Queen Latifah stunned by allegations against Chris Noth

Queen Latifah is speaking out for the first time on the s.e.xual assault allegations against Chris Noth, her former co-star on “The Equalizer.” Noth was fired from Latifah’s CBS drama after misconduct claims surfaced in December. It’s still surreal. It is such a dicey, delicate situation that requires a great deal of respect,” Latifah told People in an interview published Monday. “That’s a personal thing that he’s going to have to deal with.

In “The Equalizer,” Noth played an old friend of Latifah’s character, who runs a private security company after years as a CIA director. He will be seen in the first episode of Season 2, which airs Sunday, because the episode had already been filmed.

Beyond that, Latifah told the outlet the show is still “figuring out what we want to do creatively” and how they are going to write off Noth’s role.

Chris’s character’s obviously a big part of the show and it was amazing chemistry, amazing chemistry,” Latifah said. “And my feeling is justice has to prevail regardless. I just want the right things to be done, you know

“The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false,” Noth said in a statement to USA TODAY last month. “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. The encounters were consensual. 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.
