Bill Cosby admitted that he bought sedatives to give to women he wanted to have sex with, according to court documents obtained by the Associated Press. In a 2005 deposition, Cosby said that he purchased Quaaludes with sex in mind, and that he used them on at least one woman.

The Associated Press went to court in order to "compel the release of the documents," but according to the AP, Cosby's lawyer had argued they would embarrass the now 77-year-old.

More than 40 women have accused Cosby of sexual assault and rape, from aspiring models in the 1960s, to young actresses on The Cosby Show in the 80s, to a Temple University administrator in 2004. The deposition comes from a lawsuit filed by the Temple university employee. Cosby settled that suit in 2006.

In March, Cosby gave a rambling interview to ABC News and, when asked about his feelings surrounding the allegations, he gave a puzzling answer. "I have been in this business 52 years and I've never seen anything like this. Reality is the situation and I can't speak," he said.

Cosby has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and has never faced criminal charges for any of the alleged assaults.
