UPDATE: Alison Mosshart Addresses "Grotesque" Rumor

The Kills' frontwoman Alison Mosshart has issued a statement regarding the British tabloid rumors that she and Jack White recently engaged in a fist fight in New York.

According to Mosshart [via NME], there was no fight between the Dead Weather compadres, and called the rumors particularly grotesque.

"I don't usually bother responding to ridiculous fabricated tabloid rumors, but this one is particularly grotesque," Mosshart was quoted as saying. "The stories circulating from a UK tabloid of a 'fist fight', or Jack punching me, or the two of us 'being at each others throats' are untrue.

"I'm just wrapping up a tour with The Kills and then I'll be back with The Dead Weather for the release of the album and a tour. It's a really great group of people to work with and I can't wait for everyone to hear the album."

Still no word on whether White's wife Karen Elson is the identity behind Mildred and the Mice, but at least this squashes one nasty rumor.
