Dax Shepard is having the last laugh when it comes to “fake” tabloid stories.
The “Chips” actor took to Instagram on Thursday to share a bogus tabloid report asking for comment on how he and wife Kristen Bell are working through issues in their relationship.
“Kristen and Dax have had problems in their marriage, including Dax’s addiction issues, but that they’re very happy now and are determined to make their marriage work,” the email read.
But Shepard’s response is epic.
“DAMNIT! Who in the inner circled leaked?” he captioned the screenshot. “I want names! My ‘addiction issues’ are between me, my sponsor, and the 3-4 folks listening to me speak about it for 4 hours a week on my podcast!”
Bell shared a shoutout to Shepard, who is about to celebrate 15 years of sobriety, on Instagram, writing, “I love you more than I ever thought I could love anyone, and I want you to know, I see you. I see how hard you work. You set an excellent example of being human.”

To the man mocked me in our wedding photos because I cried too many tears of joy, Who wore a baby Bjorn for 2 straight years to show his girls how to be as adventurous as possible, Who held our dear little shakey mann pup for 8 hrs straight on the day we had to put him down, I know how much you loved using. I know how much it got in your way. And I know, because I saw, how hard you worked to live without it. I will forever be in awe of your dedication, and the level of fierce moral inventory you perform on yourself, like an emotional surgery, every single night. You never fail to make amends, or say sorry when its needed. You are always available to guide me, and all of our friends, with open ears and tough love when its needed most. You have become the fertilizer in the garden of our life, encouraging everyone to grow. I'm so proud that you have never been ashamed of your story, but instead shared it widely, with the hope it might inspire someone else to become the best version of themselves. You have certainly inspired me to do so. I love you more than I ever thought I could love anyone, and I want you to know, I see you. I see how hard you work. You set an excellent example of being human. Happy 14th year sobriety birthday, @daxshepard. Xoxo
