New York's Village Voice ran an interview with the musician earlier this month in which he allegedly suggested the Rehab hitmaker was "upset, competitive, (and) restless" after the Rolling in the Deep singer's rise to global fame.
The story was widely reported but Ronson has since posted a statement on Facebook denying he made the comments.
He writes: "I rarely ever respond to misquotes and wrong information. Plus, it only serves to bring attention to the matter. However in this case, I will not f****** tolerate it... I read the interview for the first time just now, and there are so many wrong quotes in there. I can tell the dude was writing whatever he wanted because he uses words and language that I never EVER f****** use in my daily life.
"At one point, he (the interviewer) was grilling me about Amy to the point that I said that Amy was itching to get back in the studio, and the recent success of others that she had blazed a trail for had put the fire in her belly. But that is absolutely it and all these other words are a complete affront to me, her, Adele and anyone who reads this s****."
Ronson is so angry over the incident he has vowed never to answer future questions about Winehouse, adding: "Sorry to get so f****** angry over something that may seem trivial but some wrongs must be righted. And I have learned my lesson and will no longer answer questions about our girl."
