Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have become more than competing coaches on The Voice. While both Blake and Gwen want their contestants to win on the reality TV singing competition, both celebrities are recovering from recent break-ups. As a result, Shelton and Stefani have been having what some say has gone beyond flirty fun to real romance, reported Hollywood Life.
While Adam Levine and his bro, Blake, used to be the ones who specialized in teasing each other, Gwen seems to have taken the lead on mocking Shelton. And when 45-year-old Stefani and 39-year-old Blake want the same contestant, protect your head as stilettos (Gwen’s shoe) fly!
Stefani has also praised Blake, with exchanges showing their fondness for each other.
“When you’re sweet, you’re sweet!” Gwen told Shelton on one episode of The Voice.
A beaming Blake was thrilled with her compliment.
“That’s the nicest thing you’ve ever said to me,” said Shelton in his aw-shucks style.
All those flirty phrases definitely turned their rumored romance into a viral buzz for The Voice coaches, reported IBT.
Gwen also described Blake as handsome, giving Shelton reason to laugh. And Stefani also tried to lure a contestant to Team Gwen with a surprising insight into just how close she is to the country crooner.
“I’m pretty tight with Blake,” boasted Gwen.
Although Shelton’s spokesperson has denied the reports that Blake and Gwen are dating, Shelton has been candid about how he feels following his divorce to Miranda Lambert.
“It’s amazing how quickly life can turn around for you. I’ve had some pretty cool things in recent times that have happened, and I’m loving it.”
As for Blake’s bromance with Adam Levine, the two still love to poke fun at each other, reported Zap2It.
And not all the goofy guy exchanges even get broadcast. In one outtake, for example, Adam joked about how he felt.
“A perpetual state of anger,” summed up Levine about his feelings.
Blake got Adam back, however, when Levine told a contestant to recognize the stature of Gwen.
“That’s Gwen f***ing Stefani right there,” pointed out Adam.
Blake was quick to joke about that comment and mock both Levine and Gwen.
“That’s awesome, your middle name is f***ing? That’s is rock star. That’s rock,” teased Shelton.
Amid the laughter, Blake is well aware of the rumors that he’s extremely depressed as well as reports that Shelton has gone to rehab, reported Entertainment Tonight.
But all those rumors that resulted in tabloid headlines are not true, said Blake. In fact, he contends that the reality of his life is so far removed from tabloid stories that he has to read the magazines to find out their latest tales.
“I have to pick up a magazine every now and then to see what’s going on with my alter ego, I guess,” joked Shelton.
As for the rehab reports, Blake has been candid about his love for booze, reported People.
Shelton revealed recently that he drinks to relax prior to going on stage.
“So then, I just want y’all to know, I got nervous and I’m still nervous right now, and when I get nervous I tend to drink a little bit, okay,” said Blake with a red Solo cup in his hand.
Blake also has succeeded in achieving his weight loss goals, as the Inquisitr reported.
In addition to going on what Shelton termed the “divorce diet,” Blake has been exercising, said his spokesperson. Shelton also revealed that he even hauled out an old-fashioned push mower and devoted hours to venting frustration on those pesky weeds in his yard, which proved to be good therapy as well as burning calories.
And for those concerned about how Lambert is coping, she’s got a new reason to purr. Miranda just adopted a kitten to comfort her, she revealed on Instagram.
“When your friend @harps226 comes to visit and says ‘oh by the way I picked up a stray kitten on the highway in Arkansas and it’s in the garage’. And then she smile’s this innocent smile. Guess who has a kitten now?” wrote Lambert about her new baby.
Animal rescue is a cause close to Lambert’s heart, as she frequently shares on social media.
