Janet Jackson has not “inspired” Gwen Stefani to have another baby with Blake Shelton, despite a new claim. It’s simply a made-up fake news story. Gossip Cop has the truth.

HollywoodLife, which has been caught and called out on numerous occasions for concocting untrue articles, is at it again. This time around the often discredited site maintains that Jackson, as a “late-in-life mom, has “inspired” Stefani to have one more child with Shelton. The outlet first regurgitates such readily available information as Jackson was 50 when she gave birth to her baby boy Eissa, and that Stefani is currently 47 years old. It then follows that up with a seemingly made-up quote that wishy-washily alleges Stefani “isn’t focused on it obsessively, but seeing Janet Jackson have a healthy baby at 50 has inspired her to open her mind more to the possibility.” And that’s the extent of the supposed scoop from HollywoodLies, as it is known.

Well, this is “more than a possibility”: The site either relied on a yet another bogus “insider” or simply created this fake news story on its own. The list of articles about Stefani and Shelton that Gossip Cop has caught HollywoodLife making up is exhaustive. Just a few days ago, the repeatedly disproven webloid alleged in an “exclusive” that Stefani and Shelton fight constantly over him wanting alone time. The article was 100 percent a lie. In fact, her rep called it a fabrication and Shelton’s spokesman also confirmed the claim was “made up.”

That falsehood came right on the heels of the outlet publishing back-to-back stories about the couple having supposedly broken up. Of course, that too was fake news. As Gossip Cop accurately reported, Stefani and Shelton did not split up.

So, will HollywoodLies get away with yet another manufactured story? No, it won’t. While it certainly duped a number of equally untrustworthy sites that picked up its fabricated claim, Gossip Cop can stop this fake news story in its tracks. Stefani’s rep exclusively tells us the site’s latest tale about her being “inspired” by Jackson to have another baby is “untrue.” Whether she one day decides and is able to have a fourth child, it will have nothing to do Jackson. Plenty of other regular women, as well as those in the entertainment industry, have had kids later in life.
