He has struggled with addiction problems for most of his life but this morning Steven Tyler spoke out to refute claims that his horrific fall on Tuesday was caused by intoxication. 

The 63-year-old Aerosmith front man called in to The Today Show to discuss the issue with host Matt Lauer and revealed an image of himself taken shortly after the fall in which he sported broken teeth and a nasty black eye.

Tyler, who fell whilst taking a shower, first entered rehab back in 1984 but insists that this time he was completely sober.

'I went in looking like Baryshnikov,and walked out looking like [boxer] Leon Spinks!' her told Lauer.
