Instant Mom star Tia Mowry is doing some damage control over what she claims are overblown reports that she’s in a feud with Oscar-winning actor Charlize Theron. In an interview with In Touch recently, Mowry talked of an encounter at a SoulCycle class where Theron snubbed her. Mowry is now backing up, saying the incident was “blown out of proportion.”
The original report had Mowry saying that she tried to introduce herself to Theron in the spinning class, but that Theron had rolled her eyes and said, “Oh my God.” Mowry claimed that she had approached the veteran actor politely, without being “over-the-top,” and that Theron was being “mean”.
This presented a feeding frenzy for media, with reports coming out later that Theron had lashed back at Mowry. A source told Dish Nation that Theron had demanded that Mowry be banned from SoulCycle because she was so angry that Mowry had spoken to the tabloids about her. SoulCycle reportedly refused, which made the 39-year-old star of Snow White And The Huntsman even more angry. She was apparently concerned about her privacy during the 45-minute spinning classes, and a source claims that she said, “This nobody who was famous for a minute 20 years ago can complain to the tabloids about me but I can’t expect you to protect me from hangers-on in your studio?”

However, sources are now coming out saying that the story is completely “fabricated and untrue.” Mowry herself is saying that she doesn’t know Theron personally, and admires her enough to even have a crush on her. “I absolutely love her, she’s my ‘woman crush Wednesday,’ you can even see it on my Instagram!” she said. “I’m obsessed with her, I love her, it was definitely blown out of proportion. So that’s all I’m going to say about that.”
