Louis C.K.'s longtime manager is apologizing for not taking complaints about his client's sexual misconduct more seriously.

Dave Becky says in a lengthy statement Monday that he misunderstood the nature of the allegations by a female comedy duo in 2002. The two said C.K. masturbated in front of them without their consent. The allegations by Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov were among several included in a New York Times report last week about C.K.'s history of misconduct.

Becky said he sought discretion from the women at the time because he considered the issue one of infidelity for his married client.

He said Monday, "what I did was wrong, and again, I am extremely sorry."
