UPDATE (10/31, 9:30 p.m. EST): Jeremy Piven has released the following statement to Deadline: "I unequivocally deny the appalling allegations being peddled about me. I've known Jeremy Piven for a very long time, he's like, the nicest f-king guy I've ever met", she told The Blast.

Jeremy Piven has already spoken out against the allegations that he groped former reality TV star Ariane Bellamar on two occasions.

"She later said, "'Member when I tried to leave; you grabbed me by the a**, looked at yourself in the mirror, & said what a "beautiful couple" we made?" The incident with Piven in his "Entourage" trailer reportedly occurred again at the Playboy Mansion.

Bellamar used Twitter to put Piven on notice on Monday, and made the allegation public with some bombshell tweets. "'Member grabbing my boobies on the (couch) without asking?? I was defending my friend jeremy that has been nothing but nice man".

The star went on to say that she knew about Weinstein more than 10 years ago, but doesn't have any issues with him.

Brazile said she investigated after hacked committee emails were published indicating the nomination process had been rigged. Brazile blasted the agreement in her book, saying it "was not illegal, but it sure looked unethical".

HBO said Bellamar's Twitter statements were the first they had heard of his alleged behaviour, and that they take claims of sexual harassment seriously.

Piven now stars on the CBS Sunday night drama "Wisdom of the Crowd". The show is still in production as scheduled.

In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, more and more people are bravely speaking up about the sexual misconduct they've experienced in Hollywood.

Since the show is unable to address what it called 'recent developments, ' Piven's segment is being replaced with a new guest, according to a statement by the Late Show.

Wisdom of the Crowd, in which Piven portrays a tech genius trying to hunt down his daughter's killer, premiered on October 1.
