Everything you need to know about the accusations against Louis CK

Louis C.K. could be facing a major bombshell

Chicago comedy duo Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, comedians Rebecca Corry, Abby Schachner and C.K. collaborator and onetime friend Tig Notaro all spoke to the Times for the story. Their accounts are remarkably similar, involving incidents where the Louie star either asked if he could masturbate in front of them, or simply did so without their consent. David Arquette and Courteney Cox, exec producers on the show, confirmed the story. "What happened to Rebecca on that set was bad", Cox wrote of the incident in an email, expressing her reaction of "outrage and shock".

Although his agent said he would decline to comment, Louis CK previously brushed off rumors of sexual misconduct, telling Vulture in 2016, "I don't care about that".

Hours after the premiere of his new movie I Love You, Daddy was canceled, a New York Times report details several sexual-misconduct allegations against Louis C.K. In encounters dating back to the late 1990s, five women told the Times the comedian asked if he could masturbate while they were in the room, or masturbated in front of them or during phone calls. The premiere of the film, scheduled to take place on Thursday, has been cancelled, as has Louis C.K.'s scheduled appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. The film features a character who pretends to masturbate at length in front of other people.

It's not the first time there has been talk in the press about C.K. and inappropriate behavior.

Schnachner told the Times that C.K. apologized in a 2009 Facebook message. Notaro even devoted an entire episode of her Amazon comedy series, One Mississippi-which is produced by Louis C.K. -to the allegations against Louis C.K. That episode is a pretty harrowing watch now.

He also said the new tax regime of GST, the second blow to Indian economy, was "hastily imposed" and "poorly conceptualised".

A source tells The Hollywood Reporter that a New York Times story on the comedian is about to break, and the premiere was canceled in case it is damaging.

Radar has previously reported C.K.'s history of sexual misconduct. The comedian was set to appear on the Thursday show but was replaced by William H. Macy on Wednesday evening.

"This guy didn't rape me, but he made a certain difficult decision to go on tour with him really hard", she said in the now-deleted podcast.

"They're rumors, that's all that is", he said. The comedian's routine often included masturbation jokes, and in 2007, he told a radio show a story about exposing his genitals to an old man in public when he was younger, adding, "I don't know why".
