Three more women stepped forward Wednesday to accuse comedian Bill Cosby of sexual assault in cases dating back to the 1970s.
Linda Ridgeway Whitedeer, Colleen Hughes, and Eden Tirl announced in the Los Angeles law office of attorney Gloria Allred that they were victimized by Cosby, The Wrap reported
. The formerly revered comedian has now been accused by more than 30 women of slipping them drugs before sexually assaulting them.
The three women gave detailed accounts of what they said occurred, according to The Wrap. Hughes, a former flight attendant, said Cosby flirted with her and asked her to lunch when their plane landed. He then reportedly went to her hotel room so she could shower and change before lunch and, when Hughes got out of the shower, he had ordered champagne. She accused the comedian of handing her champagne and holding her hand, and then she woke up some time later.
“My clothes were thrown all over the room and I felt semen on the small of my back and all over me,” The Wrap quoted Hughes. “Bill obviously did not use a condom and there was no lunch and he was nowhere to be seen.”
Whitedeer reported specifics of what she said happened when she was on a set with Cosby in the 1970s. He forced her to have oral sex with him, she told The Wrap and other media outlets, and she said he referred to her as having been "blessed with his semen as if it was holy water."
Cosby's career has suffered since he has been accused. Although no charges had been filed because of the length of time between the alleged occurrences and the reports, Cosby seemingly was preparing for a court case in Pennsylvania, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported in September.
He was looking for a top defense attorney in the area, apparently out of concerns that a case previously filed against him by Andrea Constand might be reopened.
