A former model has accused Bill Cosby of drugging her wine before sexually assaulting her, saying he may be the ‘greatest serial rapist that ever got away with it’.
Jewel Allison is the latest in a line of women to come forward, claiming that the comedian spiked her glass of wine during a dinner at his Philadelphia home in the late Eighties before forcing her to touch his genitals.
The revelation comes as another alleged victim of Cosby announced plans to mount a class action lawsuit against the star with at least nine other women.

Speaking about the alleged assault to the New York Daily News, Ms Allison said: ‘We may be looking at America’s greatest serial rapist that ever got away with this for the longest amount of time.
‘He got away with it because he was hiding behind the image of Cliff Huxtable.’
The woman, from Brooklyn, said she was introduced to Cosby by her agent, Sue Charney, who discovered model Janice Dickinson – another of the comedian’s accusers.
Cosby, now 77, was hosting a dinner at his house and Ms Charney told Ms Allison she should go.
Ms Allison said she did not think it was strange that she was the only person there, other than Cosby, as it was her birthday and she believed Ms Charney may have organised the meal as a present.
She recalled Cosby pouring her a glass of vintage wine which did not taste right.
She suddenly felt woozy and sat down on a couch, but Cosby lifted her up and led her to another room, she said.
Ms Allison claimed Cosby grabbed her hand and placed it on his genitals.
‘That was my sexual assault by this comedian,’ she told the Daily News. ‘He turned me around and said, “Let’s get you home”. At the door, he gave me a very hard embrace and a hard kiss.’
She remembers vomiting in the back seat of a cab on the way home. Cosby invited her over again but she declined.

Allison joins at least 17 other women who have now come forward to claim that the TV star attacked them. The allegations date from the 1970s up until 2006.
One accuser said this weekend that she was planning to mount a class action lawsuit against Cosby with as many as nine other women.
Actress Louisa Moritz, who claimed Cosby assaulted her before an appearance on the Tonight Show, told TMZ that she had reached out to other alleged victims to join her legal case.
The 68-year-old star of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest said she was sitting in the green room before her spot on the show in 1971 when Cosby entered the room.
She claimed he implied ‘that he was going to see to it that I will become a major star’ before forcing her to perform oral sex.
Ms Moritz alleged that as Cosby left, after the abuse, he said: ‘Now you don’t want to upset me and the plans for your future, do you?’
Cosby’s lawyer Martin Singer has said branded the stories ‘completely illogical’ and added that the claims are ‘increasingly ridiculous’ and ‘passed the point of absurdity’.
In a statement released on Friday, he said: ‘The new, never-before-heard claims from women who have come forward in the past two weeks with unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40, or even 50 years ago have escalated far past the point of absurdity.

Cosby, now 77, has so far refused to respond to the allegations, which he has labelled ‘innuendo’
‘These brand new claims about alleged decades-old events are becoming increasingly ridiculous, and it is completely illogical that so many people would have said nothing, done nothing, and made no reports to law enforcement or asserted civil claims if they thought they had been assaulted over a span of so many years.’
Cosby himself has refused to respond to ‘innuendo’.
The comedian, who has been performing despite the resurgence of allegations, stayed silent during a radio interview with NPR and pressured the Associated Press not to broadcast an interview where he was asked about the rape allegations.
He was given two standing ovations when he appeared before an enthusiastic audience in Melbourne, Florida, on Friday night. The audience cheered as he walked on the stage and again when he completed his 90-minute performance. Many in the audience even shouted for an encore at the end of the show, but Cosby did not reappear.
On the same day Law & Order: SVU star Michelle Hurd came forward to say that Cosby acted highly inappropriately towards her when she was a stand-in on The Cosby Show, and claimed that she knows of one woman on set who woke up drugged at his apartment.
Ten women have come forward in the last month saying they were attacked by Cosby, with Renita Chaney Hill, Louisa Moritz and Andrea Leslie the latest additions.
Four of the women claim they were teenagers at the time.
One of the accusers is supermodel Janice Dickinson, who claims that during a dinner in 1982 the actor gave her a pill and when she woke up he was on top of her.
Another four ladies; Barbara Bowman, Joan Tarshis, Tamara Green and Therese Serignese have all shared remarkably similar stories in which they claim to have shared a drink or a pill with Cosby and then woken up after or while they say he was sexually assaulting them.
Carla Ferrigno, wife of Incredible Hulk star Lou Ferrigno, also claimed that Cosby tried to attack her during a gathering at his house in 1967.
THE WOMEN WHO SAY THEY WERE ATTACKED BY COSBY
Andrea Constand – A Temple University employee, she claimed in 2006 that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in his Philadelphia-area mansion two years earlier. Cosby eventually settled this suit out of court as the prosecution said they had 13 Jane Does who would testify Cosby did the same to them in the past.
Barbara Bowman – Bowman told MailOnline that Cosby raped and drugged her back in 1985 when she was a 17-year-old aspiring actress. Bowman was one of the 13 Jane Does in the 2006 trial against Cosby.
Joan Tarshis – Tarshis claimed that she was just 19-years-old when Cosby drugged and raped her twice in Hollywood back in 1969 while she was working as a writer for him.
Janice Dickinson – The supermodel (pictured right) said in an interview that Cosby asked her to come to Lake Tahoe and talk about a television role in 1982, but ended up drugging and raping her.
Tamara Green – Green, who first came forward in 2005 told MailOnline that she was an aspiring actress in the 1970s when Cosby gave her pills and pretended to care for her while she had the flu, but instead sexually assaulted her.
Therese Serignese – Also one of the 13 Jane Does, she says she was 19 when Cosby drugged and raped her in Las Vegas after one of his shows.
Louisa Moritz – She accused Cosby of sexual assault, saying he once forced her into oral sex, backstage at The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson in 1971, and implied he would further her career if she went through with it.
Linda Joy Traitz – She said earlier this week that she was just 19 when Cosby drove her out to a beach and tried to get her to take pills to relax, before becoming ‘sexually aggressive’. Traitz, of Hallandale Beach, Florida, has been charged in the past with trafficking pills. Cosby’s attorney, Marty Singer, is trying to use Traitz’s past to discredit her claims against his client.
Beth Ferrier – Beth Ferrier claims she had relationship with Cosby in the mid-1980s. She claims that she awoke in her car with her clothes in disarray and not remembering what had happened. Ferrier has claimed that he drugged her coffee.
Carla Ferrigno – The wife of Incredible Hulk star Lou Ferrigno, claims Cosby tried to sexually assault her during a gathering at his house in 1967. What’s more, Cosby allegedly tried to use a friend to help court Ferrigno, and allegedly made his move on the former Playboy Bunny just moments after his own wife, Camille, left the room.
Angela Leslie – The former model-actress claims that Cosby forced her to masturbate him in his Vegas hotel suite after giving her a strong drink in 1992.
Renita Chainey Hill – The 47-year-old mother-of-three who met Cosby when she was offered a role on Picture Pages in Pittsburgh claimed he would fly her to different cities around the United States and drug her during a four-year relationship.
Kristina Ruehli – A New Hampshire grandmother-of-eight, now 71, claims Cosby invited her back to his house for ‘party’. She arrived and no one was there. Ruehli alleges that he drugged two bourbons he poured her and she came to when he was on top of her, shirtless.
Victoria Valentino – The former Playboy playmate claims Cosby drugged her and a friend, tried to rape her friend then violated her instead in a Hollywood apartment after dinner.
Jewel Allison – The former model accused Cosby of drugging her wine and making her feel his genitals before kissing her during a dinner at his home in the late Eighties.
Michelle Hurd: The 47-year-old actress, best known for her roles on Law & Order: SVU and Gossip Girl, revealed she was a stand-in on the set of The Cosby Show when Cosby started acting inappropriately around her. In a Facebook post this weekend, she described being touched in ways she did not like and being asked to eat lunch with him in his dressing room. Then, things became too much for Hurd. ‘I dodged the ultimate bullet with him when he asked me to come to his house, take a shower so we could blow dry my hair and see what it looked like straightened,’ she says. ‘At that point my own red flags went off and I told him, “No, I’ll just come to work tomorrow with my hair straightened”’.
Joyce Emmons: The former comedy club manager claims she woke up naked next to a friend of Bill Cosby after the comedian gave her a sedative when she complained of a migraine. Joyce Emmons told TMZ that the comedian slipped her Quaalude when she was in his Las Vegas hotel suite in the 1970s. She claims Cosby drugged her but has not accused him of sexual assault.
Lachele Covington: The 20-year-old actress, who’d been an extra on the TV show Cosby, filed a police report in March 2000 against the star, accusing him of making an unwelcome sexual advance.
