Steven Tyler

I Did NOT Fall Off the Wagon

Steven Tyler
claims he did not fall off the wagon before he fell on his face in the shower this week ... but says he understands why people might not believe him.

Tyler -- who went public about his issues with substance abuse in the past -- called in to the "Today' show this morning to talk to Matt Lauer about rumors he was using again.

Tyler responded, "I get that people think that ... It still bothers me a little, but it's something that I have to deal with for the rest of my life."

He added, "We flew last night from Paraguay after that incident and we're in Argentina for two hours. And anyone who knows anyone who uses substances wouldn't be up at this hour having a talk with Matt Lauer and the rest of America."

Moments later, Matt asked, "But you're clean and sober, that's not the issue?"

Tyler replied, "No, it's not the issue."

Man, he's a brave soul for putting that photo out there. Looks like a bar brawl rather than a shower slip!!!

ANYONE can fall in the shower, especially older people... it happens all the time all across the world, especially in hotels. I'm in my 20s and have slipped in the shower or getting out of the shower at least 10 times.. while completely sober... luckily i ended up with a bruised hip at worst.

If he had given Matt a simple "no" to the question in the first place, I'd have been inclined to believe him. But he created an elaborate yarn and was evasive in his answer - typical addict behavior. So sorry, Steve - I think your fall in the shower was indeed the result of your fall off the wagon.

I've fallen in the shower , not fun. It can become very slick and before you know it you're landing a hard surface.

I fell in the shower once, I wasn't sick, drunk, or even dizzy. I just turned around and BAM. Bashed my hip though, not my face, thankfully. It happens.
