Louis CK Accused of Masturbating in Front of Women

Friday, 10 Nov, 2017

Others in the industry have come forward to support the women's claims: Friends star Courteney Cox and then-husband David Arquette were the executive producers on the pilot, and confirmed Corry's story.

The women, in a bombshell New York Times story, describe a pattern of behavior that included C.K. masturbating in front of them or asking them to watch him do so.

Kirkman tweeted, "I believe Dana and Julia". The women would be together.

"I'm not going to answer to that stuff, because they're rumors", C.K. said at the time. They laughed it off as a joke. However, a source told the outlet the cancellation was a preventive measure in case the Times published a damning report.

"He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating", Goodman said.

"No", the comedian also replied, when asked if the rumors were "real".

Mr. C.K. (real name Louis Székely) also canceled his interview Thursday night with Mr. Colbert, and William H. Macy is expected to take his place, Variety said.

"He abused his power", she said. Another performer, Abby Schachner, said Louis C.K. was masturbating while on the phone with her in 2003. She said he had never done anything to her and never implied that he did.

Goodman and Wolov say they told others about the incident at the time but got wind that his manager was upset they were speaking out; fearing career damage they stopped. In 2012, Gawker ran a blind item alleging that an unnamed male comedian had masturbated in front of two women at the Aspen Comedy Festival some years prior-the site of the alleged 2002 incident.

Rumors of alleged inappropriate behavior involving Louis C.K. have been gossiped about for years.

Radar has previously reported C.K.'s history of sexual misconduct.

The Times story comes four weeks after the paper published an exposé on movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, detailing decades of allegations of sexual harassment and assault from multiple women. Becky denied that he threatened the women.

Already, the allegations have had tangible effects.

Louis C.K.'s film I Love You, Daddy which was set to premiere today in NY has been suddenly cancelled, in addition to an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. "As a result, we are giving careful consideration to the timing and release of the film and continuing to review the situation", read the statement issued by Anna Dinces Janash, spokeswoman for The Orchard.
