Teller has been vacationing in Maui in recent days with wife Keleigh and their friends Shailene Woodley, 29, and her fiancé Aaron Rodgers, 37.
While TMZ claimed the assault stemmed from an argument over unpaid bills from his wedding, Keleigh took to her social media account to say otherwise.

‘The story reported about Miles being punched in the face by @TMZ over ‘money’ is completely false,’ she wrote on Friday. ‘Miles was jumped by 2 men we have never met after they trapped him in a bathroom.’
‘It seems these same men have done this to many people and we appreciate your support Maui. This is now a criminal investigation,’ she added, signing off the message with a peace sign.
According to law enforcement members, Miles had been having dinner at the Monkeypod Kitchen in Maui on Wednesday with his model wife.
Others at the restaurant say that the actor had visited to bathroom when he got into an argument with another man who proceeded to punch him in the face.

Other restaurant patrons said the man claimed to be a wedding planner involved in the actor’s wedding to Sperry.
The couple tied the knot on September 1, 2019, in a tropical ceremony held on Maui.

Having a laugh: On Thursday, Teller poked fun at Rodgers by joking that he signed with the Packers. Rodgers has been missing from training amid rumors that he’s leaving the team
The two were reunited on screen in the three films in the Divergent series from 2014 to 2016.
On Thursday, Teller poked fun at Woodley’s football star fiancé, who’s the quarterback for the Green Bay Packers.
He posed with Sperry at a table while sipping on foaming cocktails and captioned the snap, ‘Cheers to signing with the Packers,’ despite Rodgers having done no such thing.
The quarterback has been enjoying his time in Hawaii even as the Packers begin optional offseason practices, leading to speculation that he might be traded to another team or that he could be looking to new ventures after guest hosting an well-regarded series of Jeopardy shows in the wake of Alex Trebek’s death.
