Moby ‘confused’ as Natalie Portman denies they went on dates

Date row: The pair pictured in 1999 PICTURE: INSTAGRAM

MUSICIAN Moby says he is ‘confused’ to read that actress Natalie Portman has denied she once dated him — after she labelled him a ‘creepy older man’.

In new book, Then It Fell Apart, the 53-year-old claims he met the Oscar-winner when she was 20 and that they had a brief relationship.

But Portman, now 37, told Harper’s Bazaar she was 18 when they met, adding: ‘My recollection is a much older man being creepy with me when I had graduated high school.’

In response, Moby last night posted an old picture of the pair on Instagram, and wrote: ‘After briefly dating in 1999 we remained friends for years. I like Natalie, and respect her intelligence and activism, but can’t figure out why she would actively misrepresent the truth.’

He added: ‘I respect Natalie’s possible regret in dating me but it doesn’t alter the actual facts of our brief romantic history.’
