Dax Shepard denies cheating on Kristen Bell, but his hookup has details and photos

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.

    Julie Andrew’s grandbaby…is a WHOLE ENTIRE MESS! And has been for more than a minute….

    And if I were Kirsten…I would be like…

    “Ok…AND?!?! …Chile, it’s finna be 2020 in a minute….whatever…”

    • Mia4s says:

      Yeah I mean…YIKES. You’re 41 years old and getting attention by selling stories to the Daily Fail about consensual hookups that even you admit were at least a decade ago? Time to get a hobby or go back to school, or something!

      As I always say when these things are consensual: True or not, it’s his family’s business now. As for Julie Andrews’ granddaughter? Yikes.

      • Kate says:

        No no you have it all wrong. She just wanted to “get ahead of the story” after a picture she posted onto social media generated interest in the story *eyeroll* What a POS stirring up gross ancient history for a family right at the holidays.

      • Jerusha says:

        She sounds tacky, tacky, tacky. How can she possibly be related to Julie Andrews??

      • Kebbie says:

        She’s the granddaughter of Blake Edwards, Julie Andrews’ deceased husband, so she’s not blood related at all. Kayti is the daughter of Jennifer Edwards, who was Blake’s daughter from his first marriage (Julie was his second wife.)

      • lucy2 says:

        That’s interesting Kebbie – every headline I’ve seen of this calls her Julie’s granddaughter, Julie’s probably like HELL NO!

      • SK says:

        Three things bother me about this story:

        1. That fugly brown and blue outfit Kristen is wearing.

        2. That someone adjacent to the glorious Julie Andrews could be so tacky (bogan spelling of name, tacky behaviour, etc.)

        3. That they call her Julie Andrews’ granddaughter when she is not.

    • Ms says:

      Yep, someone seems hard up for cash. I believe Dax on this one.

    • tealily says:

      Haha right???

  2. Fluffy Princess says:

    This is a good strategy on Dax’s part. Just put it out there up front and say, “Nooooope.” It’s nice that someone slaps the DM hard in the face once in a while. They deserve it.

    And frankly, I thought his reference to Brad Pitt was pretty funny.

  3. Rocky says:

    I’ve always found these two so creepy with their over sharing . Wouldn’t sunrise me if it was all fake

    • limepo says:

      +1000, I know right? So glad to hear I’m not the only one.

      • Lady2Lazy says:

        I don’t know why, I have never been able to put my finger on it, but I have never liked him in any sense, platform or situation. Doesn’t he remind you of the guy in high school behaving like a complete douche with not an ounce of respect towards anyone. While he portrays himself as the answer to everyone’s prayers?

    • Case says:

      I agree? They seem like nice people but the constant talk of couples therapy and how much they argue and how HEALTHY THAT IS and all the other marriage-related stuff they need to mention constantly is just weird to me.

    • BlueSky says:

      I mean, would you be bragging about sleeping with Dax Sheppard??? The Rock, sure, but Dax Sheppard??? Not exactly a catch….

  4. Gail says:

    Is it wrong that my first and foremost concern is how this affects Julie Andrews?

    • damejudi says:

      Hitting the like button on your comment-I thought the same thing!

    • Bubbalouie says:

      For some reason I thought she passed away…

      • Spicecake38 says:

        I was thinking that too,then I realized I was thinking about Florence Henderson from the Brady Bunch.They always remind me of each other.

      • tealily says:

        That’s so funny, I just had this conversation with my husband yesterday when we saw an ad for the new Mary Poppins. He thought she had died, I was like “What?? Not that I’ve heard!!” and it took a Google to settle it.

    • Originaltessa says:

      This girl isn’t her biological granddaughter. It’s her husband’s from another relationship. So no shared dna, which I think is relevant.

    • Ashley says:

      The best comment ever! 😂 my first thought upon reading this post – oh, Julie, you don’t deserve this, you national treasure, you!

    • Raina says:

      No, it’s not wrong. I’ll be watching the Sound of.Music with a little more gusto this holiday season.

      Dax is one seriously wet kisser. Like, they just showered in a photo booth.

    • Ams says:

      Hahaha no gail I’m also really concerned about Julie Andrews!! There’s no way Mary Poppins would have this nonsense coming out about her family 😂😂

  5. Kerfuffle says:

    Dax had a REPUTATION back in the day. Word was that he cheated on everyone back when he was using, and he wasn’t a big fixture on the blogs (because he was just that dude from Punked) but it was definitely out there when he dated Kate Hudson for a minute.

    • Isabelle says:

      Which is 99% of Hollywood men, they all cheat. Fame means accessibility, can’t imagine unless the man is a saint, any man resisting sex.

  6. holly hobby says:

    For whatever reason I believe him. On the other hand, although it makes great press to say she’s Julie’s “granddaughter,” I think this one is the spawn of one of Blake’s children. Julie had one daughter, Emma Walton. To my knowledge, Blake never adopted Emma so this would be all on Blake’s family. Yes I’m saying it right now, Mary Poppins would have never had someone like this related to her.

  7. Mina says:

    Even if it was true, how desperate for fame/money you have to be to sell almost a decade old photos with Dax Shepard of all people

  8. Hurricane K says:

    The DM article says she is the step granddaughter of Julie Andrews. Just wanted to mention that. (Unless the DM is wrong?)

  9. me says:

    Kayti seems like a f*cking mess of a woman. Does she have nothing better to do than hook up with famous men and then sell the stories? If Dax was single, he did nothing wrong other than hook up with a thirsty woman !

  10. Usedtobe says:

    Although Kristin and Dax drive me crazy with their oversharing, I totally believe him.

  11. girl_ninja says:

    So what’s her agenda? Does Kayti Edwards want to a book deal or a spot on reality tv? It Dax Shepard, not George Clooney or Bradley Cooper.

    I would never admit that I was raw dogging Kid Rock. EVER.

  12. RedWeatherTiger says:

    I totally DON’T believe him. He never lies to his children, remember? Why put that story out there unless you were setting up an “i’m so honest, so don’t believe it when something bad comes out about me!” excuse. Dax has always given me the major creeps, and I don’t understand how any woman could kiss him, let alone hook up with or marry him.

    • Erinn says:

      I don’t think it’s related at all. It’s the holiday season – people talk about kids and Santa in a ton of interviews with celebs who are parents.

      The photos look old – her face is look a LOT older in the newest photos of her that I’ve seen – and those are photos that she’s done a lot of makeup and posed for. She’s not a complete moron – she’s going to do her best to look really good in the new photos. But the photo booth photos there’s not a line on her face, and she seems like she’s really not wearing much makeup.

      In this year ALONE she was accused in February of being Kid Rock’s mistress for a decade, in May was supposedly cheating with Jack Osbourne, August she sold stories about Matthew Perry, and now this. It seems to be every few months she’s getting her name out there. She’s done a bunch of interviews about being Julie’s (step) grand daughter and prior to that she posed in Hustler dressed as Mary Poppins and Julie was apparently considering litigation – she REALLY has a need to be famous and use other people to get there. It’s definitely very suspicious. Does it mean that she’s automatically lying? No. But it definitely makes her credibility not very stellar. Dax has been pretty honest about what a mess his life has been but he’s also been very honest about the amount of therapy he’s done to work through his issues. And it seems like once he got clean he really turned himself around.

  13. Anastasia says:

    Yeah, I thought those photobooth pics of Dax looked older than just nine years.

    • Fanny says:

      A cheater would not be posing for photobooth makeout photos with his hookup, so I believe him.

    • Usedtobe says:

      I’m pretty sure he was also partying HARD back then so that could have a lot to do with how old he looks. Plus I firmly believe he’s had work done to his face.

  14. Isabelle says:

    If it even happened the girl is thirsty for fame and exposing something which happened years ago? She is out for something, money or fame. Please move along would be my response to her

  15. Sayrah says:

    I believe him. Even if Kayti (what a spelling) is correct about 2009, it’s almost 10 years ago, they weren’t married and had no kids yet. Thirsty woman is thirsty. Yawn

  16. Bubbalouie says:

    “I didn’t know he had a girlfriend.” Isn’t that something you ask BEFORE you make out with someone?

  17. mtam says:

    Someone mentioned how different his appearance was from 2009 when those pics are alleged to have happened and 2006/2005 when he said it happened. Mainly you can tell the difference in how long his hair was in 2009. Even wearing a hat it would be hard to cover it.

    Also i always thought if he were to cheat on Kristen i’d be with a guy.

  18. Jess says:

    “It’s like a horse”, I am shocked by that for some reason! And yes this story seems ridiculous, first of all if he was cheating why the hell would he give her the pictures if he was acting so weird about people seeing them? Lol, that makes no sense, he would’ve held onto them and personally destroyed them. I just don’t think he’s dumb enough to cheat on what he has.

  19. Veronica S. says:

    Eh…not that I doubt stories of Hollywooders cheating because it’s practically Tuesday for most of them, but those photos do look old to me. How often do you actually find photobooths anymore, as it was? I haven’t seen one in well over a decade, so the 2009 dating makes me raise an eyebrow.

    • Olive says:

      they’re still popular, especially the vintage ones. i see them at every mall, and people rent them for big events or weddings.

  20. paddingtonjr says:

    Won’t anyone think of poor Julie Andrews?! LOL. I generally tune out Dax and Kristen because they are just too cute but I’m on their side on this one. I think the pictures were taken before he and Kristen were together. And, really, what is the point of leaking this story? Does Kayti need attention?

  21. Nibbi says:

    Good lord, THAT’S the same person at 41?!! She’s only 41?!
    Kinda wonder what kind of hard partying/ sun-worshiping/ ? was going on there, cuz damn…

  22. nikzilla says:

    This famwh*re has been in the news before- I call BS. Also, she makes me feel great because we are the same age and she looks so much more haggard than me.

    • iconoclast59 says:

      Hell, I’m almost 20 years older than Kayti, and even *I* don’t look as “rode hard and put away wet”!

  23. JadedBrit says:

    The woman is only 2 years older than I am??? What did she do, take a meat tenderiser to her cheeks? I’m sorry, bitchy comment, I know: I just wonder what kind of life you’d have to lead to end up so… So RADDLED. Must be all the lies, Kid Rock and the lies, the endless money-and-famous-chap-chasing and the lies. She needs help. Or morality and ethics lessons. Perhaps she should watch a few seasons of the Good Place?

  24. Marianne says:

    I dont know WHY you would want to go public that you had an affair with a married man. If shes looking to get some hush money…well….you kind of have to stay hushed. And this certainly doesnt help her repuatation any. Maybe it will give her that 5 min of fame but its not like this is gonna long-term help her career.

  25. abbi says:

    This is the most interesting thing yet about Dax and Kristen. They bore me to tears.

  26. Megan says:

    Is anyone else shocked this woman is supposedly 41 years old?

    • Riley says:

      She looks closer to 50! Her story is crap! No one posts photo’s a decade old on facebook “as a joke” and then claim it’s someone cheating. What must her husband think of what an attention whore she is? Not a big Dax fan, but he must be embarrassed to have elver slept with this loser regardless of when it was.

  27. Mash says:

    let me tell you something…. what people have done the 1st year or months into a new relationship after being together for over 8 years or so…. this chick TRIED IT…

    i would have been like “Yea Aight…. we got a life, family, fun, and love. Aint nobody about to argue with you and calculate these dates. We good over here. …piss off”
