Blake Shelton and Adam Levine's friendship is frequently the subject of false tabloids stories. Gossip Cop has debunked several bogus reports surrounding the two coaches of "The Voice." Here are five wrong rumors.
Gossip Cop busted Life & Style for falsely claiming Shelton and Levine's "bromance had cooled off." The magazine maintained that the two weren't as friendly as they had been and were just faking their chemistry for the cameras. The outlet further contended that everyone on the set of "The Voice" noticed that Shelton and Levine were drifting apart. Shortly before the phony story was published, however, Shelton opened up in an interview about his close bond with Levine. "He's one of the most loving people I've ever known," said the country star.
Gossip Cop called out HollywoodLife for making up a story about Shelton wanting a baby with Gwen Stefani following the news that Levine was expecting his second child with Behati Prinsloo. In reality, Levine's second child had no impact on his co-star's ambitions to become a father. Levine welcomed his second baby more than a year ago. As recently as two months ago, Stefani said in an interview that she and Shelton are "just trying to be in the moment" and aren't focused on what the future holds.
Gossip Cop also debunked a HollywoodLife report claiming the staff at "The Voice" was surprised that Levine and Prinsloo were having a baby, while Shelton and Stefani weren't. The blog said those working on the show weren't expecting Levine to be having a second child, but they were expecting Shelton to become a first-time dad. The premise was completely made-up and didn't make much sense. Why exactly would it be more surprising for a married couple to be having their second child than it would be for an unmarried couple to be having their first? The website was just capitalizing on the news of Levine's second baby with a totally bogus story surrounding Shelton and Stefani's relationship.
Gossip Cop busted RadarOnline for falsely claiming Shelton and Levine were feuding because the country star's contestant won "The Voice." The blog insisted the Maroon 5 singer felt the competition was "rigged" in Shelton's favor, and it led to "some serious backstage animosity." In reality, the coaches are both good sports when it comes to their reality show. What happens on screen doesn't result in real-life tension. Levine even noted in an interview that all the bickering they do on camera "comes from a place of love," while Shelton added, "We drive each other nuts, but outside of this world, he's one of my best friends and it's because of his heart."
And finally, Gossip Cop shot down a National Enquirer article about Shelton and Levine being "at war" backstage at "The Voice." The reason behind the supposed feud? The tabloid alleged that the country star was hitting on his co-star's wife. As soon as the report emerged, a source involved in the production of the NBC show assured us it was completely ridiculous. As time has proven, the two coaches aren't at odds in any capacity. Levine was asked in an interview earlier this month if Charlie Puth joining the show would interfere with his and Shelton's friendship, and the singer responded, "Nothing could ever get in the way of my love for Blake Shelton."
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
