Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are close to The Voice host, Carson Daly since they’ve worked together on the show for years.

So, when Ariana Grande joined the singing reality TV show, Shelton and Stefani wanted the newcomer and her husband, Dalton Gomez to hang out with everyone from the cast.

However, in its Dec. 6 issue, National Enquirer claimed that Daly refused because he doesn’t like Grande and Gomez. In fact, The Voice coach thinks that the couple is spoiled.

“Blake and Gwen have started getting really friendly with Ariana and her husband, and they’ve tried to bring them into the circle – but Carson is pushing back. He has been giving Blake and Gwen a hard time for hanging out with Ariana and Dalton, who he’s branded as spoiled kids,” the source said.

The source added that Daly’s refusal to join the couples is making things awkward for everyone on the set of The Voice. In fact, Shelton and Stefani have found themselves in a difficult spot because they now have to choose which couple they would hang out with.

According to the insider, Grande and Gomez have a blast whenever they are with Shelton and Stefani because they adore the happy couple. Shelton and Stefani also feel the same way about Grande and Gomez, but they also want to hang out with Daly and his wife.

“Gwen and Blake adore Carson and Siri, and they still want them to be around. But there’s no doubt Ariana and Dalton are angling to get closer to them. Meanwhile, Carson and his wife want to hang on to their place in the pecking order, which is putting Blake and Gwen in a very tough spot,” the source said.

However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt.

There is no indication that Shelton and Stefani are being forced to choose between the two couples. And there’s also no proof that Daly doesn’t want to hang out with Grande and Gomez.

Since Daly hosts The Voice, he doesn’t have any choice to be to encounter Grande almost on a daily basis. So, they don’t have any other option but to get along with each other.

It’s not also true that Daly thinks Grande and Gomez are spoiled because he has never made this kind of comment publicly.
