According to the latest Bill Cosby accuser, Katherine McKee, the comedian raped her in a Michigan hotel room in the 1970s when she was on tour with Sammy Davis, Jr.
In an exclusive interview, McKee tells New York Daily News that Bill Cosby was “a rat who stalked prey in his own pack.”
Katherine McKee, now 65, claims in the ’70s, she was Sammy Davis, Jr.’s “road wife.” Although he was legally married, McKee claims Sammy had an open marriage and she was his lover. She would travel with Davis and party with the infamous Rat Pack throughout the ’60s. McKee alleges she had known Cosby for eight years when the alleged rape took place.
According to McKee, one night in Michigan in the 1970s, Bill Cosby invited her to a party on a boat, but asked her to stop by his hotel room first to enjoy some local barbecue before joining the party. McKee did not have any qualms about doing so, as Cosby knew she “was Sammy’s girl.” When she got to Cosby’s room, however, McKee alleges things went wrong.
“I remember I walked in the door, and he had a robe and cap on. He took the ribs from my hands and just grabbed me. He spun me around, pulled my panties down, and just took it. We were still standing at the door when he attacked me. It was so fast and so shocking and so unbelievable. To me, there was a different personality involved. He was a different man. It felt like a different person performing that act.”
McKee says afterwards, she went to the bathroom to compose herself and went to the party with Cosby. McKee claims she never told Sammy Davis, Jr. about the alleged rape and tried to forget the assault.
“I figured if I don’t think about it, it won’t bother me. Of course, with all these women surfacing now, it flushed it out. It was a rape, but it seemed so strange to call it that. We think of rape as a stranger who attacks you in a parking lot. I chalked it up to another powerful person in Hollywood who just felt he could take what he wanted from women.”
Katherine McKee joins more than 20 other women who are accusing Bill Cosby of some form of sexual assault and many allege the assaults included drugging. Just three days ago, a woman known only by the name Lisa, came forward on the Dr. Phil show claiming Cosby drugged her, after which she blacked out for two days and has no idea what happened after she lost consciousness in Cosby’s presence.
Cosby has yet to address publicly any of the women’s allegations. However, the comedian spoke briefly with Page Six earlier this month stating he expects only black media to remain neutral and to confirm that his wife is standing by him.
