Photo Courtesy - Jive Records(LOS ANGELES) -- Britney Spears' manager is denying a report in Star magazine that she's in an abusive relationship with boyfriend Jason Trawick.  He's also threatening legal action over the report.

Spears' former husband, Jason Alexander, who was married to her for 55 hours in 2004, is claiming in Star magazine that in a phone conversation in October, Spears told him Trawick "beat on" her, and hit her hard enough to blacken her eye. posted poor quality audio of the alleged phone conversation, in which Alexander asks if Trawick proposed, and a female voice alleged to be Spears' replies, "Before or after he beat on me?"

However, Spears' manager Larry Rudolph tells Access Hollywood and Us Weekly magazine the voice on the tape is "100 percent not her," meaning Spears.  He further tells Access Hollywood, "Lawyers are amassing.  We are 100 percent talking stern and immediate legal action."

Similarly, another one of Spears' managers, Adam Leber, tweeted Wednesday, "RadarOnline clearly has no idea what Britney Spears sounds like.  These recordings are a joke."

An "official statement" posted on the singer's website says Trawick "has never laid a hand on Britney" and called the audio "so obviously fake as to be laughable."  The statement also says Spears hasn't spoken with Alexander in years.  The website confirms that she will pursue legal action against "all of the appropriate parties."
