Chris Noth abandoned by talent agency amid new sexual assault complaint
The fallout from “Sex and the City” former Chris Noth continued through the weekend as the actor was accused by a third woman of sexual assault and an old tabloid story about the ex-girlfriend Beverly Johnson has resurfaced.
Noth was ditched by his art agency, A3 Artists Agency, who signed him in October.
“I can confirm that Chris Noth is no longer a client of A3 Artists Agency,” a spokesperson for the bicoastal outfit told The Times on Monday.
Last week, the “The Good Wife” actor was accused by two women of sexual assault in 2004 and 2015; the women said they were sparked by his return to the small screen and detailed their stories in the hollywood reporter. The next day, actress and director Zoe Lister-Jones accused the actor of misconduct on the set of “Law & Order”. By Friday night the daily beast published allegations made by a 30-year-old tech executive who alleged that Noth forced himself on her in the back office of a Midtown restaurant in 2010. She was 18 at the time.
Noth, 67, denied the two women’s initial allegations, describing them as “categorically false”, and also denied those made by the Daily Beast’s technical manager.
“The story is a complete fabrication, and the allegedly detailed accounts throughout read like bad fiction,” a spokesperson for Noth said in a statement to The Times. “As Chris said [Thursday], he crossed and will never cross that line.
But the actor’s professional reputation takes a hit.
Fitness company Peloton – which sells the stationary bike that fell into infamy after its apparent involvement in the disappearance of its character Mr. Big from “And Just Like That …” – quickly released a viral commercial featuring Noth . And a $ 12 million deal to acquire its brand of tequila Ambhar has also failed over allegations, according to the New York Post and Business fox.
During this time, an old story of the National Enquirer about his ex-girlfriend, former supermodel Beverly Johnson, resurfaced on social media and dusted off 1995 court documents in which Johnson claimed Noth had ‘beaten’ her and used physical violence and death threats. They dated from 1990 to 1995. No charges have been laid against Noth.
Noth has since married actress and businesswoman Tara Wilson, with whom he shares two teenage sons. The two attended the glitzy New York premiere of “And Just Like That…” together earlier this month, and showed a united front as they kissed for the cameras. Other tabloid stories focused on Wilson and his reaction to the allegations, including one of the women citing him as saying monogamy is a “sham.”
