Bill Cosby Speaks Out About Latest Sexual Assault Claim By Playboy Model

There's just no end to the misery Bill Cosby has either caused others or is dealing with -- or both. The latest woman to come forward and accuse the comedian of sexual assault is Chloe Goins, a young model who is reportedly pursuing criminal charges against Cosby after she says he sexually abused her at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles in 2008. Cosby and his people have spoken in the past and denied all allegations (more than 15 women have come forward) against him -- and it should be noted that he hasn't been tried in a court. But this time, his attorney didn't waste a single second, perhaps because he knows this could seriously hurt Cosby, considering how the statute of limitations is not up on Goins' case. His response to the model's accusations could stop this case before it has a chance to go forward.

Cosby's attorney claims he was NOT at the Playboy Mansion on the night that Goins says he allegedly drugged her at an event and that she woke up and found him standing naked over her. Instead, the actor was reportedly in New York at the time, attorney Martin Singer wrote in a statement.

Singer says he can prove Cosby was in NYC and would present relevant evidence to detectives.

The model says the abuse took place on Aug. 9, 2008 at an event called "Midsummer Night's Dream Party." She does not go into detail about what, exactly, she believes happened to her while she was allegedly blacked out.

More from The Stir: Bill Cosby's Response to Those Sexual Assault Allegations Is Unsettling

Until now, prosecutors have had a difficult time justifying bringing charges against Cosby because most of the women who have come forward claim they were abused in the '70s and '80s. But Goins is reportedly at least the second woman to meet with L.A. detectives to give their stories in recent weeks.

As of right now, this could go either way. It will be interesting to see what evidence Cosby's lawyers produce to prove he wasn't in Los Angeles at the time of the alleged sexual assault.
