John Stamos admits having a “flirty” relationship with then-17-year-old Allison Coss, but denies a romantic fling—and explains that he was “very heartbroken” when they met in 2004. While testifying yesterday in Coss’s extortion trial, Stamos said he was in Florida to cheer up after separating from Rebecca Romijn, and that Coss told him she was on spring break from college when they met at an 18-and-over dance club, the AP reports.

He admits she came to his hotel room, but says they were “just hanging out, socializing.” They kept in touch through email, but Stamos insists he “considered her a friend”…even though one 2007 message consists of him asking her to send him “wild pics.” When Coss and Scott Sippola began their extortion attempt, Stamos says he always knew there were no pictures of him with cocaine and strippers, but feared someone may have doctored photos.
