Chelsea Handler opened up about an experience involving Bill Cosby in which “he tried to Cosby me,” she said. Billboard reports that the revelation is part of a recent interview with Handler by Esquire. The alleged incident took place about a decade ago.
The report quotes Handler saying: “Oh, I was in Atlantic City playing, doing stand-up, and he was doing stand-up in Atlantic City in the same hotel, and at like three o’clock in the afternoon, someone from the hotel came down and said, ‘Oh, you know, Mr. Cosby would really like to meet you up in his hotel suite.’ And I thought, ‘That’s really weird.’ This was like ten years ago. And I said, ‘That’s really weird. I don’t want to go alone.’ I go, ‘I don’t know him.'”
Handler said she did go up to the comedian’s room, but she brought three men with her.
“Thank God these guys were with me,” she said. “One was filming and one was like a producer; we were filming something — I brought them up with me to his room and thank God I did, because now I know what would’ve happened if I went up there alone.”
Handler concludes: “Yeah, so yeah, he’s guilty.”
