LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com/AP) — A model who claims Bill Cosby sexually abused her at the Playboy Mansion in 2008 has filed a new lawsuit against the comedian and Playboy founder Hugh Hefner.
Chloe Goins sued Monday, claiming Hefner knew or should have known that Cosby had drugged and sexually abused women and enabled his behavior.
Goins claims Cosby spiked her drink when she attended a party at the Playboy Mansion sometime in 2008 and then assaulted her in a bedroom. Goins’ suit says she doesn’t know the exact date of the incident.
Prosecutors rejected filing a case over her claims in part because they couldn’t corroborate her account.
Goins previously sued Cosby, alleging sexual assault in a federal lawsuit that was dropped in February without explanation. Cosby’s attorneys disputed Goins’ account of the events in that case, claiming Cosby was in New York on the night Goins said she was assaulted at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles.
Messages left with a Playboy spokeswoman seeking comment from Hefner weren’t immediately returned Tuesday.
A message sent to Cosby’s attorney, Monique Pressley, hasn’t been returned.
