Piven Not A Diva

Published on September 08, 2008 with No Comments

Entourage¬†star Jeremy Piven has been forced to deny his “diva” antics cost him the job of hosting a forthcoming fashion event in New York.

The actor hosted Fashion Rocks in 2007 but this year he has been replaced by Rescue Me star Denis Leary – amid rumours that Piven’s outlandish demands infuriated staff at last year’s event.

A source tells New York Post gossip column PageSix that the star demanded a separate backstage green room and insisted on rewriting the script at the last minute.

The source said: “(Piven) was a nightmare. And it wasn’t even funny. (This year will see) a more trustworthy and mature host.”

But a representative for Piven has denied that the star acted inappropriately at last year’s concert – insisting he worked hard to perfect his onstage routine.

The spokesman said: “Not true. He had his own room, just like everyone else, and came in a week early to work on the script as expected.”

Fashion Rocks Рa collaboration between musicians and fashion designers Рwill this year feature performances from Beyoncé Knowles, Rihanna and Justin Timberlake and will air in the US on 9 September.
