Tamara Green was a 19-year-old model when she met Bill Cosby in Los Angeles.
Her story strikingly familiar to other accusers. She alleges, in the 1970s, she was drugged and assaulted by the man who would become America's favorite TV dad, Dr. Huxtable. Cosby and his attorneys have denied the sexual assault claims – he has never been charged with a crime. Due to a health condition, Green did not want to appear on camera. She joined Erin Burnett by phone.
Here are more details:
Name: Tamara Green
Who was: an aspiring model in her early 20s
When alleged events happened: 1970
At the time, Cosby was: starring on "The Bill Cosby Show." A year later, he would start guesting on the children's program "The Electric Company."
The accusation: Green, who later became an attorney, said she met Cosby at a working lunch with several other people. She was suffering from the flu and Cosby "went into some sort of office area at the back of the restaurant and he produced two capsules in his hand," she told the "Today Show's" Matt Lauer. She took the capsules, which at first made her feel "great" and then left her "almost literally face down on the table of this restaurant."
Cosby took her to her apartment and started "groping me and kissing me and touching me and handling me and you know, taking off my clothes," Green said. After telling Cosby "that if he didn't kill me and he tried to rape me, it was going to go very badly," he left two $100 bills on her coffee table and left.
When Green went public, a lawyer for Cosby told "Today," "Miss Green's allegations are absolutely false. Mr. Cosby does not know the name Tamara Green or (maiden name) Tamara Lucier, and the incident she describes did not happen. The fact that she may have repeated this story to others is not corroboration."
When she went public: 2005
