In a 2005 sealed court deposition Bill Cosby admitted intent to drug women for sex. Also, Lil Wayne is gearing up to sponsor his “LilWeezyAna Fest” in New Orleans in August. Find out more with today’s edition of "Tha Wire.”

Amid numerous accusations of sexual misconduct over the past decade, it’s now being reported that a sealed court document was released on yesterday (June 8), of  a 2005 deposition where Bill Cosby admitted to giving women Quaaludes in order to have sex with them. In that particular case Cosby was accused of battery and sexual assault against a former Temple University Director of Operations, of which was settled under undisclosed terms back in 2006. The document was opened only after a lawsuit by the Associated Press, said CBS News.

According to the Associated Press, during the 2005 deposition a lawyer asked Cosby and I quote:

“When you got the Quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these Quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?” Said the lawyer.

In which Cosby is said to have answered “Yes.” Cosby’s lawyers detest that he was confused by the question.

Now the seventy seven year old is facing more backlash as the bronze statue of the comedian at the Walt Disney World resort’s Hollywood Studios Park in Lake Buena Vista, FL, has been removed as of Tuesday evening, (July 7), according to WFLA.

BET’S Centric TV and Bounce TV have pulled the Cosby Show and Cosby reruns from their programming schedule. TV Land pulled reruns of the Cosby Show in November of last year, and Netflix has also taken down a comedy special starring the embattled comedian.
