‘The Voice’ coaches receiving pay cuts to avoid getting fired: Rumor

Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, and John Legend’s fate in The Voice is, allegedly, in danger.

According to Globe, The Voice is no longer as lucrative as it once was. As such, the heads of the show, allegedly, asked Blake Shelton, Clarkson, and Legend to accept pay cuts.

An unnamed source told the tabloid that the heads told the coaches that if they won’t accept pay cuts, they could be fired from the show.

The tabloid also mentioned former coach Adam Levine in their dubious story. They said that the Maroon 5 frontman knew that The Voice was no longer as successful as it once was. As such, he decided to leave the reality TV show before it gets canceled.

Unfortunately, The Voice needs to, reportedly, evolve even though long-time coach Shelton is very much willing to stay as one of the coaches.

“All the coaches could see some cuts to their inflated salaries soon. If the show wants to stay on the air for a few more years, everybody is going to have to tighten their belts — or they’ll bring in cheaper coaches,” a source said.

Other than controversies surrounding money and budget, the tabloid also claimed that the coaches have been bickering behind the scenes.

The source claimed that The Voice execs promised to give Shelton big bonuses if he would flirt with Gwen Stefani on the show. However, this arrangement didn’t, allegedly, sit well with Legend.

According to the source, Legend blames Shelton for some of the issues in The Voice.

Other tabloids have also been saying that Shelton and Clarkson are having an affair. After the American Idol winner filed for divorce, she, allegedly, started relying on Shelton for comfort.

The coaches’ closeness is, allegedly, rubbing Stefani the wrong way. As such, the No Doubt singer, allegedly, decided to return to The Voice to watch her boyfriend’s every move.

Rumors debunked

However, none of the claims made by the tabloid are correct. The Voice does not require Blake Shelton, Clarkson, and Legend to take pay cuts. The three coaches aren’t also in danger of being replaced.

It is also unlikely for the producers to be asking Shelton and Stefani to flirt on camera. The couple seems sweet and affectionate in real life.

It is also untrue that Blake Shelton and Legend are feuding. And the country singer and Clarkson are not flirting with each other.
