BLAKE SHELTON is suing “In Touch Weekly” because of a cover story from last month that said his out-of-control drinking, partying, and womanizing is what ended his marriage to MIRANDA LAMBERT.
The story also claimed he’d hit rock bottom and was heading to rehab. He filed a defamation lawsuit yesterday in L.A. asking for more than $1 million in damages, plus an injunction that would prevent the magazine from repeating the allegations.
Blake’s brushed off a thousand tabloid stories in the past, but this one got to him, and you can understand why because they pulled out all the stops. They claimed Miranda caught him with “a bunch of naked women” in their home.
That he drank vodka before noon and was slurring his words, that his friends were talking about an intervention, and were actually “terrified” he could end up dead. That he went to a bachelor party after his divorce and ended up in a hot tub with strippers.
The lawsuit states that he’s “had enough,” “has not hit rock bottom,” “is not in rehab and has no plans to go to rehab.” The suit also says Blake asked “In Touch” for a retraction but didn’t get a response.
So… he now has given them HIS response…
and–BELOW Blake makes a special announcement for his fans!
