Beverly Johnson’sformer talent agent and Hollywood veteran Don Gibble recently did an interview with The Daily Caller and claimed that Johnson and Janice Dickinsonare both lying about their sexual assault allegations against Bill Cosby. Gibble represented Johnson in the early 1990s and also says he personally knew Dickinson for more than twenty years.
According to Gibble, while Johnson told him several stories about Cosby, only one of them involved a private meeting and she never mentioned anything about being drugged or assaulted. In fact, Gibble says the meeting was a pleasant brunch with Bill Cosby and his wife Camille Cosby.
“She said she had brunch with him and his wife, and it was a great experience. And then on ‘The View,’ it flip-flopped,” Gibble said, referring to Johnson’s recent appearance where she was at odds with host,Whoopi Goldberg. “It was odd to me that she changed her story. She said [she was] drugged and raped. I just remember that was not the conversation we had. And we had it repeatedly. It was brunch. It was just one time. It was a typical nice pleasant experience. It can be easily proven that Camille Cosby was at that brunch, so it was kind of dumb for her to lie.”
“When I first met her [Johnson] in the early ’90s I had her make a list of all the producers she had a good experience with so I could call and get her in,” Gibbs told Daily Caller. He says Johnson placed Cosby on that list. He continued, “Basically, she only had a good experience with him, so if he had been producing something at that time I could have easily called that office and gotten her an appointment. It was ridiculous,” Gibble said, referring to watching Johnson change her story on “The View.” “I thought this was insane.”
Beverly Johnson did an exclusive interview with Vanity Fair, where the revealed her sexual assault encounter with Cosby. Johnson claimed Cosby invited her to his home to work on some acting exercises and things got weird after he offered her a drink:
“I knew by the second sip of the drink Cosby had given me that I’d been drugged—and drugged good.
My head became woozy, my speech became slurred, and the room began to spin nonstop. Cosby motioned for me to come over to him as though we were really about to act out the scene. He put his hands around my waist, and I managed to put my hand on his shoulder in order to steady myself.
As I felt my body go completely limp, my brain switched into automatic-survival mode. That meant making sure Cosby understood that I knew exactly what was happening at that very moment.”
Gibble not only said that Beverly wasn’t being honest, but he claimed that former supermodel Janice Dickinson’s claims were also false. Dickinson and Johnson are Cosby’s most prominent accusers and now, both of their stories are being challenged by someone who was also present in the times that these attacks were reported to have happened. Dickinson recently claimed that Cosby drugged her with a pill and raped her in 1982 in a hotel room in Lake Tahoe. However, Gibble says that’s not true. He claims Dickinson said at Hollywood parties “many times” that Cosby made a pass at her in a hotel, which she rejected. Cosby then went to bed without assaulting her, according to Dickinson’s original version of events.

“The next morning I woke up, and I wasn’t wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man,” Dickinson told Entertainment Tonight. “…Before I woke up in the morning, the last thing I remember was Bill Cosby in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe and getting on top of me. And I remember a lot of pain. The next morning I remember waking up with my pajamas off and there was semen in between my legs.”

From the book
“‘Exhausted?’ he asked, and it was clear he was trying hard to keep his temper in check. ‘After all I’ve done for you, that’s what I get? I’m exhausted …. ‘
‘Well gee Bill, if I had known it was going to be like this-’
He waved both hands in front of my face, silencing me. Then he gave me the dirtiest, meanest look in the world, stepped into his suite, and slammed the door in my face.”
To The New York Observer (2002)
“Oh, he’s so sad. He dangled a TV role. And he called me in rehab to come to Tahoe. In rehab! I was shell-shocked, and I’m getting bushels of fruit from Jagger. No one gave a rat’s ass about my sobriety. But you see, that’s the gilded prison of fashion. We’re riding in private jets, and meantime I was so incredibly, painfully sad and lonely. And trying to fill up the vapid hole with sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll.”
