Liza Minnelli took a page from Mariah Carey’s legendary shadow playbook on Thursday, pulling a classic “I don’t know her” maneuver on Renée Zellweger.

After Radar Online reported that Minnelli was cozy with Zellweger — who is playing Minnelli’s famous mother, Judy Garland, in an upcoming biopic — Minnelli posted on Facebook: “I have never met or spoken Renée Zellweger.”

She added, “I don’t know how these stories get started, but I do not approve nor sanction, the forthcoming film about Judy Garland other way. All reports to the contrary are 100% fiction.”

Radar took the original article from their website.

LD Entertainment and Attractions will release the Rupert Goold-directed film, which also stars Finn Wittrock.

In the beginning of the years 2000, when Carey was asked about the up-and-coming diva Jennifer Lopez, she implausibly — and legendarily replied: “I don’t know of her.”
