Bill Cosby is keeping quiet as new allegations of sexual assault emerge.

“I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn’t have to answer to innuendos,” the 77-year-old comedian and actor told Florida Todaybackstage at his show Friday night in Melbourne. “People should fact check. People shouldn’t have to go through that and shouldn’t answer to innuendos.”

But more accusations surfaced throughout the weekend:

A former NBC employee said Cosby paid off eight women. Frank Scotti told the New York Daily News that he sent money orders for thousands of dollars to numerous women on Cosby’s behalf and was there when Cosby invited models to his dressing room. “He would tell me to keep the women in there, don’t let anybody in, and it was very obvious what was going on,” said Scotti, 90, in a Daily News video posted Sunday. “When the models used to come, he said, ‘Get rid of everybody, and leave that one there.’ … I got suspicious about it, but I didn’t see it happen.” Scotti eventually quit working with Cosby, “because of the girls.”

A former Playboy Bunny went public with a detailed account of being drugged and raped in 1970. Victoria Valentino told The Washington Post she met Cosby after the death of her young son. The comedian tried to cheer her up, and eventually took her and a friend, Meg Foster, to dinner. Valentino says Cosby fed the women red pills and took them to an apartment, where Foster passed out. “It was very clear to me that he was going to assault her while she was asleep,” said Valentino about her friend. She alleges that Cosby attacked her when she tried to distract him. “It’s very difficult for me to talk about what he did … I can’t hear his name. I can’t see his image on television. You just feel ashamed and dirty, even though you know it wasn’t your fault.”
