Chris Noth has been tangled in a pair of lawsuits filed by his ex-girlfriend, supermodel/actress BEVERLY JOHNSON, and her former lover, who wants the actor to testify against her in court.
Johnson has filed court papers accusing her ex, professional golf star Mark Burk, of beating and threatening to kill her - allegations Burk denies.
The 56-year-old former model filed charges against her then-boyfriend Noth in 1995, accusing him of beating her, threatening to disfigure her dog and making death threats against her, reports the National Enquirer.
Criminal charges were not brought against Noth.
And 51-year-old Burk, who has filed his own lawsuit accusing Johnson of lying, is planning to subpoena the actor to testify on his behalf.
Burk says, "Beverly is an unstable woman. She accused me of threatening to slit her throat and slit her dog's throat - which was complete made up. Beverly accused Chris of all sort of abuse too, but criminal charges were never brought against him. Now he'll be forced to testify against her in my court case, and the truth will finally come out."
Noth adds, "There is no basis to the claims Ms. Johnson made back in 1995. I was approached about Mr. Burk's situation, but I haven't been subpoenaed."
