Sex and the City's Chris Noth accused of rape and sexual assault by two women

Allegations against 67-year-old Law and Order/Sex and the City actor Chris Noth are detailed in a new report from The Hollywood Reporter released on Thursday.

Two women using the pseudonyms Zoe, now 40, and Lily, now 31 approached THR separately and months apart with claims of being sexually assaulted by the actor.

Both of the women, who used the pseudonyms Zoe, now 40, and Lily, now 31, claim that Noth had sex with them from behind in front of a mirror, with the first attack allegedly taking place in 2004, while the second reportedly occurred in 2015, three years after Noth married his wife, Tara Wilson, with whom he has two children.

The two women both also allege that the attacks took place in one of Noth’s homes – the first in his Los Angeles apartment and the second in his New York City property – after the actor invited them over.

The first, Zoe, said she visited the actor’s home in West Hollywood to return a book that he had lent her, while the second stated that she went back to Noth’s apartment in Greenwich Village after a date, when he invited her to sample ‘his collection of whiskeys’.

Both women claim that the recent publicity surrounding the Sex and the City reboot – And Just Like That – ‘triggered’ their memories of their encounters with Noth, who has featured heavily in the news in the past week as a result of the shock death of his character, Mr Big, in the first episode of the new series.

Accuser “Zoe”

Noth’s first accuser – Zoe, now 40 – claims that the actor invited her to his Los Angeles apartment to return a book in 2004, before raping her from behind. 

She claims that he ‘kissed her as she stepped through the door’ and that she ‘tentatively kissed him back’ before trying to leave his home. 

Zoe alleges that the actor then ‘pulled her toward him, moved her toward the bed, pulled off her shorts and bikini bottom, and began to rape her from behind’ while they were ‘facing a mirror’. 

‘It was very painful and I yelled out, “Stop!”‘ she claims. ‘And he didn’t. I said, “Can you at least get a condom?” and he laughed at me.’ 

Following the alleged incident, Zoe says she saw ‘blood on her shirt’ and returned to a friend’s apartment, which was located in the same building as Noth’s home, to try and wash it out. 

It was there that her friends urged her to go to hospital – where she says she had to get stitches. 

‘I had stitches. Two police officers came. I wouldn’t say who it was,’ she says, claiming that she feared she would ‘not be believed’ and could ‘be fired’ if she publicly accused Noth of rape.

Accuser “Lily”

The second accuser – a woman using the pseudonym Lily, now 31 – alleges that Noth assaulted her in his apartment in Greenwich Village in 2015 after he invited her on a date at Italian restaurant Il Cantinori.

According to Lily, the kitchen at the restaurant had closed by the time they arrived, so they drank wine together at the bar. She claims that she ‘had too much to drink’ but was ‘nowhere near blacking out’ when Noth suggested that they go back to his home to ‘sample his collection of whiskeys’. 

She says they spent time ‘listening to music’ and discussing his collection of ‘books about art and fashion’, before he ‘tried to make out with her’. 

Lily says she ‘cautiously entertained’ him, but that he became more forceful as time went on. 

‘He kept trying and trying and trying, and I should have said no more firmly and left. And then the next thing I knew, he pulled down his pants and he was standing in front of me,’ she says, alleging that he then ‘thrust his penis into her mouth’.

She claims that Noth – who was married to wife Tara Wilson and had one child with her at the time – told her ‘marriage is a sham’ and that ‘monogamy is not real’, before raping her. 

‘[Suddenly] he was having sex with me from the back in a chair,’ she said. ‘We were in front of a mirror. I was kind of crying as it happened.’

After the alleged attack, Lily says she ‘went to the bathroom and put on her skirt’, adding that she ‘felt awful… totally violated’. 

Chris Noth’s statement

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Noth, who has two sons with his wife Wilson – Keats and Orion – admitted that he had ‘consensual encounters’ with the two women, but he strongly denied any accusations that he assaulted them.   

‘The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false,’ the statement reads. 

‘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. 

‘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.’
