PHILADELPHIA, PA - Court documents now show that comedian Bill Cosby has admitted to buying quaaludes with the intent of giving them to women he wanted to have sex with.

In a deposition taken in 2005, Cosby said he obtained seven prescriptions for quaaludes.

According to court documents obtained by the Associated Press, Cosby was asked: "When you got the quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use those quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?"

The answer: "Yes."

Cosby ended up settling that case for an undisclosed amount of money. Over the years, at least a dozen women have accused Cosby of sexually assaulting them.

He's never been criminally charged.

Cosby reruns pulled from Bounce TV, Centric following new revelations

Bounce TV, an Atlanta-based African-American network, announced on Tuesday that it would immediately pull reruns of "Cosby," the Bill Cosby sitcom that ran from 1996 to 2000.

At the same time, Centric, a BET-owned network, will be yanking all "Cosby Show" episodes from its schedule beginning tomorrow "until further notice," according to a company spokesman.

The moves follow new revelations on Monday about Cosby using prescription Quaaludes to give to women he wanted to have sex with, according to newly released court documents.

Cosby has been hit with numouers allegations of sexual assault since November as multiple women have come forward to accuse the comedian.

The accusations have caused a public and led to Cosby earlier losing projects with Netflix and NBC. The TV star also saw multiple stand-up tour dates canceled due to the controversy.

Cosby has repeatedly denied the allegations and has never been charged with any crime.

"Cosby," which starred the famed comedian and his ex-"Cosby Show" co-star Phylicia Rashad, was aired during Bounce TV's daytime lineup.

The network is available in more than 85 million homes across 90 markets and is the #2 most-watched African-American network behind BET.

Since the scandal broke last year, many networks like TV Land have pulled reruns starring Cosby.

Hulu currently has episodes of "The Cosby Show" available for subscription streaming on its website. Hulu has not responded to a request for comment about the Cosby episodes.
