Sammy Davis Jr.'s ex-girlfriend Katherine McKee says Bill Cosby raped her

Bill Cosby is on the receiving end of another accusation from a woman who says he raped her in the 1970s.

The latest comes from Katherine McKee, Sammy Davis Jr.'s one-time girlfriend who alleges Cosby raped her in a Michigan hotel room when she was on the road with Davis.

McKee, 65, told The New York Daily News that Cosby asked her to grab some food from a Detroit-area BBQ spot and pick him up at his hotel before heading to a party on a boat.

"He was a buddy. He knew I was Sammy's girl," she said about accepting the invitation.

"I remember I walked in the door, and he had a robe and cap on. He took the ribs from my hands and just grabbed me," McKee said, adding, "He spun me around, pulled my panties down, and just took it. We were still standing at the door when he attacked me. It was so fast and so shocking and so unbelievable."

McGee said she decided not to say anything to anyone -- aside from a couple of close girl friends at the time.

"I figured, 'If I don't think about it, it won't bother me.' Of course, with all these women surfacing now, it flushed it out," McKee told the paper.

McGee, an actress and former Las Vegas showgirl, appeared on "The Bill Cosby Show" in 1971 prior to the alleged attack and "Sanford and Son" in 1972. McKee said she knew Cosby for about eight years before the alleged incident occurred. She later became a Hollywood casting agent.

Several women have come forward in the past month or so alleging that Cosby either drugged and/or sexually assaulted them.

Since then, several venues have canceled his upcoming performances, and Spelman College in Atlanta suspended its endowed professorship with the actor.

His new TV series got scrapped, too. And he stepped down as a member of the board of trustees at Temple University.

Cosby has largely stayed quiet on the matter, but his wife, Camille, recently released a statement backing her husband, saying, "None of us will ever want to be in the position of attacking a victim. But the question should be asked -- who is the victim?"
