Blake Shelton is NOT “begging” Gwen Stefani to keep their relationship off social media, despite a report from one of the tabloids. Gossip Cop can debunk the story.

According to In Touch, Shelton has become “more and more protective” of his “private” romance with Stefani. A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “He’s asked Gwen to stop posting so many selfies of them.” The magazine explains that Shelton “worries that their public displays of affection may turn off fans — or worse, cheapen their very real romance as they undergo in vitro fertilization to have a baby and discuss marriage.”

“He just wants to keep their special moments private. It’s the first time they’ve disagreed about something,” claims the supposed source. The tipster goes on to say Shelton “knows the public needs to be a part of their love story. He just doesn’t want to constantly share all these pictures of them kissing or hanging out backstage.”

In Touch gives the impression that Stefani is clingy and obsessed while Shelton has no interest in showing off their relationship. Neither characterization is accurate. The country superstar is not blindsided when the No Doubt front woman posts about their romance on social media.

And Shelton does it a fair amount himself. Just two days ago, he retweeted a video of Stefani performing, writing, “So cool.” Two days before that, he posted his girlfriend’s new “Misery” clip, exclaiming, “It’s here!!!!!!” That was after a tweet last week in which Shelton shared Stefani’s teaser, telling followers, “Sooooooooooo good!!!!”

Clearly, Shelton isn’t hiding his affections on social media. And the notion that he’s “begging” Stefani to start doing so is false. Gossip Cop is told the couple remains on the same page. In Touch, though, keeps filling its own pages with untrue details… like the baby girl the tabloid said Stefani and Shelton were expecting back in January.
