A former fashion model and actress says Bill Cosby made sexual advances and lewd gestures toward her on the set of The Cosby Show.
Helen Gumpel, formerly known as Helen Selby, says Cosby had her sit on a couch in his dressing room, where he handed her a drink then stood in front of her with his crotch in her face.
Gumpel held a news conference in Boston on Sunday. A Cosby spokesman didn’t immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
The 77-year-old entertainer faces sexual assault accusations from at least 15 women. He has denied the allegations and has not been charged.

Also Sunday, Cosby canceled back-to-back comedy shows at the Wilbur Theater where demonstrators threatened to rally.
Police say they don’t think the paparazzi played a role in Bruce Jenner’s crash with 69-year-old Kim Howe, who was fatally wounded Saturday, but are investigating whether Jenner was holding a cellphone during the collision and will look at phone records, the N.Y. Daily News reports. Photos were taken during the collision by paparazzi, who were following Jenner since it was confirmed that the 1976 Olympic decathlon gold medalist planned to become a woman.
If police determine that Jenner, 65, was texting when his Cadillac Escalade rear-ended a white Lexus on Saturday afternoon, he could face vehicular manslaughter charges.
However, if he was smoking a cigarette, eating or talking on his cellphone with a headset, he should get off scot-free, police said.
