LATEST: The wife of OCEAN'S ELEVEN director Steven Soderbergh has dismissed reports her three year marriage to the film-maker is over as "not true".

Jules Asner has rubbished a story on the website of her former E! Entertainment Television colleague Ted Casablanca, which said the pair are on the verge of splitting.

Asner insists she and Soderbergh are still "very happy" together.

Casablanca has since issued an apology and retracted the story.

Asner, a former Elite model, and Soderbergh started dating in 2001 and were married in May 2003.
