.

She filed a criminal complaint against the embattled comedian on Jan. 14, and new reports say police are now actively investigating it.

Cosby appears to have painted himself in a corner with his stonwalling, and now that wall appears to be crumbling.
