This week we discuss allegations of abuse made by four women against actor Chris Noth.

Many of us will have grown up knowing Noth’s notorious character ‘Mr. Big’ in the hit show Sex And The City.

Following the release of the long awaited follow up programme ‘And Just Like That’ in late 2021, an allegation of sexual assault was made against him.

This was quickly followed by 4 other allegations of abuse stemming over a period from t 1990’s until 2015.

There have been allegations of blacklisting those women in the New York community if disclosure was made Nott’s would destroy their careers.

It is important to state at this time, these are allegations, to which no prosecution or charges have been made at the time of writing.

Following the disclosure, Noth has already had endorsements such as Peloton commercial cancelled and has been removed from some of the marketing for And Just Like That.

Noth has released a statement which said “The allegations against me made by people I met years or even decades ago are categorically wrong“, According to Noth, the contacts with the women in question were consensual. “These stories could have been written 30 years or 30 days ago –no always means no– that is a limit that I have not crossed. The encounters were amicable, ”said the star

Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, who played Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte in the hit US show, acknowledged the difficulty of sharing the “painful experiences” and said;

“We are deeply saddened to hear the allegations against Chris Noth,” “We support the women who have come forward and shared their painful experiences.

“We know it must be a very difficult thing for them to do and we commend them for it.”

We believe there will be much more published about these allegations in the coming months.

We encourage anyone who has concerns about sexual abuse to get in touch. You can contact Alan Collins at [email protected] or Danielle Vincent at  [email protected].
