    Jessica Simpson has her claws out -- and is fuming over a report that she was Tiger bait.

    The songstress was seething over a Star magazine cover story that claimed she and embattled golfing great Tiger Woods flirted at a tournament over the summer just days before she and then-boyfriend Tony Romo split up.

    "Can't believe that I'm on the cover of star magazine with Tiger Woods, what a JOKE. 'The Shocking Inside Story' is (insert drumroll) A LIE!" Simpson tweeted on Wednesday.

    The gossip mag claimed the pair exchanged email addresses and phone numbers after a "sizzling meeting" at the AT&T National Pro-Am golf tourney in Bethesda, Md., last July. Woods' partner was Jess' then-beau.

    "She decided to have fun with Tiger whether it bothered Tony or not," a souce told Star.

    The gossip website TMZ.com reported Simpson sent a letter to the magazine complaining about the article.

    The news comes amid reports that the golfing great and his wife of five years, model Elin Nordegren, are on the fast-track to divorce after Woods confessed he hadn't been faithful to the mother of his two kids.
