Cosby accuser's mom called him before cops

Feb. 8, 2005 at 8:36 AM   |   Comments

HOLLYWOOD, Feb. 8 (UPI) -- The mother of Bill Cosby's accuser asked the comedian for money before she called police, Celebrity Justice reports.

Cosby has been accused of sexual assault by a woman employed by his alma mater. The onetime basketball player at the University of Arizona claims Cosby drugged and then fondled her in January 2004 at his home in Philadelphia.

Cosby has told police that there was a sexual encounter, but that it was consensual.

"Sources tell us that Cosby and his accuser had a cordial relationship throughout 2004, but we're told her mother contacted Cosby last month and complained," said Celebrity Justice Executive Producer Harvey Levin.

"We're told she asked Cosby to help pay for her daughter's education and to generally help her out financially, and this conversation occurred before the accuser ever contacted police."

A representative for Cosby calls the episode a classic shakedown.
