Three more women have come forward accusing Bill Cosby of sexual assault, bringing the total number of women to more than 50.
According to NBC News, Sharon Van Ert, Pamela Abeyta and Lisa Christie announced yesterday at a press conference that the actor-comedian had assaulted them in the 1970s and 1980s.
Van Ert said that she blacked out in a car while she was with Cosby. Abeyta, an aspiring model, said that she had sought out Cosby for professional help, but suspects she was drugged after a night out with Cosby and some of his friends when she woke up in his bed. Christie claims that Cosby was a mentor to her in the 1980s until he attempted to force her into a sexual relationship.

The women’s statute of limitations has expired, but their accusations come just days before Cosby is scheduled to give a deposition in one of the pending lawsuits against him.
Cosby hasn’t responded to the new allegations.
