Another woman has spoken up claiming to be a sexual assault victim of Bill Cosby, bringing the total of alleged victims to 14.

Joan Tarshis, a music industry publicist and journalist, told Hollywood Elsewhere she was assaulted by Cosby in the late 1960s, something she has never shared publicly before. She decided to talk about the incident because other women have come forward accusing the star.

She said she met the comedian when she was 19 years old, when he was shooting “The Bill Cosby Show.” Tarshis accused the star of drugging her drink and when she awoke, he was undressing her.

“I was sickened by what was happening to me and shocked that this man I had idolized was now raping me. Of course I told no one,” Tarshis wrote for HE, and told of one more incident when he “got me.”

“It took me about 20 years to admit this to anyone. My girlfriend, who was a cartoonist, told me she had heard rumors about Cosby, and believed them. She always thought where there’s smoke there’s fire,” Tarshis wrote. “But during those years as I grew into adulthood, I watched Cosby be praised by everyone from Presidents to Oprah to the Jello Corporation. It all made me ill, knowing first-hand there was something unbalanced about him.”

Other women have come forward in the past few weeks, as well. Tamara Green, 66, said Cosby assaulted her when she was young.

“He is in fact a sexual predator," Green, a retired attorney, told People magazine. "I don't dispute the fact the man has done much good, but he is a flawed man. He's not the fictional Dr. Huxtable or the Jell-O salesman. This is Bill Cosby who for years felt entitled because of his status as a celebrity and because for years he was above the law. And he'll always be a small man because a great man would embrace his faults as well as his talents."

Cosby has refused to comment on the allegations, People said.
