Is “Used to Love You” singer Gwen Stefani pregnant and single? Probably not. This seems to be nothing more than tabloid fodder. Gossip Cop, the website that famously debunks celebrity gossip, dismantled the rumors about Stefani breaking up with country star Blake Shelton.
The chatter comes courtesy of OK! magazine, which claimed Stefani, 46, sent Shelton, 39, packing after she found texts between him and his ex-wife, fellow country star Miranda Lambert. “We’re told it’s entirely ‘false,’ ” Gossip Cop wrote Wednesday.
OK!’s sensational cover reads: “Over after 125 days.” Underneath it in big, bold letters it states, “Gwen & Blake SPLIT!” Below are two juicy bullets that say, “How ex-wife Miranda destroyed their romance” and “INSIDE: Her vicious and spiteful texts to Gwen.”
The drama apparently started after Lambert, 32, discovered Stefani supposedly called her a “redneck harlot.” Lambert tracked down Stefani’s cell phone number and called her repeatedly, up to four times a day, according to OK!
They didn’t speak initially. “Gwen didn’t bother picking up because the calls were coming from an unknown number. But at some point, she got annoying and texted back, ‘Who is this, and how did you get my number?’ ” an insider told OK!
When Lambert identified herself, they two exchanged insults, the story said. The country star said Stefani’s career was “over” and her music hadn’t “been relevant since the ’90s.”
Stefani accused Shelton of leaking her number to his ex. “He told Gwen to calm down and tried to brush off the situation, explaining that it was just Miranda’s tough ‘country gal’ personality coming through and that Gwen shouldn’t get too worked up about it,” the insider told OK!
