Luke Bryan made fun of Blake Shelton, saying people are only listening to his music because he is dating Gwen Stefani.
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have been dating for about five years now, and the latter admits his girlfriend is the reason for his success. Ever since the country superstar dated the pop giant, his songs started to climb the music charts and now more famous.
Shelton, Bryan made fun of each other
Everything started when Shelton seemed to mock Bryan on a tweet, Entertainment Tonight noted. He shared a photo of a fake news story, alleging drivers were falling asleep when listening to Bryan’s music.
“Wow! Just catching up on the news… Shocking!” he said. “I have noticed some fatigue when @lukebryanonline comes on.”
The One Margarita singer then hit back and used Shelton’s collaboration songs with Stefani, Happy Together and Nobody But You as his reference.
“Your girlfriend is the only reason people are listening to your last two singles,” he said.

“Hey, don’t hate just ’cause I know how to work the system!!!” Shelton responded.
It wasn’t the first time that these two country singers made fun of each other. In 2018, Bryan quipped that he didn’t give Shelton his new number when he changed his phone.
“I don’t wanna talk about him anymore,” he teased. “I don’t feel like I need to boost Blake’s career with my time on TV.”
Shelton’s relationship with Stefani and her three boys
Shelton and Stefani’s five-year romance has been smooth sailing. He doesn’t only have a good relationship with the 50-year-old singer but also to her kids.
He is said to be “completely natural” when it comes to her three sons, Kingston, 14, Zuma, 11, and Apollo, six.
“Blake is a fun guy who is completely natural with Gwen’s kids,” a source told HollywoodLife. “At first, it was weird and difficult, and Blake tried to weather any emotions and storms that came to him and listened to Gwen on how to adapt.”
Thanks to his girlfriend, his love for her, and being a cool guy, his relationship with the three boys is now “full of trust and love.”
“They all really like each other and bounce off each other as a family,” the insider added.
The tipster continued the kids find comfort in knowing that Shelton is not going anywhere.
“That has brought the trust the kids need to the situation,” the source explained. “They are all very considerate to each other and really care about each other and genuinely like each other.”
Thankfully, everything is now “natural and fun” for Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton, and the three boys.
