Blake Shelton is astonished at the crazy reaction he's experienced after reports circulated that he was spotted with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.
Shelton recently launched a venue called Ole Red in Tishomingo, Okla., and he and girlfriend Gwen Stefaniwere spotted there on Wednesday night (Nov. 29). Local resident Bobbie LaFevers tells KXII in Tishomingo that she was shocked when she just ran into them at random with Ryan.
A number of Twitter users called Shelton and Stefani out online for being seen with the Republican congressman. Blake fired back, writing:
"I can't even fathom the gossip I read about myself anymore. Seriously.. Literally walked into a restaurant WITH MY FAMILY (including children, LOTS of children), bumped to a politician that I've never even met before, said hello and took pictures."
"(like I would try to do with anyone I meet who asks). Then we immediately left because it was too cold for the outdoor area we had reserved. And now according to the internet we were hanging out or having some big secret meeting in a PUBLIC restaurant!!!!!! WTF?!!!"
"Are you kidding me? I don't do politics no matter WHAT you've read about me and how it's been spun. And THATS the TRUTH from ME. And if you can find it in your heart to hate me for that then so be it. This is out of control..."
"Oh! And one more thing... There is a SH**LOAD of fake accounts out there claiming to be me. Be careful... Actually why the hell are we even on here anymore? Let's go live our lives!!!"
