Are Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton at odds over where to live? That’s the story one tabloid is pushing this week. Gossip Cop investigates.
Gwen Stefani ‘Being Pressured’ By Blake Shelton To Move To Oklahoma?
This week, Life & Style reports “Cali girl” Gwen Stefani is reluctant to give in to her new husband Blake Shelton’s pleas to settle down in Oklahoma. While the couple tied the knot on their Oklahoma ranch, the newlyweds were spotted back in Los Angeles only days after the wedding. An inside source explains, “Most of Gwen’s work is based in L.A., and it’s close to Las Vegas, where her residency is starting up again this fall,” adding, “Plus, her family is in Cali. As much as she loves the country, Hollywood is her true home.”
While the couple has settled back into their 13,000-square-foot LA mansion, Shelton is putting pressure on Stefani to make the move permanently to Oklahoma. “Since the wedding, he’s been putting more pressure on her than ever before to move to Oklahoma full-time,” the insider dishes, “He’s desperate for the two of them to leave the Hollywood scene behind. He thinks his ranch is the perfect place to start their new life as a married couple — and so he’s basically begging Gwen to relocate!”
But the tabloid insists Stefani is not having it. “She had a great time in Oklahoma during the lockdown, but now that everything is opening up again Gwen can’t see permanently moving so far away from her family,” the tipster muses, “She’s happy with their living arrangements as they are. And to be honest, Blake’s pushiness is really starting to annoy her.” The outlet alleges Shelton is even offering to renovate guest houses for Stefani’s family to come and live. The snitch goes on, “He keeps making all these promises, just to get her to move there!” Finally, the source notes, “Gwen has hinted that she’ll spend more time in Oklahoma for his sake, but she’s getting tired of all the pressure.”
Gwen Stefani ‘Annoyed’ With Blake Shelton’s Constant ‘Begging’ To Leave LA?
So, is it true Stefani and Shelton are constantly fighting about where to live? We doubt it. Since Shelton and Stefani got together, their living situation has been a hot topic in the tabloids. But the truth is, there’s no evidence that it’s been a point of tension in their relationship. While the tabloid does note that Stefani’s career keeps her in LA, the same can be said for Shelton. Between releasing his own music and his senior position on The Voice, Shelton still has many ties to California as well.
The only ones who know what the future holds for Stefani and Shelton are the couple themselves. Also, the couple likely talked about where they’d be living before they got married. It’s bizarre to suggest this is only becoming an issue now that they’ve tied the knot. Instead of allowing the newlyweds to enjoy the first few weeks of their marriage, the tabloid decided to insinuate drama. It’s clear there is nothing here but speculation, and it’s likely that Shelton and Stefani are doing just fine.
The Tabloid On Blake Shelton And Gwen Stefani
We wouldn’t trust anything Life & Style has to say about Shelton and Stefani’s relationship. Back in 2019, the outlet claimed the couple had a secret wedding ceremony on Stefani’s 50th birthday. Then, the tabloid reported that the couple was secretly married again, this time alleging they announced they were having a baby. And just last year, the publication tried once more, insisting that this time they were expecting twin boys. Since none of these reports amounted to anything, we doubt they’re really fighting about where to live either. It’s obvious the tabloid has no real insight into their relationship.
