Unsealed court documents stemming from Bill Cosby's 2005 sexual assault lawsuit show more than just the comedian admitted to giving drugs to women.

Just yesterday, Judge Eduardo C. Robreno released 16 documents pertaining to the case—which was settled out of court—which revealed that Cosby obtained prescription drugs to give to women that he wanted to have sex with.

In this particular case, a former Temple University employee was accusing Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her.

In his deposition, he confirms that he set up a tuition fund through the Plaintiff's mother after he feared that she would either "extort or embarrass" him at the time.

According to court documents, Cosby also explained that he placed conditions on the money, saying that "she would have to prove to me that while she was at said university that she was maintaining a 3.0 [GPA]."

Meanwhile, earlier today Janice Dickinson spoke to Entertainment Tonight in the wake of the latest court documents. Earlier this year, she spoke out with her own account of sexual assault against Cosby and later announced that she was suing for defamation after his attorney's called the allegations "a complete lie."

"Until each and everyone one of the women that have accused Bill Cosby along with myself and a few others that have personally reached out to me that will not come forward due to character victimization—I would like an apology for each and everyone one of us in order for my soul to feel," she said. "I don't feel any 'hip-hop hoorays.'"

Another famous face spoke out, Jill Scott, after originally defending Cosby, on Twitter earlier today with a change of tune.

"About Bill Cosby. Sadly his own testimony offers PROOF of terrible deeds, which is ALL I have ever required to believe the accusations," she wrote. "I stood by a man I respected and loved. I was wrong. It HURTS!!! When you get it ALL right, holla."

After releasing the court documents, Judge Robreno explained his decision to have the Cosby case go public.

"The stark contrast between Bill Cosby, the public moralist and Bill Cosby, the subject of serious allegations concerning improper (and perhaps criminal) conduct is a matter as to which the AP—and by extension the public—has a significant interest."
