Miles Teller was reportedly punched in the face while on vacation in Hawaii, but his wife said the report was untrue in a statement posted to social media Friday.

"The story reported about Miles being punched in the face by @TMZ over 'money' is completely false," Teller's wife Keleigh Sperry Teller wrote on her Instagram story.

"Miles was jumped by 2 men we have never met after they trapped him in a bathroom," she continued. "It seems these same men have done this to many people and we appreciate your support Maui. This is now a criminal investigation."

Sperry Teller's statement was also reshared by actress Shailene Woodley, who was vacationing with the Tellers in Maui along with her fiancé Aaron Rodgers.

TMZ first reported on Friday that Teller had been punched in the face while he and Sperry Teller were eating dinner at a Maui restaurant.

Teller and an unknown man reportedly got into an argument outside the bathroom at the restaurant, with the altercation ending when the man punched Teller.

According to TMZ's report, the man who assaulted Teller was a wedding planner angry over $60,000 the actor allegedly owed him for his 2019 Maui wedding to Sperry Teller - a claim Sperry Teller appeared to dispute in her Instagram statement.

Representatives for Teller didn't immediately respond to Insider's requests for comment.

The Maui Police Department said in a statement obtained by People that "police responded to a report of an assault that occurred at a West Maui restaurant involving a male victim and one responsible party. The incident is currently under investigation; no further information is available at this time."
