Home / Music News / Tweets About Shakira Lead to Death Threats for "The Voice" Coach Blake Shelton


It seems that a big misunderstanding between Shakira and Blake Shelton resulted in the country star receiving death threats.

In an interview with Chelsea Handler on her E! late-night show, Blake recalled what went down after his first meeting with Shakira. “I got on Twitter one day, and I actually wrote something … a joke like, ‘Hey, I met Shakira today and I didn’t understand anything that she said … and her fans, her fans are, Colombians down there … I was getting death threats, those people were going to cut me, they were going to kill me … it was … a joke!”  

Blake adds with a laugh, “But I actually can’t understand anything that she has to say.”  

During the interview, Handler dressed like Blake’s fellow Voice judge Christina Aguilera, to make him feel “at home.”

Shakira and Usher are filling in for Christina and Cee Lo Green next spring on The Voice. Production on that season is already under way.
