Janice Dickinson Takes Stand At Bill Cosby Retrial, Delivers Intense Testimony

But when Dickinson turned from testifying about background information related to her character to the topic of the day - her allegation that Bill Cosby drugged and raped her in 1982 - her jocular manner shifted.

Dickinson testified that she had hoped to pursue a career as a singer and Cosby flew her to Lake Tahoe, an alpine lake resort town which straddles California and Nevada, to meet with a vocal coach.

Cosby's lawyer, who has blasted Constand as a "con artist" who levelled false accusations against the star as part of a scheme to get money from him, began what was expected to be a blistering cross-examination by going through a thick binder of Constand's police statements and prior testimony, pointing out discrepancies between what she said in the past and her testimony Friday.

"For justice", Constand said when asked why she was there, confirming that she settled a $3.38 million civil lawsuit with Cosby 12 years ago.

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand and the other women have done. He says the encounter was consensual. I said, 'What are they?

She says there the pill rendered her immobile and allowed Cosby to rape her.

Dickinson is the fourth witness to testify at Cosby's retrial, to help the prosecution display his allegedly abusive sexual history with women. "I didn't know what was happening", she said.

The criminal charges deal exclusively with Cosby's actions toward Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee who says Cosby drugged and then assaulted her at his home in January 2004.

Cosby's initial trial in the matter ended in a mistrial in July 2017 after the jury was unable to reach a verdict following five days of deliberations.

Led by celebrity attorney Tom Mesereau, the defense team seized on how Dickinson's testimony differs from what she wrote about Cosby in her 2002 autobiography.

The protection has dismissed the opposite girls's testimony as "prosecution by distraction". A former Temple University employee alleges that the entertainer drugged and molested her in 2004 at his home in suburban Philadelphia.

Janice Baker-Kinney leaves the courtroom after testifying against actor and comedian Bill Cosby during the third day of the retrial of his sexual assault case at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania on April 11, 2018.

Dickinson, the former model and TV personality who has called herself the "world's first supermodel", became one of the first women to go public with her allegations against Cosby when she told her story on "Entertainment Tonight" in 2014. Cosby then got on top her, she testified.

And as Cosby headed into the courthouse Thursday, his spokesman, Andrew Wyatt, called them the "supporting cast" to Constand.

Dickinson said she wanted the book's sections about her rape to be complete and honest and gave that information to Fenjves but its use was overruled by publisher Judith Regan.

Prosecutors have been seeking to prove that the man once revered as "America's Dad" was one of Hollywood's biggest predators long before he met Andrea Constand, the chief accuser in his retrial.

The charged rhetoric has irritated Cosby's lawyers, who have lost two bids for a mistrial. Cosby tracked her down to Bali, where she was modeling for an oil company calendar, and asked her to Lake Tahoe "to further talk about my career".

Dickinson testified that Cosby didn't say anything to her about what had happened the next day.

Onetime supermodel Janice Dickinson regaled a courtroom audience on Thursday with a stream of anecdotes from her heyday, everything from partying at Studio 54 to having sex with actor Sylvester Stallone.

Cosby is accused of giving pills to college administrator Constand and assaulting her at his home near Philadelphia. As he tried to introduce himself before cross-examination, she looked at him from the stand, and icily exclaimed, "Good morning, Mr. Mesereau". He read a passage about the night in Lake Tahoe and how the book details Dickinson stopping at the door and never entering the comedian's room. "I did commercial work", she said. "Don't call me a liar", she shot back.
