Are Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton on the outs? Days ago, a series of offensive tweets, which were allegedly shared by Shelton years ago, hit the web.
According to a report, Shelton posted several comments to fans, which have been deemed racial and homophobic.
“Wish the d*****bag in the next room would either shut up or learn some English so I would at least know what he’s planning to bomb,” read one of the alleged tweets sent by Shelton in 2011.
He also allegedly tweeted, “So I just figured out a great excuse for my sick fantasy about Dakota Fanning. I thought she was Amanda Seyfried,” despite Fanning being just 16-years-old at the time.
In response, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton were said to have hit a rocky patch in their relationship.
“Gwen is absolutely mortified about Blake’s Tweets,” an insider told Hollywood Life on August 14. “She’s a California, die-hard liberal with a huge fan gay fan base. Her first love was Indian, and her brand is built on female empowerment.”

“She has so many feminist-themed hits, and now she’s finding out the man she wants to marry might secretly be this big hate monger who just happened to be on his best behavior since she came into his life!” the source added.
Shelton also reported shared an allegedly homophobic tweet, which said, “Any man that tries Touching my behind He’s gonna be a beaten, bleedin’, heaving kind of guy.” However, the message was said to be Shelton’s spin on a lyric from Shania Twain’s “Any Man of Mine.”
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton began dating nearly one year ago after she parted ways with her former husband of 13-years, Gavin Rossdale, and he ended his marriage to Miranda Lambert after just four years of marriage.
As Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton got to know one another better as they filmed The Voice Season 9 at the end of last year (they also appeared together during the NBC series’ seventh season), they began to fall for one another. In November 2015, they went public with their relationship while visiting an after party for the Country Music Awards in Nashville, Tennessee, which had been attended by both Shelton and his ex-wife, Lambert.

After going public, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton began sharing their flirtations on The Voice and appearing together throughout Los Angeles. The couple also began spending time as a family with Stefani’s three children, Kingston, 10, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2, in Los Angeles and at Shelton’s home in Oklahoma.
While Gwen Stefani has stayed silent in regard to the tweets, which were allegedly sent by Shelton years ago, Hollywood Life’s report may not be completely correct. After all, the couple recently took the stage together in Dallas, Texas, where they performed their duet, “Go Ahead and Break My Heart.”
As E! News revealed to readers on August 14, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton surprised the audience during Stefani’s “This is What the Truth Feels Like Tour” in Dallas for one of their “most adorable” moments yet.
“From video footage shared by fans online, it’s clear that [Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton] could barely take their eyes off each other for more than a second,” the outlet stated. “During Stefani’s solo, Shelton lip synced the words right back to her before the two broke out in song together.”
