Michigan model Melissa Stetten did more than just make idle conversation with actor Brian Presley aboard a red eye flight the other night.

Stetten live Tweeted Presley’s advances – his hilarious, alleged advances – and her Tweets went viral, given that he’s married with a kid.

The publicly, devoutly sober Presley supposedly had three beers, too, but that’s just her side of the story, and it’s wrong, he claims.

On Friday, Presley, who stars in Touchback with Kurt Russell, posted a note to his Facebook page denying the entire alleged incident.

“I took a red eye flight to NY, had a 10-minute friendly conversation with the person sitting next to me, had some food, and went to sleep!”

He continued: “I learned today this person has been tweeting about me drinking beer in the airplane bathroom, and trying to commit adultery with her on the airplane.”

“Really absurd and quite funny!”

“None of what this person said happened is true,” Brian went on. “I guess in today’s age you have to be careful who you say hello too. Sobriety, God, & My Family are the most important things in my life!”

Regardless, Stetten’s in-flight narration caused quite a stir.

Throughout her series of Tweets, Stetten offered colorful commentary for thousands of followers as she seemingly rejected his advances.

According to Stetten, Presley said of his wedding ring that he “just wears the ring because he likes it,” then took it off in the bathroom.

“No thanks, Brian, the actor sitting next to me on this flight talking about his role with Kurt Russell and his spiritual beliefs,” she wrote.

“Brian is now talking about how he is an artist and believes everything happens for a reason, like how we’re brought together on this flight.”

Stetten also reported that Presley “was wasted” after consuming three beers on the flight. Among her final Tweets on the subject:

“Did I just ruin Brian Presley’s life via Twitter?”

Either he doesn’t think so, or he’s a pretty good actor.
