Though The Voice's statement hinted Adam Levine could come back to the hit show after ending his 16-season run, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that he has no plans to return to his seat — ever!
"He has made it clear he is not going to return," an on-set source told RadarOnline.com, adding that the star had a negative attitude the entire past season after no wins in six seasons. “He was a cry baby."
He eventually inked a new mega-million dollar deal last year, but this time, the source said he felt "pushed out" by the new talent, including John Legend.
"Adam was just fed up and acting like a total diva," the source explained.
“Blake has been vocal about wanting Gwen back forever. It is all he talks about," the source said.
Now, Stefani will replace Levine and coach alongside Shelton, Legend and Kelly Clarkson.
