Brad Pitt and sexy model APRIL FLORIO have both denied an American magazine's claim they are enjoying a secret romance.

The OCEAN'S TWELVE hunk, who split from wife Jennifer Aniston last month (JAN05), claims the girl photographed with him on Los Angeles' Venice Beech by IN TOUCH magazine is his assistant - and he is not the man pictured with Florio in Greece, reports the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS.

Florio has meanwhile told rival publication US WEEKLY, "I've never even met him."

In Touch's editors argue Florio's agent MIKE ESTERMAN confirmed in an email, "She was with him and wanted it to be on the low down," but he now states he was referring to another man, not Pitt. He says his client wanted to keep things under wraps because, "She's married."
