In November 2006, one of America's most beloved comedians, Bill Cosby, settled a civil lawsuit with Andrea Constand, 32, a former Temple University employee who claimed Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in his Philadelphia-area mansion in 2004. 13 other witnesses also came forward voluntarily with similar claims, People magazine reported. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed. But this wasn't Cosby's first not-so-funny sex scandal accusation. More than a decade ago, in 1997, Autumn Jackson, then 22, claimed that she was Cosby's illegitimate child from an affair the comedian had with her mother, Shawn Upshaw. Though Cosby admitted to having an affair with Upshaw and cheating on his wife, Camille Cosby, to whom he has been married since 1964, he maintained that Jackson was not his child. Jackson was later convicted on charges of extortion for threatening to take her story to the tabloids unless Cosby paid her $40 million.
