When Jeremy Piven was accused of groping Ariane Bellamar, he vehemently denied it.
In fact, the Entourage star even said he was willing to take a polygraph, and it seems he’s finally made good on that claim.
According to The Blast, the actor sat down for the lie detector test on November 13 administered by the American Polygraph Association with Chapman Investigations.
When asked questions including the following, Jeremy responded “no” to all:
“Did you ever ‘grab’ and/or fondle Ms. Arianne Bellamar’s breasts?”
“Did you ever ├óΓé¼╦£corner’ Ms. Bellamar in your trailer so that you could ├óΓé¼╦£grab’ her breasts and/or buttocks?”
“Did Ms. Bellamar ever enter your trailer on the set of Entourage?”
Per his report, he “PASSED” the test.
The Blast also added Ariane has been hit with lawsuits over libel, one from her her mother-in-law and father-in-law, and another from businessman Andrew Puzder.
Additionally, Jeremy took a lie detector test in regards to the sexual assault accusations from Tiffany Bacon and Amy Meador, which he also passed.
Some of those questions were as follows:
“Have you ever ‘grabbed’ or fondled a woman’s genitals, breasts or buttocks without their consent?”
“Have you ever performed a sexual act on a female without their consent?”
“Have you ever exposed your penis or ejaculated on or in front of a female without their consent?”
“Are all the allegations of sexual misconduct false?”
He answered “no” to them all, except the last which he answered “yes.”
In response to all the allegations out in Hollywood, Jeremy shared:
“We seem to be entering dark times ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ allegations are being printed as facts and lives are being put in jeopardy without a hearing, due process or evidence. I hope we can give people the benefit of a doubt before we rush to judgment.”
We should note that polygraph tests are beatable and not 100% determiners of truth-telling, hence their inadmissibility in court. But still interesting.
We’ll have to see what happens next, especially if his alleged victims speak out following this news.
