Christina Aguilera has reportedly been at odds with Gwen Stefani for years due to her alternating role on The Voice, but now, the women’s alleged feud has boiled over to Blake Shelton as well. According to a new report, Christina Aguilera is currently up in arms over news of her co-stars possibly receiving bonuses from the network.
On March 10, Radar Online reported news of a “secret sweetheart deal” producers allegedly offered to Stefani and Shelton after the couple went public with their romance during filming on season 9.

“Blake and Gwen are getting an interesting offer from the show’s execs,” said the source. “Producers want the two of them to give fans a full-on love-fest this season when she is a mentor on Team Blake, and they are going to throw in huge bonuses for exclusives, such as on-air duets, engagements, etc.”
Stefani and Shelton starred on the seventh season of The Voice together as well, but it wasn’t until the end of last year, months after both parties split from their spouses, Stefani from Gavin Rossdale and Shelton from Miranda Lambert, that things between them became romantic.
Meanwhile, Christina Aguilera has returned to her coaching position, despite rumors she may be permanently replaced, but at the same time, Stefani has landed a new gig as a mentor to Team Shelton, and Christina Aguilera isn’t happy about all the alleged perks her co-stars are receiving due to their romance.
“[Christina Aguilera] is furious!” the Radar Online source explained. “Christina wants Gwen out of the picture and is already throwing mini-tantrums about it. She said that Gwen is ‘not vocally talented’ and would not be on the show at all anymore if it was not for her relationship with Blake.”
As for how Shelton feels about Christina Aguilera’s alleged issues with him and his girlfriend, the source claimed he wasn’t at all worried about her antics. Instead, he is focused on the positive things of The Voice, including his new relationship.
“Blake really does not care what [Christina Aguilera] does or says,” the insider said. “He is a completely different person now because of Gwen, so much more laid-back. He said that he’s grateful the show is the reason that he and Gwen found each other.”

On March 7, OK! Magazine shared a report claiming Christina Aguilera is so over Stefani and Shelton that she’s threatening to quit The Voice.
In the report, a source explained that Christina Aguilera felt Stefani was milking her romance in an effort to get ahead in her career. While nothing of the sort has ever been confirmed by anyone on the show, Christina Aguilera seems to feel, according to the report, that Stefani and Shelton’s relationship may not be nearly what it is today if The Voice wasn’t in the picture.
The outlet also claimed Christina Aguilera was leaning on Miley Cyrus as support as her drama with Stefani and Shelton continued. Just as Stefani was brought aboard The Voice Season 10 as a mentor for Shelton’s team, Cyrus was brought to the new season as a mentor for Christina Aguilera’s team, and while Aguilera and Cyrus have certainly established a working relationship at this point, Cyrus has reportedly also been at Aguilera’s side through the drama.
