Sunny Leone, husband Daniel deny slapgate incident


Indo-Canadian porn star turned Bollywood actress Sunny Leone denied slapping a journalist for asking derogatory question about her profession.

It is reported that Sunny at a Holi event in Gujarat slapped a reporter when the reporter asked her how much she charged for ‘night programmes’ now that she is a movie star. He asked Sunny,“You were a porn star earlier, now you are a film star. So how much do you charge now?”

The incident took place when Sunny Leone went to Gujarat for a Holi event titled, ‘Play Holi with Sunny Leone’. Post the incident, the organisers asked the ‘Jism 2’ actress to perform at the event, as promised Sunny danced to popular Bollywood track from the film for 15 minutes.

However, before committing Sunny informed the organisers that she would come and perform at the event only if there is no media inside.

Sunny arrived at the hotel early in the morning with husband Daniel Weber. Soon after a drunken impostor entered her room and approached Sunny for odd favours from her. However, Sunny Leone took the situation under control.

But she lost her cool when a reporter started interviewing her in the corridor. The reporter asked Leone, “You were a porn star earlier, now you are a film star. So how much do you charge now?”

Listening to the question, Leone lost her cool and at the heat of the moment slapped the journalist in front of the hotel staff and visitors and went back to her hotel room.

Reacting to the incident, her husband Daniel Webber told mid-day, “Sunny has given an apt reply to the reporter so we are not filing any police complaint. The organisers were also college kids so we do not want their careers to be damaged. But henceforth, Sunny will think a thousand times before coming to Gujarat.”

However, Sunny and her husband Daniel Weber later denied the slapgate incident. Daniel Weber was quoted saying that she would ‘think a thousand times before coming to Gujarat again’

Said Daniel, “There is not a single fact of truth to this. It’s a shame that they did not fact check when someone just tells any random story. Even the quote is complete lie. We have called him and proved he has lied.”

When asked what exactly happened at the event, Daniel said, ” Nothing. We don’t know what this person is talking about as there were no interviews at the holi event. If anyone knows us then they would know this could never be true.”
