Don’t believe the hype.
That’s the message from Rielle Hunter, who is fighting back against widely picked-up reports that she fought with John Edwards and flew to Los Angeles to see Matt LeBlanc and John Cusack.
“The story is not true,” Hunter’s spokesperson RoseMarie Terenzio tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. “Rielle Hunter has not been to Los Angeles in two years.”
Last week, the National Enquirer reported that Hunter, who has a 2-year-old daughter, Quinn, with Edwards, had been “unfaithful” after she traveled to L.A. to look up “old flames” Cusack and LeBlanc.
But Hunter says she’s never dated LeBlanc or Cusack. “Ms. Hunter has not contacted Matt LeBlanc and she does not know him,” says Terenzio. “Ms. Hunter never dated John Cusack. She had a friendship with him but has not seen or spoken with him in several years.”
As for Rielle’s current relationship with Edwards, Terenzio says, “Ms. Hunter did not have any sort of fight with Mr. Edwards and she and her daughter, Quinn, see Mr. Edwards regularly.”
Friends of the former Senator have told PEOPLE earlier this year that he only sees Hunter as part of the logistics of visiting their daughter.
A rep for John Edwards couldn’t be reached for comment.
