In Touch Weekly magazine made the claims about Shelton during a September 2015 article titled, "The Real Story: REHAB for Blake," except that, according to Shelton, there is nothing real about the story at all.

Shelton previously took legal action against the magazine, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, he is "seeking at least $1 million for both libel and invasion of privacy, plus a restraining order."

Now, TMZ reports that Shelton has filed a sworn declaration against In Touch Weekly, stating that a number of the claims it published were false, including the fact that he went to rehab — he didn't.

Other claims Shelton denies are, "I did not then nor have I ever hit rock bottom," "I do not drink excessively, binge drink or have a drinking problem," and "I do not drink vodka before 11 AM."

There's also, "I am never drunk, intoxicated, or unable to perform my job on 'The Voice,'" "I do not slur my words or stumble when I drink," and "I have never urinated on a mailbox."

But the claim that probably shocked fans the most was the statement that Shelton cheated on his now ex-wife Miranda Lambert with a number of naked women.
