But the renewal of sexual assault claims that have soured TV and other comeback deals for Cosby are undermining the live performances that represent his direct avenue to fans and a semblance of business as usual.

(The Washington Post) – Days after it was revealed comedian Bill Cosby spoke of himself as a master interpreter of women’s desires in a 10-year-old court deposition, one of his alleged victims has pointed out a problem with this theory: She’s gay.

Of the dozens of women who have accused Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting them, Andrea Constand is arguably the most important. Though Cosby — who has not been charged with a crime and denies he has sexually assaulted anyone — is alleged to have raped as early as the 1960s, such allegations weren’t heard by a court until Constand filed suit against Cosby in 2005. The former college basketball player and Temple University employee claimed the comedian drugged and sexually assaulted her in his Pennsylvania home. The suit was settled in 2006; the terms were not disclosed, and the parties were prevented from speaking further about the case by a confidentiality agreement.

But in recent months, as Cosby’s representatives — and, to a much more limited extent, Constand — have spoken to the media, the two sides have been sniping in court motions over how well each is honoring that confidentiality agreement. In a July 21 motion, Cosby said Constand “and her counsel, who have violated the Settlement Agreement, enabling and fomenting negative — and largely inaccurate — publicity.” Among other sins, the comedian’s motion cited two messages from Constand — “Yes!” and “Sir!” — tweeted around the time a court unsealed a deposition in which Cosby said he obtained drugs for women he intended to have sex with.
