Cosby: I Was Not At The Party Where Model Accused Me Of Drugging Her

Bill Cosby said that he was not even at the Playboy Mansion party where his latest accuser said he drugged and sexually abused her.

“On Wednesday, Chloe Goins and her attorney publicly accused Bill Cosby of assaulting Ms. Goins in 2008 at the ‘Midsummer Night’s Party’ held at the Playboy Mansion in California. The party took place on August 9, 2008. Mr. Cosby was in New York on that date,” Cosby attorney Marty Singer said in a statement provided to The Daily Caller.

“We will be providing documentary evidence to the appropriate authorities which conclusively establishes Mr. Cosby’s whereabouts on August 9th and for the preceding and succeeding days.”

Goins, a model, previously told The Daily Mail that she did not think Cosby sexually assaulted her before she announced this week that she planned to pursue sexual abuse charges against Cosby.

“As for the Daily Mail story, as you well know, what the media reports and what someone says can be two completely different things,” Goins’ attorney Spencer Kuvin told The Daily Caller. “Ms. Goins told the police in excruciating detail the account of what happened that evening, which is very similar to the stories told by over 25 other women. She was drugged, stripped naked while unconscious and licked over her body by a man without her consent. What would you call that if it happened to your mother or daughter? It is up to the States Attorney and the LAPD to decide what, if any, criminal charges will be filed.”

Goins was arrested in 2011 for soliciting prostitution in Las Vegas.

“Does a false arrest cast any doubt on someone’s explanation of a sexual assault? No. If you look at that information, and not simply the ‘media’ report, you will find that it was a completely improper arrest and absolutely no charges were ever filed because the officer made a mistake,” Kuvin told TheDC. “A police officer can arrest anyone, for anything, any time. But if they don’t have any evidence or basis for the arrest, they have to let the person go without filing charges. Which is exactly what they did in my client’s case, so please be careful how you report that ‘arrest.’ As a result, the only thing to report is an officer that made a mistake and embarrassed my client.”
