Country superstar Blake Shelton has mocked recent tabloid reports suggesting his marriage to Miranda Lambert is on the rocks.

Rumors emerged that the pair is heading towards a $40 million divorce amid claims of cheating.

The split speculation coincided with separate and unfounded claims they are also expecting a child and that Shelton is locked in a furious feud with Cher, who has helped him mentor contestants on “The Voice.”

Taking a swipe at spurious stories, he writes on Twitter.com, “I just read back to back NEW stories that mirandalambert (sic) and I are having a baby, divorcing, cheating and feuding with cher. Must be true!

“If it costs 40 million dollars to get a divorce then how will we ever afford it?!!! We had that money set aside for health care!!!”
