Blake Shelton continues to fight back against tabloid allegations.

As part of the 39-year-old singer's ongoing $2 million defamation lawsuit against InTouch Weekly, Shelton has filed an official statement denying the tabloid's claim that he engaged in an "alcohol-fueled rendezvous" while visiting Cancun, Mexico, in August of last year.

"He did not kiss or hook up with any women while in Mexico," a statement from Shelton's lawyer reads. "He did not have a suite or room with a hot tub, his room was not called a 'Passion Suite,' he did not party with strippers or go to a strip club, he was not doing shots of tequila nonstop, and he was not walking through the lobby of his hotel holding two bottles of tequila."

In an earlier declaration filed by InTouch Weekly reporter Adriane Schwartz, she cited a confidential source that had stayed at the hotel ME Melia and an Instagram photo that appeared to show Shelton posing with a woman "in a room with distinctive tile patterns, lights, drapes and round rug" that allegedly matched the decor of the hotel ME Melia.

Shelton has denied that he was a guest of the hotel, but says that he did visit the Rose Bar on the ME Melia property with a friend, Kevin Canady, per a recommendation from his driver, Felipe Gomez.

"While we were still outside at the entrance near the valet and driveway, a blonde woman who appeared to be exiting the property stopped me and asked me to take a picture with her, as people sometimes do. I did not know this woman, but I agreed to take a picture with her," Shelton says in his declaration.

"While we were at the Rose, I was asked by a lot of people to pose for photographs and I did so. When we left the Rose, we walked back to the valet to get Mr. Gomez's car and we left. Mr. Gomez was with me and my friend the entire time we were at the Rose, and on the way to and from there. I did not have a room at the ME Melia and I did not go to any guest rooms there," Shelton's declaration continues. "When we left the Rose, the only people in the car were Mr. Gomez, my friend, and myself. Mr. Gomez dropped me and my friend off for the night at the Fiesta Americana, where I was staying."

As for the woman depicted in the Instagram photo, Schwartz said that the caption -- the phrase "Just hanging out with Blake Shelton in Cancun last night" paired with emojis of a smiling face, a woman fanning herself, a flame and a heart -- "together reinforce that there was a 'hot' and 'romantic' rendezvous."

In September 2015, People magazine also reported on Shelton's trip to Cancun, citing a source that said, "'Blake had a fun weekend and enjoyed his single life... He had fun with girls and seems to enjoy the attention.'"

Amid Shelton's lawsuit, the country singer is busy promoting his new album, If I'm Honest. On Monday, the singer released a brand new single to Christian radio titled "Savior's Shadow."

"At a very dark time in my life last year I dreamed the first verse of this song," he said in a statement. "I woke up and immediately wrote it down. Now, looking back, I know it was God’s way of telling me that he's here and things are gonna be OK."

If I'm Honest is due out May 20. In an interview with ET's Nancy O'Dell earlier this year, the singer promised to give fans a "direct look" into his life through his new music. See what else he said in the player below!
