Beverly Johnson "Not Surprised" By Bill Cosby Admission: "Eventually It Was Going to Come to Light"

Johnson appeared on 'Today' Wednesday to promote her upcoming book, which contains a chapter about her scary run-in with Cosby roughly 30 years ago.

Former supermodel Beverly Johnson, who claims Bill Cosby drugged her in the 1980s, isn't surprised by Cosby's admission that he purchased drugs to use on women, saying, "I knew ... eventually it was going to come to light."

Johnson appeared on Today Wednesday to promote her upcoming book, The Face That Changed It All, which contains a chapter about her run-in with Cosby roughly 30 years ago.

According to Johnson, 62, Cosby insisted she drink a cappuccino he made for her and "after the first sip, the room began to spin." Johnson is now sure she was drugged.

"I was woozy," she told Hoda Kotb. "I took another sip and it just increased from there."

Johnson then described how she screamed at Cosby when she believed she'd been drugged and Cosby decided to drag her out of his house rather than assault her. "I got louder and louder calling him this name and he just decided, let me get this woman out of here."

Kotb asked Johnson if she was surprised by Cosby's admission in a 2005 deposition that he purchased quaaludes and other drugs to give to women for sex.

"I wasn't surprised at all," Johnson replies. "I knew that after 49 women have come forward and told their story, a story that was similar to mine, that eventually it was going to come to light. I wasn't surprised. I'm just very happy for the victims that they have some peace and validation."
