Salman Rushdie accused of 'unchivalrous behaviour' after Facebook exchange with socialite
The Satanic Verses verses author is believed to have met Devorah Rose, the editor of the glossy Social Life magazine, at a party in the Hamptons and later to have joined her at a number of intimate dinners in Manhattan.
But his insistence that there is no romantic relationship between the two of them, led to a scathing response from Miss Rose, who would only give her age as in her twenties.
She posted a message on Twitter reading "Never let someone paint you in a negative light" and linking to an apparent series of Facebook messages over the summer where Sir Salman asked if she would like to go for a drink "in real life", noting that the internet "has its limits".
