The US businesswoman was speaking after claims suggested the PM was offering her favours while allegedly being in a relationship with her.
Mr Johnson has faced claims that when he was London Mayor he recommended Ms Arcuri for a job leading a powerful tech quango.
Leaked emails seen by The Sunday Times showed Mr Johnson was listed as a reference in her application for the role at Tech City.
Ms Arcuri was said to have been a 27-year-old student at the time of applying for the £100,000-a-year job.
In an email leaked to the paper, she allegedly later wrote: “I still have the letter of rec from Boris. hahaha.”
She also reportedly received £10,000 in business cash from an organisation Mr Johnson was responsible for as London Mayor in 2013.
Last month, the PM was referred to the police complaints body to assess whether he should face a criminal probe over his association with Ms Arcuri.
It followed reports by the same paper that she was given £126,000 in public money and privileged access to three foreign trade missions led by Mr Johnson while he was mayor.
Four of her pals also claimed she had told them she had a sexual relationship with Mr Johnson, 55, while he was married to Marina Wheeler.
In the time the pair were said to be close, she was reportedly given privileged access to three foreign trips in one year – despite her tech firm not meeting the eligibility criteria.
