Adam Levine Quits ‘The Voice’ After Diva Behavior
Adam Levine has quit The Voice, days after RadarOnline.com reported show insiders were sick of his diva behavior!
“After 16 seasons, Adam Levine, our beloved coach and friend, has decided to leave The Voice,” Carson Daly said on Today this morning, May 24.
“Adam was one of the original coaches who launched the show, winning the competition three times and inspiring many of the artists that he worked so closely with over the years… He’ll always be a cherished member of the Voice family.”
Daly said he'll be replaced by former coach Gwen Stefani, who is still super serious with Voice vet Blake Shelton.
Shelton confirmed the news on Twitter this morning, teasing his longtime best pal.
Levine's exit shouldn't come as a surprise to RadarOnline.com readers.
A source told RadarOnline.com that during an appearance to promote The Voice in New York City on May 13, Levine had onlookers grinding their teeth because of his childish behavior and bossy demands.
“He was acting up like a petulant kid in front of the crew and other judges,” said the insider. “He’s super difficult on the show set and even worst when he’s in a new environment with a new crowd to show-off to!”
RadarOnline.com first reported that Levine was thinking of leaving the series after seven years in 2018, but struck a “massive” deal last minute and stayed on.
