Katherine McKee, an ex-girlfriend of singer Sammy Davis, Jr., is the latest in the long line of women who have stepped forward to accuse Bill Cosby of rape. The alleged sexual assault happened in the 1970s, when McKee was still with Sammy Davis, Jr. “Back then, I was Sammy’s road wife,” she said in an interview with the New York Daily News. “He had an open marriage, and we were lovers. That’s how it went.”

The 65-year-old McKee said she knew Cosby for eight years when the attack took place, and that he was a friend to her and Sammy. “He was a buddy. He knew I was Sammy’s girl,” she told the paper. She recounted the incident, recalling how he asked her to buy some ribs at a local barbecue joint before picking him up at his place. They were supposed to go to a party on a boat.
“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,” McKee said. “He spun me around, pulled my panties down, and just took it. We were still standing at the door when he attacked me.”
After the attack, McKee went to the bathroom while Cosby got dressed. She had difficulty processing what happened, saying, “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.”
According to McKee, they still went to the party and Cosby was acting cold toward her the whole time. “To me, there was a different personality involved. He was a different man. It felt like a different person performing that act,” she said in the interview. “Bill was so rude and cold toward me the rest of the night. I thought, ‘When this boat docks, I’m out of here.'”
McKee never told anyone about the incident, not even Sammy. “I didn’t want to put that in Sammy’s head,” she began. “I was mad at my own self for not saying, ‘What the f***?’ Why didn’t I stop it and get him away from me? But it happened too fast. I was absolutely flabbergasted. And I had the guilt. I questioned myself, ‘Why did I go there? Why did I bring him those ribs? Maybe he thought that’s what I wanted too?'”
“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,” McKee told the paper.
