Previously, Chris Noth has been accused of sexual assault by three women in 2004, 2010, and 2015. The accusations got him dropped from his talent agency and the show The Equalizer, and his wife Tara Wilson may be thinking about dropping him too. There’s a new accusation and it’s been brought to us by Gloria Allred who represents the newest alleged victim coming forward, singer Lisa Gentile, who claims Chris attacked her back in 2002.
The And Just Like That… cast has already distanced themselves from Chris and his ads and work opportunities have dried up fast. And it’s getting worse for him. People says that Lisa Gentile first met Chris at Da Marino restaurant in NYC in 1998. Chris was a regular at Da Marino and it’s also the restaurant where his third accuser says he assaulted her. Lisa regularly went to Da Marino back in the day and became friends with Chris. One night in 2002, Lisa says Chris offered to give her a ride home from Da Marino after they hung out and she took him up on his offer. When they got to her place, he asked to come up to her apartment and she told him she didn’t have anything to drink. Chris didn’t care and said he just wanted to see her apartment. While in her apartment, Chris kissed Lisa and then she says it got “uncomfortable” when he aggressively groped her. Lisa kept trying to stop him, but he wouldn’t. She was finally able to push him off and told him NO. Chris got mad, called her a tease and a bitch, and left.
After the alleged attack, Lisa says she woke up her roommate and told her about it. The next morning she got a call from Chris who threatened to “ruin” her career and “blacklist” her from the business if she spoke about it. Lisa says she called her parents crying.
“I was afraid to come forward because of Mr. Noth’s power and his threats to ruin my career. I’m speaking out now in support of the other four women who have courageously come forward before me. I feel that we should have our day in court to seek to hold Mr. Noth accountable for what he did–and also speaking out to ensure the rights of my nieces, my goddaughter and future victims of sexual harassment and assault,” Gentile concluded.
Also, Gloria Allred has called on the stars of AJLT–Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis–to support a new law in New York City aimed at helping victims of abuse:
Allred called upon the three actresses to support the Adult Survivors Act in New York, which “would create a one year look back window for adult survivors of adult sexual abuse to hold those who have sexually victimized them accountable,” she said. “Lisa and I appreciate their words of support for the previous accusers of Chris Noth and now we urge Sarah, Cynthia and Kristin to take action to speak out in support of the Adult Survivors Act as Lisa and I are doing today,” Allred said, after noting that the statute of limitations is up on Gentile’s case, meaning she cannot pursue a criminal case against him.In addition, Allred said Gentile “has not been in touch with the other accusers, and she has not been in touch with the cast of And Just Like That,” adding, “I don’t know if she’s watched And Just Like That but I do know that she did find it upsetting to see him in the news recently and be reminded of what she alleges happened to her. Definitely, it was triggering for Lisa.”
You don’t want smoke from Gloria Allred! The only way this situation can get worse for Chris would be if Ronan Farrow is spending the holidays secretly writing a Mr. Big exposé.
