The allegations first surfaced last week in an article published by The Hollywood Reporter. In it, two women who have never met each other accused The Equalizer star of sexually assaulting them. One of the women, who spoke under the pseudonym Zoe, said she was raped in a Los Angeles apartment in 2004, whilst the second woman, using the pseudonym Lily, claimed she was assaulted in his NYC apartment in 2015.

In a statement released last Thursday, the father-of-two, who has been married to Tara Wilson since 2012, denied the allegations and called both situations "consensual" whilst questioning the timing of the revelations.

"The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false," he said. "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."

Since last week, Peloton has removed the actor's recent ad, he has parted ways with his talent agency and on Monday, Universal Television and CBS confirmed that Chris will no longer be filming episodes of The Equalizer.
