LOS ANGELES (AP) -- So far, Bill Cosby has never been charged with a crime -- despite dozens of women coming forward to claim he sexually assaulted them, in some cases after drugging them. That might change, depending on the outcome of what prosecutors in Los Angeles are doing. An official says there is an investigation under way into a model's accusation that Cosby sexually abused her at the Playboy Mansion. Chloe Goins met with detectives back in January -- and said the comedian drugged and accosted her in a bedroom of the Playboy Mansion. Goins says the attack took place in August, 2008. Cosby's lawyer denies the claim, saying Cosby wasn't in Los Angeles at the time.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The fallout continues to spread from the sex assault accusations about Bill Cosby. The University of San Francisco is the latest institute of higher learning to rescind an honorary degree it had given the comedian. The school gave Cosby the degree back in 2012 -- but now says Cosby has acknowledged behavior that is inconsistent with the criteria for a honorary degree. Cosby has acknowledged having extramarital affairs with several women; some of those women have since claimed that he sexually assaulted them.

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) -- So you gotta ask -- what is up with Nicholas Brendon? He's the actor who is best known for his work on the TV series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." But he's starting to become best known for being the guy who gets busted every time you turn around. Police in New York State say he got into an argument with a girlfriend -- and tried to choke her out. Brendon faces charges of robbery, obstruction of breathing and criminal mischief. Brendon has been arrested multiple times over the past year, including busts for public intoxication in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, causing property damage at a Florida hotel and another arrest in Florida, this one after workers said he didn't pay his hotel bill.


NEW YORK (AP) -- There's a whole generation of entertainment fans who might not know that Will Smith was a rap star before he got into acting. He's doing a little somethin'-somethin' to reintroduce people to the fact that he spit rhymes other than the "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" theme. He teamed up with the Colombian band Bomba Estereo on a song called "Fiesta." Smith raps in both English and Spanish on the tune, which is out as a digital release today. He also will be in the video for the remix.


SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) -- Jane Fonda's ranch in northern New Mexico has finally sold after going on the market more than a year ago. A real estate company says Fonda's Forked Lightning Ranch just north of Santa Fe has a buyer. No details about the sale are available. The original listing price was $19.5 million.
