Trouble began brewing when Star reported in August and September 2010 that Ashton had allegedly had flings with three different women, including 21-year-old Brittney Jones, who even claimed she had a sex tape that turned out to be fake. The actor took to Twitter to defend himself: "I think Star magazine calling me a 'cheater' qualifies as defamation of character. I hope my lawyer agrees." To which Demi replied, "Excellent point my love!" They then showed a united front when Ash visited Demi on the set of her new movie and then by appearing together at the Clinton Global Initiative.
