TARA REID has spoken for the first time about the cause of her split with CARSON DALY - and claimed it was largely to do with false tabloid stories. The actress, who broke up with her fiance in April (01), has previously only said a "breakdown of trust" was to blame.
But she now admits that reports of her romancing television star ASHTON KUTCHER were partially to blame. She says, "If Carson was an actor, he'd understand why I have to be away on sets and that if I have to kiss another guy in a movie, I do it. He'd read in the tabloids that I was with Ashton Kutcher, but that was a bunch of bull. Then I started reading he was with a stripper and that wasn't true. You start tripping off each other for no reason. It makes you crazy. "
Reid admits she and Carson are not friends at the moment. She says, "I've been through a lot and I'm still a little hurt and a little confused. We're not at the friends place yet. " (SVD/PE/NFA)
