Early last week, Gossip Cop busted the latest — and possibly lamest — Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert split report, courtesy of the National Enquirer. In its most recent attempt. the supermarket tabloid claimed the country couple were headed for a “$100 million divorce.”

Now, Shelton is slamming back at the Enquirer. He joked on Twitter, “Wow!! @mirandalambert and I are so excited about our 100 million dollars!!! Who knew you could make so much money just by divorcing?!!” And in response to a fan asking what he’s going to do with the money, Shelton cracked, “Mostly just crack and hookers… Oh and Taco Bell!!”

Of course, this isn’t the first time the two singers have had to contend with divorce rumors. In October, the magazine published a bogus report about Shelton and Lambert splitting, and headed towards a “$40 million divorce.” Apparently, that made-up story wasn’t sufficiently sensational for the Enquirer, so last week it more than doubled the dollar amount. And before that, in the spring, the outlet also fabricated a split story based on Lambert’s jealousy. The Enquirer has said a lot of stuff about the couple that isn’t true. In the past, the tabloid tried linking Shelton to Cher, claiming they had an affair. They also say he was flirting with his “Voice” co-star Shakira, and blamed him for non-existent problems in Kelly Clarkson’s marriage. It’s embarrassing.

The National Enquirer has very little credibility when it comes to reporting on Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert. So when the tabloid prints a “new” story claiming the couple’s marriage “exploded right before Christmas” and that a “bitter divorce battle over the pair’s $100 million fortune is set to erupt in 2014″ — well, it’s just… kinda sad. None of it is true, as we previously reported, and thankfully Shelton and Lambert can joke about it.
