"He was on the boat next to us in Cannes and I talked to him about my line," said Love. "He was very interested but I kept telling him he couldn't have it.

Philip Green denies this ever happened, and said, through a spokesperson, "Courtney and Philip shared a brief conversation over one boat rail to another while in Cannes — they have had no contact since, telephonic or otherwise."

Calling him a "professional crossdresser" who commits the outrage of causing male onlookers to momentarily take him for a woman, FHM says Pejic "most likely fooled his modeling agency as well."
