Jason's rep insisted that the actor was not involved in a bar fight with Robert in L.A., adding that the 'Transporter' actor has not been in L.A. for a while now.
A rep for Jason Statham has debunked swirling rumor that the "Transporter 3" actor was entangled in a bar fight with Robert Pattinson over his rumored lover Kristen Stewart. And as the rumor mentioned that Jason and Robert had the alleged rift in an L.A. bar, the rep added that Jason isn't in L.A. for a while now.
The bar fight story was run by Hollywood Life after picking up Us Weekly report. With a headline saying "Robert Pattinson Gets In Bar Fight With Action Star Protecting Kristen Stewart!", the site noted, "US Weekly reports that after actor Jason Statham hit on girlfriend Kristen at an L.A. bar, Rob stepped in."
The site went on quoting a pal as saying, "Jason is totally jacked and Rob is scrawny. But Rob said, 'I think you've had enough time with her.' They got heated." However, before things reportedly got out of control, bouncers were said stepping in to stop the two actors.
While Robert and Kristen have been rumored dating since they first starred together in the first installment of "Twilight" movie series, Jason has been dating Rosie Huntington-Whiteley who is lately linked to her "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" co-star Shia LaBeouf. Shia, in the meantime, recently split from girlfriend Carey Mulligan.
