LOS ANGELES, Nov 1 — In the latest of sexual misconduct revelations, Jeremy Piven has been accused of harassing a guest actor on hit TV show Entourage.
Reality star and actress Ariane Bellamar took to Twitter to accuse Piven of repeatedly groping her on sets of Entourage. “’Member when you cornered me in your trailer on the #Entourage set? ‘Member grabbing my boobies on the [couch] without asking??”
She also tweeted: “’Member when I tried to leave; you grabbed me by the ass, looked at yourself in the mirror, & said what a ‘beautiful couple’ we made?
“Jeremy Piven, on two occasions, cornered me & forcefully fondled my breasts & bum. Once at the mansion & once on set. #MeToo
Piven later vehemently denied the accusation and responded in a statement to Deadline: “I unequivocally deny the appalling allegations being peddled about me. It did not happen.
“It takes a great deal of courage for victims to come forward with their histories, and my hope is that the allegations about me that didn’t happen, do not detract from stories that should be heard.”
Piven played the role of Ari Gold and won a Golden Globe as well as three Primetime Emmy Awards for his portrayal in the HBO series.
