Jeffrey Tambor On His Third Accuser’s Claim: It’s An ‘Enthusiastic Farewell’
Jeffrey Tambor now has three accusers saying he sexually harassed them. He, again, released a statement apologizing to Tamara Delbridge’s allegations.
“I have absolutely no recollection of anything like this incident ever happening,” he said. “If it did, it wasn’t meant as anything more than an enthusiastic farewell and gratitude for a job well done at the end of a shoot. However, I am deeply sorry for any discomfort or offense I may have inadvertently caused her.”
Tamara says he forcibly kissed her in 2001. “It was very nice to work with you.” Delbridge remembers saying to him, according to Refinery 29, “he grabbed me out of nowhere and kissed me on the lips… I was just shocked. I didn’t even know how to react, because how do you react when you’re not expecting anything like that? So I didn’t know if I was embarrassed or shocked or mortified or stunned. It was a whole bunch of emotions.”
Jeffrey has since left Transparent, saying that there has been tension on set since the allegations. He will not be appearing in the next season.
