Jeremy Piven offers to take lie detector test after sexual misconduct claims
Piven warned against 'dark times' that are seeing claims of sexual misconduct made public without 'a hearing, due process or evidence'.
LONDON - Jeremy Piven has warned against "dark times" where allegations of sexual misconduct are being made public without conclusive proof and offered to take a lie detector test to prove his own innocence.
The former Entourage actor insists the claims made against him by Ariane Bellamar, Cassidy Freeman and Tiffany Bacon Sourby are "absolutely false and completely fabricated" and is determined to do what it takes to prove his innocence.
In a statement on Twitter, he said: "Let me begin by saying that the accusations against me are absolutely false and completely fabricated. I would never force myself on a woman. Period.
"I have offered to take a polygraph to support my innocence. I keep asking myself, 'How does one prove something didn't happen?' "
The 52-year-old actor expressed his concern that what he insists are "false accusations" will detract attention away from other allegations.
And Piven warned against "dark times" that are seeing claims of sexual misconduct made public without "a hearing, due process or evidence”.
