In an interview with the DailyNews, Frank Scotti says he helped Cosby pay multiple women off, buy a model a home and stood out of his dressing when he brought women backstage.
“I was suspicious that something was going on. I suspected that he was having sex with them because the other person he was sending money to Thompson (a woman whose daughter, Autumn Jackson claimed the actor was her dad) he was definitely having sex with.
“Why else would he be sending money?” Scotti asked. “He was sending these women $2,000 a month. What else could I think?”
“I did a lot of crazy things for him,” recalled Scotti. “He was covering himself by having my name on it. It was a coverup. I realized it later.”
Scotti decided to come forward with his story because “felt sorry for the women.”
