David Bowie's official website has confirmed the rumors, that the rock legend would be collaborating with Lady Gaga, are a "hoax".

In the past Lady Gaga has spoken about her admiration for the iconic rock star, David Bowie, but last week a Gaga fansite reported that she would be working with him in the near future on her upcoming album.

Bowie's website statement read "When this tall story first surfaced a few days ago it was denied as a hoax in an update to the same article, and we thought that would be the end of it. I guess some folk see what they want to see though.

"The rumor that David Bowie has been working with Lady Gaga seems to have taken off…The hoax was started by some bright spark or other with the above forgery ... However, in a nutshell, the suggestion that David Bowie is producing and participating in the production of Lady Gaga's next album is untrue and a hoax."

Gaga has managed to keep a tight lid on news about her upcoming album. However in an interview with i-D magazine she said "The new album is my absolute greatest work I've ever done, and I'm so excited about it ... The message, the melodies, the direction, the meaning, what it will mean to my fans and what it will mean to me in my own life — it's utter liberation. I'm on the quest to create the anthem for my generation for the next decade, so that's what I've done."
