It's that time of year again! The premiere of The Voice is just weeks away, and as usual, that means that a couple of members of the show are allegedly considering calling it quits.
As Blake Shelton and Adam Levine unite with the women of the show, including returning coach Alicia Keys and new coach Kelly Clarkson, a source claims that Shelton has grown unhappy with the way things are going backstage.
“Blake has made tens of millions of dollars on The Voice and he has gotten insane exposure for his music, but the money and fame have changed Blake. He is a cry baby if he doesn’t get his own way and he barks orders at people,” a source revealed to Radar Online on Feb. 1.
Shelton, along with Levine, has been starring on The Voice since season 1 and is often joined by his real-life girlfriend, singer Gwen Stefani. As fans of the series well know, Stefani has been known to come and go from season to season but won't be featured on the show's upcoming 14th season. Stefani also wasn't seen during season 13, and her future return to the series has not yet been confirmed.
In recent months, Stefani and Shelton have faced all sorts of rumors, including reports of possible weddings and pregnancies. However, nearly two and a half years into their relationship, they don't appear to have any plans set in stone quite yet. That said, they appear to be going strong and are very happy together.
As for Levine's ongoing role on the show, rumors began swirling days ago in regard to him possibly leaving as well.
“If Adam quits, Blake is definitely walking out behind him,” the insider revealed to Radar Online earlier this week, “And producers are okay with that. After eight years of Blake and Adam doing this, everyone is just ready for a change.”
According to the second Radar Online report, Levine may be ready to walk away from the show and begin to focus on his growing family with wife Behati Prinsloo, who is currently expecting their second child.
The couple is also parents to one-year-old daughter Dusty.
To see more of Blake Shelton and his co-stars, including Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, and Kelly Clarkson, tune in to the premiere of The Voice season 14 on Feb. 26 at 8 p.m. on NBC.
