Davidson was reportedly not home at the time, but a relative was.Police said Mootreddy is the woman who sent out a press release Tuesday from a company called Bodega Cats, claiming she and Davidson started the company and were married, TMZ reported.Further, Mootreddy claimed to be a childhood friend of the actor.
But Davidson’s representatives said he doesn’t have a production company, isn’t married, and doesn’t know Mootreddy.
