A fifth woman accused the actor Chris Noth this Thursday of sexual abuse, popular for his role as Mr Big in the series "Sex and the City ", who in 1995 received a restraining order after threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend.
Last week, two other women accused the actor of two separate incidents that allegedly occurred in 2004 and 2015, the first in Los Angeles and the second in New York, according to an article published by The Hollywood Reporter.
It was the promotion of the new sequel to the cult series called “And Just Like That” that prompted two women whose true identities have not been revealed to come forward and make harsh accusations against the 67-year-old actor.
One of them, nicknamed Zoe, told The Hollywood Reporter that Chris raped her from behind in 2004 after she met him at a high-profile company whose clients were celebrities. Zoe, then 22, claims Chris flirted with her in Los Angeles and invited her to his West Hollywood apartment. After he kissed her, Zoe claimed he attacked her and laughed when she asked him to put a condom in the middle of the attack.
In his response, Noth did not deny the encounters but claimed they were "consensual."
"The accusations against me made by people I knew years, even decades, are categorically false. These stories could have been from 30 years ago or 30 days ago. It does not always mean it's true. That is a line that I did not cross," he said in statements to the CNN news network.
After that publication, a third woman, who spoke anonymously, told The Daily Beast that the actor sexually assaulted her in New York in 2010, when she was 18 and he was 55.
In addition, a substitute actress of the series "Sex and the City" published a letter in The Independent medium in which she assured that Noth's behavior on the set was "indecent" and "toxic" since he harassed the actresses and asked them to get into his dressing room.
The fifth woman who has accused Noth is the singer Lisa Gentile, who recalled at a press conference that in 2002 the actor forced her to have sexual relations and after her refusal began to kiss her and touch her breasts.
"I was trying to stop him," Gentile said.
According to the singer, Noth called the next day to ask her "not to tell anyone about the night before," since doing so would "ruin her career and put her on the industry blacklist."
After the accusations, some netizens have rescued some court documents in which a restraining order was imposed between the actor and his ex-girlfriend, Beverly Johnson, who claimed that he had threatened to kill her and physically assaulted her in 1995.
For their part, the stars of "Sex And The City", Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, lamented the accusations of sexual abuse against their co-star and supported the alleged victims in a statement.
The actresses have come together again to premiere "And Just Like That ...", a series that serves as a continuation of "Sex And the City" and in which Noth's character dies in the first episode, shot long before the accusations came to light.
Also, the agency that represented the actor has ended his contract and the series in which he is currently taking part, "The Equalizer", will no longer have his presence in new episodes, confirmed the CBS network.
