(LOS ANGELES) -- Sources close to Matthew Fox tell TMZ the actor has never beaten a woman in his life. The denial comes just days after Fox's former Lost co-star, Dominic Monaghan, made a blunt allegation during a Twitter chat with a fan.
When the fan asked Monaghan to help get Fox to join Twitter, Monaghan replied, “He beats women. No thanks.”
The allegations were repeated in a further reply. When the fan suggested Fox should sue his former Lost co-star, Monaghan wrote, "It's very difficult to sue someone for speaking the truth."
In August 2011, an allegedly drunk Fox was accused of repeatedly punching a female shuttle bus driver in an Ohio scuffle that led the victim to sue him for injuries sustained.
