Despite rumors that Britney Spears
is going to be a mom again, her pal Sam Lufti tells PEOPLE the singer is not
Following a cover story published by In Touch
magazine, which claims the singer is four weeks pregnant with producer J.R. Rotem's baby, Lufti said in a text message to PEOPLE, "It's just BS. Big Lie."
As for the pop star's reaction to the rumors: "She laughed at it," according to Lufti, who said the singer won't likely release a statement about it. "If she were to give a statement about every lie, she'd be giving statements forever."
Lufti, who also said that he doubts Rotem said anything about the rumors, also sent a text message to Ryan Seacrest
about the story.
Seacrest read the message on the air Wednesday, quoting Lufti as saying, "It's BS. Don't know who made it up. J.R. doesn't even know what's up. It's fake. Completely fake. We just wrapped her video. Going home to sleep."
