Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have, allegedly, broken up, but they’re keeping the devastating news a secret from their fans.
According to In Touch Weekly, Gwen Stefani had high hopes for her birthday. After all, she thought that Shelton would finally propose to him on her special day.
Gwen Stefani pressures Blake Shelton to propose
Stefani and Shelton have been dating for five years. So, it was, allegedly, shocking and hurtful for the No Doubt singer when Shelton didn’t get down on his knee to ask if she would marry him.
A source told the tabloid that Stefani confronted Shelton about their relationship and said that it’s best if they just split. After all, it seems the country singer has no plans to settle down with her.
“He’s been divorced twice already and frankly he has a fear of marriage. But that didn’t seem to matter to Gwen. She was hurt and stormed out of the house and checked into a hotel that night,” the source said.
Gwen Stefani splits from Blake Shelton amid ongoing tensions
Stefani was, allegedly, keen to have a ring on her finger by now. And she has also, allegedly, dropped subtle hints but it seems Shelton isn’t picking up on any of them.
“Gwen grew increasingly frustrated and put a huge amount of pressure on him. Blake kept saying it’ll happen when the time is right. Gwen would get her hopes up on special occasions, thinking that he’d pop the question then feel let down and humiliated being left empty-handed,” the source time.
Over time, Stefani and Shelton’s relationship just became more tensed and the resentment between them, allegedly, grew. And the coronavirus pandemic didn’t help save their relationship.
However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. It is unlikely for Stefani to be putting pressure on Shelton to put a ring on her finger. After all, she has also been married before.
It is highly likely for Shelton and Stefani to be talking about their plans and the timeline of their relationship privately. And the couple not getting engaged isn’t a reason for them to break up.
While speaking with People, Stefani also revealed that she and Shelton just finished decorating their house for Halloween. This proves that the couple is still together and that the tabloid’s claims are once again incorrect.
