Agnetha Faltskog and Frida Lyngstad of ABBA have heard it all when it comes to notorious stories of their in-house cat fighting during their 70's heyday.

Reunited together recently, they accepted an award, and both rejected the long-standing rumors that they are bitter enemies.

During a very rare interview, Lyngstad said: "A lot has been written about how Agnetha and I fought and quarreled with each other. There is absolutely no truth in that. Of course we competed, but to good effect."

Lyngstad and Faltskog formed ABBA together with male members Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus.

The band has sold more than 370 million records and is famous for hits like "Waterloo," ''Dancing Queen" and "Money, Money, Money." After ABBA split in 1982, rumors of fights between Lyngstad and Faltskog swirled in articles and books about the band.

"No, we didn't fight. But we have to live (through) a whole lot of such misinterpretations," Faltskog said.

AbbaawardThe two women came together last week to accept Aftonbladet's lifetime achievement award. The four former ABBA members are rarely seen together in public, but were reunited in 2008 for the Swedish premiere of "Mamma Mia!" a film based on their hits.
