A new woman is accusing Bill Cosby of sexual assault, claiming the comedian raped her in his Detroit hotel room in the 1970s. Kathy McKee claims she met Cosby in the late 1960s, when she was dating Sammy Davis Jr. McKee had appeared on The Bill Cosby Show and regularly hung out in the same showbiz circles as the comedian. “He was a buddy,” she tells the Daily News. “He knew I was Sammy’s girl.” McKee claims the alleged assault took place after she and Cosby had known each other for eight years. She says Cosby invited her to a boat party and told her to stop by his hotel room with some ribs beforehand. Once she got there, she says, Cosby was “like a different person”: He greeted her in just a robe, took the ribs, and immediately began raping her. “It was so fast and so shocking and so unbelievable,” she told the Daily News. McKee says she racked with guilt over the incident, and never told Davis: “I figured, If I don’t think about it, it won’t bother me. Of course, with all these women surfacing now, it flushed out.”
