Louis C.K.'s Collaborator Pamela Adlon 'Devastated and in Shock'
Pamela Adlon, Louis C.K.'s longtime creative collaborator on such projects as "Lucky Louie," "Louie" and "Better Things," has released an emotional statement following a New York Times piece detailing sexual misconduct by the comic — and his admission that "these stories are true."
Us Weekly reports Adlon is "devastated and in shock" and is asking for space to process the revelations.
Her statement, in full:
“Hi. I'm here. I have to say something. It's so important. My family and I are devastated and in shock after the admission of abhorrent behavior by my friend and partner, Louis C.K. I feel deep sorrow and empathy for the women who have come forward.
“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."
In the wake of the scandal, the distributor of Louis C.K.'s "I Love You, Daddy" was canceled, as was a second Netflix stand-up special.
