But Constand said she was returning calls Cosby made to her university-issued cellphone about the basketball team. Before being asked about how she came to meet Cosby, the prosecution asked her to point Cosby out in the courtroom.

Bill Cosby arrives for his sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse.

She said that she had gone to Mr Cosby's house for dinner when he offered her three blue pills which he said were her "friends" and would help her to relax.

"The defense also has phone records that show Constand placing more than 50 calls to Cosby in the months after the alleged incident", the Washington Post reports. "I wanted it to stop", she said.

"The room was dark, and there was a nice mood in the room, correct?" she said. (As Radar readers know, Constand is openly gay). She revealed that they had been in constant touch to discuss about the renovations of several facilities given to the basketball team.

She hopes to show Constand changed her mind about the date of the alleged 2004 assault after reviewing them.

Gianna Constand was defiant in cross-examination, often firing back at defense attorney Angela Agrusa's questioning.

Frazier was accompanied by her husband John Atchison, a celebrity hairstylist whose clients include Cosby and his wife Camille.

Cosby, is now 79 and claims he is blind.

"Whatever you feel", Gianna Constand said, pointedly. "He said, 'I apologize to Andrea and I apologize to you'". He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Bill Cosby's chief accuser Andrea Constand remained calm as she was questioned by one of Cosby's lawyers during day three of the comedian's sex assault case Wednesday.

She lost consciousness, then was jolted awake when she felt Cosby's hand "groping my breasts". Temple is Cosby's alma mater, and he was a powerful trustee there at the time.

Lawyer Gloria Allred has caused a stir during Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial, because her cellphone rang. "He was in a white shirt and trousers", Constand said, slightly annoyed. But she said he kept their next conversation short.

"Your bodies were touching, and you laid there for at least 15 minutes", Agrusa said of the night at Foxwoods, where Cosby had invited her to see him perform.

Bill Cosby walks from the Montgomery County Courthouse during his sexual assault trial, Tuesday, June 6, 2017, in Norristown, Pa. Gianna Constand told the jury that she was distraught to learn what Cosby had done to her daughter.

Cosby's attorneys have alleged 72 calls were placed between the two, with Constand placing 53 of the calls.Constand's testimony will continue in the afternoon with additional cross-examination and re-direct questions from prosecutors.

"As an advocate for women and with my nonprofit the Kamp Kizzy Foundation, which is all about empowerment, self esteem for girls, I don't take these charges lightly".

"You called him on Valentine's Day", Agrusa said. "I said, 'What are they?" She initially told officers she had never been alone with Cosby before the night of the incident and that she had largely cut off contact with him afterward, neither of which was true.

"He was a Temple friend, somebody I trusted".

Shortly after, she told him she had become "frozen" and incapacitated, she testified.

She told the court she felt "really humiliated" after the alleged attack. "I wanted guidance and I wanted to protect myself", Constand explained.

"The fact that he's been such an example, you can't take away from the great that he has done", Pulliam said.

The dramatic scene was more than a dozen years in the making.

Other details of Constand's account also shifted in statements to police and in a deposition during her civil lawsuit in 2005.

Cosby is charged with aggravated indecent assault.

Cosby is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting Constand a.

"I was really scared", Constand said. "It was a lot of confusion putting a lot of dates together". She also has a brother-in-law, who is a Canadian police officer.

Cosby showed his appreciation via Twitter. Through the latter he turned the lives of an upper-middle-class African-American family into a groundbreaking TV sitcom.

The comedian, then one of America's most beloved comedians, was a university trustee and the Philadelphia school's most famous alumnus. In later years, Cosby became somewhat of a public moralizer, speaking out against what he saw as the failings of the African-American community in raising children. This makes Cosby look smaller to the jury. Two jurors are black.

Constand is expected to take the stand again on Wednesday.
