Washington, (ANI): American actor Josh Duhamel's publicist has slammed reports that her client cheated on his wife Fergie with a stripper, and has branded the allegations 'absolutely ridiculous'. Duhamel, 36, was recently targeted by a U.S. tabloid, which suggested he had bedded stripper Nicole Forrester in an Atlanta, Georgia hotel earlier this month.
According to the National Enquirer, the actor, who wed Black Eyed Peas star Fergie in January, allegedly met the erotic dancer in a club called Tattletales Lounge, and wooed her by claiming he was in Atlanta shooting a porn film. But Duhamel's representative has shot down the story, claiming the publication must have paid Forrester to lie about the alleged tryst.
“This is not the first, nor will it be the last time, that a stripper was paid a large amount of money to sell a false story about a celebrity. This story is absolutely ridiculous," Contactmusic quoted the rep as saying.
According to E! Online, a lawyer representing Forrester insists the stripper passed a polygraph (lie detector) test before her shocking story was published.
