Jeremy Piven slammed for charging fans $15K for just one 10-minute Zoom call on Cameo – The Sun

ENTOURAGE star Jeremy Piven has been criticized for charging an astonishing $15,000 for one ten-minute Zoom call with fans.

The actor has joined video service Cameo which connects stars with their fans, either via a pre-recorded message or a live chat.

However, it was revealed on social media by journalist Jensen Karp that the actor was charging the extortionate fees for the calls, and fans were quick to hit out with their own allegations against the 54-year-old.

One tweet read: "If Jeremy Piven was giving a free 10 minute talk in my living room, I'd toss him my keys and say 'gotta few errands to run J bone, if you don’t care lock up when you leave.'"

Another critic joked: "I would pay (not 15k but I would pay) to not need to go on a Zoom call with this man."

In reply to Jensen's tweet, one reply claimed: "My old roommate went on a date with him and he yelled at her for wearing heels since she was already taller than him anyway."

"Dude is tripping, Karreem is only $500," mocked another, referencing the cost to speak to former Lakers basketball player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

In 2017, the Mr Selfridge star denied claims he had groped an ex-Playboy model’s breasts in his trailer and at the Playboy Mansion.

Jeremy denied the "appalling allegations" against him after becoming another Hollywood figure to be accused of sexual harassment amid the Me Too movement.

Actress Ariane Bellamar claimed Jeremy groped her on two occasions, once on the set of the Emmy winner's show Entourage, and again at the Playboy Mansion.

In a statement, the actor said: "I unequivocally deny the appalling allegations being peddled about me.

"It did not happen. It takes a great deal of courage for victims to come forward with their histories, and my hope is that the allegations about me that didn't happen do not detract from stories that should be heard."

He later alleged that he became an “easy target” during the Harvey Weinstein scandal as the public assumed he was like TV character Ari Gold — the aggressive, womanising and loathsome agent he plays in Entourage.

Speaking for the first time about the impact the claims had on his career, he said: “You play a major Hollywood guy, who is very abrasive, and we all know those people — they exist, and they’re not so fun. It’s fun to watch, but we don’t want to be around them.

“That’s an easy target to take a shot at. Not only who wouldn’t believe it, but who wouldn’t rally behind it to take that guy down?’”
