New York Times Reports on Louis CK's History of

In a statement to the Times, C.K.'s publicist Lewis Kay said the comedian would not answer any questions about the allegations. She said Louis C.K. had made an inappropriate comment to her and she no longer considers him a friend.

His accusers include comedy duo Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, who allege that he stripped naked and masturbated in front of them in 2002. Another performer, Abby Schachner, said Louis C.K. was masturbating while on the phone with her in 2003.

The New York premiere of Louis C.K.'s controversial new movie "I Love You, Daddy" has been abruptly cancelled at the last minute due to an impending New York Times story on the comedian that are rumored to contain some bombshell revelations, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Another woman, who chose to remain anonymous, alleged that C.K. had repeatedly asked to masturbate in front of her while both of them were working on The Chris Rock Show in the late 1990s.

Reps for the NY premiere said the event was canceled due to "unexpected circumstances", according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show premiered only a month before the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke, opening the floodgates in Hollywood for women, and men, to come forward with their stories of sexual harassment. "They're rumors. That's all it is". But Corry said that C.K. apologized for shoving her in a bathroom, not allegedly masturbating in front of her, causing her to think there have been other incident of misconduct. Notaro said she is speaking out to support of those with the courage "to speak up against such a powerful well as the multitude of women still out there, not quite ready to share their nightmares". He was scheduled to be on the show on Thursday, but has been replaced by William H. Macy. There is never a place for the behavior detailed in these allegations. TIFF programmers screened and gave I Love You, Daddy a world premiere after C.K. surprised Toronto organizers and let them know the film existed. "We don't talk since then", she said, even though he's credited as a producer on the comedian's Amazon series One Mississippi. She told the Times she sat in the comedian's office, with colleagues outside the door, as he masturbated.

Several commenters on the article claimed the item was a now well-circulated rumor about Louis C.K. - though his friend, comedian Doug Stanhope, claimed to be at fault in a Facebook post.
