Was Miles Teller Saved From Jaws by a Pregnant Woman?

"Whiplash" star Miles Teller was spotted helping a pregnant woman out of rough water at Miami Beach on Sunday – a great tabloid story at first, but it turns out the woman might have been saving the actor.

It started with People magazine proclaiming "Miles Teller to the rescue" with an article describing how he helped pull the unidentified pregnant woman and her child out of a riptide.

"A shirtless Teller was photographed Sunday taking the distressed mother by her hand and leading her and a young child … out of the rip tide," wrote People. "His hero moment occurred while the 'Whiplash' star was spending an afternoon cozied up on the beach with his girlfriend, Keleigh Sperry. Wearing a bright orange bikini, the 22-year-old model watched the incident from the sand with her hand over her heart until the duo safely returned to shore."

Celebrity gossip site TMZ initially followed that storyline, pointing to Teller's character Reed Richards in the upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot, adding on Monday morning: "Once on shore, the two made double sure the woman was alright and then parted ways. Looks like playing Reed Richards definitely rubbed off on him."

However, by Monday afternoon TMZ was telling a different story, saying it was the pregnant woman who came to the rescue by alerting Teller about a shark in the water.

"Miles Teller did not rescue a pregnant woman caught in a Miami riptide," TMZ wrote. "It was the pregnant woman who gave Miles a heads up ... jaws was lurking in the water. Model Keleigh Sperry, who was spending a fun-filled day in the sun with the (Teller), says the pregnant woman came up to them 'freaking out' that a shark was in the water."

The Daily Mail reported that before the shark warning, Teller and Sperry seemed to enjoying a leisurely day along Miami Beach.

"Miles and his squeeze were inseparable as they strolled hand-in-hand along the beach and embraced while taking a dip in the ocean together," said the paper. "The 'Whiplash' star showed off his impressive physique in nothing but a pair of black Quicksilver board shorts on the outing after ditching a psychedelic Jimi Hendrix shirt upon his arrival."
