While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week, Blake, 47, discussed his wife Gwen Stefani’s decision to return to The Voice – the very season that he decided to leave.

“You were on The Voice – and I can’t believe this – 23 seasons,” the talk show host began.

“And then as soon as you left, your wife Gwen came back to do the show.”

Blake replied: “Well I mean, I think I actually put out there to the press too, because everybody wants to know like ‘why are you walking away from the show?’

“And it’s like, well, for the family ya know. For more family time. And then the very next announcement was: ‘Gwen’s coming back!’

“So, maybe she doesn’t want too much family time. Money talks okay? Money talks in this industry,” he joked, taking a jab at his singer-songwriter spouse.

Jimmy chimed in: “Had you coordinated that? Cause it seems like it could’ve been handled better.”

The country star replied: “Not really. If it shows you anything, we are completely not involved in each other’s decision-making when it comes to our careers.”

END OF THE ROAD

Blake revealed last October that he would be leaving The Voice after 12 years on the show.

He wrote on Instagram: “I’ve been wrestling with this for a while and I’ve decided that it’s time for me to step away from The Voice after next season.

“This show has changed my life in every way for the better and it will always feel like home to me.”

He finished: “It’s been a hell of a ride over these 12 years of chair turns and I want to thank everyone at The Voice from NBC, every producer, the writers, musicians, crew and catering people, you are the best.”

Gwen told Extra that his decision to quit was to make more time for his family.

She added: “It’s a lot of time away from the family. Those kinds of things, he just got to a point, he just wants time at his ranch, time to do the other things he loves to do.”

Despite this, Gwen rejoined the show in 2023 as a judge.

Gwen and Blake began dating in 2015 after meeting on The Voice and tied the knot in 2021.

GWEN BEGONE?

But the No Doubt singer’s return to the singing competition has not gotten all rave reviews, with many viewers urging producers to fire her from the panel.

The pop star has faced criticism as fans complain about her live show habits.

During a recent episode of The Voice, viewers watched as judges were forced to pit two of their team members against one another.

The duos were tasked with singing the same song together, with judges then picking one singer as the winner of the challenge.

Many judges struggled with the decision but some more than others.

Gwen, in particular, appeared to have a hard time choosing who she wanted to dub victorious and it frustrated some The Voice viewers.

One critic complained on X, formerly Twitter: “Sick of Gwen never making a choice, didn’t miss her at all.”

While her fans are thrilled to have her back on the stage, others would rather she stayed away.
