Katherine McKee, a former Vegas showgirl and actress who was once a girlfriend of Sammy Davis Jr, alleges that Bill Cosby raped her in the early 1970s while on tour with Davis.

McKee exclusively told the New York Daily News about the sexual assault, which occurred in Detroit when McKee went to pick up Cosby at his hotel to go to a boat party.

“He spun me around, pulled my panties down, and just took it. We were still standing at the door when he attacked me,” McKee told the NY Daily News. “It was so fast and so shocking and so unbelievable.” McKee, now a casting agent, said she never told Davis of the rape, and came forward after numerous allegations surfaced from multiple women who have accused the 77-year old Cosby of sexual misconduct.

Cosby has not directly addressed the allegations head-on, but has issued statements on the media coverage of these allegations, telling Page Six, “Let me say this. I only expect the black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism, and when you do that you have to go in with a neutral mind.”

Cosby’s wife, Camille, and daughter, Evin, have both issued statements defending Cosby.
