New York, Nov 29: Salman Rushdie has quashed rumours suggesting that he is dating Social Life magazine editor-in-chief Devorah Rose.
He has claimed that Rose is blowing things out of proportion.
“She is making too much of a casual acquaintance,” the New York Post quoted him as saying.
After a meal at Indochine, Rose had tweeted, “Great times w @SalmanRushdie. Come back to the states soon so that we can have a do-over.”
Reacting to her tweet, Rushdie asserted that he was quite embarrassed about the whole situation.
“I’d just like to express my personal embarrassment about your story today linking me with Ms. Devorah Rose.”
“There is not, and will not be anything between Ms. Rose and myself. I am mortified that her Twitter feed suggests otherwise,” he added. (ANI)
