We’ve got to give Sebastian Bach a standing ovation for this one. During a new interview, the former Skid Row singer claimed that back in 1989, actress Christina Applegate ditched Brad Pitt at the MTV Movie Awards to go spend some time with Bach.

Back in 1989, Married… With Children was one of the biggest shows on TV and Christina Applegate was arguably the most lusted after woman in entertainment… and this is the year Baywatch premiered! Newly a superstar, Applegate went to the 1989 MTV Movie Awards with Brad Pitt as her date. Many ladies surely found themselves jealous of Christina, but the actress did the unthinkable and left Pitt to hang out with another guy? Who the hell could this mystery casanova possibly be? Sebastian Bach claims he’s the dude.

While promoting his new memoir, 18 and Life on Skid Row, Bach spoke about his night with Applegate while on the Elliot in the Morning radio show. Bach called his relationship with Applegate “a brief fling” and shared the duo had gone out a couple of times.

"She was interviewed recently on, like, Entertainment Tonight, or something, and they said, 'What was the dumbest thing you ever did?' And she goes, 'One night I ditched Brad Pitt for this other dude.' And that dude would be me," laughed Bach. "So there was a time on this earth when Sebastian Bach was, like, a hotter lay than Brad Pitt. Of course that's going in the book. [Laughs] I've gotta tell somebody that, Jesus! [Laughs]"

Christina Applegate has not confirmed who her choice over Brad Pitt was, though she admitted on Watch What Happens Live that it was a man in the public eye.
