CBS ‘Looking Into’ Groping Allegations Against Jeremy Piven – Variety

UPDATED: CBS is “looking into” badual harbadment allegations leveled by reality star Ariane Bellamar against Jeremy Piven.

Bellamar accused the “Entourage” star of groping her in a tweet posted Monday using the hashtag #metoo.

“Hey [Jeremy Piven]!” she wrote. “‘Member when you cornered me in your trailer on the #Entourage set? ‘Member grabbing my badies on the [couch] without asking??”

Bellamar continued that she tried to leave, but Piven allegedly “grabbed [her] by the bad, looked at [himself] in the mirror, and said what a ‘beautiful couple’ [they] made.”

Piven, who played Ari Gold on “Entourage,” won a Golden Globe and three Primetime Emmy Awards for his portrayal in the 2004 series. Bellamar’s acting credits include “Suicide Squad” and “The Hangover Part III,” as well as a stint on reality series “Beverly Hills Nannies” in 2012.

Bellamar added in a third tweet that Piven had grabbed her bads and bad in a separate incident at the Playboy Mansion.

She also implied that Piven had sent her “abusive, explicit” texts in a fourth tweet, warning him against trying to deny the accusations and writing “enough is ENOUGH.”

CBS’s statement reads, “We are aware of the media reports and are looking into the matter.” Piven currently stars on the network’s show “Wisdom of the Crowd,” which premiered earlier this month.

Bellamar’s accusations are the latest in a wave of women and men coming forward with stories of badual harbadment and badault in the entertainment industry and beyond, triggered by the Harvey Weinstein scandal in which over 60 women accused the former mogul of harbadment and inappropriate behavior dating back decades. The scandal erupted after a New York Times exposé on the producer that detailed eight instances in which he settled lawsuits from women who had accused him of badual harbadment, including Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan.
