How about nah? Chrissy Teigen hit back at rumors that she and husband John Legend are feuding with fellow megamodel Kate Upton and her fiancé, MLB pitcher Justin Verlander, in a hilarious tweet on Wednesday, July 20.

The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model shared a screen grab of a short magazine blurb claiming that Legend, 37, was “at war” with Verlander, 33.

“If this isn’t the dumbest and most random s–t I have ever heard lmao @kateupton,” the 30-year-old model tweeted at Upton, 24. Verlander chimed in with a quip of his own shortly afterward.

“@chrissyteigen Whewww… Glad you cleared this up!” the MLB pitcher tweeted. “I was worried someone I haven’t met yet hated me.” Verlander included two crying laughing faces and tagged Upton and Legend in the tweet thread.

Teigen replied to the athlete’s comment with another thought: “also, john enjoys my locker room humor.”

And just to make sure there was no mistaking her denial of the story, Teigen tweeted again shortly afterward. “We have never even all actually hung out together,” she wrote. “It is just so, so random and such a useless lie. Usually a story is at least 1% true.”

Teigen, who frequently (and delightfully) tweets unfiltered thoughts to her account, made headlines earlier this month after jumping to Jennifer Aniston’s defense after Piers Morgan criticized the Friends actress in a Daily Mail column.

“@piersmorgan saw your piece on Jennifer Aniston,” she tweeted at Morgan, 51. “Why do you ALWAYS take the road of being the piece of s–t a–hole?”
