According to many news sources, the alleged proposal was done at Gwen’s L.A. home over a bucket of KFC fried chicken and, ultimately, ended with a “no” from Gwen due to her lack of trust, fear of the inability to have kids, the two’s seven year age difference, her kids and a myriad of other supposed reasons.
Whether you believe the rumor is true or not, one thing’s for sure — there is no hard evidence leaning one way or the other.
7 News Sources That Think Blake Shelton Proposed to Gwen Stefani:
This magazine claims that Blake hid a $1.2 million Tiffany ring in a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken during an indoor picnic the two had in “her mansion in Los Angeles.”
“Shelton allegedly hid the diamond in a box of Kentucky Fried Chicken, yet Stefani couldn’t give Shelton the answer he was hoping for.”
This source is saying Gwen said no because she wants to make sure it’s right for her three kids Kingston, Zuma and Apollo, and the age difference of seven years makes her nervous.
“There’s also the fact that she’s seven years older than Blake Shelton and at 46 years old, she might not have another baby which might become an issue later on if and when the country singer will want a kid of his own.”
The IBT is reporting the Gwen said no because she has trust issues after being cheated on by ex-husband Gavin Rossdale.
“Stefani’s trust issues after ex-husband Gavin Rossdale’s alleged affair with their nanny is among the several reasons she is not ready to marry Shelton.”
4. Radar Online
Radar, which is where I think this alleged proposal may have originated, claims that Gwen not only has trouble trusting Blake, but she’s afraid that “the time may have passed for her to have another baby.”
“While the pair has made beautiful music together during their first six months dating — even recording the duet “Go Ahead and Break My Heart” — Stefani also “believes the time may have passed for her to have another baby,” added the source.”
This online source is saying that Gwen simply has nothing to gain from marrying Blake.
“Stefani simply has very little to gain if she marries Shelton at this point in their relationship. They’re still in the getting-to-know-you phase, which is a wonderful place to be, where all you can see is the good and the great in the other person. It’s completely possible to have an amazing relationship and not say ‘I do.'”
6. Fan Fest
Fan Fest is simply blaming Gwen’s lack of trust when it comes to relationships.
“Stefani is reportedly still not over her ex husband cheating with their nanny, breaking up their 13 year marriage. “Gwen wants to trust Blake, but she fears it could come back and bite her,” claimed the insider.”
The Inquisitr basically just sums up all the rumors in one concise article, but they do add a new touch saying Blake was “dismayed” at Gwen’s rejection.
“But although Blake had dreamed that Gwen would respond with joy when she found that dazzling $1.2 million Tiffany diamond engagement ring in the fried chicken container, he was dismayed at her reaction.”
