Katherine McKee, the former girlfriend of the late legendary Sammy Davis Jr. has come forward to claim that Bill Cosby raped her in a hotel room in Michigan in the early 1970s. The actress and casting director opened up in a video interview and described the alleged incident.
The 65-year-old Katherine McKee is yet another accuser to come forward and go public with allegations against the comedy legend. While not well known in her own right, her former association with the late legendary crooner Sammy Davis Jr. of Rat Pack fame has drawn notice. It is, yet another irresistible headline. McKee is also the older sister of actress Lonette McKee.
McKee shared her story, which she has kept secret until now, she says, with the New York Daily News. She explained that at the time, she was on tour with Sammy Davis, Jr. She said, “Back then, I was Sammy’s road wife. He had an open marriage, and we were lovers. That’s how it went.”
She went on to say that Cosby “was a buddy. He knew I was Sammy’s girl.” It was thus under these circumstances upon his request, she got some ribs, Checker Bar-B-Q, a hotspot in the area, and then to go pick him up at his hotel. She went on to say, “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.”
Katherine McKee described the alleged rape, saying that as they both were standing at the door Cosby “pulled my panties down, and just took it.” She went on to say, “It was so fast and so shocking and so unbelievable.”
She went on to note that she never told Davis. She said, “I didn’t want to put that in Sammy’s head.” And she had not told anyone else, she revealed. She went on to add, “I figured, ‘If I don’t think about it, it won’t bother me.’ Of course, with all these women surfacing now, it flushed it out.”
There have been now more than two dozen women who allege that Bill Cosby sexually assaulted them, raped them and/or drugged them. They include legendary supermodel Beverly Johnson and her contemporary and fellow supermodel Janice Dickinson, both of whom have given numerous television interviews. Many of the accusers are not public figures and have retired from or long since left the entertainment business, such as former Playboy bunny P.J. Masten who also claims she knows of a dozen more former Playboy bunnies whom Cosby allegedly sexually assaulted.
