The Daily Mail published a story yesterday from a woman who is celebrity adjacent, Kayti Edwards. She’s an allegedly 41 year-old former model along with being Julie Andrews’ granddaughter. Kayti claims to have had an ongoing friends with benefits relationship with Dax Shepard, 43, with their last encounter happening at a party in 2009. Kayti has photobooth pictures where she’s making out with Dax which you can see them on the DM’s site. It’s not just a playful exchange, it’s full on foreplay and I don’t doubt that she was with him that night. Plus she shares details but I’ll spare you. It’s stuff you can’t unlearn. In 2009 Dax had been with his current wife, Kristen Bell, for two years. They had their first baby in 2013 and got married later that year. So Dax would have been cheating on Kristen. Only he says that the photos are from 13 years old, not nine as Kayti claims, and that she’s sold stories about her other relationships with famous men.
I like how the DM put the photo of Dax kissing Kristen on their sponcon vacation right next to the photo of him making out with Kayti. I believe him that it was 13 years ago, not nine. I believe him because if he was fibbing about it he would have picked a number that’s closer to Kayti’s, like 11 years or something. My favorite comment response to this IG is this one “she needs to wash her dirty mind on that @samsungus washer you and Kristen promoted awhile back.” LOL!
This reminds me of a couple in my circle who are so annoyingly OTT on social media. (That’s part of the reason I don’t do facebook anymore and also why I try to hide my job from friends – so I can talk about them.) Mutual friends told me that he cheated on her, early in their relationship, with another woman he met at one of our parties. They’re not a poly couple either, they’re exclusive and always acting like they’re amazingly in love. Also the other woman bragged to the current girlfriend, in front of witnesses, about shagging him! (I’m not British I just like that word.) A lot of us find the girlfriend annoying and I am sorry I missed that exchange.
Getting back to this story, If Dax cheated on Kristen regularly, I feel like we would have heard about it. Maybe they’re at a level of fame where people don’t go digging to find anything about them though, especially since they share so much on social media.
