Christina Aguilera's spokesperson has slammed the "fat girl" comments which feature in the singer's cover interview with Billboard magazine.
The Voice judge was reported to have referred to herself as a "fat girl" in the interview, while claiming that she was fed up of being marketed as a "skinny white girl" earlier on in her career.
Reports have suggested that Christina told the magazine: "I am Ecuadorian but people felt so safe passing me off as a skinny, blue-eyed white girl.
"[In 2002] I had gained about 15 pounds during promotion and during my Stripped tour. They called this serious emergency meeting about how there was a lot of backlash about my weight."
She is also reported to have added: "I told them during this Lotus recording, 'You are working with a fat girl. Know it now and get over it. They need a reminder sometimes that I don't belong to them'. It's my body... My body is just not on the table that way anymore."
But Christina's rep has since reportedly claimed that "the quotes are fake".
Talking to the MailOnline, they said: "These quotes are wrong – she never said them."
Billboard magazine have also been reported to have denied that the quotes were from Christina's cover interview for the September 29 issue.
A number of media outlets including USA Today and E! have reported that the quotes came from a story on US Weekly, who have now reportedly removed the story claiming there there had been an "error about the source of the quotes".
