Everything you need to know about the accusations against Louis CK

Since this story was posted, the New York Times has published the accounts of five women who have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against C.K. Following years of unsubstantiated rumors of misconduct, this report marks the first time women have gone on the record with allegations.

For years, rumors of sexual harassment have swirled around comedian Louis CK. HuffPost has reached out to Kay for comment and will update this post accordingly. Becky, who also manages a stable of prominent comedians like Amy Poehler and Kevin Hart, denied threatening any of the women.

"In 2003, Abby Schachner called C.K.to invite him to one of her shows, and during the phone conversation, she said, she could hear him masturbating as they spoke", the Times story continued. "And it's just par for the course", she said of the comedy business.

"You want to believe it's not happening", she said, adding that she "felt very ashamed" because of the incident, as she looked up to Louis C.K.

A fifth woman, whose story was included anonymously, said she was in her early 20s and working on The Chris Rock Show in the late '90s when C.K., a writer and producer on the show, repeatedly asked her to watch him masturbate and she agreed, because of the workplace culture. She declined his advances.

Courteney Cox and David Arquette who were executive producers on a pilot in 2005 with Louis shared that they knew what happened to Rebecca Cory and were shocked that such unwarranted behavior had occurred.

"The premiere is canceled for this evening", a rep for the film confirmed to The Times on Thursday, declining to share any additional information.

"What happened to Rebecca on that set was bad", the pilot's producer Cox said, adding that she felt "outrage and shock". But it seems that the entertainment industry can attest to the stories being shared by these women. Instead of shutting this duo down tout suite, C.K.'s character instead makes a passionate speech defending a relationship that could amount to statutory rape. In 2012, Gawker ran a blind item alleging that an unnamed male comedian had masturbated in front of two women at the Aspen Comedy Festival some years prior-the site of the alleged 2002 incident. So you go, 'Should I leave the house with an umbrella, or not?' " she told the Village Voice.
