Matt LeBlanc has been accused of cheating on his longtime girlfriend of eight years, Andrea Anders, but according to the Episodes star’s rep the accusations are simply not true.
According to In Touch Weekly, LeBlanc was seen partying with “several scantily clad women” during a Halloween party. A source told the tabloid that LeBlanc “maintained a low profile earlier in the night, but around 1:30 a.m., he started getting very flirty with the bottle service girls.”
Usually you don’t hear about celebrities refuting silly rumors but Matt’s rep took this accusation somewhat seriously by responding to it in the first place. According to E!, who was given an exclusive, the actor’s rep said, “That absolutely did not happen. Fans were coming up to him all night asking for pictures.”
In fact, as the story goes he was just trying to be a nice guy, and the scantily glad women were just fans.
Here’s a photo of Matt at the Halloween party with a scantily glad woman.

Here’s some fans reacting to the rumor.

LeBlanc and his girlfriend Anders met on his failed spin-off Joey and dated shortly after he divorced his wife Melissa McKnight. Back then, a friend of Matt’s ex wife told People that it was a very sudden decision. “She was absolutely blindsided by what transpired. She wanted to do counseling or therapy, but Matt just didn’t want to work it out.”
At the time LeBlanc’s rep had said, “We’re not interested in having a public discussion about private family matters.”
Boy, has that tune changed.
Either way, it’s said LeBlanc left the Halloween party alone and didn’t walk off with his fans. We doubt this story about LeBlanc will go too far. These days it seems like the Friends actor is doing well both personally and professionally, which was a far cry when he split from his ex-wife.
Currently he’s on a critically acclaimed show called Episodes, where he plays a version of himself. Back in 2012 he won a Golden Globe for his performance and has been nominated for three Emmys for the series.
