Despite repeated denials from Britney Spears‘ camp, rumors have continued to persist that the pop star is expecting baby #3, this time with music producer J.R. Rotem. But now J.R. has gone on the offensive in an attempt to put the unrelenting fictitious reports to bed.

“There is no truth to it,” he tells TV’s Extra. “Me and her remain friends as we always have been. [We] have an amazing musical connection and I wish her the best.”

J.R. initially shot down the news when it was first reported two weeks ago — and he wasn’t the only one. A close friend of the Britster exclusively confirmed to OK! that "the story is a complete lie."
