Joe Giudice is responding to allegations made by an In Touch Weekly cover story purporting he cheated on wife Teresa during a recent business meeting. "No, I did not flirt with her. I did not make out with her, nothing happened between us," Joe tells Us Weekly about his acquaintance Jamie Jackson. "Everything In Touch is saying that happened between us are lies."
That story is corroborated by Jackson herself who says, "Nothing happened with me and Joe, I didn’t know him prior, nothing inappropriate happened at any time. We did not hook up, kiss, or anything more. I saw him at the two business meals and nothing more. It’s all made up bulls---."
Joe and Jamie both reiterate that they've only ever met twice, both times over group business dinners, and are baffled by In Touch's claims that they have incriminating photos of the two of them together. "I’m not sure [what] juicy photos they could get, we were just sitting at a table with others at a business dinner," Jackson says.
"This story doesn’t make any sense," Joe adds, saying he was incredulous when In Touch told him they had photos. "I said ‘Really? I doubt it, but if you do then God bless you, I don’t know where you got it from.' ...Let’s get real here, if I’m going to make out with a girl, is it going to be in the middle of Carmine's? No way."
Joe is currently taking care of his four daughters while wife Teresa has been serving her 15-month prison sentence. "Teresa knew that I was down there both times," he adds about the purported indiscretion. "So it's not like I went down there with her not knowing."
