Jeremy Piven is the latest celeb to be accused of sexual misconduct. According to reality star Ariane Bellamar, the actor “forcefully fondled” her twice, once on the set on “Entourage” and again at the Playboy mansion.
Using the MeToo hashtag, Bellamar added that not only did Piven “corner” her and grope her on multiple occasions, but he also sent her “abusive, explicit texts.”
Not surprisingly, Jeremy Piven “unequivocally denies the appalling allegations.” “It takes a great deal of courage for victims to come forward with their histories,” he adds. “And my hope is that the allegations about me that didn’t happen, do not detract from stories that should be heard.”As for CBS, where Piven stars on the new show, “Wisdom of the Crowd,” says they’re “looking into the matter.”
