‘Zoe’ claimed that the Law & Order star assaulted her in 2004 when she was just 22-years-old. After meeting Noth while working at a high-profile entertainment firm in Los Angeles she claimed thing escalated from flirty voicemails to rape.
‘Lily’ met Noth when she worked as a server in the VIP section of a New York nightclub in 2015. Noth was 60 and asked the then 25-year-old out for dinner — despite being married — and things got physical back at his place following drinks.

After the allegations surfaced, a third woman, actress Zoe Lister-Jones, who worked with Noth on Law & Order accused him of behaving inappropriately on set.
She claimed he made a weird pass at her when he was drunk on set, called him a ‘sexual predator’ and said that she knew of an instance where he was ‘consistently sexually inappropriate with a fellow female promoter’ at the nightclub he owned.
After the accusations were made public stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis penned a joint statement in support of the women.
‘We support the women who have come forward and shared their painful experiences. We know it must be a very difficult thing to do and we commend them for it.’

Most recently it was reported that Parker was ‘blindsided’, ‘heartbroken’ and ‘livid’ over the Noth situation.
‘She is fiercely protective of Carrie Bradshaw and livid that she and everyone else at the show has been put into this position’ an insider told Us Weekly.
‘It is not about the money, but rather her legacy. Carrie was all about helping women and now, under her watch, women are saying that they have been hurt.’
Noth on his part denies the accusations. ‘The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false,’ he told The Hollywood Reporter.
‘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.’
