Actor Josh Duhamel's publicist has lashed out at reports her client cheated on his wife Fergie with a stripper, branding the allegations "absolutely ridiculous".
The Transformers star was targeted in a recent U.S. tabloid expose, which suggested he had bedded stripper Nicole Forrester in an Atlanta, Georgia hotel earlier this month (Oct09).
Duhamel, who wed Black Eyed Peas star Fergie in January (09), allegedly met the erotic dancer in a club called Tattletales Lounge, and wooed her by claiming he was in Atlanta shooting a porn film, according to The National Enquirer.
But Duhamel's representative has shot down the story, claiming the publication must have paid Forrester to lie about the alleged tryst.
The spokesperson says, "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."
According to E! Online, a lawyer representing Forrester insists the stripper passed a polygraph (lie detector) test before her shocking story was published.
