Are Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton splitting up? One of this week’s tabloids claims the couple is “headed for heartbreak.” Find out what’s going on here!

According to In Touch, Stefani “might have to call off her relationship” with Shelton. “After seven months, the honeymoon period is over for the No Doubt front woman and the country star,” declares the magazine. A so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “Gwen and Blake are starting to realize that they are very different people.”

“The things they were most attracted to in each other have now become issues between them,” continues the supposed snitch, who then dishes the classic tabloid line, “They’re on the rocks.” As proof, the outlet points to paparazzi photos of Stefani and Shelton at an airport last Saturday, with an “eyewitness” saying, “They didn’t look like the happiest couple… Gwen seemed very upset. It seemed like they were frustrated.”

Of course, In Touch fails to mention that Stefani gave a surprise performance at Shelton’s concert later that day, and doted on him for his 40th birthday. Still, the tabloid claims “constant quarrels about their divergent lifestyles could be to blame” for their supposed problems. The alleged tipster adds, “They may have rushed into things — there is just so much driving them apart.”

It’s pretty rich that In Touch is talking about rushing into things when the magazine said Stefani was expecting a baby girl in January. That was followed by a report last month saying she might have twins after freezing her eggs. Naturally, neither claim is mentioned now in this new story.

Stefani and Shelton have certainly given renewed meaning to “opposites attract,” and that’s still working for them. It’s entirely possible the couple will break up at some point, but right now, this split speculation is premature. As Stefani’s own rep told Gossip Cop only a few weeks ago, In Touch “just makes stuff up.”
