Latest Cosby accuser: ‘The truth deserves to be known’

SHARE Latest Cosby accuser: ‘The truth deserves to be known’

Yet another woman has come forward to accuse comedian Bill Cosby of sexual assault. This time it’s Cindra Ladd, a former entertainment industry executive and the wife of film producer Alan Ladd Jr.

In an op-ed posted Monday on The Huffington Post, she alleges that Cosby assaulted her in 1969 after she took a pill that he’d given her to quell a headache.

For more than 45 years I have tried to recall exactly what happened that night, she writes. To this day it remains a blur. I have a vague recollection of feeling like I was floating while walking through Times Square and watching some kind of Japanese samurai movie with him. I don’t remember where the theater was nor very much of the evening. What I do recall, vividly and clearly, is waking up the next morning nude in the bed of his friend’s apartment and seeing Cosby wearing a white terrycloth bathrobe and acting as if there was nothing unusual. It was obvious to me that he had had sex with me. I was horrified, embarrassed and ashamed. There was a mirror above the bed, which shocked me further.

Coming forward after all these years isn’t about money, she writes. It’s simply “the right thing to do.”

Cosby’s lawyer has denounced a string of recent accusations against his client, calling them “unsubstantiated, fantastical stories.”
