Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have not been told to get engaged and have an on-air proposal on “The Voice.” The claim, made by a repeatedly disproven website, is simply fake news. Gossip Cop has the truth.
In its latest article riddled with inaccuracies, RadarOnline claims the producers of “The Voice” have a “desperate plan to get viewers to tune in again.” According to the often unreliable outlet, the show’s producers are “begging” Stefani and Shelton “for an on-air proposal.” Hell, if they were that desperate to help the rating, wouldn’t they be asking the two coaches to start a family on-air?
Anyway, a so-called “on-set snitch” tells the webloid, “Pressure is really mounting right now for Gwen and Blake to get engaged… since the season is nearing the end.” The same seemingly manufactured source adds, “Blake is all about it, but Gwen is having a hard time listening to anything that they say.” So, devoid of their personal feelings and plans, we’re supposed to believe that Shelton’s only motivation to get engaged is to up the viewership of “The Voice”?
In a feeble attempt to cover up yet another fake news story it had previously made up, the outlet claims even though Stefani and Shelton were told by NBC to “pack on the PDA this season, they have not delivered.” But as Gossip Cop exclusively and accurately reported in April, that story was also concocted by the somewhat untrustworthy site. As we noted at the time, Shelton and Stefani were not ordered to show PDA on “The Voice.” In fact, Stefani’s own rep confirmed it wasn’t true.
The latest article ends with the site’s alleged “insider” maintaining that other staffers at “The Voice” are “blaming Gwen and Blake for their lack of cooperation when it comes to giving the fans what they want.” Funny, we don’t see any bulls, yet somehow we can smell them lurking inside the RadarOnline’s offices. The story is simply one lie piled on top of another lie. If they decide to get engaged, it will have nothing to do with the producers of “The Voice.”
Just to put the outlet’s credibility in perspective, now it alleges they haven’t been affectionate enough, yet a month ago the same site contended Shelton and Stefani were actually faking their relationship for the cameras. Additionally, this fake news story was written by the same person who nine months ago floated that same cockamamie premise, claiming executives were really pushing for Shelton and Stefani to have an on-air proposal (below). Back then, Stefani’s rep exclusively told Gossip Cop the report was “made up,” while Shelton’s spokesperson also assured us it was “nonsense.” Nearly a year has gone by, and if Gossip Cop can give RadarOnline any credit, it’s for being consistent (albeit consistently wrong) and for caring enough about the environment to recycle their garbage.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
