Ever so slightly slanderous there ..
I don't believe there ever was any kind of relationship between Geri and Brand. They've actually been friends for many years and I suspect that the picture of them "caught" together was no more than that. Neither of them has explicitly confirmed it to the best of my knowledge.
Did she rush to deny it, Jason? Or do you think that she was pleased (desperate for) the publicity - fake story or not?
She is a media whore. Media whores (male or female) are not universally adored.
