Last night The Voice crowned another winner with country crooner Sundance Head, marking yet another triumphant win for his coach, Blake Shelton.
But as Shelton, 40 — who is eagerly anticipating the return of his lady love, Gwen Stefani, as a coach for season 12 — celebrated yet another victory, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that his longtime friend and competitor, Adam Levine, 37, was intent on starting drama!
"Adam said that Blake had totally rigged it, and Blake told Adam that he was just a sore loser after the show wrapped," the insider said. "Adam does not like losing – especially to Blake."
As fans of the show know, Levine, who has coached three winners to victory since the show first aired in 2011, coached fan-favorite Billy Gillman this season. However, it was not enough to take home the crown.
"The two are in constant competition with each other and always have been," the source told Radar.
"The fact that their contestants were up against each other as the final two really made for some serious backstage animosity."
"Adam did not congratulate Blake. But Blake was apparently trying to rub his win in everyone's face," the source continued. "He was telling everyone that his 'country boy,' won and it was just extremely obnoxious."
