Actress Helena Bonham Carter has hit out at claims that her long-term partner Tim Burton cheated on her after he was photographed embracing a mystery blonde.
The 47-year-old Harry Potter actress described the
speculation as 'absolute nonsense', insisting Burton, 55, and
the blonde were among a group of family members and friends,
reported Daily Express.
"This is absolute nonsense, the pictures were taken
whilst they were out and the large group includes family,
friends and work colleagues," the actress' representative
The denial came after Bonham Carter was pictured looking
tired as she emerged from a friend's car in North London,
hours after the photographs of her partner were published.
The images showed the Alice in Wonderland helmer in an
apparent embrace with a mystery woman following a cinema date
at the end of September.
Burton, who has been in a long term relationship with
Bonham Carter for 12 years, was caught on camera as they
returned to their car after watching cult film The Wicker
The couple were last seen together in public in March
this year when they attended an event with their children
Billy, nine, and five-year-old Nell.
