Three more women have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against Jeremy Piven
The number of allegations of sexual misconduct against Jeremy Piven is rising. Three more women have come forward to issue claims against the Entourage actor, bringing the grand total up to eight. These accusations range from inappropriate behavior to blatant sexual misconduct. Jeremy Piven has vehemently denied all of these charges.
The story begins back in November of 2017. BuzzFeed released a report by three women who had worked with Jeremy Piven, all claiming the actor had behaved in inappropriate ways. Now, two months later, three more women are sharing their stories. One background actor claims Piven pinned her to a couch. Another says he exposed himself to her and was physically aggressive. And a third woman states that Piven tried to force himself on her after slamming her against a wall.
Jeremy Piven has categorically denied all accusations of sexual misconduct. He even had his attorneys submit a polygraph test to BuzzFeed which they claimed proved he was innocent. Piven has also threatened legal recourse against BuzzFeed for this most recent story.
In response to the new allegations, Jeremy Piven released an official statement.
"These allegations, which in one case goes back more than 30 years and the two others more than 20 years ago, are false. As evidenced by the lie detector test I took and passed, I have never forced myself on anyone, nor have I ever exposed myself or restrained anyone against their will. To the contrary, if any woman ever said no, I stopped."
In addition to speaking with the three women, BuzzFeed also interviewed people connected to them.
And they all corroborated the stories about Jeremy Piven. We stand with all victims of sexual abuse and misconduct and applaud these women for having the bravery to step up and speak out.
