One of the women says that Noth raped her in his Los Angeles apartment in 2004 while she was working for a firm that the actor did business with.

“It was very painful and I yelled out, ‘Stop!’” the accuser, who goes by Zoe, told THR. “And he didn’t. I said, ‘Can you at least get a condom?’ and he laughed at me.”

The second accuser, who goes by Lily, says she met the actor at a NYC nightclub in 2015 and was assaulted by him in his apartment in the city.

“I was feeling awful,” she said about how the alleged assault affected her. “Totally violated. All of my dreams with this star I loved for years were gone.”

In response, Peloton has removed their recent ad featuring Noth, which referenced the premiere of And Just Like That…, from their social media accounts.

In a statement to THR, Noth said “The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false. 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.”
