A longtime friend and collaborator of Louis C.K., Pamela Adlon has reacted after the comedian admitted that the sexual misconduct allegations made against him “are true.”
In a statement released Friday afternoon, the Better Things star, who co-created the dramedy series with C.K. said she feels “deep sorrow” for the five women who came forward in the New York Times article, published Thursday.
“Hi. I’m here. I have to say something. It’s so important,” Adlon, 51, begins.
“My family and I are devastated and in shock after the admission of abhorrent behavior by my friend and partner, Louis C.K.” she continues.
“I feel deep sorrow and empathy for the women who have come forward,” says Adlon. “I am asking for privacy at this time for myself and my family.”
“I am processing and grieving and hope to say more as soon as I am able,” she concludes.
