Jeremy Piven Denies Allegations of Sexual Assault

LOS ANGELES – Actor Jeremy Piven denied on Thursday all accusations of sexual assault, describing them as absolutely false and completely fabricated.

The response from Piven, who is known for his role in US television series “Entourage,” comes on the same day that advertising executive Tiffany Bacon Scourby claimed that Piven assaulted her in 2003 in New York.

“He jumped on top of me. I tried to push him off and he forced me to the ground,” Scourby said.

Scourby is the third woman to have accused Piven, after actresses Ariane Bellamar and Cassidy Freeman made allegations in recent weeks.

The actor, who has repeatedly denied the accusations, published on Thursday a statement on his Twitter account.

“Let me begin by saying that the accusations against me are absolutely false and completely fabricated,” he said.

“I would never force myself on a woman (...) I have offered to take a polygraph to support my innocence,” he continued.

Piven said he felt compassion for the victims of sexual misconduct and aggression, adding that he feared that the false accusations against him could undermine victims’ stories that need to be heard.

“We seem to be entering dark times – 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,” the actor added.

Piven concluded his statement saying that to “destroy careers based on mere allegations is not productive on any level. I hope we can use this moment to begin a constructive dialogue on these issues which are real and need to be addressed.”
