Katy Perry has responded to reports that The Beach Boys' record label are set to take legal action over her song 'California Gurls'.

Following news that the Rondor Music representatives had been in touch with her label Capitol Records about the song, the singer took to Twitter to clarify the situation.

"Just to be clear... no one is suing anyone," she wrote on her page, Twitter.com/katyperry. "The press just loves to once again fabricate and exaggerate stories to get hits or sell papers."

A spokesperson for Rondor told Bilboard: "There is no lawsuit against the writers or publishers of 'California Gurls'. We have established diminutive claim. It is up to the six writers and various publishers of 'California Gurls' to decide whether they honour the claim or not."

Beach Boys members Brian Wilson and Mike Love have distanced themselves from the situation, with Wilson saying he liked Perry's song.
