A new article alleging to know Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani‘s reaction to Miranda Lambert getting married is made-up. It comes from a site that has a history of fabricating stories about the couple. Gossip Cop can debunk this report, which was quickly manufactured on the heels of the news about Lambert’s wedding with New York City policeman named Brendan McLoughlin.
As it tends to do when news breaks, HollywoodLife concocted a new angle about how Stefani and Shelton feel about Lambert tying the knot with McLoughlin. The blog, which is routinely called HollywoodLies, alleges a “source close to Blake and Gwen” shared with the often discredited outlet that Shelton and Stefani “don’t care” about Lambert’s marriage. The website’s anonymous and untraceable “source” adds that Shelton moved on from his ex-wife “quite some time” ago.
Obviously, Shelton has put Lambert behind him since he’s been dating and publicly gushing about Stefani for the past three years. As for the other contention that the No Doubt singer and Shelton “don’t care” about Lambert, that’s a fairly decent guess and most assuredly did not come from anyone “close to Blake and Gwen,” as asserted by the habitually disproven site. In fact, the blog makes up so many fictitious tales about Stefani that her rep recently told Gossip Cop, “I just pretend they don’t exist.”
Allow Gossip Cop to explain how this made-up story was created. At around 6 p.m on Saturday, Lambert announced on Instagram that she wanted to “share some news.” Alongside a photo of her in white from her wedding to McLoughlin, the country singer wrote, “I met the love of my life. And we got hitched!”
After posting an article about Lambert getting married and then another that listed five facts about her new husband, the blog seemingly decided to come up with a new angle. Now HollywoodLies would like people to believe that magically, within four hours of the wedding announcement (and cranking out two other stories), it was also able to locate and speak to a so-called “source close to Blake and Gwen.” What’s more, the site wants it visitors to also believe its nameless tipster is not only privy to the couple’s inner thoughts about Lambert’s marriage, but he or she was also willing to openly discuss it with an outlet that has a reputation for fibbing instead of a more legitimate one.
It also bears mentioning that in the small window of time between Lambert revealing her news and the blog posting its latest article, Shelton was busy performing a “Friends And Heroes Tour” concert in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and was certainly not yapping about his ex-wife’s wedding. In addition to Stefani’s team viewing HollywoodLies with disdain, as noted above, it’s also doubtful the country singer’s thoughts were passed on to that site, considering Shelton slammed the outlet a few years ago on Twitter.
And then there’s the issue of HollywoodLife’s credibility, since Gossip Cop has repeatedly caught the site lying. Back in April 2017, for example, we busted the blog for falsely claiming Stefani and Shelton had split up, and that it knew “why she dumped him.” Of course, that wasn’t true nor was the outlet’s story maintaining Stefani was pregnant with twins.
HollywoodLies was also wrong when it claimed Stefani was wearing a diamond ring and engaged to Shelton. None of those tales were accurate, and yet the website insisted it had sources close to the couple for each of those articles. Suffice to say, much like those reports, the latest one about Shelton and Stefani’s reaction to Lambert getting married is similarly fabricated.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
