Moby Slams Natalie Portman’s Claim That They Never Dated

Natalie Portman recently denied that she and Moby dated telling Harpar’s Bazaar

“I was surprised to hear that he characterised the very short time that I knew him as dating because my recollection is a much older man being creepy with me when I just had graduated high school,” Portman told us. “He said I was 20; I definitely wasn’t. I was a teenager. I had just turned 18.

But Moby says that’s not true.

He shared a throwback pic of the two together saying

“I recently read a gossip piece wherein Natalie Portman said that we’d never dated. This confused me, as we did, in fact, date. And after briefly dating in 1999 we remained friends for years. I like Natalie, and I respect her intelligence and activism. But, to be honest, I can’t figure out why she would actively misrepresent the truth about our(albeit brief)involvement.”

and added “I completely respect Natalie’s possible regret in dating me(to be fair, I would probably regret dating me, too),” he added on Instagram. “But it doesn’t alter the actual facts of our brief romantic history.”

he went on to address trolls saying:

Dear trolls,
While I’m flattered by the attention, I just don’t know if the best use of your time and your life is hating a stranger based on egregiously limited information. I mean, when you are on your deathbed do you really want to think, “at least I spent my time hating strangers on social media”?
It is of course your life, but I just have to assume there are better things to do with your time…but again, thank you for all of the attention, it’s very flattering.
