Bill Cosby Scandal: Latest Alleged Rape Victim Claims She Was Just 15 When Cosby Drugged Her
As Bill Cosby faces even more allegations of sexual abuse against young women, mainly from the 1980s, the latest victim to come forward with claims of foul play says she was only 15 when she was drugged and possibly raped by Cosby.
Renita Chaney Hill, who co-starred alongside America’s favorite daddy in his Picture Pages educational videos, claims she was a minor at the time she was molested by Bill Cosby. If this was the case, then Cosby may be looking at pedophilia charges on top of numerous claims of raping women “of age.”
At that time, Cosby was at the height of his career as NBC’s The Cosby Show was beamed throughout American households for nearly a decade, from 1984 to 1992.
For the Picture Pages segments, which started on a local Pittsburgh children’s TV show, Cosby was looking for local talent, and Hill was perfect for the role as she was young, an aspiring actress, and came highly recommended from a modeling agency.
Hill spoke to KDKA at the end of last week about the rape allegations against Bill Cosby, telling reporter Ralph Iannotti that she seldom saw Cosby during the day but visited his hotel room only at night.
Even though she was only 15-years-old, Hill accepted the late night invitations to Cosby’s hotel rooms and even accepted alcohol from him, which she claims was spiked with a date rape-type drug, which made her fall asleep.
As she told reporters, “One time, I remember just before I passed out, I remember him kissing and touching me and I remember the taste of his cigar on his breath, and I didn’t like it. I remember another time when I woke up in my bed the next day and he was leaving. He mentioned you should probably lose a little weight. I thought that odd, how would he know that?”
According to Hill, she can’t know for sure whether or not she was actually raped by Cosby as she was unconscious.
“It just felt weird to me, and I remember being in high school saying to him, ‘I’ll come see you, but I don’t want to drink because it makes me feel funny,’ and he would tell me that if I didn’t drink, I couldn’t come see him.”
Bill Cosby’s latest alleged rape victim says she has no problem with the fact it took her decades to come forward with the serious allegations, saying she decided to do so only when other alleged victims came forward.
“No one wants to be associated with something like this, but the bottom line for me is that no one has the right to violate someone else, no matter who they are. I don’t care how big they are or how the community sees them, it’s not right.”
For his part, Bill Cosby is denying the numerous rape allegations leveled against him, telling Florida Today, “I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn’t have to answer to innuendos. People should fact check. People shouldn’t have to go through that and shouldn’t answer to innuendos.”
