Bill Cosby on the third day of his sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania, U.S., June 7, 2017.
He offers to pay for Andrea Constand to attend college, but only if she gets good grades.
At one point, Gianna Constand turned and stared at Cosby, who was leaning back in his chair, with his eyes closed.
"He was a Temple friend, somebody I trusted".
Cosby, who was arrested on December 30, 2015, on three charges of aggravated sexual assault, is free on $100,000 cash bail.
"And I said, 'Promise me you are gonna send me the name of the medication and he said yes". I can barely remember driving down to Pennsylvania last Sunday.
Agrusa and defense lawyer Brian J. McMonagle suggested Andrea Constand gave inconsistent statements to investigators concerning her contact with Cosby before and after the alleged incident and implied her testimony can not be trusted.
She said she didn't tell anyone at the time out of loyalty to the women's basketball team, which she managed.
At the same time, she said, Mr Cosby became more flirtatious and suggestive - grabbing her thigh at his home and attempting to unbutton her trousers another time.
"I was happy to leave", Allred told The Post. Earlier in the week, Cosby was supported by Keshia Knight-Pulliam, who played the youngest daughter, Rudy, on "The Cosby Show". Both Johnson and Constand accepted free comedy tickets for their families from Cosby; they accepted small amounts of money from him, as voluntary reimbursements or gifts.
"It wasn't a romantic time, no", Constand, 44, of Toronto, said of an earlier fireside dinner with Cosby, a trustee at Temple University, where she directed the women's basketball team.

Obviously, talk of " King James" departing Cleveland for the second time is nothing more than calculated speculation now . Murmurs have also begun about James' future in Cleveland , despite the fact that he's signed through 2018.
Around 60 women have publicly accused the Emmy-winning television star and comedian of being a serial sexual predator for decades.
Gianna Constand was defiant in cross-examination, often firing back at defense attorney Angela Agrusa's questioning. Constand hesitated. By her own account, it did seem that she had been generally interested in a career change, though she was looking toward massage therapy, the field she is in now.
In particular, Temple University employee Andrea was having a lot of nightmares, Gianni said, claiming she would wake up screaming and in a sweat.
"You're coming to the man that assaulted you and you're bringing him bath salts?"
"I don't know what that means", answered Constand.
Cosby was joined by his grown-up TV daughter Keshia Knight Pulliam as he arrived at court on Monday (05Jun17), and told reporters, "The man that I've known as a child was amusing and witty and smart and philanthropic and full of advice". It's much easier, in the short term, to pretend everything is fine. I felt humiliated and I felt confused. Women will need quite a bit more collective power for this not to be true.
While problematic, McMonagle's opening statements show that Cosby's case is an opportunity to challenge the myths and narratives about sexual assault that are used to protect perpetrators. Agrusa's defense of Cosby centers around the idea while he admits there was a sexual encounter, that it was consensual, and that for a long time after the events of that night at Cosby's house, he and Constand remained friendly and in touch.
"He called me "mom" throughout the conversation", Gianna stoically told jurors in Montgomery County Court. "Not what I would call sexual contact, ma'am", Constand replied.
"You're wrong", she said firmly when Agrusa suggested that Cosby never confessed to her. She previously testified that Cosby made sexual advances that night, which she said she rebuffed.
The dramatic scene was more than a dozen years in the making. "And I believed he supported numerous athletic programs". "I got very aggressive".
