Late last year, country superstar and beloved Voice coach, Blake Shelton, filed a lawsuit against the parent company of magazine InTouch Weekly. He cited false claims and declared not only were the magazine's assertions wrong, but disputed that they contained any shred of truth.
Since the lawsuit was filed, many documents have been uncovered and made available to the public, allowing a further glimpse into actually what was going on between the singer and the tabloid.
The latest revelation in the case happened in April 2016 and contained an excerpt from the court reporter's journal as she made a preliminary ruling in the case - allowing it to move forward.
She agreed that a reasonable person reading the magazine would likely believe that Shelton had, in fact, been placed into rehab for his alleged excessive drinking.
Now, in a brand new interview with Rolling Stone, Shelton opens up about how he feels regarding the whole issue and the driving force behind why he filed the lawsuit.
"I would say that 98 percent of this stuff you see in tabloids is a complete fabrication," Shelton revealed to the magazine. "Sometimes they get my name right, but that's about it....at some point you gotta draw the line."
Obviously how the story was portrayed was not accurate, nor does it sound like they consulted with Shelton during any type of fact-finding, but that's not all that irks him.
"Enough is enough," Shelton continued. "With that level of a lie, I don't want one kid to walk by that magazine, see that and have it affect who I am in their mind."
"I can't allow somebody to print something like that about me. That could affect my job."
He also says that what they did and how they went about drafting the article made him feel like they crossed a line and says, "now they know they [crossed the line]".
"We're moving forward with that...and that's a good thing for me," Shelton concluded.
