After 16 seasons with The Voice, it was evident that Adam Levine was ready to move on but Black Shelton “didn’t expect” for Levine to leave when he did.
“I didn’t expect it. I didn’t expect Adam to pull the trigger like he did. … We all knew he was getting to the point – it was 16 seasons he had been doing the show, and it’s hard to keep him focused on anything. He was ready to move on. … I was pretty upset that Adam was gone,” said Shelton.
According to insiders Adam had a more hectic schedule than the other judges and his wife, Behati Prinsloo is glad that he’s gonna be able to slow down and spend more time with their daughters, Dusty Rose, two, and Gio Grace, 16 months.
Levine will be replaced by Shelton’s girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, who previously coached contestants for three seasons on the show. Here’s the complete story from Iquisitr.
