Jeremy Piven suddenly has something in common with Kevin Spacey.
And it’s not that both have appeared on beloved television shows.
Instead, days after Spacey was accused of sexual assault by an actor named Anthony Rapp, Piven now faces the same kind of accusation.
Ariane Bellamar, a reality star who appeared on an episode of Entourage many years ago, Tweeted on Monday that Piven once acted very, very inappropriately while in her company.
"Hey @jeremypiven! ‘Member when you cornered me in your trailer on the #Entourage set? ‘Member grabbing my boobies on the without asking??" she wrote.
Bellamar then followed up this question with another message on the troubling topic:
"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?"
The actress went on to note that Piven sent her "explicit text" messages and added:
Jeremy Piven, on two occasions, cornered me & forcefully fondled my breasts & bum. Once at the mansion & once on set.
We presume Bellamar is referring to the Playboy Mansion above.
Piven has not yet responded to this disturbing allegation.
Ariane Bellamar, meanwhile, is a Florida native who has stopped by such shows as Beverly Hills Nannies and The Millionaire Matchmaker.
She simply appeared as herself on these shows.
But she also played actual roles in movies such as Suicide Squad and The Hangover Part III.
Here is an Instagram photo of her:
Over the past few weeks, ever since an endless array of women came out and accused Harvey Weinstein of rape and sexual misconduct, this subject has been a pressing one in Hollywood.
As it should be.
Alleged victims such as Rapp have come forward with claims against various celebrities, some based on interactions that are decades old.
But the bravery of the women who spoke out against Weinstein has inspired these others to also speak up.
Along with Spacey, NBC political contributor Mark Halperin and director James Toback have also been accused in recent weeks.
We’ll have more on this Piven story if the actor comments or if any news breaks.
