Jeremy Piven accused of sexual assault on set of ‘Entourage’ by actress Ariane Bellamar

Jeremy Piven accused of sexual assault on set of ‘Entourage’ by actress Ariane Bellamar Onlinelatesttrends  Jeremy Piven is the latest Hollywood star to be accused of sexual assault.

Actress Ariane Bellamar accused the actor of groping her on the set of “Entourage” and at the Playboy Mansion in a series of tweets Tuesday morning.

“Hey @jeremypiven! ‘Member when you cornered me in your trailer on the #Entourage set? ‘Member grabbing my boobies on the (couch) without asking?? ‘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 tweeted.

“Jeremy Piven, on two occasions, cornered me & forcefully fondled my breasts & bum. Once at the mansion & once on set.”

It’s unclear whether Bellamar is referring to the HBO series, which ran from 2004 to 2011, or the 2015 movie; she is not credited for either on IMDb.

Bellamar also claimed that Piven sent her “abusive, explicit texts.”

Piven, who is currently starring on CBS’ “Wisdom of the Crowd," denied the allegations.

Piven starred on the show from 2004 to 2011 and in the 2015 movie.

“I unequivocally deny the appalling allegations being peddled about me. It did not happen,” he said in a statement to the Daily News.

"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.”

CBS said Tuesday that it was “aware of the media reports” and is “looking into the matter.”

HBO denied knowing about the alleged assault.

“Today, via the press reports, is the first we are hearing about Ariane Bellamar’s allegations concerning Jeremy Piven. Everyone at HBO and our productions is aware that zero tolerance for sexual harassment is our policy,” the network said in a statement.

“Anyone experiencing an unsafe working environment has several avenues for making complaints that we take very seriously.”
