(Newser) – Madonna's mouthpiece is full of it, the singer says. Liz Rosenberg told the AP this week that the Material Girl would give ex-hubby Guy Ritchie up to $92 million in “one of the largest payouts ever in a divorce settlement.” The couple denies the figure, the New York Post reports, and Rosenberg isn't talking.

“We have tried to maintain a dignified silence regarding the details of our divorce for the last few months,” the couple said, but “a misleading and inaccurate statement was wrongly issued to AP this week.”
