Newly-Released Bill Cosby Deposition Reveals A Slew Of Questionable Quotes

Court documents from 2005 and 2006 find Bill Cosby divulging new details about his sexual encounters.

The details surrounding another Bill Cosby deposition finds the once-beloved comedian in hot water yet again. In a report by The New York Times, 10-year-old court documents find the actor speaking his piece against Andrea Constand, a basketball manager at Cosby’s Temple University alma mater. Constand argued that Cosby drugged and molested her, leading to a round of questioning at the Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Hotel back in 2005 and 2006.

The report describes Cosby as “an unapologetic, cavalier playboy, someone who used a combination of fame, apparent concern and powerful sedatives in a calculated pursuit of young women.” Claiming to have given Constand one and a half Benadryl pills on the night in question, Cosby also offered details regarding keeping the affair from his wife Camille, as well as a conversation with Constand’s mother following the ordeal. He served as Constand’s mentor, describing his role to include “inviting her to my house, talking to her about personal situations dealing with her life, growth, education.”

While denying that he drugged Constand, Cosby also admitted in the latest deposition to procuring Quaaludes with the intentions to have sex with women he gave them to. Revealing seven prescriptions in total, the comedian said he told the doctor they were for back pain, but that he kept the party drug around “just in case.” When confronted by Constand’s mother about their tryst, to which the woman says was unconsented, Cosby implored Constand to “Tell your mother about the orgasm.”

During the deposition, Cosby also discussed sexual relationships with at least five other women, one whom he admitted to inquiring about her father’s cancer in an effort to have sex with her. Thirteen other women contributed anonymous statements. Read a few quotes from Cosby below:

- “I take her hair and I pull it back and I have her face like this,” he said. “And I’m talking to her ...And I talked to her about relaxing, being strong. And I said to her, come in, meaning her body.”

- “I walk her out. She does not look angry. She does not say to me, don’t ever do that again. She doesn’t walk out with an attitude of a huff, because I think that I’m a pretty decent reader of people and their emotions in these romantic sexual things, whatever you want to call them.”

- “I think you’re making light of a very serious situation,” she said, to which Mr. Cosby replied: “That may very well be.”

- “I am a man, the only way you will hear about who I had sex with is from the person I had it with.”
Q:Why is that?
A: “When I was a boy it was a thing that girls used to say, please don’t tell anybody. But it is something that I’ve learned as you grow older that they’re the first people to go and tell somebody after something has happened.”
- Q. Do you know if any of the rendezvous happened in New York City?
 A: "I don’t remember."
Q: How did it end with her?
A: "Stopped calling for rendezvous."
Q: You stopped?
A: "Yes."
Q: Why?
A: "Just moving on."
Q: What does that mean?
A: "Don’t want to see her anymore."

Q. She says that she stayed with you and that you began talking about her career and asking about her father who had died of cancer. Does any of that ring a bell with you?
A: "Yes."
Q: Do you remember talking about that?
A: "Yes."
Q: Do you remember what else you talked about?
A: "That’s enough."
Q: Did you ask her those questions because you wanted to have sexual contact with her
A: "Yes."

- “[The act of sexual intercourse] is something that I feel the woman will succumb to more of a romance and more of a feeling, not love, but it’s deeper than a playful situation.”

- “What was happening at that time was that that was -- Quaaludes happen to be the drug that kids, young people were using to party with and there were times when I wanted to have them just in case.”
Q. Why didn’t you ever take the Quaaludes?
A. “Because I used them.”
Q: For what?
A: “The same as a person would say have a drink.”

- My wife would not know it was because Andrea and I had had sex and that Andrea was now very, very upset and that she decided that she would like to go to school or whatever it is. We can get back on track.

“I think Andrea is a liar and I know she’s a liar because I was there. I was there.”

Nicki Minaj's Boyfriend Kenneth Petty Received 18 Violations During Prison Stint

Nicki Minaj's new boyfriend, Kenneth Petty has a very troubled past.

On Friday (Dec. 14), TMZ revealed court documents disclosing Petty's history of disciplinary actions while he was an inmate in New York for manslaughter from 2006 to 2013.

When he entered the correctional facility, he was reportedly written up for creating a disturbance. Later during his stint, he was hit with a slew of disciplinary actions following a series of violent actions that included fighting, making terroristic threats, and "disobeying a direct order."

In 2009, prison faculty placed him in solitary confinement for four months as part of being reprimanded for nine different violations. Petty lost privileges that included the usage of the inmate telephone service, recreational activity, and the prison canteen.

In addition to his prison violations, Petty is a convicted sex offender. At the age of 16, he was tried as an adult served a four-year sentence for attempted rape of a minor.

Petty, who hails from the same borough as Nicki, Queens, knew the platinum-selling rap star since she was a teenager. They dated for a short period years prior to reuniting.

Minaj posted various photos of her and Petty going on a vacation getaway earlier this month. Sources close to Minaj told the celebrity gossip website that the 36-year-old hip-hop artist is  "happier than she's been in years" with Petty.

Sandy Hook Elementary Evacuates After Bomb Threat On 6th Anniversary Of Mass Shooting

Sandy Hook Elementary School was reportedly forced to evacuate its students and administration on Friday (Dec. 14), after receiving a bomb threat, CNN reports. The incident occurred on the sixth anniversary of the school's tragic mass shooting.

Newtown, Connecticut Police Lt. Aaron Bahamonde stated that the threat didn't appear to be substantial, but they decided to  evacuate the facility as an extra precaution.

Bomb squads reportedly swept the school and surrounding area for explosive devices but did not discover anything on the property. They later concluded that there was no immediate threat. The school administration dismissed students and faculty for the rest of the day however, considering the previous incident.

As previously noted, Sandy Hook endured a horrific mass shooting on Dec. 14, 2012, in which 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children between six and seven years old, as well as six adult, staff members.

Earlier this month, thousands of documents were released about Lanza that revealed his mental state and social status in the years leading up to the shooting.

The shooting is not believed to be in connection to the recent string of bomb scares around the nation that targeted major politicians including the former first families Barack and Michelle Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton.
