Stefani Recently Responded to Rumors the Couple Had Called Off a Wedding
Rumors started to appear online in September 2020 that the couple had called off their wedding and engagement plans because of a fight over a prenup agreement as well as a fight over their political views.
This news came out of a report by Us Weekly after a source told the outlet that the couple was having a hard time in quarantine.
“They feel suffocated and stressed,” a source told Us Weekly. “They’re both stretched to the limit.”
Micky.com then reported that the couple called off their upcoming wedding, which was likely untrue as the two were not engaged at the time.
Stefani did not confirm or deny the rumor in an interview with Hoda Kotb on the Today Show, but she did say that she’s not sure what’s going to happen with their eventual wedding, or if they’ll have one at all.
In the segment, Kotb said she Googled the term “Gwen and Blake,” and it autofilled to “Gwen and Blake call off wedding,” which is something that seems to continuously circulate online among fans of the couple. When asked what’s happening with the wedding, Stefani said that it’s a good question.
Obviously, we know now that the two are engaged and will likely be planning a wedding sometime in the near future.
