Sarah Jessica Parker spotted for the first time since sexual abuse allegations against Chris Noth


Sarah Jessica Parker was pictured out in New York City on Thursday marking her first public sighting since shocking sexual abuse allegations leveled against her Sex and the City co-star, Chris Noth, first came to light.

Parker, 56, kept a low profile while heading out on a cold day in a puffer coat, face mask and wearing headphones. Her outing comes after reports that HBO Max scrubbed a final cameo of Noth from the season finale of And Just Like That. 

Multiple women have come forward to accuse the 67-year-old actor, who famously played Mr. Big in Sex and the City, of sexual assault. Noth had denied those claims and maintains that all of his sexual interactions have been consensual.

SJP bundled up amid snowy weather on the East Coast in a very Carrie Bradshaw-esque look of grey sweatpants tucked into a pair of leather boots with a wooden heel. 

She kept warm in a large black puffer coat with a fur hood, black over-the-ear headphones, and a black protective facemask.

In one hand the actress carried a black backpack of her own design from her SJP collaboration with Samsonite.  

Her embattled co-star, Chris Noth, was seen on Christmas day in Manhattan in the wake of sexual assault allegations.

The actor, who denies the claims against him made by four separate women, walked alone in the park and then took a solo phone call.

Meanwhile, the creative team behind the highly anticipated Sex and the City reboot, And Just Like That, had to scramble to re-edit the February season finale in light of the allegations.

Noth, whose character was killed off in the first episode, has reportedly been edited out of the finale which was sent to feature him in a fantasy scene,  according to TV Line.  

The scene in question allegedly saw Mr. Big appearing before his wife Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) as she scattered his ashes into the Seine river in Paris on the Pont des Arts bridge.

However his character was cut after the creative team decided the minimal amount of footage he had shot was not an essential part of the scene. 

The scene sought to give Carrie closure by scattering his ashes into the river and was shot on location in Paris and then New York the month after. 

The finale was not set in stone when news of the allegations broke, an insider told the site.  

According to reports, SJP was ‘livid’ over what those accusations would do to the cast and crew on the show and a source closed to the actress revealed she feels that ‘she has let everyone down.’

‘She is fiercely protective of Carrie Bradshaw and livid that she and everyone else at the show has been put into this position,’ the source told Us Weekly before the New Year.  

‘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.’ 

Just prior to Christmas, a fourth woman came forward with allegations, saying that Noth had forcibly groped her.

Lisa Gentile, 54, claims she was ‘sexually abused’ by the actor in 2002 when she frequented Da Marino’s restaurant in Manhattan, where she met Noth, and the two became acquaintances.

One night, she said in a statement, Noth went up to her apartment because he said he wanted to see where she lives, but once he was upstairs, she said, he started kissing her and forcibly pulled her against him. He then squeezed her breasts she said, before sliding his hands under his shirt.

‘I kept pushing his hands down, while he was pushing mine up…I was trying to get him to stop,’ she said in a statement on Thursday, claiming he then pulled her hand towards his penis.

She said she was finally able to push him off, after which point, Gentile claims Noth got mad and started calling her a ‘tease’ and a ‘b****.’

The next day, she said, Noth called her friend’s phone and warned her that if she told another person about what happened she would be blacklisted in the industry.

Her attorney, Gloria Allred claims that the experience was ‘traumatic’ for Gentile, noting: ‘It’s had a very serious emotional impact on her.’

One of the other women claimed the actor groped her when she was working as a hostess and lounge singer at the Midtown Manhattan restaurant Da Marino in 2010. She was 18 at the time and Noth was 55.

She claimed he was constantly drunk at the restaurant and repeatedly pulled her onto his lap while groping her and ‘pressing me onto his erection.’

Another two women, using the pseudonyms Zoe, now 40, and Lily, now 31, told The Hollywood Reporter on December 17 that the actor raped them.

Both of those accusers in the report claimed that Noth had sex with them from behind while stood in front of a mirror, with the first attack allegedly taking place in 2004, while the second reportedly occurred in 2015, three years after Noth married his wife, Tara Wilson, with whom he has two children.

The two women both also allege that the attacks took place in one of Noth’s homes – the first in his Los Angeles apartment and the second in his New York City property – after the actor invited them over.

Both women claim that the recent publicity surrounding the Sex and the City reboot – And Just Like That – ‘stirred painful memories’ of their encounters with Noth.

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Noth admitted that he had ‘consensual encounters’ with the two women in the Hollywood Reporter story, both of which reportedly took place while he was in a relationship with his wife Tara Wilson, but he strongly denied any accusations that he assaulted them.

‘The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false,’ the statement reads.

‘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.’

On December 20, after the accusations were made public, stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis penned a joint statement in support of the women on December 

‘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.’
