Singer Lisa Gentile Accuses Actor Chris Noth Of Sexual Assault

Singer Lisa Gentile is the fourth woman to accuse Chris Noth of sexual assault.

Throughout December, the Sex and the City actor has already faced allegations of sexual assault from three women, who used pseudonyms, but the singer-songwriter has identified herself publicly at a press conference in New York with her lawyer Gloria Allred. 

Gentile stated that she met Noth in the late ’90s when they were both regulars at the same Manhattan restaurant. In 2002, he allegedly offered her a ride home and asked to see her apartment. After drinking some wine, the singer claims the actor leaned her against the kitchen counter and tried to force himself on her stating:

“He was slobbering all over me, and I quickly became uncomfortable. He became more aggressive, put both hands on my breasts and began squeezing them very hard over my shirt,” adding that he then allegedly put his hands under her top. “I kept pushing his hands down while he was pushing mine up. I was trying to get him to stop. Then he pushed my hands down toward his penis.” Gentile alleged that after she pushed him away, he “became extremely angry and started screaming and calling me a tease and a b**ch” before storming out of her apartment. 

Gentile claimed that Noth called her the following day and threatened to ruin her career if she told anyone about their encounter, and said:

“He warned me that if I ever told a soul about what happened the night before that he would ruin my career, that I would never sing again and that he would blacklist me in the business,” she claimed at the press conference. “I’m speaking out now in support of the other women who have come forward. I feel we should have our day in court to hold him accountable. I was afraid to come forward because of Mr Noth’s power and his threats to ruin my career.”

Noth, now 67, has yet to respond to Gentile’s allegations though he’s already called the claims from the first two women “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,” he stated. “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.”
