Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani recently sparked rumors that they are having problems in their relationship.
Last summer, Life & Style claimed that Blake Shelton wasn’t thrilled when he found out that Stefani will be returning to The Voice. But their fellow coaches, John Legend and Kelly Clarkson couldn’t be happier to have the No Doubt singer on board.
Gwen Stefani too clingy towards Blake Shelton
A source told the tabloid that Stefani wants nothing more than to be with Shelton 24/7. However, the country singer doesn’t, allegedly, feel the same way.
“They live together, record together, perform together and now they’re going to be working together on TV again. I would be a lot for anyone to deal with,” the source said.
Blake Shelton asks for space from Gwen Stefani
The insider also said that Stefani and Shelton always hanging out together has started to put a strain on their relationship. And the latter could no longer take it that he urged Stefani to stop smothering him.
“Blake told Gwen that he needs some space. She was taken aback at first, but she took it in stride,” the source said.
“Deep down, she knows that if she clings too tightly, she risks losing Blake, and that’s the last thing in the world that Gwen wants,” the source said.
But according to Gossip Cop, it seems that the tabloid took Stefani’s words out of context. During her interview on the Today Show, Stefani admitted that she’s obsessed with Blake Shelton.
“I am so obsessed with Blake Shelton that I went back and I watched old interviews between you guys because I’m so fascinated that he was alive back then; I didn’t know him,” she said.
The rumor-debunking site also said that the tabloid was wrong to say that Shelton was forced to do things with Stefani. After all, he recorded, performed, and moved in with the singer because he wants to do and not because he was forced.
More Blake-Gwen rumors
This isn’t the first time that Life & Style published dubious claims about Stefani and Shelton. Last year, they claimed that Stefani was clashing with Clarkson. A source told the tabloid that Shelton also disliked the American Idol winner.
Weeks earlier, the tabloid claimed that Blake Shelton and Stefani tied the knot on the latter’s 50th birthday. However, this isn’t the case. Until today, the couple still hasn’t tied the knot.
