In court documents obtained by the Associated Press, it’s been revealed Bill Cosby admitted to obtaining Quaaludes to give to women for sex.
The lawsuit was filed by former Temple University employee Andrea Constand, who accused him of sexually assaulting her at his home in Pennsylvania in 2004. The docs were unsealed today following a request from the AP. Bill’s lawyers tried to fight the release, claiming their client isn’t a “public” person, but federal judge Eduardo C. Robreno agreed to open them.

In the documents, it’s revealed the actor — who resigned from the university's board of trustees last December — once had seven prescriptions for Quaaludes.
"When you got the quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?" lawyer Dolores M. Troiani asked, according to the papers.
"Yes," the comedian responded.
Bill, who has been accused by more than two-dozen women of sexual assault, testified that he gave Constand three half-pills of Benadryl. Two additional women also testified on Constand’s behalf, claiming they, too, had been given quaaludes.
Back in June, lawyers for the 77-year-old argued the release of these documents would be “embarrassing” for the star.
Bill, who has yet to be charged, settled this case in 2006 on undisclosed terms.
