Luke Bryan jokes Gwen Stefani is a better catch than Miranda Lambert (VIDEO)
After weeks of rumors, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have finally confirmed their relationship status, and while the couple are reportedly very happy together, there's a country star who was left in shock by the news.
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!"
