Bill Cosby, Hugh Hefner face new sexual battery lawsuit

Bill Cosby and Hugh Hefner have been sued in Los Angeles Superior Court by a dancer who said she went to a party at the Playboy Mansion, accepted a drink from Cosby that she suspects was tainted and woke up naked with her toes in Cosby’s mouth.

Chloe Goins’ lawsuit accuses Cosby and Hefner of sexual battery, gender violence, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress and conspiracy to commit sexual battery.

Goins, 26, says in the suit that she and a friend went to a 2008 party at Hefner’s Playboy Mansion. She is unsure of the exact date. Goins and her friend were introduced to Hefner, then to Cosby, who asked if they wanted a drink. After taking a sip, Goins began to feel ill, the suit says.

"Both Hefner and Cosby saw that Goins was going 'woozy,' and Hefner suggested Goins go and 'lie down' in a bedroom at the mansion. Goins is informed and believes that defendant Cosby put some type of drug or narcotic in the drink," the lawsuit says.

“Cosby escorted Goins to a private room. From that point, Goins ‘blacked out,’ and lost consciousness and does not have any recollection of what happened. Goins awakened some time later, but is unsure how long she was unconscious. She awoke from feeling a sharp pain in one of her toes. When she awoke, she looked at her toes and witnessed Defendant Cosby with one of her toes in his mouth. Goins also noticed she was naked and that she felt a wet and sticky substance on her breasts as though a person had been licking them.

“As Goins witnessed Cosby removing her toes from his mouth, she also saw him stand up and pull up his pants which were previously removed. Cosby then left the room.”

Goins says in the lawsuit that she heeded the advice of a friend, who dissuaded her from calling the police or otherwise going public, “reasoning that if Goins told the police or anyone else, they would never be invited to large, celebrity-filled parties such as Hefner’s again.”

A slew of lawsuits by women who accuse Cosby of sexual impropriety prompted Goins’ legal action, the suit says.
