A Greek model has dismissed reports she's dating embattled actor Mel Gibson.
The Braveheart star was rumoured to be moving on from his disastrous relationship with Oksana Grigorieva, who he is currently involved in a bitter custody battle with, by romancing Greek beauty Stella Mouzi.
The pair had been photographed enjoying a series of outings together earlier this month (Jun11), including a trip to Los Angeles' Sky Bar.
But Mouzi has spoken out to deny the accusations, insisting she and Gibson are just friends.
She tells People.com, "I came to the U.S. from Greece a few months ago and was charmed by the American hospitality. I made many new friends including Mel Gibson, with whom I share merely a friendly acquaintance."
And addressing reports she's a fetish model, Mouzi adds, "I am a dancer, performance artist and a photographer - that is the extent of my professional life. It has been difficult to be the subject of false rumours, which have also been hurtful to my friends and family."
