Actor Jeremy Piven is being accused of sexually harassing an actress while working on “Entourage,” the hit HBO show produced by Mark Wahlberg.
Ariane Bellamar, who’s now a reality TV personality, tweeted that Piven cornered her in his trailer and groped her breasts and buttocks. Bellamar, a former Playboy Playmate, claims Piven did the same thing to her — “forcefully fondled my breasts & bum” — at the Playboy Mansion, and also sent her “abusive, explicit” text messages.
Piven, who played Hollywood super agent Ari Gold on “Entourage,” has not responded to Bellamar’s allegations. He’s the latest alleged abuser to be called out in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein revelations, joining journalist Mark Halperin, director James Toback, magazine editor Leon Wieseltier, and photographer Terry Richardson.
Bellamar, who went on to appear on “Beverly Hills Nannies” and “The Millionaire Matchmaker,” posted a picture of herself on Instagram Tuesday with this caption: “#HAPPYHALLOWEEN! This year I’m going as ‘the hoe that deserved to be sexually assaulted ’cause she showed her cleavage’! #slutshaming #MeToo.”
