Country singer Blake Shelton has once again laughed off reports suggesting he is splitting from his wife Miranda Lambert.

Last week, tabloids reported the couple was heading for a $100 million divorce because he is drinking heavily and she refuses to have his baby.

Taking to Twitter.com on Sunday, Shelton poked fun at the new claims, writing, “Wow!! @mirandalambert and I are so excited about our 100 million dollars!!! Who knew you could make so much money just by divorcing?!!”

After a fan jokingly asked what he was going to do with the money, Shelton responded: “Mostly just crack and hookers… Oh and (fast food restaurant chain) Taco Bell!!”

This isn’t the first round of divorce rumors for the couple who wed in 2011; in October, reports surfaced they were parting ways amid cheating allegations.
