Model Beverly Johnson is sharing her Bill Cosby story.

It happened in the “mid-80s,” she says in a first person essay in Vanity Fair. And it sounds similar to many of the stories we’ve heard from women who have been accusing the star of drugging them and then sexually assaulting them.

Johnson starts by recalling being “in awe” of Cosby in the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s.

“He was funny, smart, and even elegant—all those wonderful things many white Americans didn’t associate with people of color.”

She was thrilled when one day an agent called her to invite her to audition for a role on The Cosby Show. She went to a taping and met Cosby. He invited her to his home. She had one pleasant visit and he invited her to come over again.

That next time didn’t go as smoothly.
