Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are facing a shocking new rumor. Following an alleged engagement, as well as an alleged pregnancy, Gwen Stefani and Shelton are said to have parted ways.
According to a February 24 report by OK! Magazine, Gwen Stefani and Shelton called it quits days ago after a four-month romance. On the cover of their latest issue, a headline announces their split, claiming it was Miranda Lambert, Shelton’s ex-wife, who came in between them. Although Gwen Stefani has stayed mum on the potential split, the magazine’s source claimed she was receiving mean messages from Lambert.

The feud between Gwen Stefani and Lambert reportedly began after Lambert learned her ex’s new lady was referring to her as a “redneck harlot.” Once Lambert got word of her alleged nemesis’ nickname for her, she reportedly started texting her up to four times each day.
“[Gwen Stefani] didn’t bother picking up because the calls were coming from an unknown number. But at some point, she got annoying and texted back, ‘Who is this, and how did you get my number?” the source explained.
In response, Lambert was said to have revealed her identity and labeled Gwen Stefani a “home-wrecker.” She then reportedly told Gwen Stefani she was lucky then never came face to face and poked fun at her music, which Lambert allegedly claimed was a thing of the past.

While Lambert’s rumored rant against Gwen Stefani may not have had anything to do with her intimate relationship with Shelton, Gwen Stefani reportedly blamed Shelton for allowing Miranda Lambert to have access to her private cell phone number.
“[Gwen Stefani] accused Blake of somehow letting her phone number slip to his ex,” the insider revealed.
In turn, Shelton reportedly attempted to defuse the situation, but unfortunately, his efforts were unsuccessful and ultimately led to his rumored split from Gwen Stefani.
“He told [Gwen Stefani] to calm down and tried to brush off the situation, explaining that it was just Miranda’s tough ‘country gal’ personality coming through and that Gwen shouldn’t get too worked up about it,” the magazine’s source revealed.
Although Shelton didn’t mean to come off as if he was taking Lambert’s side, his comments were taken that way by Gwen Stefani. Still, as the source revealed, “he’s just the easiest-going guy on Earth” who wanted to make the situation easier to cope with for his girlfriend.
Gwen Stefani and Shelton began dating at the end of last year after their on-screen relationship on The Voice turned into a physical romance off-set, and ever since, they’ve been extremely open about their love for one another on the show, and in photos taken around Los Angeles, and in Shelton’s Oklahoma hometown.
As Gwen Stefani’s relationship with Shelton began, Lambert was linked to Sam Hunt, but ultimately went public with R&B singer Anderson East in December of last year.
In the last several months, Gwen Stefani and Shelton have appeared to be getting quite serious with one another, and Shelton seems to be close with Gwen Stefani’s three children, Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo.
According to OK! Magazine’s source, Gwen Stefani has serious relationship issues due to her husband, Gavin Rossdale, having reportedly cheated on her during their 13-year-marriage. As Us Weekly revealed in November of last year, Rossdale has been accused of engaging in a three-year affair with the couple’s former nanny, which Gwen Stefani was informed of by a fellow staffer.
