Debunking the week's tabloid stories: Feb. 22, 2019

Gossip Cop Logo Gossip Cop | Slide 1 of 5: Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton backstage during the 2018 E! People's Choice Awards held at the Barker Hangar on November 11, 2018.

Gwen Stefani giving Blake Shelton marriage ultimatum?

Gwen Stefani has given Blake Shelton an ultimatum to marry her or she’ll dump him, reports In Touch, which adds how she’s refusing to wait for her boyfriend of three years to propose.

“[Stefani] needs the security of marriage for herself and her kids’ peace of mind, because they adore Blake and already consider him a second dad,” a source tells the magazine. The tipster asserts, “Gwen’s tried to be patient, but she can’t take it anymore. That’s why she issued an ultimatum.”

The tabloid’s tale, however, conflicts with Stefani publicly stating on the “Today” show that she feels “zero pressure” to get married. Also, her rep tells Gossip Cop the claim is wrong.

In Touch has a poor track record when it comes to stories about the couple. Several months ago, Gossip Cop busted the magazine for falsely maintaining Shelton had “dumped” Stefani. Then in November, the outlet published an untrue cover story saying Stefani was pregnant and getting married to Shelton on his Oklahoma ranch.

And just a month ago, Gossip Cop debunked yet another article that contended Shelton and Stefani were going to make an engagement announcement “very soon.” Of course, if the couple was actually close to making an announcement, then there would be no need for a supposed marriage ultimatum. The magazine’s ongoing saga about Stefani and Shelton is both fabricated and inconsistent
