Five women detail sexual misconduct claims against comedian Louis CK

Five women detail sexual misconduct claims against comedian Louis CK

Goodman and Wolov said they were shocked when he invited them to his hotel room during the US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colorado, in 2002 and allegedly stripped naked and began to masturbate. Courteney Cox and David Arquette confirmed they were notified of one alleged incident - an actress on a show they were producing claimed C.K. asked if he could masturbate in front of her.

Another comedian, Rebecca Corry, said C.K. asked her if he could masturbate in front of her while they were both appearing in a 2005 TV pilot.

"Sadly, I've come to learn that Louis C.K.'s victims are not only real", she said, "but many are actual friends of mine within the comedy community". In I Love You Daddy, a character pretends to masturbate at length in public while other characters defend that he's not a sexual predator.

The article saw an immediate impact on the comedian's new film, with the Thursday New York premiere of "I Love You, Daddy" quickly canceled.

A source tells The Hollywood Reporter that a New York Times story on the comedian is about to break, and the premiere was canceled in case it is damaging.

"I think the big piece of why I said yes was because of the culture", she continued. Rebecca says she opted to keep things going. The comedian's routine often included masturbation jokes, and in 2007, he told a radio show a story about exposing his genitals to an old man in public when he was younger, adding, "I don't know why".

Last year, on the topic of misconduct rumours, he told Vulture: "I don't care about that".

In a story published Thursday, the Times identified four women by name, and a fifth who was anonymous, who recounted similar stories of C.K. crossing the line of sexual misconduct in their encounters with them dating back more than a decade. He also abruptly canceled an appearance to promote the film on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

Louis C.K. became the latest Hollywood celebrity to be accused of sexual misconduct following a bombshell article Thursday. When pressed further, he said again, "They're rumors, that's all that is". "There is never a place for the behaviour detailed in these allegations", the film's distributor, The Orchard, said in an emailed statement to Reuters.

THR has reached out to C.K. for comment. During the call, she said, she could hear him masturbating.
