Louis CK's Manager 'Extremely Sorry' for How He Handled Scandal: 'What I Did Was Wrong'




 

Louis C.K.'s longtime former manager, Dave Becky, has apologized after it was suggested that he tried to keep two women from publicly accusing the comedian of sexual misconduct.

"My intent was to seek discretion to protect what I thought was a matter of infidelity," Becky said in a statement issued Monday. "I now comprehend that my response was perceived as a threat to cover-up sexual misconduct. This is not an excuse. What I did was wrong, and again, I am extremely sorry."

Numerous women accused C.K. of sexual misconduct in a New York Times story that published Thursday. Two of the women, Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, said Becky pressured them to not go forward with their story of C.K. forcing them to watch him masturbate in an Aspen hotel room.

"I profoundly regret and am deeply sorry for not listening to and not understanding what happened to Dana and Julia," Becky said. "If I had, I would have taken this event as seriously as it deserved to be, and I would have confronted Louis, which would have been the right thing to do."

C.K. said Friday that all of the accusations in the Times story are true, leading 3 Arts, agency APA and publicist Lewis Kay to all drop him as a client. C.K.'s film "I Love You, Daddy" has been shelved by distributor The Orchard, while FX cut ties with the star and dropped his executive producer credit from all of his projects with the company.
