According to a tweet from “Whiplash” star Miles Teller, he was assaulted in a bathroom in Hawaii by two males.
Teller was in Maui with his wife Keleigh Sperry, his “Divergent” co-star Shailene Woodley, and her fiancé, NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers, at the time.
Teller’s wife Sperry also commented to a TMZ post on Friday, stating in an Instagram post that the rumors about Teller owing money for the couple’s wedding were incorrect.
According to NBC Connecticut, Sperry commented, “The narrative published about Miles getting struck in the face by @TMZ over money is entirely incorrect.” “After trapping Miles in a restroom, two men we’ve never met jumped him.”
According to Us Weekly, Sperry’s Instagram account also stated that the accused assailants had “We appreciate your support, Maui, as we’ve done this to a lot of people. This is now being investigated as a criminal matter.”
The Instagram story, which is only visible for 24 hours, has not been viewed by NBC News.
Teller was not named as the victim, and neither were the suspects, according to the spokeswoman.
A spokesman stated that an inquiry is ongoing, but no other information was provided at the time.
