Who is Lisa Gentile ?
During a press conference Thursday, led by her attorney Gloria Allred, Gentile shared an emotional statement in which she claimed that Noth, 67, assaulted her in 2002.
“I met Chris Noth when I started frequenting Da Marino restaurant in New York City in 1998. He was a regular there and was good friends with owner Pasquale Marino. I often saw Chris having dinner and hanging out there when he visited Da Marino with my family and my friends. Eventually, Chris and I started talking and we got to know each other. We talked mainly about music and show business in the neighborhood, “he began.
Gentile continued: “Then one Saturday night in early 2002, we were all hanging out at Da Marino. Around midnight, I was getting ready to leave. Chris offered to drive me home and I said, ‘Okay. ‘When we got to my apartment, he asked if he could go upstairs. I told him I had nothing to offer him to drink and he said,’ Okay. ‘I just wanted to see where he lived. He went upstairs. We went in and went to the kitchen. He wanted to see the rest of the apartment, but I didn’t show him because my roommates were sleeping. He used the bathroom and I found some old boxed wine and poured him a glass. ”
Gentile went on to claim that Noth began to touch and kiss her, despite her protests.
“He started kissing me almost immediately. Then he leaned against the kitchen counter and pushed me against him. He was drooling all over the place. I quickly felt uncomfortable. Then he got more aggressive and put both hands on my breasts and He started to squeeze me very hard on my shirt. He quickly crawled under my shirt and began to squeeze them even tighter over my bra with his fingers grasping the exposed skin, not covered by my bra. Then he pushed my bra up with both hands. “. she said.
Mr. Noth and his threats to ruin my career
“I grabbed his hands in mine and tried to stop him,” Gentile added. “I kept pushing his hands down as he pushed mine up. I was trying to make him stop. Then he forced me to lift my shirt to expose his belly, and then, even harder, he pushed my hands toward his penis. I managed to push him away, escape his grip and yell ‘No, I don’t want this.’ He got really mad and started yelling and calling me a joker and bitch. He stormed out of my apartment. ”
Gentile said that when Noth left her apartment, she woke up her roommate and best friend and told her what happened. The next morning, she said that she got a call from Noth.
“He warned me that if I told a soul what happened the night before it would ruin my career, that I would never sing again and that I would be blacklisted from the business. He hung up on me and I immediately called my mother and father in tears,” he said. .
“I was afraid to step forward because of the power of Mr. Noth and his threats to ruin my career. I am speaking now in support of the other four women who have bravely stood before me. I feel like we should have our day in court. to seek to hold Mr. Noth accountable for what he did, and also to speak out to guarantee the rights of my nieces, my goddaughter and future victims of s*xual harassment and assault, “concluded Gentile.
