Chelsea claims the incident happened about 10 years ago when she and Cosby were both doing stand-up in the same hotel in Atlantic City. She says someone from the hotel told her that Cosby "would really like to meet you up in his hotel suite," at around three o'clock in the afternoon, but she felt uncomfortable meeting him alone.
" ... And I said, That's really weird. I don't want to go alone," Chelsea tells Esquire. "I go, 'I don't know him.' So the three guys I was with -- thank God these guys were with me. One was filming and one was like a producer; we were filming something -- I brought them up with me to his room and thank God I did, because now I know what would've happened if I went up there alone."
She says she forgot about the incident until the allegations against Cosby started getting media attention.
"My friend texted me the other day saying, 'Do you remember that night we went up to, or that afternoon we went up to Bill Cosby's and you were so freaked out you made us come with you?'" Chelsea shares. "And I said, 'Yeah,' and he said, 'Hello! You could've been one of his victims if we weren't there.' And I went, 'Oh my gosh . . .' So yeah, he's guilty. I think it's pretty obvious now."
