Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat denies Antonio Banderas cheating rumors: ‘He’s an acquaintance of mine’
The starlet, who was recorded dancing closely with Banderas in Cannes two years ago, denied any involvement in his split with wife of 18 years, Melanie Griffith.
Did Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith’s split have to do with another woman?
Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat, who was rumored to have played a part in the demise of the couple’s 18-year union, has completely denied the claims.
Sherawat was filmed dancing with Banderas at Cannes two years ago, and according to a Radar Online report she went on vacation with the 53-year-old married actor.
“Antonio Banderas is a wonderful man, a great dancer and an acquaintance of mine. I did not go on any vacation with him, and I’m sorry he’s going through a divorce,” Sherawat said in a statement, slamming the report.
An alleged pal of Sherawat, Ivan Bitton, told Radar about the PDA between the two at Cannes but reportedly insisted he didn’t release the video of them getting up close and personal on the dance floor.
“Ivan Bitton is not my best friend,” Sherawat added.
“I hired him as a stylist at Cannes and then fired him. I’m sure he released the video. I don’t know what he’s even talking about now. I haven’t been in touch with Ivan since I fired him. Whatever he’s saying about me is ridiculous.”
Griffith and Banderas confirmed their break up earlier this month.
“We have thoughtfully and consensually decided to finalize our almost 20 years marriage in a loving and friendly manner honoring and respecting each other, our family and friends and the beautiful time we have spent together.”
