The Voice just had a shocking cast shakeup, but that’s not the only drama with the show lately! Click through to find out all the behind-the-scenes commotion, from secret lovers to diva demands and rule bending!
Linda Perry Celebration For The Song
Christina Aguilera is not returning for season 11, according to an announcement, but the singer reportedly threatened to quit first before being replaced by Miley Cyrus! A source told RadarOnline that she was mad that Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton were getting all of the attention on the show!
Xtina was even more livid that producers offered Gwen and Blake, whose relationship started off as a secret, money to keep their relationship on camera, with “huge bonuses for exclusives, such as on-air duets, engagements, etc.”

All the while, Aguilera couldn’t stop bashing Stefani behind-the-scenes! “She said that Gwen is ‘not vocally talented’ and would not be on the show at all anymore if it was not for her relationship with Blake,” the insider said.

While Gwen may be hitting it off with Blake, she and Adam Levine are not so close! “He’s offensive to me sometimes,” she said of the Maroon 5 front man. “He is so inappropriate. And I have been in a band [with all boys] for my whole life — I know inappropriate!”

And the soon-to-be-father is dirty, too! “He’s just on another level,” she continued. “Adam has raised the bar for me. He has gone places that my band hasn’t gone. He’s bad. Whatever version of this show you see at home, I get the X-rated version.”

But Gwen’s fellow cast mates don’t have much nice to say about her. “[She] loves to talk with people about their problems…but then she’ll tell the next person their secrets,” an insider revealed. Her blabbermouth behavior has earned her a bad rep and her fellow judges “have learned not to trust her.”

Christina isn’t the only diva—Pharrell is quite demanding, too! “It takes him hours to get ready,” a source told OK!. “There have been times when he’s sent his stylist out to get a different shirt, which has set production back” and “if things don’t go as planned, he loses his temper.”

Williams doesn’t have a sense of humor, either, and constantly feuds with Shelton! “Pharrell is shocked that Blake can get away with any joke he wants because of his country twang,” an insider told OK!. “He’s really gotten under Pharrell’s skin — to the point where Pharrell has asked to change chairs so he doesn’t have to sit next to Blake!”
The New York Daily News reported in 2014 that contestants are required to sign a contract that says execs can “change the rules at any time, eliminate contestants at any time, even if they are ‘winning’ with the public, ignore the show's voting system, which includes sales figures for contestants' songs on iTunes, in the event of problems and force contestants to undergo medical or psychological testing and, under certain circumstances, release the results on TV.”
