Chris Noth Now Also Accused Of 2002 Sexual Assault; Sex And The City Stars Urged To Speak Out For Rape Victims

Chris Noth has today been accused of another sexual assault.

In a virtual press conference hosted by Gloria Allred, singer Lisa Gentile alleges that the Sex and the City star violently laid hands on her in “early 2002” at her New York City apartment. This is the fifth accusation again Noth made over the last two weeks.

Noth “forcibly” turned on acquaintance Gentile in her kitchen with kisses and he was “slobbering all over.” With Noth moving up and inside her shirt, Gentile says “I kept pushing his hands down, while he was pushing his hands up.” As her roommates slept nearby, Gentile yelled “No, I don’t want this” and pushed Noth away, to be “a tease and bitch.”

Noth supposedly stormed out right after that.

Gentile went on to say she told one of her roommates about what happened. Having known Noth for around four years after meeting him at NYC’s Da Marino restaurant, the next day saw the actor telephoning the singer on a roommate’s landline. He warned me “that if I ever told a soul he would ruin my career,” Gentile declared of that brief conversation. (See Gentile’s full statement below)

Dumped by A3 Artists Agency last week and pink slipped from CBS’ The Equalizer in the aftermath of the first accusations against Noth made public from two woman on December 16, Noth has called the decades old claims “categorically false.” Reps for the Mr. Big actor did not respond to request for comment on today’s allegations.

Ex-Law & Order star Noth’s recently retained Lavely & Singer lawyers may have been quiet today, but Allred had a lot to say about Noth and legislation that could dramatically change the way rape and other sex crimes are handled in the Empire State

Pushing for the passage of New York’s statute of limitations busting Adult Survivors Act, Allred told the virtually assembled media that Gentile had several interactions with Noth after the alleged 2002 attack, but she has not spoken to the actor in “a long time.”

“It is too late for her to file a lawsuit and a jury to hear her testimony against Chris Noth, Allred added on Thursday, using Gentile’s case and her lack of legal options as a wedge for legislative action on Adult Survivors Act. The advocating attorney jumped on a December 20 statement of SATC and sequel And Just Like That… stars that they are “deeply saddened” over the claims against Noth and “support the women who have come forward” to urge Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis to do more.

“We urge Sarah, Cynthia and Kristin to take action to speak out in support of the Adult Survivors Act,” Allred said in her very public platform. “We also urge Chris Noth to speak out in support of New York’s Adult Survivors Act,” the lawyer went on to say with the logic that such years old cases can be “resolved in a court of law, not court of public opinion.”

While Noth’s Mr. Big character died of a a Peleton workout induced heart attack in the first episode of And Just Like That.., his presence remains a big part of the  Michael Patrick King executive produced revival, for now
