However, all of the recent upheaval isn’t because Joe is battling a serious drug addiction, he says.
“It’s ridiculous,” Joe tells People. “We’re not saying anything for two or three weeks and I’m a drug addict.” He just went quiet because what with the breakup, “I needed time to clear my head.”
“I’ve never touched heroin in my life. Neither has my girlfriend [Blanda Eggenschwiler],” he adds. “It’s hilarious to me, but also frustrating as well. It pissed me off when it’s about my girl and even about myself.”
The rumors have gained so much ground people are even approaching Joe on the street. “People are asking me if they can give me a hug and how rehab is,” he says. “I’m like, ‘You tell me because I’ve never been.’”
