Bill Cosby appears to be embroiled in yet another legal saga, as five women have come forward in a new lawsuit accusing the actor of sexually abusing them. According to TMZ, the court filings show that Bill allegedly took the accusers under his wing and coached them as they attempted to launch a career in Hollywood in the 1980s and 1990s — but instead of assisting them in reaching their full potential, Bill is believed to have had other ideas.
Cindra Ladd, Lili Bernard, Eden Tirl, Jewel Gittens, and Jennifer Thompson all claim that the 85-year-old, who was undoubtedly one of showbiz’s most powerful performers at the time, gave them false promises and then took advantage of them by forcing them to indulge in aggressive sexual acts.

Lili, who participated in an episode of “The Cosby Show” in 1992, claimed in court documents that Bill abused her on several occasions. She claims she was drugged by the Pennsylvania-born celebrity before being raped, and when she awoke in the middle of the altercation, Bill allegedly suffocated her with a pillow.
On another occasion, she described Bill pushing her down a flight of stairs after a violent argument, threatening to ruin her chances of working in Hollywood. She went on to say that he also booted her out of a residence she’s assumed she was staying at with the actor and that she decided not to call the cops because she was terrified of what would happen to her if she did.
Eden Tirl echoed similar sentiments as she recounted her own brushes with Bill, such as being pushed back into his dressing room on the set of “The Cosby Show,” where the room was shut and Bill allegedly placed his penis against her back while whispering into her ear, “This is making love.”
How were men like Epstein, Brian Coffey, Weinstein and Bill Cosby get away with it?

She claims he also placed his hands on her breasts and kissed her neck without her consent – again, she chose not to speak up because of Bill’s powerful stature not only on the program but in entertainment in general.
Bill was infamously sentenced to ten years in jail for his prior sexual assault trial in 2018, but was given early release last year due to a violation on the part of the prosecutors over an immunity bargain previously set in stone by a former district attorney.
Andrew Wyatt, the actor’s representative, tells TMZ that his client is unconcerned about the latest case, adding that the ladies who are suing him are not fresh accusations. Bill feels convinced that he will be vindicated when the case is heard in court.
