Actress' Ex Slams CNN - I'm No Sham Marriage Snitch

7/7/2010 1:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

CNN is under attack for a story it ran about a Mexican actress who was arrested for allegedly being in a sham marriage -- because one of the men in the story claims he was wrongly portrayed as a snitch.

High profile fashion photographer Markus Klinko just fired off a letter to CNN, demanding the network retract its story ... in which Klinko is labeled as a "jilted boyfriend" who exposed an alleged green card scheme involving Mexican actress Fernanda Romero.

Klinko tells TMZ he never ratted out Romero to the feds -- and insists that he only provided information AFTER he was contacted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

0707_kinko_small_launchAs for how Klinko believes CNN made the mistake -- dude tells us there was another ex-boyfriend in Fernanda's life ... and CNN may have simply mixed up the identities.

Yesterday, Klinko was out in New York with his "Double Exposure" co-star Indrani ... and their lawyer -- who told us they think they "are going to have to file a lawsuit against CNN."

Calls to CNN have not yet been returned.

Whoever ratted out Romero did the right thing. America doesn't want illegals or your green card scams. Go back to Mexico.

I don't understand the article. She was arrested for being in a sham marriage? What kind of a friggin country arrests people for sham marriages? Whole story only doesn't make sense, its about people we don't know. Boring.

Marcus seems sweet, but wow is he dumb. He ran their company into bankruptcy, they have no money, and now they are going to file a lawsuit over CNN suggesting he did something like expose fraud?
No wonder they went bankrupt, bad decisions...

Isn't he one of the "friends" of Lindsay that wants the photo shoots of her so they can sell the "last pictures" when she over-doses? Some.freaking.friends. Why, I bet they are the ones that gives their opinion of Lindsay falling apart (probably selling their opinion) while they are out partying along/supplying w/ her.
