R&B diva Mariah Carey has hit back at reports that state she is feuding with Jennifer Lopez. The story, which was first reported by Inside Hollywood Tuesday, includes a quote – allegedly from Carey – saying that she would rather appear on stage with a pig than ever sharing a stage with Lopez. The story, Carey tells PEOPLE. is “a complete untruth.” Carey insists that the quote did not, and would not, come from her. “This is just some Internet gossip and it’s pathetic that people actually entertain the thought that this could be real,” Carey adds. “This is another sad example of two strong women being pit against each other.” Carey has a new album due out in the spring, shortly after Lopez is due to give birth.
