A further woman has accused “Sex and the City” and “And Just Like That …” actor Chris Noth of sexually abusing her.

During a digital news meeting Thursday with lawyer Gloria Allred, singer-songwriter Lisa Gentile stated that she and Noth were being acquaintances at Da Marino Ristorante Italiano in New York, and she alleged that he abused her at her condominium immediately after he drove her property in early 2002.

“I was afraid to occur ahead due to the fact of Mr. Noth’s electric power and his threats to wreck my career,” Gentile mentioned. “I’m talking out now in support of the other 4 women of all ages who have courageously arrive ahead right before me. I truly feel that we really should have our day in court to seek to keep Mr. Noth accountable for what he did.”

The New York resident, 49, reported she satisfied Noth in 1998. She alleged that when they arrived at her apartment on a Saturday night time in 2002, Noth asked if he could occur up. When she reported she couldn’t give him everything to drink, she alleged that he said, “that’s OK” and that he just required to see where she lived.

The future day, she mentioned Noth identified as her roommate’s landline “which [was] not beneath my name” and warned her that if she explained to anyone what occurred that he would damage her vocation, she’d never sing once more and that she’d be blacklisted.

Associates for Noth did not remark Thursday on Gentile’s allegations.

The alleged incident had “a really major emotional impact” on Gentile, Allred claimed, but declined to say how it influenced her job.

Allred famous that it is as well late for Gentile “to have accessibility to justice” simply because the statute of limits in New York to file and litigate a lawsuit around her allegations has expired.

Nonetheless, she inspired the stars of “And Just Like That …” to “take motion to discuss out in support” of the Adult Survivors Act in New York to increase the statute and to urge New York Gov. Kathy Hochul to consist of it in her plan agenda.

Noth’s past is becoming scrutinized in the wake of many allegations of sexual assault and misconduct.

The actor, who has been weathering the fallout given that two women went public with assault allegations in the Hollywood Reporter past 7 days, has denied the statements. But that hasn’t halted new allegations towards him, nor has it stopped the world-wide-web from dissecting what he has claimed in the previous.

On Wednesday, Heather Kristin, who labored as a stand-in for “Sex and the City” star Kristin Davis for four seasons, wrote an op-ed in the Unbiased accusing Noth of “toxic” actions whilst working on the comedy. She said she too “felt relief” when Noth’s Mr. Large was killed off in the very first episode of the HBO Max revival this thirty day period.

“The very first time the ‘alpha male’ actor slid his hand down my back and about my butt, I flinched,” Kristin wrote. “I was in my mid-20’s and experienced worked as an excess on motion picture sets for in excess of a 10 years I had never been manhandled. ‘That’s your spot, sweetie,’ Noth explained, inching even nearer.”

Kristin mentioned she tried out her ideal to keep out of his route but felt that Noth’s alleged actions “taught others how to treat” her. Then, about a calendar year later, she stated she stood up for Cynthia Nixon’s stand-in right after a different alleged incident.

“Chris Noth pointed to an additional stand-in and said, ‘I want that just one tied up, gagged and brought to my trailer.’ When he received near me, I balled up my fists, squared my shoulders, and stated, ‘This is my and her house.’ He backed up, radically placing his palms up in the air and claimed, ‘Whoa, there, very little lady!’ He didn’t even know my identify,” she wrote. “I clenched my jaw and did not reply. The crew laughed. But I had had adequate I lastly stood up for myself and for the other stand-in.”

In an short article she previously wrote for the Impartial, Kristin alleged an “alpha male” actor made lewd reviews about Nixon’s stand-in, though she did not identify him at the time. Noth’s workforce has denied her claims.

“Her authentic op-Ed was posted in the spring of final calendar year with no topics named. Now that every person is piling onto Chris Noth, the timing is unquestionably handy to drag him into her ‘recollection’ of gatherings,” a spokesperson for Noth explained in a Thursday statement to The Periods. “Chris denies these allegations and there’s in no way been a single criticism or report about him performing inappropriately on the established of ‘Sex and the City.’”

Noth has because been dropped by his talent company, axed from “The Equalizer” collection and scrubbed from a viral advertisement for Peloton that came out on the heels of his “And Just Like That …” character’s demise.

The reckoning has come in the wake of past Thursday’s report in the Hollywood Reporter that detailed the accounts of two women of all ages — one particular who accused Noth of sexual assault in 2004 and the other who alleged Noth sexually assaulted her in 2015. The two ladies claimed they had been triggered by his return to the HBO Max sequence and all the fanfare that arrived together with it.

The next working day, actor and director Zoe Lister-Jones accused Noth of misconduct on the “Law & Order” set and claimed that he “capitalized on the fantasy that women of all ages thought Mr. Major represented.” By Friday night, the Day-to-day Beast printed allegations designed by a 30-12 months-outdated tech government who alleged that Noth sexually assaulted her in 2010 when she was 18.

“Sex and the City” stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis produced a joint statement Monday expressing that they had been “saddened” by the allegations and that they guidance and commend the ladies who arrived ahead.

Allegations from a restraining get submitted by Noth’s ex-girlfriend Beverly Johnson have also resurfaced. Other individuals highlighted similarities concerning the women’s allegations to Noth’s position in Elizabeth Wood’s 2016 crime drama, “White Girl.”

Noth played predatory, significant-run attorney George in the film, and interviews he gave about the “dark” function have been earning the rounds on the net.

“Well, as published, you gotta do what is on the web site. And eventually I experienced to go to that position, which is a pretty unpleasant position,” Noth informed Esquire. “I assume [Wood] tapped into something, that there’s generally dirty very little secrets in a good deal of men, who, when presented the possibility, will go to a spot they wouldn’t even admit to by themselves probably, when it arrives to sexual intercourse.

“And that is what this man did: took complete edge of a situation and received what he preferred. I assume that exists out there, and I just experienced to go to that hideous location.”
