Blake Shelton Reaches Defamation Settlement With “In Touch” Magazine Over “Rehab” Cover

According to TMZ, Blake Shelton has reached a settlement with In Touch magazine over its September 2015 issue that featured a cover story with the headline “Rehab for Blake: He Finally Hits Rock Bottom.” The accompanying article portrayed Blake as an alcoholic with several of the singer’s alleged drunken antics.

Blake denied the incidents occurred and filed a defamation lawsuit against In Touch and its parent company Bauer Publishing Co.

During a filing Thursday (April 13) in a Los Angeles federal court, lawyers for Blake and In Touch asked the judge to dismiss the defamation lawsuit filed by Blake. The filing did not include any details of a settlement.

A source told TMZ that “In Touch shelled out an undisclosed amount of money to make the suit go away.”
