The author behind erotic novel “Fifty Shades of Grey” has dismissed rumors she has fallen out with director Sam Taylor-Johnson over the upcoming movie version of her popular book.

Reports this week suggested British writer E.L. James had been arguing with Taylor-Johnson over changes made to the story as she shoots the new movie adaptation with Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson.

The feud rumors surfaced just weeks after the movie’s release date was pushed back from this summer to next year, prompting speculation the project is in trouble.

The pair is seen grinning and raising their fists to the camera in the snap, which was posted on James’ Instagram.com page along with the caption, “The gloves are off…”
