Jeremy Piven is currently in Bangkok undergoing treatment for mercury poisoning, and no matter how ridiculous that just sounded, he currently has a new girlfriend – 23 year old bottle waitress and ex-model, Ashley Chontos. The pair met at Britney Spears’ 27th birthday party earlier this month and it was love at first sight. And when I say “love at first sight”, I mean whatever means the exact opposite of that. Gatecrasher reports:
Despite Piven’s obvious interest, an insider tells us that the ex-Choice Model was actually runnerup for the actor’s affections. “Jeremy met several girls at Britney’s birthday party,” the source says. “He was really interested in a model who happens to be Ashley’s direct competition, but he was so insistent in his pursuit that he freaked her out. She stopped returning his calls, so he settled for Ashley in the long run.” Says another source: “He’s a numbers boy. He gathers up girls’ numbers when he’s out. That night, he sent out a mass text to everyone he’d met, saying, ‘Come to my room – whoever responds first gets me for the night.’”
Piven is a massive prick and a notorious horndog, so it really shouldn’t come as a shock to think that he would believe a good game would be anything with him as a prize at the end. Although I have to admit, the “fire enough and something will eventually hit” tactic is pretty effective. It works particularly well in games of capture the flag or if you’re trying avoid landmines in Cambodia.
