Gwen is joining the new season with another new host, Pharrell Williams, who produced her track Holla Back Girl a decade ago in 2004. Christina is currently taking a break from the show.
Christina and her fiance, Matthew Rutler, welcomed daughter Summer Rain by C-section back in August. They announced the birth on Twitter, writing “So proud to welcome our beautiful daughter Summer Rain Rutler into the world.”
However, insiders claim Christina is insecure that Gwen could steal her place on the talent show for good.
“Christina is extremely threatened by [her temporary replacement] Gwen [Stefani],” a source tells OK! Magazine. “She knows that if the ratings are higher on Gwen’s season than they were on hers, the producers may have no choice but to ask Gwen to stay on.”
“Christina’s in a world of paranoia right now,” adds the source. They add, Christina is also worried Taylor Swift’s guest appearance will be a ratings smash. “She’s ready to fight for her spot.”
