New York - Bill Cosby says he paid women after having sex with them and went to great lengths to hide his behaviour and the payments from his wife.
The New York Times reported the revelations on Saturday after obtaining a copy of a transcript from a deposition Cosby gave a decade ago.
The 78-year-old comedian was testifying under oath in a lawsuit by a former Temple University employee, Andrea Constand, who says he molested her.
He says he offered to pay for Constand's education and had paid other women after they had sex with him.
He also admits he funnelled money to some of the women through his agent so his wife wouldn't find out.
During the questioning, he says he was a good reader of women and called Constand a liar.
