A tabloid has concocted a fictional story about Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo’s relationship, claiming their five-year marriage is in trouble over the singer’s “dark moods.” Gossip Cop looked into the situation. And that makes sense — 16 seasons is a lot of work, and he’s certainly not the first host to step away from the big red chair. In fact, Prinsloo shared two separate Instagram posts to celebrate the couple’s five-year anniversary last month, one of which said, “Best 5 years!”

Halperin, Shirley. Even co-hosts Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson weren’t aware of his departure until the night before it was announced on the Today show. According to Star, Levine has become a “total nightmare” to be around and it’s driving his wife away. If it had been due to negotiations, NBC would not have given up that bargaining chip. Bueno, Antoinette. She hoped that when he came out of it, he’d focus more attention on her, but so far, no dice.” As a whole, this piece is just a cruel attempt to string together some of the major events in Levine’s life to disparage him and exploit a tragedy. It’s totally fair for stars to want to expand their horizons and focus their energies elsewhere. “I am not in the right profession if I can’t handle a bit of controversy,” he said. “He’s a very proud guy, so when he was roasted for the Super Bowl appearance, he took it to heart,” says the alleged tipster. “He’s excited to get home and have nothing to do for the first time,” she laughed. Furthermore, the supermodel is actually ecstatic to be spending more time with her husband. 5 June 2019. Harnick, Chris. We would like to move on from it and speak through the music.”
Gossip Cop also isn’t sure how Levine’s career could “be in turmoil” when he’s voluntarily taking time off from The Voice to spend time with his family. News reported that NBC had already advertised that Levine was returning. “Behati Prinsloo talks motherhood and mission to save rhinos.” Today. The magazine further contends that Levine has been in a funk over his career, specifically referencing Maroon 5’s Super Bowl LIII halftime show in February. Christina Aguleira also left the show suddenly, and she used similar language to describe her reasoning. But at the same time, we know he wants us to keep trucking.” Those aren’t the words of someone broken by grief, and it’s insulting to Feldstein’s memory to imply Levine is ready to give up. As far as the Super Bowl performance, Levine addressed it in an interview with Entertainment Tonight in January. “It was time to move on,” Levine said in an Instagram post describing his experiences on the show. The outlet also maintains that Levine’s exit from The Voice was based on “difficult negotiations” and was the latest in a series of “consecutive lows.”
The “source” goes on to say that Prinsloo has “suffered almost as much as he has from the latest lows in his life. Additionally, Levine and Prinsloo celebrated their fifth anniversary in July with a trip to Mexico. “How Adam Levine Took Control of His Career After Manager’s Tragic Death.” Variety, 27 Nov. “It is what it is.

It was also clearly his decision, as E! Feldstein died in December 2017, more than a year before Maroon 5’s Super Bowl performance and a year and a half before Levine departed from The Voice. It’s totally false. But as Levine told Variety in November 2018 when discussing the loss of Feldstein, “We built this together, and it will never be complete without him. Nothing on either’s social media pages seems to indicate any “dark moods” or “friction” whatsoever. In an interview on the Today show, Prinsloo said it was “good news for me, good news for the kids” when he announced he would be leaving The Voice. News, 23 July 2019. 2018. “Behati tried her best to help him through his grief, but the whole thing was an awful shock to his system,” a supposed source tells the outlet.

Jimmy Fallon Having ‘Meltdown’ Over Stephen Colbert Beating His Ratings?

Gossip Cop can debunk the nonexistent drama. Earlier this month, Gossip Cop busted a similar story from Star’s sister outlet, RadarOnline, which wrongly reported that Fallon was afraid of losing “The Tonight Show” over his ratings. However, the head of NBC himself, Bob Greenblatt, said all rumors of the network being worried about Fallon were “completely false.” The gossip media clearly has no idea what’s going on behind the scenes of late night TV. Gossip Cop can also confirm that Fallon isn’t in danger of losing his hosting gig. 2018. Although it’s reasonable to believe the talk show host isn’t thrilled about his ratings defeat, the idea that he’s headed for some sort of breakdown simply isn’t true. The blog also maintained that the talk show host was “falling into a deep depression” over the situation. It’s worth noting, “The Tonight Show” has a life of its own on digital platforms, which is how most young people view content these days. There’s simply no truth to it. But Stephen’s really got him on the run.”

Gossip Cop also called out RadarOnline last year for trying to make it seem like Fallon has a drinking problem simply because he was photographed enjoying a beer at a Yankees game.

Hoda Kotb’s “Days Are Numbered” At “Today” Show?

Right after Kotb took over Lauer’s job, the ratings actually went up for the morning program. That was the premise of a cover story from one of the celebrity magazine’s one year ago today. “‘Today’: Ratings show replacing Matt Lauer with Hoda Kotb was a winning strategy.” USA Today via Associated Press, 21 Dec. And, of course, the claim that Lauer could be returning to the “Today” show, which the Enquirer’s sister site, RadarOnline, also pushed, was equally false. Now, a full 365 days later, there’s no question whatsoever that the magazine either fabricated the tale itself or it relied on a wholly untrustworthy source. The publication went so far as to assert the network was also “considering reinstating” Lauer. At the time, Gossip Cop said it was nothing more than a work of fiction, and it’s clear 12 months later the report about her being fired could not have been more wrong. Far from her days being “numbered,” Kotb is undoubtedly considered one of NBC News’s biggest and most respected stars. The reason Kotb was set to be fired, alleged the publication, was the program’s “slumping ratings.” And to make its article sound believable, the supermarket tabloid insisted it had a source at NBC who leaked that the news anchor’s “days are numbered.”

The supposed tipster added how the network’s executives felt making Kotb the co-anchor alongside Savannah Guthrie, following Matt Lauer’s firing, was a “big mistake” that had to be “fixed” immediately. From time-to-time, Gossip Cop revisits articles from the previous year to show how they’ve held up, and to point out which outlets are and aren’t dependable sources for accurate information about particular celebrities or shows. Obviously, the tabloid’s tale was (and remains) a complete lie to this day. (National Enquirer)

Are Hoda Kotb’s days “numbered” at the “Today” show? A number of NBC staffers have repeatedly confirmed to Gossip Cop that’s a scenario that’s never going to happen, given the accusations leveled against him and the admissions Lauer himself has made.

Moore, Mandy. As we noted at the time, the two frequently praise each other on social media. Happy Birthday, @Miloanthonyventimiglia. News, 13 Sep. The tabloid further maintained that the actress didn’t mind tricking fans into believing they were truly in love, but her co-star was uncomfortable with the idea. Additionally, although Simpson has appeared in a handful of films, she never intended to pursue a full-time acting career. In January 2018, RadarOnline made up a story about the “This Is Us” cast and crew being frustrated by Moore and Ventimiglia’s so-called “off-screen fights.” The website maintained that the co-stars had clashing personalities and couldn’t stand each other.

Blake Shelton “Wants Out” Of ‘The Voice’ Because Gwen Stefani Didn’t Return?

Weiss, Shari. It bears mentioning RadarOnline has had a bad track record with stories about the couple before that tall tale and since then as well. Basically, the blogs two points about Stefani not being asked back on “The Voice,” and Shelton supposedly being so “resentful” about it that he “wants off” the NBC show, are easily disproven. 2018. “Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton NOT Hunting For Home ‘Where They’ll Exchange Vows,’ Says Rep.” Gossip Cop, 6 Nov.

Additionally, parody falls under “fair use,” meaning it’s legal for others to satirize or spoof copyrighted works. Exactly 12 months ago, Gossip Cop confirmed the actress had no intention of filing a lawsuit over a silly stage show.

As Gossip Cop pointed out, however, Aniston didn’t own anything have to do with “Friends” or her character, so she personally wouldn’t have grounds to sue.

Blake Shelton Asked Gwen Stefani To Leave “The Voice”?

Katsilometes, John. “It kinda builds your ego up when you walk into a room with Gwen. The magazine has also proven to be untrustworthy when it comes to rumors about “The Voice.” In fact, we previously busted this outlet for claiming Shelton and Stefani called off a wedding in part due to his supposed closeness to season 13 winner, Chloe Kohanski. TV Series).” Wikipedia. “Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton Summer Wedding & Baby Report NOT True.” Gossip Cop, 4 Apr. Weiss, Shari. Life & Style claims in its new issue that although Shelton and Stefani “fell in love” thanks to the reality series, she has “no plans to return… for the good of their relationship.” A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “Gwen and Blake don’t fight much at home, but when they were on ‘The Voice’ they disagreed and butted heads a lot.” Continues the tabloid’s untraceable source, “It didn’t always make for a great environment, and Blake told her he wasn’t sure it was a good idea for them to work together anymore.”

The magazine goes on to assert that “instead of signing up for another season,” Stefani embarked on her Las Vegas residency. To recap: The publication claims Stefani left “The Voice” and is refusing to return because of Shelton, even though he has repeatedly celebrated working with her and she has expressed her willingness to come back. “EXCLUSIVE: Blake Shelton on Gwen & Alicia Leaving ‘The Voice,’ Plus Why He’s Worried About Newbie Kelly Clarkson.” Entertainment Tonight, 23 May 2017.

Is Blake Shelton the reason Gwen Stefani is no longer on “The Voice”? The outlet, however, is offering a very different narrative, one that doesn’t even make sense timing-wise. This further underscores that the tabloid’s reporting isn’t credible when it comes to Shelton and Stefani. “The Voice (U.S. She’s seen how spending every single second with your partner at home and at work can really ruin a relationship, and she wasn’t about to let that happen to her and Blake,” claims the supposed snitch. It’s not even logical in the context of Stefani’s Las Vegas residency, which launched in June. It’s now August. The tabloid is oddly making these allegations more than a year after Stefani’s last stint as a coach, and the magazine has a history of peddling misinformation on both the couple and the show. But Gossip Cop can point out significant flaws in this story. There also isn’t any evidence to support this storyline. And Stefani left the possibility of another return to “The Voice” open when she finished her last season. 2018.

And that’s supposedly regardless of “how much money NBC throws at her.”
The alleged tipster contends NBC “made Gwen an offer [to come back], but she’s not taking any chances.

5 Wrong “Today” Show Rumors About Megyn Kelly, Hoda Kotb And Savannah Guthrie

The magazine wanted readers to believe the show was in crisis, while ignoring that “Today” had just scored a major win over “GMA.” As Gossip Cop rightly said then, NBC was not concerned about Kotb’s performance at all, with one contact even telling us that such a claim was “ridiculous.” Indeed, the network was spending the money to send her on broadcasting trips, not preparing to sever ties. hour and “replaced” by Guthrie. And as evident here, two tabloids in particular have been responsible for a lot of these bogus tales. “It’s a no-brainer for the network… Megyn sees the writing on the wall. And when Gossip Cop investigated with Couric’s spokesperson, we were told the contention she was trying to return to the morning program in Kotb’s place was “not even remotely true.”
But in May, the supermarket tabloid continued its anti-Kotb narrative with a cover that declared she was “fired.” This was a bait-and-switch. Celebrity Rumors Hoda Kotb Megyn Kelly Savannah Guthrie

Here’s a Look at the #Bts and Some of Our Favorite Moments from the Week! Having Savannah substitute for Megyn was a test. Matthew Hiltzik, Spokesperson for Katie Couric. Furthermore, Kelly herself had already said she only heard “rumors” about Lauer, and didn’t know at the time if they were true. Below, check out five wrong rumors about the television journalists. Last December, roughly two months after Matt Lauer’s firing, Life & Style published a cover that announced, “Savannah & Hoda: Our Side Of The Story.” A quote on the front of the issue further teased, “Matt betrayed all of us.” But neither Guthrie nor Kotb spoke to the tabloid about Lauer’s controversial departure, or anything at all. It was all deceptively packaged to make readers think the pair gave their first post-Lauer interview. 2018. And Megyn knows it,” an untraceable “insider” alleged. At the time, the NBC veteran was leading the network’s primetime Olympics coverage, but the magazine claimed she was “determined to replace” Kotb and “regain her former morning show glory.” The outlet insisted she was “eyeing a return” to “Today,” and that the Olympics would get “her foot in the door.” The publication conveniently failed to mention that a number of other “Today” staffers were also involved with the Olympics broadcasts, including Kotb. Mark Kornblau, Spokesperson for NBC. Gossip Cop, too, is all about fact-checking and accuracy, which is why we’ll continue to separate fact from fiction on Kelly, Kotb and Guthrie as necessary.

Spangler, Todd. #MegynTODAY.” Twitter, 3 Aug. Life & Style again tried its hand at a “Today” show-themed cover story just a week ago. (Getty Images)
While the biggest male star of “Today” was fired last year, the tabloids continue to churn out stories about the morning show’s top female personalities: Megyn Kelly, Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie. That’s not someone who gathered enough information to “fill a book.”
In February, the National Enquirer tried to make the past and present of the “Today” show collide with an article alleging former anchor Katie Couric was “out for” Kotb’s job. “’Today’ Tops Royal Wedding Week Outright for First Viewer Win Since Winter Olympics.” TheWrap, 22 May 2018. Maglio, Tony. 2017. But the publication was misleading readers, as Guthrie was just one of several “Today” faces who guest-hosted in Kelly’s scheduled absence. Rather, it was claimed her days were “numbered” and that executives were “secretly drawing up plans to sack” her. The claims came after Guthrie filled in for Kelly while she was on vacation. Megyn Kelly Today. While the front of the issue made it seem like the anchor was already given the boot, the story acknowledged she hasn’t actually been canned. Around the same time Guthrie and Kotb actually spoke out, Life & Style peddled a new story contending Kelly was writing a “$10 million tell-all” about Lauer that would be “full of exclusive new bombshells.” An alleged source was quoted as saying, “She wasn’t Matt’s colleague for very long, but long enough to gather information about him to fill a book, which is exactly what she’s planning to do.” But Gossip Cop suspected this piece was only concocted because Kelly interviewed a former “Today” staffer about her relationship with Lauer. This time, the outlet asserted Kelly was being “dumped” in the 9 a.m. Gossip Cop exposed the fabrication at the time, and we were proven right a few weeks later when Guthrie and Kotb gave their actual first interview to People. The irony, of course, is that these gossip magazines are manufacturing untrue stories about journalists, who are all about fact-checking and accuracy. In fact, in the article, instead of offering quotes from the women, the tabloid asserted on its own that “the entire ‘Today’ family feels betrayed by Matt,” and relied entirely on anonymous “insiders” for its claims.

Matt Lauer NOT Returning As “Today” Anchor In “Secret Comeback,” Despite Report

It still is. In fact, their lunch took place nearly 20 blocks away on the Upper East Side. Indeed, in May, an internal report about the investigation into Lauer included recommendations for NBC moving forward. And because the “Today” ratings are allegedly suffering with Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb at the helm, the questionable insider maintains Lauer thinks “those numbers should be more than enough to convince the network to bring him back.” This untraceable “source” asserts, “Matt is certain he can work his way back to the top anchor spot in time [and] be back on TV by the end of the year.” But there’s a few issues with these claims. slot, which Lauer anchored, isn’t remotely in crisis. “NBC News Faces Skepticism in Remedying in-House Sexual Harassment.” The Washington Post, 26 Apr. TODAY IS #1 AGAIN. 26 June 2018. As Gossip Cop explained then, such a contention was outrageously untrue. Also, the network isn’t having major ratings woes. Perhaps needless to say, none of those entailed having him return to the anchor desk. Additionally, in April the Washington Post published a damning report examining how NBC would deal with “remedying in-house sexual harassment.” Bringing Lauer back into the fold certainly wouldn’t be the answer. Quite frankly, that would likely be a lawsuit waiting to happen. NBC. Steinberg, Brian. And considering neither she nor Nash are still with the morning show, it makes little to claim they can “help him return to ‘Today.’” Furthermore, with Nash stepping down from “Today” this past January, it’s quite apparent his opinion doesn’t exactly carry much weight there anymore. Now according to RadarOnline, the disgraced journalist is “secretly plotting his return to television,” and is “convinced he can overcome the sordid sexual harassment allegations that got him kicked to the curb.” A so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “Matt and his people think if enough time passes, he will be forgiven.”

The alleged snitch argues that Lauer is only “guilty” of a “consensual affair,” and claims he believes he has been “unfairly caught up in the rash of #MeToo abusers and did nothing that merited getting fired.” And for his “secret comeback,” the site contends he’s been “spotted skulking around NBC’s Rockefeller Center studios.” Claims the purported tipster, “Matt’s also been meeting with loads of his former producers, including Deborah Kosofsky and Don Nash… He’s trying to convince them to either help him return to ‘Today’” or start a production company. “Matt Lauer: NBC Says Leadership Did Not Know about Anchor’s Behavior.” CNN, 9 May 2018. “Hoda Kotb NOT ‘Fired’ From ‘Today’ Show, Despite Report.” Gossip Cop, 24 May 2018.

They have made it clear that he wants this job.” But when Gossip Cop investigated, we learned he hadn’t had any discussions about joining the reality show. So far, the 13th season has featured everyone from an 11-year-old impressionist to a dancing elderly couple. And that’s not always a good thing. Last November, the National Enquirer ran a crazy article contending Klum and Mel B were “lovers.” They were described as “smitten with each other,” and it was said Klum wanted the singer to “spice up her life.” This, however, was nothing more than an outrageous exaggeration of the colleagues’ close friendship. It should be noted there are even untrue stories about the judges between seasons. “Heidi Klum Spotted Kissing New Boyfriend Tom Kaulitz.” Us Weekly, 26 Mar.

Klum even said, “We’re used to seeing Nick coming onto the stage, but I have to say, she fit right in there.”

Last May, right around the premiere of the 12th season, Life & Style tried to make waves by alleging Klum was in a feud with Banks and thought “two supermodels on one show is one too many.” It was claimed Klum deemed Cannon “irreplaceable,” angering Banks, and a supposed snitch even predicted, “Expect plenty of eye rolls this season from Heidi and Tyra.” The tabloid, however, ignored the fact that Klum welcomed Banks to the show on Twitter. In other words, it’s still business as usual. “Mel B on Instagram: ‘When You and Your Best Friend Hang out Together with Ya Kids Too, You Just Have to Have Your Quick Girly Girlpower Chat Haha @Heidiklum Her…’” Instagram, 20 Nov. “EXCLUSIVE: Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum Talk Working Together Again on ‘America’s Got Talent’.” Entertainment Tonight, 28 Mar.

He did amusingly joke, though, that he felt “shunned” over not getting an invitation. And in a direct blow to the magazine’s contentions, Klum and Banks had already gushed about working together in an interview. “Lily Wilker: 11-Year-Old Animal Impressionist Delights The Judges.” YouTube, 5 June 2018.

Gwen Stefani suffered a miscarriage that shattered her baby dreams and now her wedding to Blake Shelton is in jeopardy. The supposed Stefani “pal,” who seems to have looked up everyone’s age, then says in terribly unnatural language, “Gwen is 48 and was very insecure about not being able to give Blake a baby,” adding, “She knows that would never be a problem for his ex Miranda Lambert because she’s only 34!” “They’ve even put all their marriage plans on hold,” concludes the blog’s seemingly phony source. Does a real friend giddily exclaim, “She was crushed when the ultrasound technician was unable to detect a heartbeat!”? For the most part, Gossip Cop has debunked inaccurate stories from that site, ranging from a phony claim that NBC executives urged the couple to get engaged on “The Voice” to contradictorily asserting Shelton and Stefani were faking their relationship on the music competition show while they really “battle[d] behind the scenes.” And while those reports could just be deemed bad reporting, the blog’s latest article is simply in bad taste. This is fake news at its lowest. And what real friends would discuss such a sad event with a website that has published a stream of lies about her and Shelton? And then there are those almost assuredly fake quotations that include Stefani and Lambert’s ages designed to create more drama. Thursday, February 8, 2018

Blake Shelton Celebrity Rumors Fake News Gwen Stefani RadarOnline In fact, just a month ago, Stefani was pictured smiling on a beach in Mexico with Shelton in a bikini showcasing her tight belly and with a drink in her hand. Still, Gossip Cop fact-checks every article. But the most disgusting part of this article, if one can limit it to a single aspect, is that the site falsely asserts Stefani’s “pals” are leaking personal information about a tragedy, while punctuating each of their sentences with an exclamation point. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this awful, fabricated story. After maintaining she miscarried the country singer’s baby and derailed their “plans to have children,” the often discredited site grotesquely exclaims Stefani’s “pals [are] concerned the tragedy has damaged her emotionally!” Continuing its practical excitement, a seemingly concocted “source” is quoted as saying, “It was very hard for her… since she and Blake tried to have a baby for at least a year-and-a-half!”
The website then contends that Stefani “learned about the tragedy during a recent visit with her obstetrician… though she’s remained silent about their loss.” “She was crushed when the ultrasound technician was unable to detect a heartbeat!” blurts the so-called source. Yet, the repeatedly disproven outlet asserts in its tasteless tale that she found out about the (nonexistent) miscarriage “during a recent visit with her obstetrician.” Of course, the site can’t say when exactly this supposed tragedy occurred because it’s all made-up. (Getty Images)
A new report claiming Gwen Stefani “suffered a devastating miscarriage” that shattered her “baby dreams” and in turn put her “wedding” to Blake Shelton “in jeopardy,” is not only made up, but may also be a new low for a particular website. This isn’t how real people discuss miscarriage. We’re told it’s untrue. For starters, as Gossip Cop was told by an insider, Stefani was not pregnant with Shelton’s child. Next, the blog maintains that following the fabricated miscarriage, Stefani has “remained silent about their loss,” yet it also contends “pals are concerned the tragedy has damaged her emotionally.” If she was quiet about losing a baby, how come so many “pals” know about it? There is so much wrong with RadarOnline’s story it’s difficult to decide where to begin.

Clearly, the publication’s reporting on the TV personality has been a bit off, to say the least. It is possible that, at some point down the line, he’ll write a soul-searching memoir. Gossip Cop can bust the untrue report. But the new cover of In Touch is blaring, “‘Today’ In Turmoil! The magazine further wrongly declares, “So at this point, he has nothing to lose by telling all.”
He could actually lose a lot. Gossip Cop hears his exit agreement with NBC News includes a non-disparagement clause, which would certainly limit what he can discuss in a book. It also doesn’t make sense that the tabloid alleges Lauer will “need whatever cash he makes from the book” or that its source claims he’s “panicking about money.” Yes, he is “out of one of the highest-paying jobs in broadcast journalism,” but with multiple homes worth millions of dollars, on top of what he has in the bank, he and his family are set for life. He knows all their dirty secrets. (In Touch)
Matt Lauer is not writing a $12 million tell-all about the “Today” show and other men accused of misconduct, despite a tabloid cover story. And it makes little sense to suggest he would want to open himself up to litigation. It’s also worth remembering that In Touch is the same outlet that last March falsely claimed Lauer was getting divorced and replaced on the “Today” show. Lauer already may be in enough legal trouble, should any of his alleged victims decide to file suit. Wednesday, January 31, 2018

Celebrity Rumors In Touch Matt Lauer Today Show Everyone was sleeping with each other,” claims this supposed source, who further contends to the outlet, “He’ll also write about his colleagues — Katie, Savannah, Hoda, Al, Ann — and be honest about the ones who stood by him and the ones who didn’t.” This purported tipster even maintains Megyn Kelly will “get her own chapter, for sure.”
At the same time, the publication’s alleged snitch asserts Lauer will “get into the specifics of his misconduct over the years at NBC,” as “he realizes that the juicier the story, the bigger the payday.” Strangely, the “insider” also claims, “The plan is that this becomes the catalyst for Matt’s career recovery.” Gossip Cop isn’t sure how trying to get “revenge” on others and spilling their “dirty secrets” would help his career recover. It is possible Lauer will end up a single man.

Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia NOT Feuding On ‘This Is Us’ Set, Despite Report

In fact, Moore frequently posts behind-the-scenes videos on social media in which she and Ventimiglia are clearly having a great time on set. We’re told there’s no truth to it. Additionally, Moore posted a sweet birthday message to Ventimiglia on Instagram last year. “The show gets successful, then Milo gets self conscious, and he starts withdrawing from the camaraderie of the crew, the producers and his fellow actors.”
The outlet’s questionable insider further alleges that Moore is frustrated by Ventimiglia being “melancholy and not cheerful” while filming, adding, “He walks around with his earbuds in all day or with his head buried in a book.” As for the actress, “she may just be reaching her breaking point,” according to the suspicious tipster. But Gossip Cop checked in with a source involved in the production of the NBC series, who exclusively assures us the webloid’s account of events couldn’t be further from the truth. “‘This Is Us’ Bust! Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the alleged behind-the-scenes drama. Can’t wait to get back on set and celebrate with you next week!!”

We are all so lucky to know you and be in your orbit, Milo. “This has happened with Milo on every hit show he’s ever been on,” a so-called “source” tells the site.

Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton Perform “You Make It Feel Like Christmas” On “The Voice” (VIDEO)

Fans can look forward to seeing the couple sing together again on Stefani’s NBC holiday special next week. I was like, ‘You just wrote a hit… What do you do, you just sit around on your bus writing hits?’” She went on to share, “I took the song and we finished it and I made him do a duet, because I wanted to get as much out of him as I can because he’s so unbelievably talented and such a sexy babe.”
For Stefani, this her first time on “The Voice” stage since earlier this year, when she was a coach during season 12. (NBC)

Blake Shelton Gwen Stefani The Voice TV Recaps But less than a week ago, Shelton took the stage to perform “I’ll Name The Dogs” with fellow coach Jennifer Hudson. And given that the No Doubt front woman is currently in Dubai, it’s clear this performance was pre-taped. In the meantime, check out the BTS clip below, as well as full video of “The Voice” performance! Though the song came out as a single in September and the full album dropped weeks later in October, Stefani and Shelton hadn’t publicly performed the track until now. Couldn’t have dreamed this up!”
Stefani recently revealed in a radio interview that it was Shelton who first came up with “You Make It Feel Like Christmas.” She recalled, “When I listened to the song, it was incredible. And on Saturday, Shelton tweeted to his girlfriend, “Hey @gwenstefani I’ve never been more honored and proud to be a part of an album. As Gossip Cop has reported, “You Make It Feel Like Christmas” is a duet the couple recorded for Stefani’s Christmas album of the same name. Don’t miss me performing #YouMakeItFeelLikeChristmas w @BlakeShelton Mon, Dec 4 on @NBC gx #TheVoice.” Included with the message was a two-minute video featuring behind-the-scenes footage of their pre-performance rehearsal session (see below). I’m so happy for you pretty girl.” She replied, “My favorite thing I’ve ever done is write a Christmas song w you.

Addison Agen “The Voice” Top 10 Video – Watch “Lucky” Performance

For this next round, it was initially surprising to hear Agen would be singing Spears’ mid-tempo pop song. Last week, Agen’s performance of “A Case Of You” once again demonstrated that she’s one to beat during season 13 of the NBC competition. In fact, all four of the coaches gave a standing ovation. The Voice TV Recaps You just got so creative.” Levine then declared, “There are a lot of great singers in this competition and it’s tough, but I will say that I truly believe you are the best artist in this competition.”
He went on to say, “Addison, I mean, you’re the real deal. While the two performers have very different singing styles, it’s clear they’re both set to go far as the season continues. Viewers loved the recording, too, as Agen’s version ranked second on the iTunes singles chart. You just have to trust the artist,” the Maroon 5 frontman said, adding, “I think Addison will hit number one this week.”
As heartbreaking as the lyrics are in the original rendition, Agen’s slowed-down take and emotional delivery made for a powerful performance, which closed the two-hour broadcast. (NBC)
Addison Agen covered Britney Spears’ “Lucky” on Monday’s “The Voice” for her Top 10 performance. And after Levine last week declared Agen was “potentially the winner of the show,” Shelton went on to say his contestant was now the frontrunner. Check out the video below! “It shows creativity. He approved. Adam Levine’s artist was kept out of the top spot by Chloe Kohanski, who is on Blake Shelton’s team. The Joni Mitchell song was suggested by viewers, and the teen’s powerful vocal did the beloved track justice. But in rehearsal, she revealed that she had her own “stripped-down” version of the track and wanted to impress Levine with it. Miley Cyrus said afterward, “You just hit such a soft spot by singing that song for me… You made it so your own in a really good way. You’ve arrived,” and even called Agen “one of the best singers I know.” Watch the video below!

Addison Agen “The Voice” Top 11 Video – Watch “A Case Of You” Performance

And, as a songwriter herself at only 16, Agen appreciated that the lyrics had such meaning. In rehearsal, Levine said this next moment was “important,” but she was “born to sing” Mitchell’s beloved track. Check out the video below! Tonight’s song selection was inspired by fans, as they were able to submit music ideas prior to the broadcast. That gave Agen a bonus on top of the votes cast by viewers, and she was the first one declared safe during the results show. (NBC)
Addison Agen sang Joni Mitchell’s “A Case Of You” on Monday’s “The Voice,” during the Top 11 round. He further said the song showed “the full recognition off what your talent is,” and even declared, “I think this is potentially the winner of this show, but more importantly, one of my favorite voices I’ve heard in a long time.” Watch the video below! Levine even predicted, “I think this is going to go top 5, if not all the way.”
The performance was vocally stunning, as expected, and all four coaches gave a standing ovation. That’s because she was the only contestant whose cover charted in the top 10 on the iTunes singles chart by the time voting closed the following day. Though many in the Top 12 received standing ovations over the course of the night, Adam Levine’s young artist was arguably the most successful. You were gifted. Agen’s place as one of the frontrunners for season 13 is certainly solidified now, but every performance counts. The Voice TV Recaps Jennifer Hudson gushed, “You are beyond great. It’s not even a talent. It’s a gift.” And though this is a competition, Hudson insisted, “Y’all better vote, vote, vote for this girl… You can’t let talent like this slip through the cracks.”
Levine noted the audience was left “subdued” but for the “best reason,” as they were all “moved” by the performance. As Gossip Cop reported, Agen gave her first live performance of the NBC competition last week, beautifully singing “She Used To Be Mine” by Sara Bareilles.

Brooke Simpson “The Voice” Top 12 Video – Watch “Praying” Performance

Coach Miley Cyrus noted, “This two minutes and 25 seconds is your introduction.” The pop star called the song choice “heartfelt,” and Simpson further said she was dedicating the performance to America. (NBC)
Brooke Simpson finally performed live on “The Voice” on Monday, belting Kesha’s “Praying.” Watch the video below! Jennifer Hudson said afterward, “To me what you just did tonight, you represented the power of music… Not only did you do that, you showed what this show is about.”
Simpson wiped away tears as Cyrus said, “J-Hud just took the words from my mouth… You’re what this show is all about.” She added, “It’s too early to say you stole the show, but I think you might’ve.” Check out the video below! There’s three artists left on each of the four teams, combining to make the season 13 Top 12. The Voice TV Recaps I’m somewhere in between,” she said. At the end, all of the other coaches gave an ovation, too, and this was only the first performance of the night. Simpson hoped the performance would reflect her “pop-soul” style. Simpson, who covered “It’s A Man’s World” for the Playoffs, has been considered a frontrunner since the September premiere, but now she had to step up her game and really stand out even more. The voting power is now in America’s hands after viewers watched the coaches build and then narrow down their teams during the Blind Auditions, Battles, Knockouts and Playoffs. She did so with the help of Kesha’s emotional anthem. During the live broadcast, Cyrus was on her feet long before Simpson was finished singing. “I’m not Britney Spears and I’m not James Brown. If they want to make it through to the Top 11, their live performances tonight need to impress viewers at home, as the coaches no longer have any say over who stays in the NBC competition.

Addison Agen “The Voice” Top 12 Video – Watch “She Used To Be Mine” Performance

Levine gave a standing ovation, but it was her former coach Miley Cyrus who spoke first. The Voice TV Recaps Check out the video below! The high schooler said she was dedicating the performance to her mom. The coaches continue mentoring, but they no longer have any decision power over who moves on going forward. Now for her first live performance of the series, coach Adam Levine assigned the teen Sara Bareilles’ “She Used To Be Mine,” which was inspired by the film Waitress, which the singer adapted for Broadway. Agen had tears in her eyes as she sang, and appeared to be so overcome as she connected to the lyrics that she was actually shaking with emotion. In rehearsal, Levine pointed out that Agen wants to be a singer-songwriter, just like Bareilles, and he hoped to highlight how there’s “so much” to her voice. “I know that you’re gonna be here til the very end,” the pop star told her, adding, “You’re so focused and confident. So amazing to see at your age.”
Levine called Agen’s voice “incredible.” He went on to say she can be “an inspiration to so many young women. Following the Blind Auditions, Battles, Knockouts and Playoffs, there’s 12 artists left in the NBC music competition with three singers on each of the four teams. At 16, Agen, who covered “Angel From Montgomery” for the Playoffs, is already one to watch for her stunning voice. The contestants not only have to sing live, but earn America’s votes to stick around week to week. You’re just the pillar of class and dignity and soulfulness… I think you are one of the most special singers, not only in this competition but in this world.” Watch the video below! (NBC)
Addison Agen beautifully sang “She Used To Be Mine” for “The Voice” on Monday, the first live episode of season 12.

Matt Lauer NOT In “Showdown” With NBC Bosses Over Megyn Kelly, Despite Report

“He said if someone overheard his comments, oh well.”

Celebrity Rumors In Touch Matt Lauer Megyn Kelly Today Show (NBC)
Matt Lauer is not in a “showdown” with bosses at NBC over his supposed contempt for Megyn Kelly, despite a bogus new tabloid report. “He’s had enough,” says the alleged tipster, who adds, “As the face of the ‘Today’ brand, NBC bosses feel Matt has to be seen as supportive of Megyn.”
But Gossip Cop checked in with an NBC insider, who exclusively assures us there’s no truth to the tabloid’s story. Lauer, who participated in a cooking segment on “Megyn Kelly Today” earlier this month, has been nothing but supportive of the former Fox News host since she joined the network. Gossip Cop looked into the alleged backstage drama and we can exclusively clear up the situation. We also called out the magazine last month for making up a story about Lauer and Kelly both getting fired from “Today.” The publication clearly has very little insight into what goes on behind the scenes of the morning show. In fact, In Touch has been pushing this phony feud ever since it was announced Kelly had signed a deal with NBC. An article in the latest issue of In Touch claims the veteran “Today” anchor frequently expresses his displeasure with Kelly taking over the third hour of the morning show. Gossip Cop busted the publication earlier this year when it wrongly reported Kelly was taking over Lauer’s “Today” time slot, which obviously didn’t happen. “He was told it was time to get on board with Megyn’s show or he could find another place to work.” The newsman was unapologetic, according to the questionable insider. Share The Facts

Matt Lauer is in a “showdown” with NBC bosses over his contempt for Megyn Kelly. A so-called “source” tells the magazine that network executives eventually chastised Lauer after he was overheard bad-mouthing his new colleague.

Gwen Stefani “Baby On The Way” Claim NOT True

No bump. And while it’s entirely possible she’ll one day have a “baby on the way,” Gossip Cop doesn’t expect the same tabloid that said Stefani was pregnant in 2015 to break the news. Share The Facts

In Touch
Magazine

Gwen Stefani has a baby on the way and is showing a baby bump. She’s very fit, so it really jumped out at me. There’s another red flag when this “source” claims Stefani has “decided to scale back on much of her daily activities.” On the contrary, she has a lot of official appearances coming up, including at NBC’s “Christmas In Rockefeller Center” special later this month, as Stefani herself tweeted just days ago. Wearing skinny jeans and a tucked-in shirt, the songstress’ “famously flat tummy” was clearly still, well, flat. Gossip Cop can bust this story, which comes from the tabloids. The outlet goes on to claim Stefani is undergoing IVF, and cites a so-called “source” as saying, “The medication causes her to gain weight and retain water. “In its place: what appeared to be a baby bump,” contends the tabloid. But according to In Touch, Stefani’s “famously flat tummy” was “gone” when she went trick-or-treating on Halloween. It was obvious.” But the gossip magazine doesn’t seem to know for certain if the star is currently expecting. New photographs actually show the singer doesn’t have a bump at all. But let’s go back to the heart of this story, which is the purported baby bump Stefani supposedly debuted on Halloween. Thursday, November 9, 2017

Celebrity Rumors Gwen Stefani In Touch (Getty Images)
Gwen Stefani does not have a “baby on the way,” despite a report claiming she recently debuted a baby bump. Stefani also didn’t have a bump days before Halloween, either, further indicating that her costume really just gave the false impression of a blossoming belly. And you know what the photos show? She’s then slated to do shows in Dubai in early December. Performing outside at night in cold temperatures and traveling to another continent isn’t exactly taking it easy. The mom of three was wearing a “skintight mermaid costume,” which supposedly caught the attention of an “eyewitness,” who is quoted as saying, “The costume was very fitted, for sure, but it just looked like a baby bump to me. Sure. That’s why she is looking very bumpy.” Yet this same supposed snitch contends later in the article, “Friends are saying that Gwen is pregnant right now.” First off, this “source” can’t be too close to Stefani if he or she is relying on what “friends are saying,” instead of providing first-hand knowledge. One week later, Stefani stepped out again on Wednesday. And second, it makes little sense for the same person to say she’s only “bumpy” due to water retention and weight gain from medication but then say she’s “pregnant right now.”
Which is it? The publication seems to want it both ways, and also seems to hope its tale is long-forgotten in a few months’ time. “Friends don’t expect a pregnancy announcement until she is well into her fourth month, if not even longer than that,” maintains the alleged tipster.

‘Megyn Kelly Today’ NOT “Struggling To Fill Studio Audience,” Despite Report

Unfortunately, this wouldn’t be the first time we’ve had to call out RadarOnline for publishing a phony story surrounding the former Fox News host’s new talk show.

The seemingly phony source further claims the network has “been playing with removing seats and even playing with camera angles so that the studio looks much more full than it really is.” But Gossip Cop checked in with a network insider, who exclusively assures us the webloid’s article is entirely fabricated. Share The Facts

“Megyn Kelly Today” is struggling to fill its studio audience. Gossip Cop can exclusively set the record straight. For starters, “Megyn Kelly Today” has only been on the air for a little more than a month. Gossip Cop recently busted the site for falsely claiming NBC nixed an “SNL” sketch about “Megyn Kelly Today.” There was no truth to that story and this latest one is equally bogus. (NBC)
Megyn Kelly is not struggling to fill the studio audience for her hour of the “Today” show, despite a completely inaccurate report. Yet at Megyn you can hear crickets.” The outlet’s questionable insider adds, “When you can’t get 150 people to watch the show in the audience at 30 Rock, what chance do they have to get anyone to watch the show from home? This is a disaster. The article claims that NBC is having trouble giving away free tickets to the daytime talk show, but there’s no truth to it. Like virtually all new talk shows in their early stages, the program is still finding its footing. It isn’t at all unusual that tickets aren’t as in demand as they are for established shows, such as “The Tonight Show” and “Live with Kelly and Ryan.” Regardless, the webloid’s assertion that the show can’t fill its studio is simply false.

“Will & Grace” Cast On Megyn Kelly ‘Today’ Show – Watch Interview!

She continued, “The idea was, okay we’re going to do this very special ten [episodes], and all of a sudden it was like, ‘oh two more,’ ‘oh we want you for four more, and we want next year too!’ We were like, ‘oh my god,’ and we hadn’t even shot anything. Watch the video below! (NBC)
The full cast of “Will & Grace” appeared on Monday’s debut episode of “Megyn Kelly Today,” ahead of its upcoming premiere on September 28. Hayes gushed, “The biggest reward of the whole thing is getting positive feedback from gay people all over the world. That was kind of amazing the first time that happened.”
Kelly went on to ask the cast if they were expecting the show to be revived for not just one, but two seasons. I’m so excited, and I’m also a little nervous.” Watch the full interview below! It was all because the president of our network heard our table read of the first episode.”
The cast went on to talk about the show’s groundbreaking influence on gay rights, building acceptance for gay characters on television. We’re having a blast.” Eric McCormack joked, “I didn’t think Sean [Hayes] would be as good. Megan Mullally said, “It’s so much fun. Of course, the cast of “Will & Grace” appeared on the premiere episode of “Megyn Kelly Today.” Making her transition from evening television to the morning show realm, Kelly told her audience, “Thank you so much for being here. “It was shocking,” Debra Messing shared. Debra Messing Megyn Kelly Megyn Kelly Today Sean Hayes TV Recaps [They say], Because of your show, it made it ok to be me.” Kelly later introduced the cast to super-fan Russell Turner, who was inspired by “Will & Grace” to come out as gay and become a lawyer, much like the show’s title character. On rebooting the popular NBC series after more than a decade, the full cast discussed how it felt to return to the set of the iconic sitcom. That was my biggest fear.” He added, “We’ve all kept in touch, but the four of us haven’t been in a room together for ten years. “Awesome,” the cast chorused. During the interview, the cast spoke about the highly-anticipated return of the much-loved show.

Chris Weaver “The Voice” Audition Video – Watch “Try A Little Tenderness” Performance!

Hudson even tapped Shelton on the shoulder and pointed at the contestant, as if to say, “Are you seeing this?!”
Shelton finally joined his standing co-stars at the end to give Weaver a full ovation. The performer revealed he first met Hudson two years ago at a party for The Color Purple. Levine then stood as Weaver continued to soulfully sing the classic song, and as the tempo picked up, Miley Cyrus turned around. Openly gay, he spends his nights performing as a drag queen. Check out the video below! You’re a phenomenal singer, but you’re even more special than that to me.”
At this point, Weaver was crying and had a huge decision to make as Cyrus and Hudson made last-minute pitches. The aspiring star’s parents could be seen enthusiastically reacting on the side of the stage with host Carson Daly. (NBC)
Chris Weaver was the very first audition featured on the season 13 premiere of “The Voice” on Monday, and he scored a four-chair turn. He even brought a picture. New judge Jennifer Hudson, giving a look that suggested she’s not one to be trifled with, immediately followed. Levine and Hudson immediately began fighting for his attention, but she quickly gained the upper-hand. “I don’t think anybody has a story like mine,” he said. As he went to unbuckle his belt, Shelton begged, “Please leave your pants on.”
And despite Weaver’s obvious connection with Hudson, Cyrus confessed, “I am so thirsty to win. Watch the video below! And with the NBC competition, he said, “I can take the mask off and show who this voice really is.” He added, “I’m just ready to give the real me.”
When it came time for his big try-out, Weaver was only a few words in when Adam Levine hit his button. The Voice TV Recaps Ultimately, he chose to join Team J-Hud! Blake Shelton pushed his button, too, moments later, and by this point, Hudson was also out of her seat, as was Cyrus. I want to win and I’ll do it with you.” He and Hudson then bonded over their church backgrounds, with the former “American Idol” contestant declaring, “God gave you that voice to sing far and beyond.” Trying to latch on to another one of Weaver’s interests, Blake Shelton said he’s won the NBC competition with artists from various genres, “but I’ve never won with a drag queen.” Added Levine, “You’re the first person who’s ever auditioned who’s giving us an opportunity, not the other way around. But Levine, who threw both his shoe and jacket on stage, wasn’t going to give up so easily. “We’re done,” Cyrus quickly concluded. Before taking the stage, Weaver revealed he’s a worship leader who grew up singing in church.
