Supermodel Beverly Johnson’s Claim That Chris Noth Threatened To Kill Her Resurfaces

Johnson filed a restraining order against the 'Sex and the City' actor in 1995.

The accounts of former top model Beverly Johnson against actor and former boyfriend Chris Noth — who is largely known as “Mr. Big” on Sex and the City — have resurfaced in light of three women that have come forward accusing him of sexual assault last week.

The 69-year old, who is considered to be the first Black supermodel, once filed a restraining order against the actor, claiming he “punched [her] in the chest and ribs” and allegedly made repeated threats to “kill” her.

In court documents obtained by Page Six, Johnson — who dated Noth from 1990 to 1995 — filed for the temporary restraining back on Aug. 1, 1995, requesting he stay 500 yards away from her, her daughter and their dog.

“Chris Noth punched me in the chest and ribs, injuring my ribs, making it difficult to breathe, punching and bruising my face and body in which I had to have medical attention,” the model alleged in the docs. “On July 27, 1995, he made repeated threats on my life making up to 25 calls per day threatening to kill me [and] destroy my face. Threatened to kill dog.”

The new reports of sexual assault come just days after the release of the heavily anticipated Sex In The City HBO spin-off and his sponsor and employers have been swift in his removal.

Peloton, CBS’ The Equalizer and his talent agency, A3 Artists Agency, have all dropped Noth in efforts to distance themselves from the embattled star.

Similarly, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis, who all co-star with Noth on Sex In The City as well as And Just Like That, each took to their Instagram stories Monday night to release a joint statement:

"We are deeply saddened to hear the allegations against Chris Noth. We support the women who have come forward and share their painful experiences. We know it must be a very difficult thing to do and we commend them for it," the post read, before Nixon, Parker, and Davis signed off on the joint statement.

Johnson also asked the judge to order Noth to “make no calls to others with threats against me. Restraining from slandering my character + good name,” as he “categorically” denied the new allegations against him.

“The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false,” he told Page Six in a statement last week. “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. 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.”

Social media has been reacting with hashtags #BelieveWomen, as Johnson has been on record about Noth’s harassment when they dated, as well as harassment by Bill Cosby.
