US Weekly has failed to fact-check their stories once again.

The tabloid's report claiming Britney Spears's song "Mmm Papi," was inspired and written about her paparazzo ex-boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib, is totally false!

Nicole Morier, who co-wrote "Mmm Papi" with Britney, tells

"I never said that to US Weekly! The song is definitely not about Adnan and in the whole time I worked with her Britney last spring and summer I never once saw that guy. We strictly wrote the song for fun. The mmm papi part came out of Mmm Papa Luv U and I came up with it because the track was a fun up-beat track and we wanted to do something crazy like 'mmmpapamowow.'"

Nicole continues, "The mmm papi part came later as a rhythmic idea and it was also more inspired by "Hey Mami" from the group Fannypack. It's our ode to all the Latino hotties in the world."

Morier goes on to say, "Please be kind to Britney and post this correction. She was oh-so-sweet and professional to work with and I believe she's really gotten her life together."
