In Touch has learned that lovebirds Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton can’t seem to agree on where they should put down permanent roots and buy a home together.
“Where they are going to live has become an issue,” an insider close to Gwen says.

Gwen’s whole world is centered on the West Coast. “Her parents live there. The boys are in school there and all their friends are there,” explains the insider.
And despite how deeply ex-husband Gavin Rossdale, 50, hurt Gwen, 46, with his nanny cheating scandal, “She doesn’t want to take the boys away from their dad.”
“Gwen’s told Blake she’d be OK moving out of Beverly Hills and into a nearby place like Hidden Hills, which is known as horse country because of its sprawling ranches,” the source explains. “But Blake argues that it would still be California.”
There’s no ideal compromise. “At heart, Blake is a very simple guy who loves to hunt and spend time on his ranch,” says the insider.
But that doesn’t mean she’s won — yet. The debate about where to live, says the Gwen insider, remains an issue that needs to be solved in their relationship.
