(People) – Janice Dickinson is suing Bill Cosby after the comedian’s team said she lied when accusing him of sexually assaulting her in 1982.
On Wednesday, the supermodel filed a suit against Cosby, 77, for defamation, false light and intentional infliction of emotional distress, according to court papers obtained by PEOPLE. Cosby’s lawyer had no immediate comment.
“Janice Dickinson, like over three dozen other Cosby victims, recently publicly disclosed that she was drugged and raped by Bill Cosby,” Dickinson’s lawyer writes in the complaint. “In retaliation, Cosby, through an attorney, publicly branded her a liar and called her rape disclosure a lie with the intent and effect of revictimizing her and destroying the professional reputation she’s spent decades building.”
Dickinson, 60, came forward with her story last November after decades-old allegations against the comedian resurfaced.
