Blake Shelton wishing his ex-wife Miranda Lambert and her boyfriend Anderson East “all the best” is nothing more than a fake news story. Gossip Cop can expose this made-up report. We’re told no one in Shelton’s inner circle is sharing information like that.
According to HollywoodLife, which has been exposed on numerous occasions for fabricating stories about the country singer, Shelton harbors “no ill-will” towards his ex-wife and now wishes Lambert and her new man “all the best.” The repeatedly debunked site has a seemingly concocted “source” quoted as saying, “Blake heard about Miranda possibly getting engaged to Anderson East this year, and he’s actually happy for her.” The supposed “source” allegedly further tells the outlet that Lambert and Shelton have “both moved on and Blake doesn’t harbor any bad feelings towards Miranda anymore,” before adding, “As far as Blake is concerned, if they hadn’t split up then he wouldn’t be with Gwen [Stefani], and he couldn’t imagine his life without her and the boys.”
Allow Gossip Cop to break down exactly how this fake news came about. HollywoodLies, as it’s often called, appears to not really have any insiders. Instead, the much discredited blog seemingly looked no further than the cover of this week’s Us Weekly, which featured Lambert on its cover with the headline “Wedding Bells!” and published another sentence about how after her “devastating divorce, the country star [found] her soulmate” in Anderson East. Basically, the website jacked the tabloid’s story about Lambert “getting engaged in the near future,” and seemingly added a phony source to say Shelton wishes her and her boyfriend “all the best.”
What HollywoodLies tends to do is it takes information that’s been published elsewhere and tries to spin it with generally positive, yet fake quotes from unnamed sources. The reasoning behind the non-negative remarks is that celebrities are less likely to call the blog out. In this instance, for example, why would Shelton slam the outlet for allegedly saying he wishes Lambert “the best,” “doesn’t harbor any bad feelings” towards her, and is happily involved with Stefani? It’s an interesting tactic, but it’s also not journalism. And the site’s story is also made-up.
As Gossip Cop has proven time and again, HollywoodLife manufactures a lot of fake news about Shelton. And its purported insiders frequently don’t have any real information. For example, just one week ago we busted the webloid for wrongly reporting Stefani was pregnant with Shelton’s twins. And a few months before that, Gossip Cop nailed the untrustworthy site for falsely claiming Shelton and Stefani had split up.
Nor can we forget the completely fake news story HollywoodLife published about Lambert’s reaction to hearing Shelton had married Stefani. Much like the new fabricated article, the site had a “source” who eerily similarly stated that Lambert “wished them well.” Of course, Shelton and Stefani are not married, and like the current tall tale, HollywoodLies simply took an inaccurate tabloid cover (in that instance OK!) and manufactured phony source quotations around it.
Again, Gossip Cop has been assured by actual Shelton confidantes that no one real in his camp is sharing anything with disreputable sites like HollywoodLies. Like the aforementioned stories and many others, the latest article about Shelton wishing Lambert and East “the best” is nothing more than fake news.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
