Gwen Stefani did not order Blake Shelton to lose weight or risk losing her, despite a completely false tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this story. We’re told there’s simply no truth to it.

The country singer looked noticeably slimmer shortly after his split from ex-wife Miranda Lambert in 2015, and Shelton later joked in a radio interview that he had went on a “divorce diet.” The National Enquirer now says that during the two years he’s been dating Stefani, the musician has gained back most of the weight he lost, and his girlfriend isn’t happy about it.

A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “Blake’s gotten more comfortable in the relationship, and he’s gotten pudgy again. Gwen calls him out on it, but he tries to joke about it, saying she should love him more because there’s more of him to love now. But Gwen doesn’t think it’s funny.”

The outlet’s alleged insider further contends that Stefani makes sure her boyfriend eats healthy whenever they’re together, but now that the couple has been apart promoting their new albums, he’s scarfing down lots of fatty food behind her back. “Gwen says she won’t stand for it any longer,” adds the dubious source. “She sees how big his belly has gotten. She tells Blake it’s not only a bad look for him, but it’s bad for his health.”

But while the tabloid hides behind unnamed sources, who basically can say whatever they want without accountability, Gossip Cop checked in Stefani’s rep, who laughed off the tabloid’s report before assuring us on the record it’s complete “nonsense.” The country star’s weight hasn’t been a point of contention in the couple’s relationship, nor does his girlfriend dictate what he eats. In fact, Stefani’s been vocal about him being perfect for People’s “Sexiest Man Alive.”

Actually, Gossip Cop called out the Enquirer earlier this year for publishing a similarly untrue story about Stefani putting Shelton on a “no-alcohol diet” to lose weight. This latest variation on the theme is equally baseless.
