Leroy Amar gave Cosby seven prescriptions to remedy a sore back, amidst multiple botched plastic surgeries and money troubles.

Bill Cosby admitted ten years ago in a deposition that he gave women drugs for the purpose of sex, but how did he get them?

According to The Washington Post, the transcript notes that the accused comedian received seven prescriptions for Quaaludes from Leroy Amar to remedy a sore back.

Amar, a gynecologist and plastic surgeon, obtained licenses in California, New York and Maryland throughout his troubled career. His California license was revoked after he "engaged in the most serious misconduct" and then later failed to pay fees. After learning of such disciplinary issues, The Maryland medical board placed him on probation. His operation history included multiple botched plastic surgeries which left women with deformed, hardened or uneven breasts.

Later, Amar pleaded guilty to income tax evasion and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, as he owed more than $4 million, with $2.4 million due to the Internal Revenue Service. He died in 2002 at age 71.

However, the deposition also includes Amar's confrontation with Cosby about his actions with Tamara Green, whom the doctor introduced to the comedian and who later accused Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulted her.

The questioning attorney said Amar was infuriated when Green told him that Cosby gave her wine and made her feel "very uncomfortable" by asking her to speak song lyrics directly into his face. "He warned Cosby never to do anything like that again to Green," said the attorney of Amar, though Cosby denied that the events occurred.
