Perez Hilton Wrong About James Franco Dating Model Agyness Deyn

Thanks to his sister site, Coco Perez, Perez Hilton now has twice the opportunity to get stories wrong.
(In all fairness, Perez was among several lazy cutter-and-pasters, including Hollyscoop, who ran this story.)
Anyway, according to Perez, “The Brit supermodel has been getting cozy with the actor after meeting at a New York Cinema Society party in December. The two flirted throughout the night and eventually traded phone numbers.”
Quoting one of his non-traceable sources, Perez adds, “Agyness and James have met since and are very keen on each other. There is a real connection.”
A mutual friend of Franco and Gossip Cop first tipped us off to the inaccuracy, stating rather strongly that the “Spider-Man” star is NOT seeing Deyn.
And a rep for Franco further confirmed it by saying, “This is not true. He met her briefly at the ‘Howl’ screening.”
In fact, far from dating Deyn, Franco just said “hi” to her and not much else.
