Emma Watson leaving Brown University, but denies ‘bullying’
London: It’s official. Emma Watson will be transferring from the prestigious Brown University to another school this autumn, but her spokeswoman has denied reports of ‘bullying’.
The ‘Harry Potter’ star’s announcement comes just days after it was claimed the reason she put her studies on hold at the university was because she was taunted by her peers in class.
Watson’s representative Vanessa Davies denied reports that Watson had been picked on at the Ivy League institution by fellow students.
She said the actress had decided to pursue a course not offered at Brown, and had ``absolutely loved`` her time at the institution, reports the Daily Mail.
Watson is said to have been the subject of frequent jibes whenever she answered questions in lectures.
A source told the New York Daily News that fellow students would respond to Watson with quotes from Harry Potter, saying "the most popular choice was, ``Three points for Gryffindor!”
