Yet Another One: New Accusations of Sexual Assault
Now 'Entourage' star Jeremy Piven is facing allegations over behavior on the set of his former show and at the Playboy mansion
Another actor has found himself embroiled in controversy: “Entourage” star Jeremy Piven was accused of sexual assault on Monday night.
Model and actress Ariane Bellamar took to Twitter to remind Piven of an alleged encounter the two had on the set of HBO’s “Entourage,” a show that ended in 2011 but was followed by a film in 2015.
"Hey @jeremypiven! 'Member when you cornered me in your trailer on the #Entourage set? 'Member grabbing my boobies on the [couch] without asking??" she tweeted.
She later said, "'Member when I tried to leave; you grabbed me by the a**, looked at yourself in the mirror, & said what a 'beautiful couple' we made?"
She added that Piven had "forcefully fondled my breasts & bum" on two occasions, once at the Playboy mansion and once on the set of "Entourage."
Bellamar also alleged that Piven had sent her "abusive, explicit texts."
Bellamar claimed in a later tweet she had reached out to Sprint, and they were willing to help her find these "abusive, explicit" texts.
Piven won three Emmys and one Golden Globe for his role as ruthless Hollywood agent Ari Gold in "Entourage." He currently stars on CBS in "Wisdom of the Crowd."
