Bill Cosby’s lawyers have filed a countersuit, which claims that the comedian's 2005 deposition admission to obtaining Quaaludes to give to women he wished to have sex with is being taken out of context.

In a new legal document, Cosby's lawyers denounce the release of the deposition details that were part of a court case, saying that it was ultimately settled and should have been kept private, according to "Entertainment Tonight."

They claim that, in the '05 deposition, the 78-year-old "admitted to nothing more than being one of the many people who introduced Quaaludes into their consensual sex life in the 1970's."

"Quaaludes were a highly popular recreational drug in the 1970s, labeled in slang as 'disco biscuits,' and known for their capacity to increase sexual arousal," the filing reads. "There are countless tales of celebrities, music stars, and wealthy socialites in the 1970s willingly using Quaaludes for recreational purposes and during consensual sex."

Although allegations of Cosby drugging and raping women have dated as far back as 40 years, his wife Camille — who married him in 1964 — has continued to stay by her husband’s side.

On Wednesday Cosby’s lawyer Monique Pressley told "Good Morning America’s" George Stephanopoulos that it is still important that Cosby keep the deposition private, due to the two parties’ agreement that was settled out of court.

"Once those terms are violated, it's the entire agreement that loses its purpose,” Pressley said.

Fans and critics of Bill Crosby continue to take to Twitter to defend or denounce him.
