Is Blake Shelton really jealous of Gwen Stefaniâs Las Vegas residency? A new report claims he wishes he was the one who scored the gig, and not his girlfriend. Gossip Cop, however, can debunk the story.
Referencing one of Sheltonâs own songs, Star begins its untrue article by asserting, âThere are âProblems At Home,’â and Stefaniâs concert series âis to blame.â A so-called âsourceâ is quoted as saying, âBlake canât believe that Gwen was offered a Vegas deal before he was.â The tabloid contends Shelton believes heâs âway more deserving of the gig thanâ Stefani.
âBlake gripes about how heâs a bigger music and TV star than Gwen and has a wider appeal,â alleges the outletâs supposed snitch. Itâs further asserted Shelton is now âhoping Gwen will use her connections to help him close a deal on his own residency â or at the very leastâŠ bring him out on stage for a few duets during her shows.â But Stefani, maintains the purported snitch, âhates his tit-for-tat mentality. She wishes he was happy for her achievements.â
Thereâs multiple problems with these contentions. For starters, Stefaniâs residency was announced in early April. If Shelton has been bothered by the plans, why are these claims only emerging roughly three months later? Gossip Cop suspects the publication only manufactured this tale because the concerts kicked off last week.
Second, the tabloid fails to acknowledge that Shelton just opened Ole Red Nashville, his second restaurant/music venue, last month, and has a third establishment in the works after originally launching the chain in Oklahoma. Given that Shelton will be the owner of at least three concert halls that he can perform at any time he chooses, he doesnât really have a need for a residency in Vegas.
Third, the magazine also doesnât recognize that the country superstar has shown his girlfriend nothing but support. Shelton sent Stefani flowers to celebrate her opening night, with a card congratulating her. Shelton has also posted about the residency on Twitter multiple times, including on Monday when he wrote, âSo far @gwenstefani has performed 3 shows in Las Vegas. I have been to 3âŠ #stalker.â And in an interview about Stefaniâs Las Vegas shows, she revealed she was âbouncingâ ideas off him, sharing, âHeâs one of those people in my life thatâs super supportive and gets me motivated.â
Conclusion: Star is claiming Shelton is upset about Stefaniâs Las Vegas residency, but is suspiciously only peddling these allegations months after the concert series was announced. The outlet contends he wants his own residency, but he can have a residency any time he wants at the music venues he owns. And the publication further alleges Stefani prefers Shelton was âhappy for her achievements,â but heâs demonstrated multiple times that he is. And Stefani herself has spoken publicly about his support.
All of these facts are left out, showing that the tabloidâs report is entirely off-base. Itâs also significant that just two weeks ago, Star ran an article about Stefani having a miscarriage and being in a âterribleâ state. That life-changing event isnât even mentioned in this new piece, which is further proof that it never happened, just as Gossip Cop had said. The magazine seems to be making up bogus stories as it goes along.
