Bill Cosby Accuser Beth Ferrier Joins Gloria Allred’s Teach-In Protest

Just hours before Bill Cosby’s Denver show at Buell Theatre Saturday night, Beth Ferrier joined Gloria Allred’s Teach-In event to share with supporters her allegations that Cosby drugged her and may have sexually assaulted her while she was unconscious.

At Gloria Allred’s Teach-In event held at the Crawford Hotel, just blocks away from Buell Theatre, Ferrier told a packed room that Cosby drugged her when she tried to end the couple’s affair back in the ’80s. Ferrier, who said she first met Bill Cosby in New York City in 1984 after winning a modeling contest, said the pair started a consensual sexual relationship soon after meeting, although both were married. The pair would meet up while he was on tour and she was traveling for modeling jobs. According to Ferrier, the affair lasted almost two years.

“I was as close as anyone could be shy of being married or having a child with him.”

The day Ferrier tried to break it off, she alleges Cosby drugged her by putting something in a cappuccino he prepared for her. Ferrier claimed she did not remember anything until waking up in her car at 3 a.m. She shared these same allegations with People in November, 2014. In that interview, Ferrier admitted she did not know if Cosby assaulted her after slipping drugs in her drink.

“I was definitely drugged. All I had to drink was coffee and the room was spinning. I wondered, I still wonder, ‘What did he do with me? Why was my bra unhooked? What happened?'”

Wanting to confront Cosby about the incident, Ferrier says she went to his hotel room at the Oxford Hotel in Denver. Although the comedian allowed her to come into his room, Ferrier claims he would not speak to her. After an hour-and-a-half, she left his dressing room, never to speak to him again.

According to The Denver Post, Ferrier was Jane Doe No. 5 in the 2005 lawsuit against Bill Cosby. At the Teach-In event, Ferrier again told the story of how much her life changed after she went public with her allegations against Cosby. Family members would no longer speak to her and the modeling gigs dried up. Despite this, she has been able to move on and have a happy life, she said.

Ferrier told the room of attendees she never reported the incident because she knew how powerful Bill Cosby was at the time and feared no one would believe her story.

Gloria Allred is representing seven of the women who have made allegations against Bill Cosby. Allred told the audience at the Teach-In event that these women did not come forward years ago because they were scared they no one would believe their stories and feared being attacked.

After the two-hour long Teach-In event, Allred and attendees left the Crawford Hotel with signs and banners to join in the protest held outside of Buell Theatre.
