Remember when Blake Shelton was first cast on The Voice as a judge and all the promo pics had him looking lean and mean? Yeah, me too but sadly those days are over and that’s just fine with the 6 foot 5 inch country star. He has never made his heavy drinking a secret and sources close to Blake claim that as his marriage to Miranda Lambert continues to come under fire Blake drinks even more to cope.
According to the July 22nd print edition of GLOBE Blake has actually packed on 50 pounds in the last year and losing them really wouldn’t be too hard if he was willing to slow down a bit. If Blake cut back on his drinks and exercised even a little some of that weight would fall right off but he has made it clear that he has no intention of slowing down.
Rather than getting himself healthier Blake opts to party harder and then hops onto Twitter to brag to the world about how drunk he is. Miranda is said to be his biggest enabler, saying he’s cuddlier when he is bigger. Women are also still throwing themselves at Blake so lack of attention won’t light a fire under him either.
Do you think that Blake has a drinking problem? Isn’t he a bit old to still be partying so heavily and thinking it’s as cool as it would be if he was 21? Is it time for Blake to maybe take a closer look at himself and to reevaluate his life? He certainly doesn’t just sound like a guy who wants to have fun. Instead if I met him while out I’d think he might have a real problem with booze and steer clear of him! Tell us your thoughts on Blake’s drinking in the comments below!
