3 more women claim Bill Cosby sexually assaulted them

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Three more women stepped forward today to speak out against Bill Cosby. The women state they have guarded their secrets for decades, and feel that now their stories will be believed.

Linda Kirkpatrick said a 1981 tennis match with the popular star in Las Vegas lead to a backstage invitation and a sip of foul-tasting champagne. The next thing she remembers is lying down with Cosby on top of her kissing her forcefully.

Lynn Neal worked at a Las Vegas health club in 1983.

"He built my trust by pretending to be a friend. He drugged and raped me," she said.

A woman who gives only her first name, "Kacey," said she was an assistant to Cosby's personal appearance agent in 1996.

She said Cosby insisted she take a white pill.

"Next I remember waking up in a bed with Mr. Cosby naked beneath his open robe," she said.

There is no word from Cosby or his representatives as he arrives in Ontario, Canada Wednesday to resume his stint of stage shows.

His former co-star on "The Cosby Show," Phylicia Rashad, is defending him.

"What I said is this is not about the women, this is about something else. This is about the obliteration of legacy," she said in an earlier interview with ABC News.

But the attorney for these women, Gloria Allred, said Rashad should change her tune.

"Phylicia, you should be supporting these women rather than joining Cosby's paid 'attack dogs' who are trying to undermine them in any way that they can," she said.

The women do not seek claims in court, as the statute of limitations has long since expired, but want a face-to-face with Cosby and acknowledgement of his alleged acts.
