Dax Shepard is firing back at the rumors that he cheated on Kristen Bell with Julie Andrews’ granddaughter, Kayti Edwards. The actor took to social media this week and outright denied the allegations, calling out Edwards for lying about other affairs in the past.
“Hey Daily Mail, that photo is 13 years old, not 9. Also, Kayti has sold stories to tabloids about Matthew Perry, Jack Osbourne, Kid Rock, and now me,” Shepard wrote on Instagram.
Yes. And her proof is a photo of us in 2005 (the last time I saw her). Additionally, I'm the fourth story she's sold to a tabloid (Matthew Perry, Jack Osbourne, Kid Rock, and now me!). #merrychristmas https://t.co/xQPQJ8vlYi

The cheating rumors originated after Edwards told Daily Mail that she hooked up with Shepard while he was dating Bell. Edwards claims that they met at a Hollywood party nine years ago and immediately hit it off. After a brief conversation, Edwards says they went into a photo booth and made out. The two then allegedly had sex at a friend’s house nearby.
Edwards told the outlet that Shepard did not seem to mind that he was cheating on Bell at the time.
Daily Mail released images of the two making out in the photo booth, along with Edwards’ account of what happened. Shepard obviously did not deny that he hooked up with Edwards, but he insists that it happened while he was still single.
Bell and Shepard exchanged vows in the fall of 2013. The couple has two daughters, Lincoln and Delta.
Although Edwards accused Shepard of being unfaithful, she hopes that his marriage is okay. She does not, however, want to rekindle things with the actor — not that he wants to anyway.
Shepard and Bell, meanwhile, have always been pretty open about their marriage. In fact, Bell recently shared a few secrets on how they have managed to keep their relationship strong over the years.
@daxshepard said this was years & years ago, therefore irrelevant. Kind of like she is. Start reporting on more interesting news.

The actress revealed that, among other things, she and Shepard cuddle often and make it a point to remain physical. This makes them feel connected, especially given their busy schedules.
So far, the two have managed to weather the storms and are still going strong. Here’s to hoping they keep it that way.
Kristen Bell has not commented on the cheating rumors surrounding Dax Shepard.
