Supermodel Melissa Stetten recently took to Twitter during an overnight flight to update her 29,000 twitter followers about a ‘creep’ named Brian and his attempts to hit on her. However, that Brian turned out to be married actor Brian Presley and he is now fighting back against the accusations that Stetten has spread.
The whole thing started when the two boarded a red-eye flight leaving Los Angeles. They ended up in first-class seats right next to each other and that’s when Brian began to lay on the charm according to model Melissa Stetten.
“No thanks, Brian, the actor sitting next to me on this flight talking about his role with Kurt Russell and his spiritual beliefs.” she tweets from the plane.
Adding: “Brian asked what I do for a living. I said model. He said “oh I love meeting other artists like myself.””
As the barrage of tweets continue, one follower ends up looking for Brian through the IMDB database, tweeting:
Yes, this is BRIAN! RT @Pat_Healy: @MelissaStetten Is this him by any chance? http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0696169/
With the same user asking Stetten to ask Brian how his family is doing.
He said he was engaged for 6 months but broke it off! RT@Pat_Healy: @MelissaStetten Ask him how his wife Erin and son Jackson are.
However, now Brian Presley is speaking out through Facebook and is defending the hours of accusations by Stetten that claim his pick up lines were less than charming.
“I love that I took a red-eye flight to NY, had a 10 minute friendly conversation with the person sitting next to me, had some food, and went to sleep!” says Brian.
“I learned today this person has been tweeting about me drinking beer in the airplane bathroom, and trying to commit adultery with her on the airplane. Really absurd and quite funny!… They Even took pictures of me while I was sleeping. A little WIERD! I was on a soap opera for years and never did the writers write something this good:).”
Adding: “None of what this person said happened is true! I guess in today’s age you have to be careful who you say hello too.
“Sobriety, God, & My Family are the most important things in my life! My Wife Rocks, My Kids Rock, and Sobriety Rocks!!! I will pay this no more attention and I encourage all of you to do the same. God Bless all of you and thank you all for all your support! – Brian”
There’s always three sides to every story, his side, her side, and the truth, and it seems like this is most certainly true in this case.
Who do you think is telling the truth in this social media battle between model Melissa Stetten and actor Brian Presley?
