The sexual assault talk against Chris Noth is not ending anytime soon as another alleged victim has come forward with accusations launched against the actor.
This is now the fourth woman to have accused the “Sex and the City” actor of being sexually inappropriate or abusive.
Singer Lisa Gentile Accuses Chris Noth Of Sexual Assault
As reported by Page Six, a singer named Lisa Gentile is the fourth woman who accused Noth of sexual abuse. Gentile was joined by her lawyer Gloria Allred at a press conference when she recalled an alleged incident with the actor from 2002.
She claimed that Noth sexually accosted her and interacted with her inappropriately in her apartment after driving her home from Da Marino restaurant in Midtown. Gentile alleged during the press conference:
I was afraid to come forward because Mr. Noth’s power and his threats to ruin my career.
Gentile recalled that she had known Noth since 1998 as he was friends with the restaurant owner and a regular customer. On the fateful night the alleged assault occurred, Gentile noted that Noth offered to give her a ride.
Upon getting to her house, he asked to come in to see her apartment. “I told him I had nothing to offer him to drink. And he said, ‘That’s okay.’ He just wanted to see where I lived,” Gentile shared.
Once in her apartment, Noth allegedly got forceful with Gentile and began touching her inappropriately against her wishes. “Then he leaned against the kitchen countertop and forcibly pulled me against him. He was slobbering all over me. I quickly became uncomfortable,” she mentioned.

She Says Noth Threatened Her Career
Gentile mentioned that Noth became aggressive and guided her hands towards his genitals angrily before she managed to escape his grip. The “Law and Order” star began screaming at Gentile’s reaction and called her “a tease and a bitch.”
A day after the encounter, Noth allegedly called Gentile on her roommate’s phone and threatened her. “He warned me that if I ever told a soul about what happened the night before, that he would ruin my career . . . And that he would blacklist me in the business.”
At the end of the press conference, Gentile expressed her desire to meet Noth in court and “hold him accountable” for what he allegedly did to her. Noth hasn’t publicly denied nor confirmed Gentile’s allegations against him.
As you might know, Noth got involved in a nasty sexual assault scandal when two anonymous women told The Hollywood Reporter of separate incidents in 2004 and 2015 involving the actor.
Shortly after the first two accusers came forward, a third woman, actress Zoe Lister-Jones spoke out against the actor.
Noth’s Marriage Is Suffering Amid The Allegations
Following the levied accusations, Noth’s career has taken a major nosedive. He was fired from “The Equalizer,” and his famous Peloton ad with Ryan Reynolds was pulled. Also, a deal to sell his tequila brand was cut short.
However, Noth’s career isn’t the only thing suffering from the controversy. The actor’s marriage to his wife Tara Wilson is reportedly “hanging by a thread.”
As we reported, Wilson is making their kids her utmost priority at the moment and has been spotted publicly without her wedding ring.
