LOS ANGELES -- Matt LeBlanc has been sued for defamation by a woman who claims the former "Friends" actor made sexually charged comments about her that were published in the National Enquirer.
Stephanie Stephens claims in a lawsuit that LeBlanc told an unspecified person last August that she was sexually aggressive, gave him a lap dance in a private room and engaged him in a "night of sexual debauchery ... at her place of employment."
A call to LeBlanc's publicist after business hours Friday was not immediately returned.
In the lawsuit, filed Tuesday in Los Angeles, Stephens said she was never sexually aggressive toward LeBlanc, never made sexual requests and never gave a lap dance.
The lawsuit also says that "all sexual contact between the defendant and the plaintiff took place in the privacy of (Stephens') residence."
It does not provide details on the woman's relationship to LeBlanc, nor does it specify damages being sought.
The National Enquirer is not named as a defendant.
