Supermodel Janice Dickinson has just come forth with sexual assault allegations against Bill Cosby days after a second accuser went public with her story. Dickinson’s exclusively telling ET she was allegedly sexually assaulted by Cosby in 1982.

The  first time the two met it was over business matters since she was set to get a role on The Cosby Show. She called that meeting uncomfortable and then met with him in Lake Tahoe, during a post rehab stint when he was trying to help with her singing career. He had gone so far as to offer her an opening act position. According to Dickinson, the assault happened during this trip after dinner one night.

Trigger warning for Dickinson’s story of her assault:

Shades of this story were seen in Dickinson’s 2002 autobiography No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World's First Supermodel, but apparently Dickinson was forced to change the story when Cosby and his lawyers intervened. 

Dickinson said, "I'm doing this because it's the right thing to do, and it happened to me, and this is the true story. I believe all the other women." 

These allegations have been stacking up, but now they're likelier to get even more widespread attention given Dickinson's name.

UPDATE: Cosby's lawyer Marty Singer has issued a strong denial of Dickinson's claims. Singer says:

"Janice [Dickinson's] story accusing Bill Cosby of rape is a complete lie. There is documentary proof that Janice Dickinson is fabricating and lying about Bill Cosby.

"The only story she gave 12 years ago in her autobiography as well as her interview with the media was that she refused to sleep with Mr. Cosby and he blew her off. You can confirm with Harper Collins that she never claimed Mr. Cosby raped her, that no attorney representing Bill Cosby tried to kill the story (since there was no such story) and no one tried to prevent anything she wanted to say about Bill Cosby in her book.

She did an interview with the New York Observer in September 2002 entitled 'Interview with the Vamp' completely contradicting her story."
