Nothing personal, Alicia Leigh Willis (Courtney Matthews), but Tyler Chistopher (Nikolas Cassadine) is upset by rumors that the two of you are dating. In a defiant post on his official web site, Christopher lashed out at a magazine report that he was dating his soon-to-be former co-star.
"Alicia and I are not together," Christopher stated. "I repeat - not a couple. What you see on-screen is called good acting."
The post by Christopher was short-lived. A day after it was posted, the message was plucked from the site and presumably will not be returning.
Christopher's post was a response to an article that appeared as a cover story in the November 8th edition of Soap Opera Weekly, claiming that Christopher and Willis looked "mighty cozy" at a benefit the month before.
"Alicia and Tyler are close friends," Christopher's rep tells soapcentral.com. "Any speculation outside of that is a rumor and should be treated as such.
This would not be the first time that Christopher had had a romantic interest in a co-star. Christopher was married to former The Young and the Restless star Eva Longoria (ex-Isabella Braña; Gabrielle Solis, Desperate Housewives; ex-Brenda look-alike, GH) from 2002 to 2005. He was also engaged to his former General Hospital co-star, Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda Barrett). Earlier this year, Christopher and his most recent on-and-off-screen girlfriend, Natalia Livingston (Emily Quartermaine), called off their real world relationship.
