“With rape allegations against Bill Cosby mounting, supermodel Janice Dickinson tells ‘ET’ in a new interview that the comedian sexually assaulted her in 1982,” according to an article on the website of “Entertainment Tonight.”

The article reports: “Dickinson, now 59, recalls first meeting Cosby, now 77, when her agent set up a meeting with him to hire her for a role on ‘The Cosby Show.’ After they had dinner, she says their next conversation was when he called her out of the blue while she was in rehab for drugs and alcohol. Following her stay in rehab, Dickinson says Cosby reached out to her during a trip to Bali and had her travel to Lake Tahoe, because he was performing there and wanted to offer her the job they had discussed as well as help her with a singing career.”

Dickinson says Cosby gave her a glass of red wine and a pill, and, “‘The next morning I woke up, and I wasn’t wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man,’ she tells ET.”

The article add:s “Dickinson also says she tried to write about the assault in her 2002 autobiography … but claims that when she submitted a draft with her full story to HarperCollins, Cosby and his lawyers pressured her and the publisher to remove the details.”

USA Today, in its article about this story, notes: “Dickinson also called Cosby ‘a bad guy who preys on vulnerable women,’ on the ‘Howard Stern Show’ in 2006.”

The USA Today story adds: “More than a dozen women have now publicly made similar allegations against Cosby. Cosby’s lawyer, John P. Schmitt, dismissed the sexual assault claims as ‘decade-old’ and ‘discredited’ and said, ‘Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment.’ ”
