Jeremy Piven has been accused of sexual harassment by actress and reality star Ariane Bellamar. Bellamar this week took to Twitter to reveal that Piven grabbed her breasts and butt while on-set during the filming of famed HBO series, Entourage, in which the 52-year-old actor had a leading role.
Bellamar disclosed that Piven touched her inappropriately multiple times and even went on to do so during a second encounter at the Playboy Mansion, followed by a series of “abusive, explicit” texts.
CBS is reportedly looking into the allegations, as Piven is currently starring in the network’s Wisdom of the Crowd, which premiered earlier this month. “We are aware of the media reports and are looking into the matter,” CBS said in a statement.
Bellamar’s coming forward sees her joining a wave of women and men speaking up regarding sexual harassment/assault within the entertainment industry and beyond.
