Dr. Drew testified on behalf of Janice Dickinson in her defamation lawsuit against Bill Cosby. The former supermodel alleges she was slandered by Cosby, who claims she’s lying about being sexually assaulted by him. On Friday, Dr. Drew told a California Superior Court judge that he believes Dickinson is telling the truth about the comedian’s alleged crime.

As Gossip Cop reported, Dickinson came forward in November 2014, claiming Cosby drugged and raped her in 1982. A rep for the comedian publicly called her a “liar,” and in May 2015, she sued Cosby for defamation and inflicting emotional distress for questioning her integrity. Due to the statute of limitations, the former model isn’t able to file a suit against Cosby for the initial alleged assault.

Dr. Drew, who treated Dickinson in 2010 during the filming of “Celebrity Rehab,” served as a character witness and attested that she’s an “overly honest” person who “speaks the truth.” The celebrity doctor added that Dickinson had told him while shooting their TV series that she had been raped by a “prominent celebrity,” but didn’t reveal the name at the time.

Dr. Drew then went on to express that Dickinson’s history of substance abuse has no bearing on whether or not she’s trustworthy. “In my professional opinion, an addict may get clean and sober and become an honest and truthful person,” he said in court. “I believe that has been the case for Ms. Dickinson.”
