The singer, who has been battling drug abuse for years, checked into the latest season of Celebrity Rehab in a bid to kick his habit, but in a new Los Angeles Times interview, Garrett claims producers encouraged him to relapse in a bid to boost ratings.
He says, "(The producers) asked to get some footage of me using, and I said, 'I haven't been using'. They said, 'We really have to get footage of you using.' Anyway, I was easily talked into showing them."
Scott Acord, vice president of VH1 Communications, has denied Garrett's claim, stating, "The show's producers would never ask anyone to use... PERIOD."
Garrett, 49, filmed his segments for the reality show with actors Eric Roberts and Jeremy London.
Since the show the I Was Made for Dancin' singer ' has pleaded no contest to a 2010 heroin possession charge and entered court-ordered rehab.
