Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell are one of the sweetest couples in Hollywood, but someone close to Julie Andrews is trying to break them up. Kayti Edwards, the step-granddaughter of the iconic Mary Poppins actress, gave an interview with Daily Mail, where she claims that she and Shepard shared a "passionate" night together while he was already dating his now-wife.
Edwards recalled meeting up with Shepard at a party two years after he started dating Bell in 2009. According to the former model, they weren't just meeting up to talk.
"I was house-sitting for a girlfriend of mine in Hollywood and there was this party," she recalled. "I think it might have been someone's birthday party or some kind of big event, a lot of celebrities were there, it was at a nightclub in Hollywood."
Shepard and Edwards ran into each other, and that's when things got messy.
"We went back and made love, we had sex twice and he stayed until the next morning," Edwards told the publication.
Edwards also admitted that she and Shepard had known each other for a while, but the only reason for their relationship was to hook up. Shepard never told Edwards about his girlfriend, according to Edwards, and he wasn't too concerned about it.
"I didn't know he had a girlfriend at the time, he didn't seem to care," Edwards continued. "It was just kind of we would hook up here and there. But we had a little friendship when we saw each other."
Edwards also explained her attraction to Shepard, saying it was his down-to-earth attitude that drew her to him.
"He makes you feel comfortable and he's not one of those, you know, standoffish celebrity guys," she recalled. "He's just a normal person, but he's funny. I was attracted to his confidence. I left the Hollywood scene and was on an island somewhere. But I always kept in touch with the people that we were mutual friends with."
As part of her interview with Daily Mail, Edwards shared photos of her and Shepard making out in a photo booth, which she says were taken in 2009. She also says that it was't until after the photos were taken that Shepard admitted he was seeing someone.
"He realized that there was a screen on the outside, so everybody standing in line had just seen us making out in a photo booth and we quickly waited for the pictures and he grabbed them and we scurried off," she claims. "We grabbed the photos and he handed 'em to me and said, 'I can't take these home, you better hang on to them. Because...apparently he had a girlfriend. And it wasn't until later that I realized who his girlfriend was."
Despite going about spreading these rumors around to magazine, Edwards says she doesn't want anything to do with Shepard.
'I don't want anything to do with Dax. I wish him well," she claims. "I wish them to be happy. I hope that they're happily married. I mean they have children. So my wish is that they're happy and stable for the kids."
Not usually one to respond to rumors, Shepard posted on Instagram about the claims being made by Edward.
"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. I look forward to her next one. Fingers crossed it's about my #1, Brad Pitt :)"
Edwards is the daughter of Jennifer Edwards, whose father Blake was married to Julie Andrews from 1969 until his death in 2010.
