Rashard Lewis called into a Houston radio station to deny rumors that he was involved in an affair with Savanah Brinson, fiance of LeBron James.

"I have no idea," Lewis said when asked why the rumors were circulating. "That's what I'm trying to figure out. ... Now I come home and I hear the same rumors. ... Those rumors are 100 percent false. They're not true. I don't know how they came up."

Lewis said he reached out to James' stepfather and assured him the rumors were "completely false."

"He said on their side of the camp, they know it's not true," Lewis told host Qui West. "They don't believe it. He told me not to worry about it at all."
