LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A New York musician on Thursday accused “Sex and the City” actor Chris Noth of getting to know her nearly 20 years ago and threatened to destroy her career if she told her. to anyone about their encounter.
Singer-songwriter Lisa Gentile made the allegations following a Hollywood Reporter story on December 16 that said two women, whose real names were not released, accused Noth of sexual assault in 2004 and 2015.
Noth called those allegations “clearly untrue.”
The actor’s representatives had no comment on Thursday about the allegations from Gentile, who spoke during a press conference about Zoom with attorney Gloria Allred.
Gentile said she met Noth in 1998 at a New York City restaurant they frequented. One night in 2002, the actor invited her home and asked to see her apartment.
She said Noth kissed her, “forced” her to lean against him and started squeezing her breasts. “I grabbed his hand and tried to stop it,” she said.
Gentile said Noth also pushed her hand towards his penis. “I ended up pushing them away and out of his grasp and screaming, ‘No, I don’t want this.’
She said Noth “stepped up” and called her the next day, saying he would “ruin her career” if she told anyone about what happened.
Noth, 67, is known for playing Mr. Big, Sarah Jessica Parker’s romantic partner, Carrie Bradshaw, in the HBO TV series and new sequel “And Just Like That”.
Noth has said that the encounters detailed in The Hollywood Reporter were unanimous and that “didn’t always mean no – that’s the line I didn’t cross”.
Parker and co-stars Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis said in a statement Monday that they were “deeply saddened” to hear of the allegations against Noth.
