While on the CMAs red carpet, Luke Bryan was asked by E! News anchor Carissa Loethen to comment on Stefani and Shelton's romance — and he really couldn't believe it was true because of a big reason.


"He didn't come out about that," he said with a rather shocked expression. "You're trying to trick me — this is like when your wife gets you to tell on yourself. I need to see online where Blake has stated that."

He added, "It can't be true, because there's no way Blake could ever score a girl like that. It's not true. I mean, come on people."

Bryan was clearly making a joke, but unfortunately, not everyone found it funny, and reactions to the publications video include, "But he could score a girl like Miranda. Nice," "She's [Stefani] disgusting. Gavin was better looking," and, "HIS COMMENT WAS PRETTY RUDE SEEING THAT BLAKE AND MIRANDA JUST SPLIT UP- ALSO LUKE REALLY SHOULDN'T TALK BECAUSE HE IS ONE UGLY SON OF A ****** HER [sic] SHOULD BE GLAD HE GETS ANY WOMAN WITH HIS LOOKS!"
