(Newser) – A New Jersey woman is fiercely denying rumors that she was dancing in the dark with Bruce Springsteen, reports the Star-Ledger. The woman says the affair accusation—made in her husband's divorce filing—is groundless and the two just happen to be members of the same gym. She plans to request that the divorce proceedings be sealed to protect her kids from the "media circus."

"There is no affair. There never has been an affair," her lawyer said. "It's a real problem because they have two young children who did not know their parents were getting divorced until the news told them."
