Earlier this year, Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie finally tied the knot, and it was thankfully a beautiful ceremony for the Game of Thrones stars. Since then, we've been lead to assume everything has been happily ever after for the HBO actors, but that was before a cheating scandal made headlines. Kit Harrington is accused of having an affair with Russian model Olga Vlaslova, both before and after he got married to Leslie, but a representative for the actor is claiming these rumors are completely false.
In fact, not only has he remained faithful to his partner, but Kit Harrington hasn't reportedly even met Olga Vlaslova, let alone been to where she claims the adultery happened. Here's a quote from Kit Harrington's representative hoping to clear the dirty air.
The quote from Kit Harington's representative was given to ET Canada. The rebuttal came shortly after a Russian publication drew up controversy by reporting on the alleged affair. In the original story, Olga Vlaslova reportedly shared what she claimed were nude photographs of Kit Harington to authenticate her claims. Though it doesn't sound like the photos were clear enough to prove without a doubt that it was the actor involved, the model believes the evidence is damning enough to report to the media and start a media stir. The previous reports seem to allege Vlaslova slept with Harington over a period of time before and after his marriage to Rose Leslie.
While neither Kit Harington nor Rose Leslie have commented on the claims being made at the moment, the representative speaking on the Jon Snow actor's behalf claims there is no validity to anything Olga Vlaslova is saying to the media these days. Not only has Harington reportedly never met the woman, but the representative claims her client hasn't even been to Luxembourg -- particularly during his engagement and after his marriage to Leslie.
For now, it's a matter of she said, he said (via a representative on his behalf). With wishy-washy info, all we can rely on right now is the representative speaking on Kit Harington's behalf, who appears to be certain there's no truth to these claims. I'm sure no one hopes these rumors prove true, particularly the romantic fans of the fantasy series who have seen Leslie and Harington fall in love on and offscreen. The couple met through their work on the popular program. While they've had an on-and-off relationship throughout the years, they finally got engaged not only ago and they said their "I dos" earlier this year during a lovely spring ceremony.
If there are any more details that spill out regarding the alleged cheating scandal in the days and weeks to come, we'll keep you posted.
