Everything you need to know about the accusations against Louis CK

According to the article, comedy duo Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov were invited to hang out with C.K in his hotel room in 2002 during the U.S Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colo.

Actor and comedian Rebecca Corry told The New York Times that while she was working on a pilot in 2005, Louis CK came in as a guest star, and asked to enter her dressing room, where he planned to masturbate in front of her. Roseanne Barr once claimed he is known to force women he works with to watch him masturbate, though she later acknowledged she had no firsthand knowledge.

Lewis Kay, a publicist for Louis C.K., declined to answer any questions about the story when reached by the Times.

The New York premiere of Louis C.K.'s upcoming film, I Love You, Daddy, set for Thursday, has been canceled. Besides reportedly canceling the film's premiere as well as his appearances, as of publication, C.K. has yet to make a comment about the story.

Louis CK wrote and directed the controversial I Love You, Daddy, and he stars as a television writer and producer whose teenage daughter (Chloƫ Moretz) is seduced by a predatory 68-year-old filmmaker (John Malkovich). After their alleged encounters, two of the women say, C.K. privately apologized for his behavior. "He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating". TIFF programmers screened and gave I Love You, Daddy a world premiere after C.K. surprised Toronto organizers and let them know the film existed.

Although no one is aware of exactly what the Times will be reporting, The Hollywood Reporter says that the cancellations are directly related to whatever is in the story, and not the film.

"They're rumors, that's all that is", he said in a September interview, explaining he preferred to stay silent rather than address the allegations. Now five have come forward to the Times with stories of Louis' sexual misconduct.

Louis C.K. performs on stage. She told the Times she sat in the comedian's office, with colleagues outside the door, as he masturbated.

Discussion of sexual assault in Hollywood is at the forefront after The New York Times published a bombshell article detailing decades of sexual abuse accusations against Hollywood mega-producer Harvey Weinstein.

"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.
