"Another comedian, Rebecca Corry, said that while she was appearing with C.K. on a television pilot in 2005, he asked if he could masturbate in front of her".
Comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov also accused C.K. of similarly despicable behavior while stopping into his Aspen, Colorado, hotel room in 2002. Asked again about the accusations this week, his publicist Lewis Kay reportedly told the paper that the comedian is "not going to answer any questions". Though she didn't elaborate on what caused their rift, comparisons were drawn between a sexual assault plotline in the show's second season and the unsubstantiated rumors about C.K.

The comedian's routine often included masturbation jokes, and in 2007, he told a radio show a story about exposing his genitals to an old man in public when he was younger, adding, "I don't know why". "As a result, we are giving careful consideration to the timing and release of the film and continuing to review the situation", read the statement issued by Anna Dinces Janash, spokeswoman for The Orchard. "We're at the bleeding edge of 'That's not OK to do now, ' but those people are still around", C.K. said about dealing with the controversial topics in the film. "If you actually participate in a rumor, you make it bigger and you make it real". In response, the comedian brushed off the rumors, telling The New York Times in September, "They're rumors, that's all that is".

Spacey, who was 26 at the time , said: "I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago". Paul Getty III ( Charlie Plummer , no relation), and Getty's refusal to comply with the kidnappers' demands.
In the wake of that news, C.K. pulled the premier of his "I Love You Daddy" movie (creepiest name ever?), in which his daughter is seduced by a far older Hollywood Exec. The comedian also cancelled a planned appearance on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert". "Shameless" star William H. Macy will be the lead guest star on the episode instead.
