The COVID-19 pandemic has, reportedly, put Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton's relationship to a test. Allegedly, the couple had a rough time when they spent their coronavirus quarantine time at the country singer's Oklahoma ranch.
According to Us Weekly, Stefani and Shelton are "working through a rough patch" after spending most of their pandemic time at his ranch. A source told the publication they "feel suffocated and stressed," stretching themselves to the limit.
Us noted the issues the two are facing come from the stress of moving to their new house. They recently bought a new home together -- a $13.2-million mansion, located in the Encino neighborhood in Los Angeles -- and the transition might have got the best of them.
