Lisa Gentile has become the fifth woman this month to come forward with allegations to say that she was abused sexually by Sex and the City’s actor Chris Noth.

This was made known at a press conference with her attorney Gloria Allred. The singer and songwriter stated she was “sexually victimized” and “sexually abused” by Noth in 2002. She alleged that Noth roughly grabbed her, kissed her and touched her breasts.

She said, “I was trying to get him to stop.”

A day after the event, Gentile insists Noth called her and threatened her saying that if she “ever told a soul about what happened the night before, that he would ruin my career, I would never sing again and he would blacklist me in the business.”

Gentile explains during Thursday’s press conference that she first met Noth in 1998 at the restaurant Da Marino in the theatre district of New York City. The former Sex and the City actor was a regular at the hotel and she was friends with the owner.

She and Noth became acquaintances and would chat about the industry. One night in early 2002, Noth offered her a ride home from the restaurant, which she accepted, based on their friendly nature. She says Noth asked if he could come up, and said he just wanted to see where she lived.

“He started kissing me almost right away. Then he leaned against the kitchen countertop and forcibly pulled me against him; he was slobbering all over me, I quickly became uncomfortable.”

She said Noth then became “more aggressive” and began squeezing her breasts.

“I kept pushing his hands down while he was pushing mine up. I was trying to get him to stop. He then forced my hands to pull up his shirt exposing his belly and then even harder pushed my hands down towards his penis. I finally managed to push him away and get out of his grasp and yelled, ‘No, I don’t want this.’

“He became extremely angry and started screaming, calling me a ‘tease’ and a ‘b**h,’” Gentile alleged before he “stormed out” of her apartment.

Gentile says Noth called to warn her that he would blacklist her from the business if she ever spoke of what happened, and then hung up on her.

In his defence Noth has previously denied all other allegations, calling them “categorically false.”
