The defender posted a picture of a Mercedes S63 Coupe worth £121,000 without any caption or context.
Lescott followed up the tweet defending himself as he claimed that the post happened when his phone was in his pocket.
He told The Rest is Football podcast: “We play Liverpool and we get absolutely spanked 6-0.
“I think I was at fault for about three of the goals. That tweet, I was actually in the car when Joleon sent that tweet.
“The thing is, he is actually telling the truth.
“How he described it was something ridiculous – he’s sent it from his pocket and he didn’t know it went out.
“But if you remember Twitter back in the day, the last picture in your photos – if you went on Twitter and press a button that picture would be on.
“It must have been ready to send, and he’s put it in his pocket, and he’s accidentally sent the tweet.
“Joleon used to have a car company, and he used to give us cars for good prices, like lease deals.
“In the picture was a S63 Coupe, all singing, all dancing and top of the range.
“It was offered to the lads. That’s the picture which went out.”
The two defenders appeared 100 times together accumulating 7,626 minutes of playing together.
