Kit Harington Responds to Rumors He Cheated on Wife Rose Leslie with a Russian Model
It has only been five months since Kit Harington and Rose Leslie married in a fairytale-worthy ceremony at a castle in Scotland, and the couple is already dealing with an alleged cheating scandal.
A Russian model Olga Vlasova claims to have had an affair with the Game of Thrones actor during his engagement with Leslie, and says they continued to see each other after he tied the knot in June.
Vlasova told a local magazine that she and Harington met in Luxembourg and slept together several times. Additionally, the model shared a nude photo that's supposedly of Harington with the same publication, according to ET Canada.
The actor vehemently denies Vlasova's allegations, telling People that the claims are "completely false."
“The allegations in this story are completely false,” a rep for the actor reveals to People. “He’s never even been to Luxembourg nor has he ever met Olga Vlaslova.”
Harington and Leslie's love story began on the HBO hit show, where the couple first met in 2012. They confirmed their romance in April 2016 and were engaged the following year, before marrying this June.
According to Harington, while filming season two of GoT in Iceland, he and Leslie began to fall for each other.
“Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love,” he said in a cover story for L’Uomo Vogue, explaining why those weeks are his favorite of the series. “If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love.”
Let's hope these rumors just remain tabloid gossip.
