Bill Cosby sues model Beverly Johnson for defamation

Comedian Bill Cosby is suing Beverly Johnson, saying the model defamed him by accusing him of sexual assault in his home.

Johnson is among more than 50 women to come forward in the past year with claims that Cosby drugged, and in numerous cases, sexually assaulted them — in incidents dating back decades.

She’s the eighth accuser Cosby has filed suit against this month.

According to court documents filed in LA Superior Court, Cosby’s suit says he never spent time alone with Johnson at his home.

It charges Johnson with intentionally inflicting emotional distress and asks for an injunction requiring Johnson to retract her public statements AND remove a chapter on him from her memoir.

Cosby’s also demanding a jury trial.

The comedian — best known for his role in the 1980s sitcom “The Cosby Show” — has repeatedly denied wrongdoing and has never been criminally charged.

Many of the alleged incidents occurred decades ago and so the statute of limitations for prosecuting them expired long ago.
