New York: Scarlett Johansson has revealed that she and her mom Melanie Sloan “are as close as they have ever been” even after the actress dumped her mother as manager two years ago.

The 26-year-old actress has denied reports that she and her mom are at odds over money and Sloan’s current partner, Gilles Arondeau.

According to reports, Sloan was suing for the return of a 130,000-dollar deposit she put down on a 1.4 million-dollar apartment on West 43rd Street, after she could not land a mortgage.

“Scarlett and Melanie are as close as they have ever been,” the New York Post quoted a representative for Johansson as telling Page Six.

“They are incredibly proud of the solid and productive professional partnership they had through the many years they worked together.

“Their personal relationship is solid and loving,” the rep added.
