AceShowbiz - Miles Teller's wife Keleigh has defended the star after he was attacked in a restaurant, insisting the incident was completely unprovoked.
It was originally reported that the actor was assaulted over a financial dispute at the Monkeypod Kitchen in Maui, Hawaii on Wednesday (26May21), but Keleigh has now hit back at the "false" reports.
"The story reported about Miles being punched in the face over 'money' is completely false," she wrote on her Instagram Stories. "Miles was jumped by 2 men we have never met after they trapped him in a bathroom."
"It seems these same men have done this to many people and we appreciate your support Maui. This is now a criminal investigation. (sic)" While Keleigh claims two men attacked Miles, Maui Police Department officials previously only mentioned one attacker.
They said in a statement, "Police responded to a report of an assault that occurred at a West Maui restaurant involving a male victim and one responsible party. The incident is currently under investigation; no further information is available at this time."
Miles Teller tied the knot with Keleigh Sperry in September 2019. While a lot of couples felt the strain of spending so much time together during Covid-19 lockdown last year, he insisted they became stronger than ever instead.
"Keleigh and I both worked on our backyard and did some landscaping. We planted a lemon tree, hydrangeas and a rose garden," the actor revealed in a 2020 interview. "Since we were staring at our backyard a whole lot more than usual, we wanted to add colour."
