John Stamos’ ex Teri Copley breaks silence on claim he found her ‘in bed’ with TV star

Teri Copley is setting the record straight.

Less than two weeks after John Stamos claimed he found her naked in bed with Tony Danza during their 1980s relationship in his memoir, If You Would Have Told Me, she recounted a very different version of the story via a 19-minute YouTube video shared on Friday.

Instead of catching them in bed, Copley claimed Stamos knocked on her door while Danza’s car was fully visible in her driveway.

When she opened the door “fully dressed,” she recalled her ex becoming upset, reports Page Six.

“[He] just shook his head and looked at me like, ‘How could you?’” she claimed.

“Well, I looked at him and didn’t say anything either. I just looked at him like, ‘What do you care?’”

“He certainly didn’t come in my house and find me in bed naked with a sheet over,” Copley added.

“I mean none of that happened.”

Page Six has reached out to a rep for Stamos but did not immediately hear back.

Giving background on the timeline of the entire situation, the actress and model, 62, said she dated Danza, 72, for “about a year and a half.”

She then met the Full House star and they instantly “hit it off.” Eight months into their relationship, Stamos told her he loved her.

“I’m a girl. I remember that very clearly because I was waiting and waiting for him to tell me that he loved me because I didn’t know if he did,” Copley claimed.

A few months later, a phone call from Stamos’ mother, Loretta Phillips, completely changed her view on their relationship.

“She called and she said, ‘Teri, I know that you love John, but don’t plan on marrying him because he has no intention of marrying you,’” she recalled. “I remember like it was yesterday.”

Copley said she assumed Stamos told his mother that and thought she called to try and “protect” her.

So, she went to the General Hospital star’s home and broke up with him.

“It was my fault. I was young. I didn’t know how to communicate with him to tell him, you know, your mother told me you didn’t ever want to marry me,” she humbly recalled.

“We never discussed marriage and I wasn’t, you know, secure enough [or] strong enough to say that to him. So I just left it like that. I left him like that.”

That’s when Danza came into the picture.

“Three or four days” later, Copley said she saw the Who’s the Boss? alum on the cover of a magazine.

“I opened it and I read it and in there he said that Teri Copley was the only girl that he’d ever loved,” she remembered.

The Redeemed actress said she then called Danza, who came over — but not to a pool house as Stamos claimed in his memoir.

Not long after, she said Stamos showed up at her door to call her out.

Copley went on to claim in her video that after Stamos and Rebecca Romijn divorced in 2005, she finally admitted why she broke up with him.

“I wanted to because I’d grown up a little bit and I wanted to tell him what happened,” she stated.

“And he looked at me and he said, ‘I didn’t know that, Teri.’”

“He said, ‘I would have married you. I was madly in love with you.’”

Following the conversation, Copley said she and Stamos were able to form a friendship.

The dad of one also spoke about his relationship with Romijn, whom he was married to from 1998 to 2005, in If You Would Have Told Me.

In the memoir, he accused the X-Men actress of treating him like he wasn’t good enough for her and also of having an affair.

“Betrayal starts as a sinking feeling in your stomach, grows into a suspicion that clouds your every thought, and by the time you find out the truth, it’s uniquely horrible at first but also expected, like you’ve been waiting for something bad to happen,” he penned.

“There’s nothing more to say.”

Following the book’s release, a source told Page Six that Romijn “doesn’t want to give John any more oxygen or attention and help him sell more books” by responding to his claims.
