PHILADELPHIA — The accuser in the only sex assault case that Bill Cosby has settled is questioning his self-proclaimed ability to “read” women’s cues in sexual situations.

Andrea Constand’s lawyer notes in a court filing Tuesday that Cosby didn’t recognize the Temple University employee he befriended was gay. Court documents show Constand was dating a woman around that time.

The parties in Constand’s 2005 sexual battery case against Cosby now accuse each other of breaking the confidentiality clause.

She accused Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her at his Philadelphia-area home. More than two dozen women have since made similar accusations.

Cosby in his deposition released this month says he considered his relationship with Constand consensual.

He calls himself “a pretty decent reader of people and their emotions in these romantic sexual things.”
