NEW YORK – The way things are going for Brad Pitt (search), pretty soon tabloids will say he cheated on Jennifer Aniston with ... you.
On Wednesday, reports were flying that actress-model April Florio (search), who auditioned for a role in the movie "Troy," had been pursued by Pitt in the summer of 2003.
After pictures claiming to show the two together began making the rounds, Us Weekly, in a story to be published Friday, quoted Florio as saying "he tried to kiss me" while he was still with Aniston.
Florio said, though, that she had rebuffed him because she didn't want to get involved with someone "in the industry."
Before the day was out, Pitt's publicist, Cindy Guagenti, was claiming the two had never met.
Florio's manager, Anthony Messina, insisted that Florio had been quoted incorrectly and that the article was wholly false. He issued a statement lamenting "journalists who lack credibility."
Claudia DiRomualdo, a publicist for Us Weekly, said the magazine stands by its story.
