Hunk Actor Ashton Kutcher is the latest celebrity to save his reputation into his own hands with a little social networking.
After a week when John Mayer slammed the HuffPo on his blog for reporting that he may be reviving a relationship with ex Jennifer Aniston, Ashton Kutcher loaded it to Twitter to do damage control on a rumor that he’s cheating on Demi Moore.
In an "exclusive report", Star magazine claims that Kutcher, 32, was spotted getting close to a "hot young blonde."
The piece quoted a source saying, “Ashton had this gorgeous girl pinned against the wall, and he was totally making out with her.” The source added that the girl “obviously wasn’t Demi.”
The report began goping around on Wednesday, the same time that photos of a bikini-clad Moore began to surface from the star's Twitter account. It didn’t take long for Kutcher to make his response. “STAR magazine – you don't get to stand behind ‘freedom of the press’ when you are writing fiction,” he tweeted yesterday.
“I think Star magazine calling me a 'cheater' qualifies as defamation of character,” Kutcher added. “I hope my lawyer agrees.” Moore has backed up her husband, tweeting, "Excellent point my love!"
When asked for their rection, a Star magazine rep said the publication stands by the story.
Meanwhile the couple will celebrate their five-year wedding anniversary at the end of September.
