Blake Shelton wants the world to know that this is what the truth looks like. The country superstar, 40, took to Twitter on Wednesday, July 13, to shut down rumors that his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, had launched her tour to an empty stadium the night before.

A report from Perez Hilton on Tuesday claimed that promoters were handing out free tickets before the show to fill seats at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts. But Shelton made it clear in his tweets that the "Make Me Like You" singer, 46, has more than enough fans to fill an amphitheater on a random weeknight.

The Voice coach shared multiple pictures of the crowd at Stefani's This Is What the Truth Feels Like opening night concert, including one that showed a packed house. "That's right everybody. No matter how good your eye site is @gwenstefani show was 'empty' last night," he quipped sarcastically.

In follow-up tweets, he responded to several fans who were tweeting about the rumors. "Wish I could get that many THOUSANDS of people to come see me on a Tuesday night," he wrote to one follower who posted a photo of the audience.

Another fan noted that lowering ticket prices — which was mentioned in earlier reports about Stefani's "empty" concert — is standard practice at the Xfinity Center in the days leading up to a show.

"Yeah but there's no story if you mention that part," Shelton replied, adding two laugh-crying emojis.

The "Came Here to Forget" crooner has been vocal about his support of Stefani, particularly in the past week. On Monday, July 11, he tweeted from the No Doubt frontwoman's rehearsal, telling fans that they should "prepare for greatness."

The night of the show, he posted a photo of Stefani on stage, writing, "Wow … I am a terrible photographer but this is an epic thing to see!!!" He followed that two hours later with this: "Holys–tballs of America!!!!! That was unreal!!!! What was yalls favorite song?! I loved 'Don't Speak'!!!"

Stefani, for her part, shared an Instagram picture of the two laughing backstage. She captioned it simply: "#thisiswhatthetruthfeelslike Gx"
