Producer Mark Ronson has lashed out at a journo from New York's Village Voice after they ran a story that claimed he believed his late friend and collaborator Amy Winehouse was "freaked out" by Adele.

The story, which has been reported around the world - including by the Herald Sun in Australia - quotes Ronson as saying, "I think that the Adele thing had Amy freaked out. She liked her, but Adele's success was making Amy feel upset, competitive, restless." You can read the full interview here.

This afternoon Ronson has taken to Facebook to deny that he said anything of the sort.

"i rarely ever respond to misquotes and wrong information. plus, it only serves to bring attention to the matter," he starts, "however in this case, i will not fucking tolerate it. some journalist quoted me as saying Amy was "freaked out" by Adele's success. jesus christ." (sic)

He continues, "i read the interview for the first time just now, and there are so many wrong quotes in there. i can tell the dude was writing whatever he wanted because he uses words and language that i never EVER fucking use in my daily life.

"at one point, he was grilling me about amy to the point that i said that amy was itching to get back in the studio, and the recent success of others that she had blazed a trail for had put the fire in her belly. but that is absolutely it and all these other words are a complete affront to me, her, adele and anyone who reads this shite."

He says that following the incident he will be refusing all future questions regarding Winehouse.

"sorry to get so fucking angry over something that may seem trivial but some wrongs must be righted. and i have learned my lesson and will no longer answer questions about our girl. good night and good luck."
