Chris Noth is dealing with the fallout of sexual assault accusations after his talent agent dropped him following the stories going public.
The ‘Sex And The City’ star is facing three accusers, who claim they were victims of the legendary actor and his sexual misconduct. Over the weekend, the ‘SATC’ star’s agents at ‘A3 Artists Agency’ fired the actor, even though he was vehemently denied the accusations.
It’s unclear if the company was clear with Noth that the allegations cost him his deal with them, or just let him go.
As we reported, a third accuser just came forward — using the pseudonym ‘Ava’ — who claims she was an 18-year-old hostess inside an NYC restaurant in 2010. The woman claims Noth drunkenly groped her and pulled her onto his lap to touch his private parts.
Chris Noth Dropped By Agency Following Sexual Assault Accusations
At the time, the restaurant featured piano playing and singing, and she recalled, “I cannot remember in detail how many times we spoke, but with great familiarity, one night he told my boss I would sing with him even though I hadn’t filled the restaurant yet.” The alleged victim revealed, he said, “I love Canadian women,’ before pulling her onto his lap and “pressing me onto his erection.”
The woman says she remembers being excited at first to meet the iconic character from ‘Sex And The City’ — saying, “I remember how electrifying his hand, the hand I watched hold Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, felt grabbing me.” In the end, she added, “At first, it felt as though I was the only person in the universe who could hear me saying no. He wasn’t hearing ‘no,’ but he heard me when I said ‘not here’ and convinced him that I would meet him somewhere else.”
‘SATC’ Star Denies Sexual Assault Accusations
The third accuser went public on the heels of two other assault accusations from 2004 and 2015. The actor did not deny the accusations, instead claims the encounters were consensual.
Chris Noth, who plays Mr. Big on the popular show, broke his silence on the situation, saying, “The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false. These stories could’ve been from 30 years ago or 30 days ago — no always means no — that is a line I did not cross. The encounters were consensual. It’s difficult not to question the timing of these stories coming out. I don’t know for certain why they are surfacing now, but I do know this: I did not assault these women.”
Chris Noth: It’s A Complete Fabrication
Unfortunately, the promotion around the reboot of ‘Sex And The City’ sparked horrible memories for the alleged victims who decided to go public with their respective stories.
The actor defended himself against the third accusation claiming it is a complete lie. “The story is a complete fabrication, and the alleged accounts detailed throughout reading like a piece of bad fiction,” a spokesperson for the actor said. Adding, “As Chris stated yesterday, he has and would never cross that line.”
