BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - A Florida woman is accusing Bill Cosby of drugging, then sexually assaulting her.

Therese Serignese is the fourth woman in recent weeks to say Cosby gave her pills that made her feel groggy then forced himself on her sexually. She says she has no proof but claims the attack took place in 1976 when she was 19 years old following a show in Las Vegas.

Serignese says after the alleged rape, she willingly stayed with Cosby in Las Vegas for some time, but could not specify how long or whether the two had sex again during their time together. The two also maintained sporadic contact until 1996.

A Cosby spokesman did not respond to a request for comment.

The 77-year-old television star's attempt at a career comeback has been collapsing in recent days as the abuse allegations resurfaced. This week Netflix said it was postponing a comedy special it had planned with Cosby to air later this month; NBC said it was stopping development of a sitcom with him and TV Land pulled reruns of "The Cosby Show" off the air.
