Scotti worked as a facilities manager at the Brooklyn studio where The Cosby Show was filmed and told the New York Daily News that Cosby had him hand out monthly payments to eight women between 1989 and 1990.
Scotti told the Daily News he believed Cosby was sleeping with the women he was sending money to, but he admits he doesn’t know what happened behind closed doors, Today reported.
Scott also told Today that he’s coming forward now because, as many women have accused Cosby of sexually assaulting them, he felt sorry for them and wanted to speak out in their defense.
“I just felt, you know, he’s not the person I thought he was,” Scotti said.
Cosby’s attorney, Marty Singer, dismissed Scotti’s allegations. “How would Scotti know if a woman was a model or a secretary?” Singer told the Daily News. “It appears that his story is pure speculation so that he can get his 15 minutes of fame.”
Former Playboy playmate Victoria Valentino, who recently came forward to accuse Cosby of sexual assault, also spoke to Today.
Valentino told the Washington Post that Cosby offered her a pill to make her feel better and that he then took her and a friend back to an apartment, where he assaulted her.
She claims that the numerous sexual assault allegations that have been made against the comedian will be how people remember him for years to come.
“He’s been lauded over the years: the PhD, the great family man, his legacy. This is his true legacy,” Valentino told Today.
