Jill Scott caught a wave of criticism when she defended Bill Cosby at the height of his sexual assault accusations late last year, but the R&B singer has now pulled her support from the embattled comedian after a 2005 deposition revealed that he did, indeed, drug women with whom he wanted to have sex.

The civil suit filed a decade ago accused Cosby of assaulting a former Temple University employee. During testimony, Cosby admitted to acquiring Quaaludes in the 1970s with the intention of using them on women he planned to have sex with. Cosby told prosecutors he did not, however, give the employee Quaaludes — instead he gave her three half pills of Benadryl.

Two other women who testified on the victim’s behalf said they were knowingly given the now-banned drug.

Shortly after the documents were revealed by the Associated Press, Scott took to Twitter to express “disgust” for a man she once called her mentor.

The comments were a far cry from Scott’s previous defense of Cosby, during which she said she was supporting the “man who has done more for the image of Brown people that almost anyone EVER.”
