There is a rumor that Blake Shelton has quit The Voice 2016 due to his girlfriend Gwen Stefani.
The lovey-dovey couple met on the set of the reality competition last year. Stefani was a temporary replacement for Christina Aguilera who was on maternity leave.
Meanwhile, the country crooner has been with other judges Pharrell Williams and Adam Levine in the previous seasons but according to a source from Radar Online, his relationship might compromise his work as a coach.
As per the insider, Shelton would like the producers to sign Stefani back on Season 12. He might not want to continue his stint on the Voice 2016 if the producers won’t accept the deal.
“Blake is seriously pushing for the higher-ups to offer Gwen a contract for Season 12. The Voice executives already know that Gwen and Blake together is ratings gold because they saw it last season,” the source said.
Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys replaced Aguilera on the big red chair for Season 11. You might want to remain updated about Stefani’s status on the singing competition.
The show execs might also consider giving them a spinoff show. OK! Magazine (via Inquistr) allegedly reported that it could be a variety show.
Shelton and Stefani could both work their magic in finding real talent, says the source. More than that, the couple’s natural chemistry will add spice to the new show if there will be any.
However, this could give a more hectic schedule to the 40-year-old singer. Nonetheless, it might not be a burden because he loves working with his ladylove.
The couple’s relationship has been going strong despite several controversies. There have been rumors that they are secretly married and will be having children soon.
