EXCLUSIVE – James Stunt corrects entirely invented rumours of his supposedly having become engaged
On Saturday, Matthew Steeples, editor of The Steeple Times, dined at C London with his friend James Stunt and an actress named Samantha Rowley.
Businessman Mr Stunt had previously dined with Miss Rowley on several occasions in the company of friends but ridiculously publications including the Mail on Sunday and The Sun have both bizarrely produced articles suggesting that the duo are “engaged.”
Herewith, speaking exclusively to The Steeple Times, Mr Stunt responds: “I categorically deny that I am romantically involved with Samantha. We met through one of my oldest friends and his fiancée and though she is a delightful lady, we are not engaged. That is all.”
Speaking of the ridiculous non-story, Matthew Steeples adds: “That a newspaper is prepared to suggest that because a man sits at a table in a restaurant with a woman that they are ‘engaged’ is ludicrous. I myself sat with another friend’s girlfriend in another bar yesterday and on that basis, the very same publication could falsely accuse me of having an affair with her also.”
“It is extraordinary that James is unable to dine with others without being written about. The gutter press’ fascination with him is entirely disproportionate and surely it is time that the media focused on printing actual stories rather than simply inventing them.”
