We should have our day in court - Fourth woman says as she accuses Chris Noth of sexual assault

New York singer Lisa Gentile on Thursday December 23, became the fourth woman to accuse Sex And The City star, Chris Noth of sexual assault. 

Alleging that incident occurred in 2002, Gentile claimed Noth accosted her sexually in her apartment after giving her a ride home from the eatery Da Marino in Midtown and then threatened to ruin her career if she ever spoke out.

Addressing a  press conference with her attorney, Gloria Allred, the singer-songwriter said they first met in 1998 because he was a “regular there and good friends with the owner Pasquale Marino.”

She said; 

“I was afraid to come forward because Mr. Noth’s power and his threats to ruin my career.

“I would often see Chris dining and hanging out there when I would visit Da Marino with my family and my friends.”

Gentile revealed that when she was getting ready to leave the eatery on the night of the alleged attack in 2002, he offered to give her a ride home. She further claimed that when they arrived her apartment, Noth started kissing her in her kitchen “almost right away”, “became more aggressive” and pushed her bra up despite her protests.

She said; 

“When we arrived at my apartment, he asked if he could come up. 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.

“Then he leaned against the kitchen countertop and forcibly pulled me against him. He was slobbering all over me. I quickly became uncomfortable.

“I was trying to get him to stop. Then he forced my hands to pull up his shirt exposing his belly and then even harder, he pushed my hands down toward his penis.

“I finally managed to push him away and get out of his grasp. And yell, ‘No, I don’t want this.’”

Gentile claimed that he became “extremely angry and started screaming and calling me a tease and a bitch” before storming out of her apartment. The next day, she claimed, he called her on her roommate’s phone and threatened her.

The singer added; 

“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.

“He hung up on me and I immediately called my mother and father crying.”

She also disclosed that she is speaking out now to support Noth’s other accusers. Gentile added; 

“I feel that we should have our day in court to hold Mr. Noth accountable for what he did.”

The first two accusers came forward to the Hollywood Reporter with their sexual assault allegations against him, describing in a story published last week how he lured them to private areas and forced himself on them in separate incidents in 2004 and 2015.

The third woman, a tech executive, later told The Daily Beast that Noth allegedly forced himself on her in 2010 in the back office of Da Marino, the same restaurant where Gentile met him.
