I have to say something. However, the fact that she added, " I feel deep sorrow and empathy for the women who have come forward", is important, showing that this isn't behavior to be brushed under the rug. I am asking for privacy at this time for myself and my family.

"I am processing and grieving and hope to say more as soon as I am able", she concludes.

But on Thursday, after a number of women accused C.K. of masturbating in front of them, HBO announced it would remove his work from its on demand service and that he would no longer be performing at it annual fundraiser later this month.

On Friday, Louis released a lengthy statement admitting to the allegations of sexual misconduct. These stories are true, ' he wrote. Initially, C.K.'s publicist, Lewis Kay, said that his client won't respond to any requests for comment. "Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with". It's a predicament for them. A fifth, anonymous woman alleged that while working on The Chris Rock Show in the late 1990s, C.K. masturbated while she sat with him in his office, and a co-worker corroborated her story to the Times.

The Orchard first took a stance against Louis by canceling the movie premiere and then shelving the release of his next film, I Love You Daddy. "As a result, we are giving careful consideration to the timing and release of the film and continuing to review the situation", the statement read.

Even in a recent climate whereby consequences for newly surfaced allegations have come swiftly, this was a startling development; C.K.'s long-on-hiatus series Louie had been a key building block in establishing the network's critical credibility, and C.K.'s clout in Hollywood had been another, as he was producing two shows for the network and another two through the network's production offices for other networks.

HBO has reportedly been pulling past Louis C.K. programs, such as his "Lucky Louie" series and his stand-up comedy specials, from its website.
