Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton are close friends, but is their bromance in trouble due to Blake’s romance? Luke says he’s not along to hug or get anywhere near Gwen Stefani. Is Blake jealous of his buddy’s good looks and worried Luke might steal his girl away?
It seems even cowboys can get jealous. Blake Shelton, 39, might be tight with Luke Bryan, 39, but it seems that Gwen Stefani, 46, might come between these country music bros. Luke seems to think that Blake’s afraid that Gwen might ditch him if she gets anywhere near the “Strip It Down” singer, and that’s why they have yet to meet!
While attending the CMT Artists Of The Year Awards in Nashville on Dec. 2, Luke claimed that he hasn’t had the pleasure of meeting Blake’s new girlfriend. “He doesn’t want me to hug her or anything,” Luke told Entertainment Tonight while on the red carpet. “He doesn’t want me to meet her.”
Considering that Luke was sitting next to Gwen at the American Music Awards, we wonder if he really hasn’t met Gwen yet. Luke could just be joking, like how he remarked, “there’s no way Blake could ever score a girl like that,” when he first heard that the two of them were dating. Maybe those jokes are the real reason why Blake hasn’t invited his bud over to meet his new girl.
Blake was riding solo at the CMT event and that was highly unusual since he and Gwen have been nearly inseparable since they begun their romance. When they do happen to be apart, they constantly Facetime each other. But when they’re together, they’re all smiles and major PDA. How sweet!
While Luke is a handsome guy, Blake doesn’t have to be so overprotective of Gwen. Luke has been married to his college sweetheart, Caroline Boyer, since 2006. They even have two boys together. So perhaps Blake could relax and introduce Luke to his “stunning and beautiful” girlfriend.
Maybe Luke can be a bro and lay off his jokes about Blake. When asked about his opinion about the romance between The Voice judges, Luke suggested Gwen needed to get her eyes checked out. “My stepmother is an optometrist,” he said, “and I’m trying to get Gwen an appointment with her.”
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is Luke just horsin’ around and teasing Blake? Or, do you think there’s some real jealously there between these two friends?
