He also questioned her about her various phone calls to Cosby in the days after she was assaulted and laid special stress on the fact she called Cosby twice on Valentine's Day.
The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done. Then one day, younger Constand called her mother and said she was assaulted by Cosby. Prosecutors in his retrial were allowed to seek tetimony from as many as five other women who claim Cosby also drugged and assaulted them. She says he described their sexual encounter and apologized for his behavior. Meanwhile, Cosby's victim-blaming lawyers tried their utmost to discredit her story and tried to cast her as a gold digger and an opportunist.
The 80-year-old comedian is charged with drugging and molesting Andrea Constand.
Bill Cosby's chief accuser is off the witness stand at his suburban Philadelphia sexual-assault retrial after more than seven hours. Bliss also said Cosby did not admit any guilt in the call that Constand had recorded.
Constand, who has accused the comedian of drugging and sexually assaulting her in his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004 while she was sports director at his alma mater, Temple University, will again be cross-examined today.
"You never talked to anyone about this case after he paid you all of those millions of dollars?"
Cosby has denied all accusations against him.
On Monday, Constand testified she didn't "recall ever having a conversation with" Jackson. Both worked at Temple University around the time Constand says Cosby drugged and molested her at his suburban Philadelphia home.
When asked about the $3 million settlement between her daughter and Cosby, Gianna Constand said she did not know how much money was involved until she read about it in a newspaper. During cross-examination, Constand struggled to remember why she'd sent them but said she was only trying to help out a friend.
Mesereau's cross-examination of Constand, which ended Monday, reflected this change in strategy.
Constand is one of dozens of women who have accused Cosby of drugging and then assaulting them - but she is the only one whose allegation became the focus of a criminal charge.
Andrea Constand said under cross-examination Monday that her phone calls to Cosby were about basketball.
Constand said she may have been mistaken, that there were times Cosby told her in advance that the gate would be open and that she often reached him at another number.
Constand says she felt a duty to answer Cosby's inquiries since he was an alumnus and trustee.
"They said they'd drop the charges, if I don't come back to the courthouse", Rochelle could be overheard saying. "And, I believe things are only going to get worse, because more people are beginning to realize that this judge and the prosecutors seem to be working together with the goal of taking Cosby down".
At last year's trial, Cosby's lawyers suggested that Constand and the former "Cosby Show" star were lovers who'd been intimate with each other in the past. He says the encounter was consensual. The testimony was also included at his first trial, which ended with a hung jury a year ago.
Bill Cosby, centre, and his spokesman Andrew Wyatt, right, proceed toward the courtroom at the Montgomery County Courthouse, in Norristown, Pa., on April 17, 2018. Mr Thomas Mesereau, a lawyer for Cosby asked as she reviewed the records.
As lawyers argued about phrasing in the corner, Constand, in a muted peach-toned jacket, closed her own eyes, breathing in and out as she waited. Another line of attack centered on her involvement in a Ponzi scheme.
Andrea Constand faces more defense questions on Monday, and Cosby lawyer Tom Mesereau is scouring a binder full of her police statements and prior testimony for inconsistencies.
Ms Constand told the court that she does not know Marguerite Jackson - a woman who the defence plan to call as a witness as part of their attempt to discredit her.
