June 72 denies printed reports that she and Meyer are having marital problems. "Russ has been in Barbados for six weeks making a movie. It's with a British cast, and he doesn't want any publicity, so people in this town just naturally assume he's moved out for good. Nothing could be further from the truth. He will be home in a few more weeks."
