Pamela Adlon recently released a statement after her good friend and partner, Louis C.K., admitted to sexually assaulting multiple women in the past.

"These stories are true", said the writer, actor and stand-up comedian in a statement released to USA media a day after America's most prestigious newspaper published accusations from the women saying that he masturbated or asked to masturbate in front of them or on the telephone in separate incidents dating from the late 1990s to 2005. Louis has since addressed the matter and many of his vital relationships have fell by the side in the aftermath.

Now Corry has recalled her experience in a candid interview for US breakfast show Good Morning America, revealing the funnyman had been so casual about wanting to expose himself to her while they were shooting a TV pilot in 2005. "The power I had over these women is that they admired me".

She added that C.K. called her two years ago to apologize, but said he was sorry for forcing her into a closet - an incident she assumes must have happened with another woman who he then mixed up with her. Charlie Day was "appalled" to read the allegations, he said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times.

School shooting in Tehama County leaves at least three dead
Investigators say the shooting began at one location, with multiple shots fire, then moved to the elementary school. About 100 law enforcement personnel are examining at least five scenes of interest in Rancho Tehama, Johnston said.


She told her superiors about her experience with the comedian, which she said led to a "very spirited conversation" about "what to do and liability issues and ethical issues". He is now under fire after five women claimed in the Times that he either masturbated in front of them, asked them to watch him masturbate, or masturbated while on the phone with them, a pattern of inappropriate behavior that allegedly went on for years. "And I wielded that power irresponsibly". "Because I have learned that doing nothing, saying nothing, is not helpful". Universal Studios and Illumination Entertainment have also cut ties with CK, announcing the comedian has been dropped from the starring role of The Secret Life of Pets 2, which is set for a June 7, 2019 release.

Netflix has not deleted Louis C.K.'s existing specials as of now, the company has released Live at the Comedy Store in 2015 and another TV Special documentary entitled Louis C.K. 2017.

In the wake of the scandal, the distributor of Louis C.K.'s "I Love You, Daddy" was canceled, as was a second Netflix stand-up special.
