Ashley Greene‘s condo fire lawsuit has had some new twists, and it is looking like it’s becoming a he-said-she-said scenario.
TMZ initially reported that a glass crack pipe was found in the Twilight star’s West Hollywood condo after a March 2013 fire. However, a source close to the actress told Us Weekly that the report is false.
TMZ allegedly obtained a sworn deposition of building manager Adrian Mayorga, who is suing Greene after claiming he “suffered permanent respiratory damage” as a result of the fire.
Several other tenants in the building also are allegedly suing the actress.
At the time of the fire in March 2013, Greene, 27, her brother, and her then-boyfriend Ryan Phillippe were all supposedly sleeping inside the condo. The blaze also claimed the life of the actress’ dog.

A source close to Greene debunked the manager’s statement, telling Us, “There was no crack pipe found in Ashley’s apartment. It’s all hearsay from unnamed sources — Mayorga’s claiming he heard from a friend of an unidentified worker who may have entered the apartment. Additionally, Phillippe went on the record saying he wasn’t there.”
Mayorga allegedly said in the deposition that Greene and her guests looked “disoriented … they looked like they were drunk or under the influence of something.” He also states that a glass crack pipe was found in Greene’s apartment by a man clearing up the wreckage.
“Of course Ashley was disoriented!” said the source. “She was awoken at 9 a.m. to her house being on fire. Who wouldn’t be?”

Mayorga said in the deposition that, “The only people I saw getting treated was Ashley Greene, her brother Joe Green, and the current boyfriend, Ryan Phillippe.”
Phillippe has a sworn declaration saying that he had never been in Greene’s apartment, let alone the night of the fire.
