Christina Grimmie Emotional Farewell For Family & Friends

6/17/2016 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Christina Grimmie's family gathered in her hometown for a final farewell, and invited her fans to share in the experience.

The 'Voice' singer's family had a private funeral Friday morning, and then streamed a memorial service with friends and relatives from Fellowship Alliance Chapel in Medford, NJ.

The biggest tearjerker came when Christina's mom got up and thanked everyone ... especially her son, Marcus, who was with Christina last week when she was murdered in Orlando

Not a single dry eye.

Christina Grimmie Killer's History with Violence

6/13/2016 4:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0613-Kevin-Loibl-mugshot-02Cops were called to the home of Christina Grimmie's killer, Kevin Loibl, on at least two separate occasions for battery ... TMZ has learned.

According to a police report obtained by TMZ ... Kevin and his father's fiancee, Dawn, got into an argument in 2013 at their St. Petersburg home. Dawn told cops Kevin slammed the door on her arm and broke her wrist.

Kevin gave cops a different story claiming Dawn was intoxicated, and he slammed the door while fleeing to his room. He said he didn't know her arm was in the doorway.

Cops noted Dawn appeared to be "very intoxicated" and she couldn't tell officers if Kevin acted intentionally. No arrest was made.

Cops were also called in 2014 for a fight between Dawn and Kevin's father. Again, no charges ... but fair to say, it was a turbulent home situation.

As we've reported, Loibl's family taped an apology note to their door following Grimmie's murder.

Exclusive Details

0519-christina-aguilera-whitney-houston-nbcupdate_graphic_red_bar4:45 PM PT -- The duet isn't going to happen, after all. Sources connected to the deal tell us Whitney's estate decided to pull the plug once they saw the finished product 2 days ago.

We're told they weren't satisfied because the hologram simply "didn't look like Whitney." Producers and the estate reps all agreed Christina was flawless, but until technology can do the same for Whitney ... no deal.update_grey_gray_barIt appears the Christina Aguilera-Whitney Houston duet rumors are true -- what looks very much like video of the performance just popped up on the Internet ... briefly.

It was supposed to be a surprise for Monday's season finale of the "The Voice" -- though there's been a ton of buzz about it, so the surprise was already kinda blown. It's unclear who got the footage or how it ended up on a Facebook page ... but it's already been taken down.

We've seen the whole thing, and we won't blow the whole secret ... but it appears Christina will sing a medley of Whitney's hits with the hologram. 

'Voice' reps haven't gotten back to us yet about whether the footage is legit.

EXCLUSIVE

0512-craig-wayne-boyd-wedding-ring-TMZ-01"The Voice" winner Craig Wayne Boyd put a smile on his baby's face by making her an honest woman ... on the sly.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ the country star got hitched to his fiancee, Wilhelmina model Taylor Borland, on April 28, but there was no big fancy ceremony. Instead, they did the deed at the Franklin, TN courthouse. Craig's assistant and 2 of Taylor's family members were there too.

CWB's wedding ring is turquoise with diamonds, and we're told it set Taylor back about $10k. Don't worry, she's got a giant rock on her hand too. 

The couple plans to throw a huge party at the end of the year for family and friends. Craig and Taylor got engaged last August, and already have a 4-month-old daughter.

EXCLUSIVE

0325_miley_cyrus_the_voice_getty-2Miley Cyrus is getting the chair.  We've learned she'll be a coach on "The Voice" Season 11.

It's a big deal for lots of reasons. It's an extremely high-profile show, and producers have decided not to rotate Gwen Stefani back into a coaching role, currently held by Christina Aguilera.

Our sources connected with the show say Miley will be a key player because she appeals to the desired TV demo.

It also means Shakira's on the back burner. 

Miley will be joining Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Alicia Keys.  Pharrell will not be returning.

Blake and Gwen Maybe It's Real

12/16/2015 6:23 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani may be the real deal, because not only is sweeps over, the show's done too ... but they're still together.

Blake and Gwen left the after-party for "The Voice" Tuesday at Avalon in Hollywood, and they sure seemed together.

As for how long it will last ... the bets are on.

Blake Shelton Mouthful o' Gwen

Blake Shelton playfully gnawed at Gwen Stefani while "The Voice" was on a commercial break Monday night.

Officially, for all the doubters, the TV sweeps period ended 12 days ago -- so maybe they're not together just for ratings.

Then again, for you true believers ... there is still a 'Voice' finale to promote. 

Blake Shelton Lackluster Emotion for Gwen 'Relationship'

11/19/2015 6:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Blake Shelton does not sound like a man head over heels in love these days.

The country star was heading into a studio Wednesday when the photog asked about his relationship with Gwen.

Listen closely. He qualifies his answer with the always dreaded word "friends."

Some people thought it was true love. Some thought it was a quickie rebound. And some thought it was a sweeps ploy. BTW, sweeps ends next week

Gwen and Blake Adam Busts Their Chops On 'The Voice'

11/9/2015 6:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Blake Shelton gave Adam Levine an opening on "The Voice" Monday night, and Adam seized the moment by poking fun at Blake's relationship with Gwen Stefani.

Here's the context ... Gwen was Craig Wayne Boyd's coach during Season 7, and got him to cut his hair. Gwen ended up letting Craig go, Blake took him and Craig won.

Now watch the clip ... Blake's doing a call back to Season 7, but Adam is lying in wait and not only made it seem like Blake was referring to his relationship with Gwen, he even mocked her laugh.

Adam's funny.

Miranda Lambert 'The Voice' Helped Ruin Our Marriage

EXCLUSIVE

0722_blake_shelton_miranda_lambert_composite2Miranda Lambert claims cheating was not the only reason her marriage fell apart ... Blake Shelton was way more into "The Voice" than her, and she felt like an abandoned wife ... so say our Miranda sources.

Our sources say Blake's hit TV show was a constant source of conflict between them. She says he had to spend between 7 and 8 months a year in Los Angeles ... a place she "hates." Nevertheless, the sources say she would fly to L.A. to see him -- sometimes just for a day.  

But Miranda claims he rarely reciprocated by coming to Oklahoma or wherever she was working.  

The sources say Miranda felt abandoned and ultimately said, "This is no way to live."  

As for the cheating ... both sides are not backing down and accusing the other of infidelity
