Chris Noth Doubles Down On His Statement Following Sexual Assault Allegations As He Hopes To Spend The Holidays With His Wife & Children
Chris Noth is standing by his statement.
As previously reported by OK!, three women made sexual assault allegations against the Sex and the City star after the reboot And Just Like That... aired earlier this month.
Two women — who reportedly do not know each other — alleged to The Hollywood Reporter that Noth sexually assaulted them. A third woman later cam forward, claiming he sexually assaulted her in 2010.
Noth vehemently denied the claims lodged against him. "The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false," he said in a statement. "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," the embattled star's statement continued. "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."

"You have my statement right? My statement is out, I rest by my statement, I'll now let the chips fall where they may," he replied, per Daily Mail. "My statement is my statement, that's all I can give."
"Well yeah, but you know that's the way it is," Noth said when the photographer suggested he is, "innocent until proven guilty," the outlet noted. The 67-year-old added that he hopes he can spend the holidays with his wife and their children.
Noth — who has been dropped by his talent agency and the CBS hit series The Equalizer — reportedly smiled at the camera and made a peace sign before he left.
As previously reported by OK!, the Frame Of Mind alum's wife, Tara Wilson, was spotted in Los Angeles earlier this week without her wedding ring on.
An insider spilled: "things are hanging by a thread," between Noth and Wilson, as the mother-of-two, "just wants to protect the kids [Orion, 13, and Keats, 18 months]. That is her number one priority." The couple tied the knot in Maui, Hawaii, in 2012, four years after getting engaged.
