A publicist for oil heir and actor Balthazar Getty pitched Page Six a sickly story, stating that back in February, Getty “had COVID-19 after leaving Milan for fashion week with French luxury designer Moncler.”
The e-mail also included a teaser promoting his collaboration with the brand (as if COVID is the latest trendy accessory).
People mag, which found the infection newsworthy, reports that Getty is OK and did not infect anyone else. “He believes he acquired the virus upon his return to Los Angeles,” said the report.
