It was initially reported by TMZ that Teller was punched in the face by a supposed wedding planner who allegedly claimed the actor owed him $60,000 in unpaid services from the couple's Maui wedding back in 2019.

But Keleigh made sure to note that "the story being reported about Miles being punched in the face by @TMZ over 'money' is completely false."

It was previously reported that cops confirmed the altercation had taken place, saying no one had been arrested but that they were still investigating.
