Taking to Twitter, Shelton tweeted about "being single" and the perks of having Christmas gift baskets all to himself.
One thing I have learned about being single. It is entirely possible to live off of the food I've received in gift baskets. Hurry Christmas!— Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) December 7, 2015
But fans (almost instantly) reacted to the message with complete shock as they wondered what had happened between Shelton and Stefani.

@blakeshelton how are you single if you are dating Gwen ??— Sandra Paquette (@SPaquette32) December 7, 2015
Shelton must have noticed the fallout, so he quickly took to Twitter to clarify his message, writing, "And before yall [sic] start, "single" means not married...."
And before yall start, "single" means not married... Jesus...— Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) December 7, 2015
Whether Shelton wrote the tweet to get a rise on purpose (he is quite the joker) or not, he certainly appears to have enjoyed the reaction to his comment.
Shelton retweeted comments about "The Onion and TMZ going crazy lol," and a fan's message about liking him and Stefani as a couple.
Ha!!!! Probably... https://t.co/WoI3xg78Nb— Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) December 7, 2015
