Giovanni Agnelli said in a Twitter update “the spin that keeps growing on this story is staggering. There was NO on set affair. Stop printing LIES”

“I’ll say right now what the manipulative media isn’t saying… Kristen Stewart did not have any type of sex with Rupert Sanders,” he claimed.

Agnelli had previously made a no-holds-barred attack on gossip website Hollywood Life, saying “hope nobody thinks shit for brains gossip sites like @HollywoodLife are real! They puke lies, lick them up, and puke them out again.”

Sanders, 41, is said to have returned to his wife British model Liberty Ross while Stewart’s partner Robert Pattinson last week moved out of the home they shared. He released a statement last week saying “My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.”

Film director Stewart said in a statement last week “I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected.

“This momentary indiscretion has jeopardised the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”
