Gwen Stefani did not have a miscarriage with Blake Shelton‘s baby, despite a report that’s both late and wrong. What’s worse is that this isn’t even the first time this particular tabloid has run such a shamefully false story. Gossip Cop can bust it.
Last week, RadarOnline posted a completely untrue report about Stefani suffering a “devastating miscarriage” that crushed her “baby dreams” and put her “wedding” to Shelton “in jeopardy.” Gossip Cop learned from Stefani’s own rep that the tale was, disgustingly, all “made up.” Now days later, the National Enquirer is regurgitating the debunked claims in its new issue.
The print article is almost word-for-word the same as the online version, with it being alleged Stefani’s supposed miscarriage has ruined “immediate plans to have children” with Shelton. Like the website did, the supermarket tabloid claims the songstress “learned about the tragedy” at OB-GYN appointment, but has “remained silent about her loss.” Why, then, would a so-called “source” be discussing something so private with the gossip media?
Of course, no one close to her actually did. The “source” quoted in both pieces appears to be fictional. As we previously pointed out, the seemingly invented insider unnaturally references both Stefani and Miranda Lambert’s ages, and contends that her “marriage plans” with Shelton are on “hold” even though there wasn’t really a “wedding” in the works in the first place. While Stefani and Shelton remain smitten with each other, they’ve never had any “plans” to wed.
Most egregious is the miscarriage claim. Stefani was never pregnant with Shelton’s baby and never suffered a miscarriage, confirms her rep to Gossip Cop. To manufacture such an allegation is beyond the pale. More disturbingly, this is not the first time the gossip magazine has concocted such a grotesque narrative. Almost exactly two years ago, this same outlet alleged Stefani was in “miscarriage hell” amid supposed “fears” that she was expecting but “lost” the baby. (The tabloid has since removed the 2016 story from online.)
At the time, the National Enquirer was copying its sister publication, Star, who had made up a miscarriage cover story about the No Doubt front woman the week prior. And both phony reports followed OK!, another sister tabloid, bogusly claiming Stefani was pregnant with twins. As Gossip Cop correctly reported back then, there was no pregnancy with twins and the miscarriage claims were just as fabricated.
It was deplorable then and even more so now that the magazine is recycling the premise. The outlet has long shown to have little credibility when it comes to Shelton and Stefani, even once fudging a story about her supposedly turning down a marriage proposal from the country superstar. But this type of fake news is particularly disgraceful.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
