  • In a new interview with CNN two women have come forward accusing Chris D'Elia of exposing himself to them.
  • In June several woman also accused the comedian of "grooming, sexually harassing, and soliciting nude pictures" from them.
  • The 40-year-old has denied all allegations against him. 


Two more women have come forward and accused Chris D'Elia of sexual misconduct.

In June several women accused the comedian of "grooming, sexually harassing, and soliciting nude pictures" from them. He has since denied the allegations, saying "he knows that he has said and done things during his career that have offended people" but "all [his] relationships have been both legal and consensual".

Now, in an interview with CNN, two women are claiming the 40-year-old on different occasions exposed himself to them. One anonymous woman and employee at the Kimpton Schofield Hotel said he requested she come up to his hotel room only to find him naked, while actor Megan Drust claimed he exposed himself to her in her car after asking her for a ride home.

"We are both sitting there and I'm like, 'Where are we going?' And Chris is leaning up against the door of the passenger side and looking at me in this really weird way and then he started to try to make flirty small talk," she told CNN of the 2011 incident. "I was very confused because it just didn't fit the moment. Then he took down his zipper and asked me to touch him and I said, 'What are you doing? No.' And because I wouldn't touch him, he started to masturbate. I couldn't believe it."

Megan said she got out of the car and walked out into the street.

"I'm saying, 'Why are you doing this?' And I remember saying, 'You're defiling my car.' I didn't want to make him mad or upset because you're in survival mode, you know? He climaxed in his pants and then he zipped everything up and I said, 'What's wrong with you?'"

Two of Megan's friends corroborated her story to CNN.

Chris' attorneys denied the latest allegations in a statement to Entertainment Weekly saying: "D'Elia denies these allegations and emphatically states that he has never engaged in any sexual conduct with any woman without her consent."
