Other "allies" said that there was now a "stench of death" emanating from Downing Street.
In his message, a copy of which was passed to the Guido Fawkes website, Johnson said he did not support such briefings. Asked by the paper if Mr Johnson could be moved from the Foreign Secretary role, she said she was prepared to shake up her cabinet, and added "I didn't come into politics for an easy life".
'I do not know who these people are.
In a WhatsApp message to Conservative MPs, he suggested they were "some sinister band of imposters", according to Sky News.
'I heartily disagree with the sense, tone and spirit of what they are quoted as saying. "Whoever they are they do not speak for me".
Mrs May has repeatedly faced questions about whether Mr Johnson - a potential leadership rival - is "unsackable" due to her weakened position after the gamble of a general election backfired, depriving her of a Commons majority.

Still, the Sunday Times, citing Tories it didn't identify, said half May's Cabinet want her to stand down in the next two years. "Are we really going to be stampeded myopically over the edge of the gorge, with an election that no one wants?" he said in the Sunday Telegraph. While professing loyalty, his interventions have been seen as undermining May and causing unnecessary unrest ahead of the party's conference last week that culminated in a disastrous speech by the prime minister, marred by a coughing fit and letters falling off the slogan on the set behind her. Johnson made a plea for loyalty with a typical rhetorical flourish on Sunday.
May is expected to warn that Britain has made sufficient concessions in the Brexit negotiations for now.
"As we look forward to the next stage, the ball is in their court, but I'm optimistic that it will receive a positive response". May told reporters in her constituency in Maidenhead, west of London.
She admitted the speech was an "uncomfortable" time but never considered abandoning the address as "I am not someone who gives up".
