Although fans seemingly noticed Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani drifting apart at the beginning of 2024, the adoring couple put on a united front amid rumors about their marriage. Are they still together?

Are Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani Still Together?

Gwen reassured fans that the couple was still together and very much in love with an Instagram post on January 29, 2024. It featured a Polaroid photo of the duo in an embrace as she hand-wrote, “Never knew a love like this,” with a heart drawn underneath the snapshot.

The “Hollback Girl” singer seemed to use the sweet message to shoot down rumors that the couple’s marriage was in trouble. It was the first time since 2024 began that either Gwen or Blake had openly addressed the issue.

It turned out the message was a lyric from a duet Blake and Gwen released on February 9, 2024, called “Purple Irises.” The song was about love that stood the test of time, and the couple performed it for the first time live at the Super Bowl LVIII TikTok Tailgate concert on February 11. Later that day, the pair posed for a smiling photo at the big game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.

During a February 14, 2024, appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Gwen showed off the early Valentine’s Day present her husband gave her, flashing a massive emerald and diamond ring while gushing, “I love you Blakey!”

The lovebirds continued to prove that their love was going strong when Gwen popped up at one of Blake’s concerts so they could perform “Purple Irises” together for his fans. She took the stage with her hubby in Houston on February 28, 2024, and they sang the duet. The following day, she also attended Blake’s show in Louisiana and posted backstage footage from the concert.

Why Do Fans Think Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s Marriage Is in Trouble?

While the pair spent Christmas 2023 together with their families, whipping up an Italian ​feast, they were on opposite sides of the country by New Year’s Eve. Gwen performed a show in Las Vegas while Blake appeared on CBS’ New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash.

Ever since 2024 began, both announced exciting new projects in January without the other showing any public signs of support.

Gwen shared the huge news on January 16 that she would be reuniting with No Doubt to perform at the Coachella Music Festival in April but didn’t get a supportive shout-out from her husband in the comments section post about it.

The “Hollaback Girl” singer then revealed she would be the headlining act for the Super Bowl LVIII TikTok Tailgate concert ahead of the big game on February 11, with crickets from Blake about the big gig news.

Gwen was equally silent when the “God’s Country” singer proudly shared an Instagram video on January 22 promoting his upcoming tour. “ONE MONTH until we go #BackToTheHonkyTonk!!!” Blake wrote in the caption, adding he couldn’t “wait to hit the road with” opening acts Dustin Lynch and Emily Ann Roberts.

The tour will keep Blake away from home from mid-February through the end of March. Gwen didn’t comment on the post, but other fans did as they worried about the couple.

“Too bad you and Gwen are having marital issues. I was really hoping that you two would make it,” one person wrote, while another added, “Blake you and Gwen are so awesome together! Just if you are in different places in your life don’t forget to call her and keep in touch. Careers always come before relationships.”

The next day, Blake raised eyebrows when he shared a smiling selfie with country singer Lauren Alaia to promote the season 2 finale of his game show, Barmageddon. His caption was innocent enough, writing, “Playing against my buddy @laurenalaina tonight on the @barmageddonusa season finale … y’all don’t miss it! Tune-in!” but fans saw something more.

“This makes me so sad. I was really pulling for Gwen and Blake. Just hoping there is any real love left in this world. I guess VOWS do not matter any more,” one person wrote in the comments, while another added, “You need to start spending time with your wife before you lose her.”

Blake and Gwen’s Social Media Activity

Aside from Gwen’s Christmas video post, which Blake shared on his Instagram page, he kicked off 2024 by not including his wife in any Instagram posts for several weeks. She appeared in a December 31, 2023, look back his year’s highlights in a video post, which included a clips of Blake attending Gwen’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star ceremony in October, as well as the “Sweet Escape” singer doing the same for him as the “Ol’ Red” crooner received his in May.

Before that, the last full post Blake shared of Gwen was in November 2023, to promote her appearance on Barmageddon, writing next to a photo of the pair, “I love you @gwenstefani but you’re going down.”

On Gwen’s side, Blake was briefly seen from behind holding her hand when the California native was inducted into the Orange County Hall of Fame in an Instagram video she shared on January 12, 2024. Her gushing post about Blake on January 29 came as a welcome relief to fans of the couple.

The pair began blowing up on each other’s Instagram accounts after the February 5 art for “Purple Irises” was released, showing the couple with a 1970’s vibe. Soon, their pages were filled with photos from their performances ahead of the Super Bowl as well as on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
