Three of Bill Cosby's Accusers Detail Their Sexual Abuse in a Press Conference

Three women accusing Bill Cosby of sexual assault – Helen Hayes, Beth Ferrier and “Chelan” – gave a press conference today with lawyer Gloria Allred to detail their accusations and propose a settlement price.

WARNING: Some details from the press conference are graphic.

“I laid down. He laid down next to me on the bed and began pinching my left nipple and humping my leg while he was grunting,” Chelan, who was 17 at the time, said. “13 to 16 hours later I woke up by hearing Mr. Cosby clapping his hands and saying, ‘Daddy says wake up.’” He gave me $1,500.”

Ms. Ferrier also opened up about what happened back in the 1980s when she attended one of his shows and he gave her coffee. “The next thing I knew, hours passed and I woke up in the back of my car alone. My clothes were a mess; my bra was undone. My car was in the alleyway behind the venue. I felt disoriented. I had no idea what happened to me.”

Ms. Hayes said she met Bill at a tennis tournament in the 70s with her friends. “We felt we were safe. But then when he found us in the last restaurant he approached me from behind and reached over my shoulder and grabbed my right breast … his behavior was like that of a predator,” she detailed.

Meanwhile, Bill just broke his silence on Twitter today to thank his supporters.

    I actually can’t remember the last time I felt so let down by something. I loved the Cosby Show as a kid and still watched re-runs to this day because it always reminded me of what was good and simple in life. Always admired and respected him. So disappointed to learn what he was (likely) up to all that time.

    I just like to say I grew up watching The Cosby Show and I just loved the positive messages in each episode and how it taught you the ups and downs of life. To see Mr. Cosby going through this terrible trial in his late age is just horrible. Mr. Cosby is not only a pillar in his community but he gives back to all communities. Mr.Cosby still is a great person in my book , and I just pray that God keeps him and Mrs. Cosby and their family in good health during these trials and tribulations. GOD bless you Mr. Cosby you are a comedic genius and a legend.
