BOSTON (AP) — “Transparent” star Jeffrey Tambor is refuting allegations that he behaved inappropriately toward a former assistant.
Deadline reported Wednesday that Amazon Studios is investigating the allegations. In response, the Emmy-winning actor says in a statement that he “adamantly and vehemently” denies doing anything wrong.
The claims are reportedly being made by a former assistant of Tambor’s. In his statement, Tambor calls the assistant “disgruntled” and adds: “I am appalled and distressed by this baseless allegation.”
Tambor plays the transgender matriarch of the Pfefferman family on “Transparent,” which airs on Amazon.
