The National Enquirer loves phony health scares and bogus speculation about Blake Shelton. Why not combine the two? According to the tabloid, “Miranda Lambert is cracking the whip — and forcing her hard-partying hubby Blake Shelton to shape up after a recent heart scare.” Heart scare?

“Blake had a serious scare recently,” explains a so-called “source” for the Enquirer. “He went to bed after a wild night of downing tequila, beer and tubs of fried chicken and woke up in the middle of the night with searing pain shooting from his chest through his arms.” The tab’s insider continues, “He was gasping for air for a few minutes before he finally pulled himself together. He called Miranda, who’s been on tour, and she told him to rush to an emergency room.” Wow, that sounds scary.

Why didn’t we read about Shelton going to the hospital with chest pains? Because, conveniently for the Enquirer, “the pain passed, and Blake later attributed it to heartburn or indigestion.” Oh, come on. “It was a huge wake-up call, though,” says the magazine’s source. Actually, this should be (yet another) “wake-up call” to the Enquirer: Get better Shelton sources. An actual source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop the supposed health scare never happened.
