Blake Shelton: ‘I’m Tired of Reading Rumors About My Personal Life’
Singer Blake Shelton is tired of reading “bullcrap” about his personal life in the tabloids, insisting gossip mongers need to “move on to someone else.”
The country star has become a tabloid target ever since his divorce from Miranda Lambert was made public in July and he embarked on a romance with his fellow The Voice judge Gwen Stefani, who was also newly single after parting ways with her husband of 13 years, Gavin Rossdale, in August.
Since their relationship began, Blake and Gwen have found themselves the subject of many a false news story, with unfounded reports suggesting the No Doubt frontwoman is pregnant one week, and splitting from the “Honey Bee” singer the next.
Blake, 39, has frequently used Twitter to shut down the rumors, but now he is using the microblogging site to blast the press for fueling the fascination surrounding his personal life.
“I’ve read more complete bullcrap about my personal life, my next album and my job on The Voice this week than ever before…EVER before!,” he fumed on Twitter.
“If my life was half as chaotic as they say it is I’d be dead…,” he added. “My god, I wish they’d move on to someone else!!! It’s so old at this point.”
Following his rant, a fan tried to justify the speculation by pointing out that there had been photos of Blake and Gwen looking glum from earlier in the week, prompting reports of relationship problems.
“I looked unhappy because there is always a herd of complete dips**ts chasing us around taking pictures…” he snapped.
