Miles Teller and his wife, Keleigh Sperry Teller, claimed last week that he was attacked in a Hawaii restaurant by two strangers. However, a lawyer said that the men are known to the couple, who he alleges owe money for wedding planning services.
Sperry Teller took to Instagram and said that “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.”
Sperry Teller dismissed a TMZ story in her Instagram story, claiming, “The story reported about Miles being punched in the face by @TMZ over ‘money’ is completely false.” Whatever teh case may be, he definitely got punched, because Teller is back from vacation and sporting a black eye from that assault.
Teller, who was on vacation in Hawaii with Aaron Rodgers and his fiance, said in a tweet that he had “never met them before in my life.”
Tre Lovell, an attorney for one of the men who allegedly attacked Teller, told E! News on Sunday that his client’s wife helped plan their wedding.
“My clients are considering legal action based upon the incident as well as on the parties’ previous business dealings,” Lovell said in a statement.
No one has yet to be arrested for the incident. A spokesperson for the Maui Police Department told People last week that they “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.”
