At a taping for The Voice on Monday night, Gwen Stefani laid some serious PDA on Blake Shelton and the crowd ate it up:
After all, it was kind of a big moment. We've known that Blake and Gwen are dating for quite some time now, but this was the first time the love birds displayed their affection in front of a crowd and a camera crew.
Of course, from the start, there have been rumors that Gwen and Blake's relationship is nothing more than a publicity stunt, and instead of silencing those rumblings, Monday night's kiss heard 'round the world did the exact opposite.
A new report from Radar Online claims that Stefani and Shelton's intimate moment was a premeditated move designed to help drum up ratings for The Voice.
“Gwen and Blake’s romantic embrace Monday night was something that they decided to do prior to the taping,” says one insider.
“They are loving this attention and are working with producers now on more ways to let their love shine on air because the audience clearly loved it!”
Well, since the show has yet to actually launch a successful singing career, we suppose producers need to create drama somehow.
The source adds that Blake and Gwen have been "flaunting" their romance on the set, and we're sure many "candid" moments of the couple canoodling behind the scenes will find their way into the show.
