It's been almost two months since we learned that Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are getting divorced, and there have been dozens of rumors about how the former couple is coping.
Last we heard from Blake, he was reportedly hooking up with Gwen Stefani on the set of The Voice. Not too surprising, given his fondness for blondes who can carry a tune.
Also not surprising? Blake has been drinking.
Anyone who follows the man on Twitter knows that he likes to tip a glass now and then, but friends say that the 39-year-old's been partying harder than ever in recent weeks, and they're beginning to grow concerned.
“Blake’s partying has gotten out of control. He seems to think it’s normal to be in a constant drunken state, but when he’s drunk, he makes bad decisions,” says a source close to the singer. “His friends are terrified that he could end up dead at this rate.
“Blake needs rehab," the insider adds. "It’s as simple as that.”
Friends reportedly realized the severity of the situation when Blake hit up a weekend-long bachelor party in Cancun last month.
"[Shelton] was doing shots of tequila non-stop and partied with strippers all weekend," the source says.
At one point, Blake apparently stumbled out of his room with a very young-looking stripper (whom the source described as "Miranda Lambert look-alike"), and the two of them began loudly yelling at hotel guests who had assembled in the courtyard.
“Of course, he’s always liked to drink a lot, but now his alcohol consumption has skyrocketed," the insider says. "His close friends have talked about an intervention, but it hasn’t happened yet. They need to hurry, because time is running out.”
