    Jessica Simpson: I'm Not Tiger Bait!

    UPDATE: Simpson just tweeted off: "Can't believe that I'm on the cover of star magazine with Tiger Woods, what a JOKE! 'The Shocking Inside Story' is (insert drumroll) A LIE!"

    Star isn't backing down from their claims, however. The magazine has issued the following statement: "Star stands by the facts as reported in its story."

    She's blond, busty and has a penchant for talking to the media. Yep, Jessica Simpson certainly meets all the criteria for initiation into Tiger Woods' rapidly expanding harem.

    But don't let that—or Star's rather shameless attempt to link the singer to the Biggest Scandal of the Year—fool you: Papa Joe didn't raise a hussy.

    Simpson's camp is shooting down the tabloid's latest cover claims, alleging that a much-photographed encounter between the stars at the AT&T National Pro-Am golf tournament last July (at which time Simpson was still coupled with Tony Romo, who was both literally and figuratively cropped out of the Star story) resulted in the stars swapping phone numbers and email addresses...and maybe more.

    "Tiger liked what he saw and let her know it," a dubious source is quoted as saying in the magazine.

    Simpson's rep, however, calls the whole scenario "ridiculous."

    "Literally the only thing that's true in the story is the fact that they met," the publicist tells E! News. "It was a quick meeting, and they posed for a photo together—that was it. Jessica's lawyer is sending them a letter this afternoon."

    And it won't be wishing them a merry Christmas.
