Andrea Constand’s Mother Confronts Bill Cosby at Sex Assault Trial

Andrea Constand’s mother testified Wednesday about how she confronted Bill Cosby with the allegation he drugged and molested her daughter — and then tried to get him to discuss it again while she secretly recorded him.

“He admitted he was a sick man,” Gianna Constand testified that Cosby told her during her first phone call with star about the alleged assault.

The comedian’s iconic voice filled the Pennsylvania courtroom where he is on trial for sexual assault as the prosecution played the tape of the second, secretly recorded 2005 conversation between Cosby and Gianna Constand.

Cosby sat stone-faced as he listened, a transcript of the exchange playing on a monitor for the benefit of jurors, who heard him offer to fund Andrea’s education and rebuff the mother’s demand that he reveal what “stuff” he gave her.

“I would be willing to…meet with you guys,” Cosby said. “Lay out what I think is best. Pay for the schooling.”

On the stand where her daughter had spent hours being cross-examined earlier in the day, Gianna Constand came off like Canada’s version of a Steel Magnolia, by turns folksy and fierce.

“The mother instinct kicked into me,” she said of the moment her daughter confided in her about Cosby, who denies assaulting Constand and also denies dozens of accusations of sexual misconduct by other women that have not resulted in criminal charges.

“I said if you don’t give me his phone number I’m going to fly…I’m going to take the next flight out and I’m going to go talk to him.”
