Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil has had enough with the rumors that his dispute with drummer Tommy Lee is delaying the hard rock band's massive comeback tour.

RadarOnline exclusively reported the '80s rockers were set for a $150 million Live Nation tour -- on the terms that Neil loses weight and gets treatment. Anonymous ources close to Neil reportedly said he wouldn't comply with the promoter's demands unless Lee sought out help first. 

So Neil posted on Twitter Tuesday (Nov. 5) to set the record straight -- leaving all anonymity behind. "People these rumors are false. I haven’t spoken to any band member’s since movie premiere," he wrote. "I had to cancel shows due to back problems which I am getting treatment now. There is no tension between me and Tommy. Don’t believe anything from These so-called gossip sites. Keep Rocking."

Check out his statement below.
