Jeremy Piven did exactly what he said he would do — he sat for a lie detector test to prove that he did not fondle Arianne Bellamar on the set of “Entourage,” and he passed with flying colors.
The Blast obtained Piven’s polygraph exam report, administered by a member of the American Polygraph Association with Chapman Investigations on November 13.
Since the accusations first came out, Piven insisted they never happened, that they were complete lies, and said he was willing to take the lie detector test to back up his story.
According to the report, the purpose of the test was “to determine if Mr. Piven had ever ‘grabbed’ or touched Ms. Arianne Bellamar, without consent or otherwise, on the buttocks and/or breast area, while on the set of Entourage and/or at the Playboy Mansion, approximately five years ago.” It was also to determine if Adrianne Bellamar was ever even in his trailer, as she claims.
During the test, Piven was asked questions like:
“Did you ever ‘grab’ and/or fondle Ms. Arieanne Bellamar’s breasts?”
“Did you ever ‘corner’ Ms. Bellamar in your trailer so that you could ‘grab’ her breasts and/or buttocks?”
“Did Ms. Bellamar ever enter your trailer on the set of Entourage?”
For each of the questions asked, Piven answered “no.”
The polygraphist evaluated Piven’s answers and determined that the actor showed “no reactions indicative of deception to any of the relevant questions” and that he passed.
As for Bellamar, her track record for truth is not so clean.
In 2016, she was hit for a $2 million judgment after her mother-in-law and father-in-law accused Bellamar and her husband of libel, false light, cyber piracy and internet impersonation.
Earlier this year, she was sued by businessman Andrew Puzder for libel after he claimed she wrote defamatory posts about him on Twitter. That case is still ongoing.
Piven also took polygraph tests for the two other women who have accused him of sexual assault, Tiffany Bacon and Amy Meador, as well as a blanket test to determine if he HAS EVER assaulted a woman.
He passed all his additional tests with no signs of deception.
He also commented on the issue of public figures being attacked based upon allegations, saying:
“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.”
We reached out to Bellamar for comment on Piven’s polygraph test and her own track record, so far no word back.
