More Bill Cosby sexual assault drama: Frank Scotti, a 90-year-old former NBC employee, said he stood guard outside Bill Cosby’s dressing room while he entertained “models.” Scotti claims he helped deliver thousands of dollars from the comedian to eight different women.
When Cosby invited young models into his Brooklyn dressing room, the megastar’s pal stood watch outside the door. When the married Cosby sought a Queens apartment for another pretty face, Scotti arranged the deal.
And when the man behind Fat Albert needed cash disbursed to his flock of single female friends — hey, hey, hey — Scotti became the conduit for payments of up to $2,000 a month.
“He had everybody fooled,” said Scotti in an exclusive interview with the Daily News. “Nobody suspected.”
Scotti came forward last week with his insider’s look at Cosby’s womanizing ways during the magical 1984-92 run of “The Cosby Show.”…
The 90-year-old Scotti said he decided to speak as the drumbeat of sexual abuse allegations against Cosby, 77, grew steadily louder. “I felt sorry for the women,” he told The News.
I have no doubt that Bill Cosby engaged in this behavior, but he’s hardly alone and there’s no excuse for this behavior. I am sure many more have similar stories with other celebrities and athletes.
