Bill Cosby was a rat who stalked prey in his own pack, a former girlfriend of Sammy Davis Jr. says.
Katherine McKee alleges Cosby raped her in a Michigan hotel room in the early 1970s when she was on tour with Davis.
She joins more than 20 other women who have accused the comedian known as “America’s Dad” of sexual assault.
McKee, an actress and former Vegas showgirl, said she partied regularly with Davis’ notorious Rat Pack in the late 1960s and had known Cosby for eight years when the alleged assault took place.
“Back then, I was Sammy’s road wife. He had an open marriage, and we were lovers. That’s how it went,” McKee told the Daily News, talking about the alleged sexual assault for the first time.
She said Cosby ambushed her out of the blue one night after she decided to extend her stay around a Detroit gig so she could visit family. Cosby was in town too and invited her to a party on a boat, she said.
“He was a buddy. He knew I was Sammy’s girl,” she said about accepting the invitation.
McKee, now 65, said Cosby asked her to get some ribs from local hotspot Checker Bar-B-Q and then pick him up at his hotel.
“I remember I walked in the door, and he had a robe and cap on. He took the ribs from my hands and just grabbed me,” McKee said of Cosby.
