A dispute over a prenup has put Blake Shelton and his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, in a bad spot.
It was recently revealed that marriage talks between The Voice coaches have turned into a bitter feud over money and assets.
It is believed that Mr. Shelton has a net worth of $60 million based on album sales and concerts, while Stefani’s net worth is a whopping $90 million thanks to the various products that are stamped with her name and the brands she represents.
Star magazine claims that the No Doubt diva has told her future husband she wanted him to sign a prenup or she will hit pause on the wedding plans.
The publication claimed that the country singer was shocked and even hurt by the words, rules, and penalties in the documents that Stefani asked him to sign.
He always assumed that he was marrying the woman of his dreams who would become the mother of his children one day. Now he is discovering this is a business deal.
A person with details about the story said that Stefani’s surprising move pushed Shelton put his foot down.
He said that he is not signing the prenup, he went as far as telling Stefani that the wedding will only take place when she stops asking him to sign the papers prepared by her attorneys.
The tipster claimed that Shelton was especially hurt to read that he will have to fork over 5 million dollars if he ever cheats on Stefani.
Days have come and days have gone, and Shelton has made no moves to sign the prenup, and his decision has left Stefani hurt and stunned.
Almost all couples in Hollywood sign prenuptial agreements, so Stefani cannot understand why Shelton is making a big deal out of this.
Shelton is easy going with money, for example, Stefani turned 48 on October 3rd, and he gifted her a $60,000 necklace.
A friend of the pair said the mom of three got very emotional upon seeing the gift and added: “Gwen was surprised by Blake today with an amazing vintage Cartier 12.50 karat diamond collar necklace set in 18k white gold. The sparkler Blake picked out himself set him back over $60,000. Gwen was floored when she received the sweet, generous birthday gift. The No Doubt singer was seemingly smitten when she opened the romantic gem. She fought back the tears as she opened the box and can’t wait for the next special occasion with Blake to wear the gorgeous new jewelry.”
Fans are hoping the couple will reach a compromise and get on with the wedding.
