Los Angeles [U.S.A], November 9 (ANI): Two-time Emmy award winning actor Jeffrey Tambor is refuting all the allegations that are accusing him of misbehaving with a former assistant.
In response, the actor said in a statement that he "adamantly and vehemently" denies doing anything wrong.
The claims are reportedly being made by Van Barnes, a 42-year-old transgender actress, whose profile was raised by a 2016 appearance on 'I Am Cait'.
In response to the allegations, Tambor, in the statement added, "I am aware that a former disgruntled assistant of mine has made a private post implying that I had acted in an improper manner toward her. I adamantly and vehemently reject and deny any and all implication and allegation that I have ever engaged in any improper behavior toward this person or any other person I have ever worked with. I am appalled and distressed by this baseless allegation."
Tambor is the latest high profile Hollywood figure to be accused of misconduct in a wave that began when dozens of sexual harassment allegations were reported last month against film mogul Harvey Weinstein. (ANI)
