Julia gave this statement to TMZ:  "I have absolutely nothing to do with the split between Michael and Jennifer."

Julia goes on:  "We are good friends and enjoyed working together.  This is a personal matter between them, and we should respect their privacy."

And, Julia says, "Although I too prefer to keep my private life private, I felt compelled to dispel the rumors I was somehow the cause for this matter."
