On Thursday, Shepard took to Twitter and Instagram to address a report by DailyMailTV, in which Julie Andrews’ step-granddaughter, Kayti Edwards, alleged that she rekindled a romance with Shepard in 2009, around two years after Shepard started dating Bell.
The Ranch star said that despite the Daily Mail claiming that photos of him and Edwards used in the article were nine years old, they were actually from before he entered his relationship with Bell.
"Hey Daily Mail, that photo is 13 years old, not 9," Shepard wrote on Instagram. "Also, Kayti has sold stories to tabloids about Matthew Perry, Jack Osbourne, Kid Rock, and now me. I look forward to her next one. Fingers crossed it's about my #1, Brad Pitt :)."
Shepard and Bell, who tied the knot in a secret $142 courthouse wedding in 2013, don’t seem to be letting the tabloid reports get to them.
