Gwen Stefani was not "dumped" by Blake Shelton, contrary to a made-up tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the manufactured report. We're told it's completely untrue.
In addition to falsely announcing Stefani was "dumped," the new cover of In Touch also declares, "The live TV proposal is off: Why Blake pulled the plug." Of course, no "live TV proposal" was in the works in the first place, but Gossip Cop will get into that later. First, inside the latest issue, a headline exclaims, "Blake Breaks Gwen's Heart." So, what supposedly happened?
Well, a so-called "insider" claims to the tabloid that "The Voice" producers "would love nothing more than for Blake to propose on live television," but he "knows the timing isn't right." In fact, the gossip magazine's supposed source alleges Stefani is "hesitant" to marry again, prompting him to "put the brakes on everything." "She may have felt dumped, but it's the best for both of them," asserts the outlet's purported tipster.
Still, despite alleging a breakup took place, the publication acknowledges the pair spent Mother's Day weekend together. And as the story goes on, the tabloid backs away from the firm split implied by its cover and article's headline, suggesting instead that Shelton is actually just choosing to "slow down." The magazine's alleged "insider" maintains, "He thinks cooling things off a little will make them stronger in the long run. Gwen not might realize that right now, but trust me, she will."
Trust In Touch's "insider"? Ha! This is the same magazine Gossip Cop busted when it fabricated a story two months ago about Stefani adopting a baby girl. It's also the same outlet that lied almost exactly one year ago about Stefani and Shelton having twins. Notably, none of these imaginary kids are mentioned in this new "dumped" cover story. And with this latest tale, it seems the publication wants it both ways.
The cover was designed to dupe consumers into thinking Shelton and Stefani have broken up, while the actual article inside the edition makes it clear they're not over for good. That was done on purpose so readers will shell out money to buy the issue, while the tabloid has a ready-made explanation crafted in the story for why Stefani and Shelton are still being seen together. The truth, of course, is that Shelton didn't dump Stefani at all, and this whole narrative was made up. Her rep even exclusively assures Gossip Cop it's entirely untrue.
The whole report is also based on an untrue premise. Gossip Cop has repeatedly busted false articles about Shelton and Stefani having an on-air proposal, including one story just last week. No such engagement was ever in the works, so In Touch is quite obviously lying when it points to that fictional claim as the relationship's breaking point. All together, this cover and its accompanying story are 100 percent fake news.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
