ORLANDO, Fla. -

The tabloid headline will be screaming at supermarket checkout lines all week: "Casey Anthony SURVIVES ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT!"

But asked by Local 6 to comment on whether his client had to be relocated to a "new safe house," as the Enquirer reported, attorney Jose Baez responded, "None of it is true."

Anthony is serving one year of probation on check fraud charges at an undisclosed location in Florida. Her location is being concealed by the state because of fears for her safety.

Anthony, 25, is widely reviled after a jury acquitted her in July of murder and other charges stemming from the death of her daughter, Caylee, in 2008.
