The allegations against Bill Cosby have snowballed since the first report of sexual abuse was made a few months ago, leading some to wonder if at least some of the more than 20 accusers were just “jumping on the bandwagon” for their 15 minutes of fame. Cosby’s attorney has denied some of the accusations, but there has been no proof of his innocence or guilt in what has so far been a “he said, she said” battle between Cosby and the women.
Now it seems as if one of the women may actually be caught in a lie.
The Inquisitr reported earlier in January that 24-year-old model Chloe Goins had come forward and was seeking to file criminal charges against Cosby for allegedly assaulting her during a Midnight Summer’s Dream party at the Playboy Mansion in 2008.
Goins claims that Cosby drugged her by slipping a sedative into her drink. When she began to feel ill, Cosby allegedly took the then 18-year-old model to a bedroom in the mansion where she passed out and later woke up to find him licking and kissing her feet and toes while masturbating.
The model met with Los Angeles police on Wednesday to file an official criminal complaint against Cosby. Her attorney, Spencer Kuvin, told Fox News that the LAPD was taking the charges seriously and would be conducting a full investigation.
Kuvin said he was instructed by the police not to share the evidence Goins presented supporting her allegations.
However, Cosby’s attorney, Marty Singer, told TMZ Friday that Goins is lying, and he has evidence to prove it. The attorney claims to have flight and telephone records for the date of the alleged assault at the California mansion showing that Cosby was in New York City.
In a statement Friday, Singer announced his intention to present the evidence to authorities.
“On Wednesday, Chloe Goins and her attorney publicly accused Bill Cosby of assaulting Ms. Goins in 2008 at the ‘Midsummer Night’s Party’ held at the Playboy Mansion in California.
“The party took place on August 9, 2008. Mr. Cosby was in New York on that date. We will be providing documentary evidence to the appropriate authorities which conclusively establishes Mr. Cosby’s whereabouts on August 9 and for the preceding and succeeding days.”
Kuvin countered Singer’s statement asserting Cosby’s innocence with at statement of his own.
“The press should be asking Mr. Singer if Mr. Cosby was at the mansion at ‘any’ time during the summer of 2008. If he has proof of his whereabouts during that entire summer then we would like to see it. If he is willing to prove it, then I can comment. Otherwise it is just a lawyer talking, which is not evidence.”
TMZ noted that the party was extensively covered by the media, but there are no pictures or mention of Cosby being there — so do you believe Goins is lying?
