Instead of stropping over the story Michelle chose to laugh at the reports and posted a pic of her with newspaper saying: "Oh hell... Apparently I'm a 'crack addict' Hahahaha!! Yeah... Ok!"

She continued the theme but sheltering her embarrassment with more humour adding: "hahaha!!! I can't look my family in the eye!! Haha. Xx ''

Aww, poor Michelle! All she was doing was celebrating her 25th birthday with her girl pals in Anya nightclub in London last week.

Michelle's boyfriend The Wanted's Max George stayed silent on the matter on Twitter but we're sure he sent some supportive texts!

As well as mocking stories on her reported drug habit, Michelle recently opened up about why she called off her engagement.

She told Fabulous Magazine: "We're not engaged any more, but not because we fell out or there was an argument. It was just there was no chance of us getting married any time soon because of our schedules.

"He's away in America most of the time now and we just had a word about it. I'm a traditionalist so if I'm engaged, I want to get married and that's not happening soon."

Ah, Max you need to fly back and see your girlie soon.
