Rosie O'Donnell by Dimitrios Kambouris/WireImage.com
is taking issue with a new article in
that describes her as being abusive toward her children.
The article ran alongside a photo in which O'Donnell appears to be loudly scolding her 12-year-old son. The piece also suggests O'Donnell has been abusive toward her two other younger children by repeatedly yelling at the older child in front of them.
"This story is absolutely ludicrous and ridiculous," her publicist told the
New York Post
. "There's no truth to it whatsoever."
The representative did not say if the former TV talk show host would seek legal action against the newspaper. -
