Bill Cosby's Original Accuser Andrea Constand Calls Him a 'Narcissist' Who Missed Cues That She's Gay

July 28, 2015

 

The attorney for Andrea Constand, the first woman whose sexual abuse allegations against Bill Cosby went public a decade ago, has filed a new motion in federal court denying Constand violated their confidentiality agreement after a 2006 settlement and denying she consented to being drugged and sexually assaulted by him.

In the filing, attorney Dolores Troiani slams Cosby as a narcissist who didn’t realize Constand (who was in a relationship with a woman at the time of the alleged assault) is gay.

“In his narcissistic view of the world, defendant believes that plaintiff’s every Tweet must be about him,” Troiani wrote. “He is as perceptive in this belief as he claims to be in his interpretation of non-verbal cues from women he wants to seduce.

“As defendant admits in his deposition, despite his talent for interpreting female reactions to him, he did not realize plaintiff was gay until the police told him,” she wrote.

Constand, who worked at Temple University, first contacted police in January 2005, claiming Cosby drugged her and forced her to touch him intimately. After Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce L. Castor Jr. declined to file criminal charges against Cosby, Constand filed a civil suit and settled in October 2006. The settlement came with a confidentiality agreement. CLICK FOR MORE
