Woman Claims Bill Cosby Drugged Her, Licked Her Toes in 2008
The sexual assault allegedly happened within California’s statute of limitations for filing criminal charges
A new sexual assault claim against Bill Cosby has surfaced from a woman who said she was drugged at the Playboy Mansion and woke to find the comedian licking and kissing her toes. The attack allegedly happened in 2008, which puts the claim within California’s statute of limitations for criminal charges.
Chloe Goins told the Daily Mail she plans to make a full statement to Los Angeles police. An LAPD representative could not be reached for comment.
Goins said she was 18 years old when she attended a party with a girlfriend at the famous Los Angeles home of Hugh Hefner. There, Goins said Hefner introduced the women to Cosby, who engaged them in conversation and allegedly gave them drinks.
“I wasn't really supposed to drink because of my age, but I was like, okay, cool. I thought I'd got a drink on the side,” Goins told the newspaper, then “everything kind of went a little foggy, I started feeling sick to my stomach and just dizzy.”
Goins said Cosby escorted her to one of the mansion’s many bedrooms so she could rest, but she does not remember entering the bedroom. Goins said her next memory was waking up “butt naked” on a bed with a half-naked Cosby hunched over her, licking her toes and pleasuring himself.
“I came to and remember seeing this big man crouched over me. It was Bill Cosby, and he was at my feet, kind of licking and kissing them and I think he bit my toe as that's what woke me up,” Goins told the Daily Mail.
Cosby allegedly jumped up, pulled up his pants and left the room. Goins said she believed Cosby had groped her body and licked her breasts.
More than 20 women have publicly claimed the comedian drugged and/or sexually assaulted them over a period spanning several decades. One of those women has filed a police report and lawsuit in Los Angeles against Cosby, alleging he assaulted her at the Playboy Mansion in 1974, when she was 15 years old.
Cosby’s lawyer, Martin Singer, has denied the women’s claims and questioned the accusers' credibility. Singer did not respond to a request for comment on Goins’ claim.
Cosby has remained mostly silent about the allegations, though he commented in an interview over the weekend that the “black media” should remain “neutral” on the charges against him.
On Monday, Cosby's wife, Camille, issued a statement defending her husband as “the man you thought you knew.”
