Gwen Stefani is rocking and rolling on her This is What the Truth Feels Like tour with Eve.

But could the singer’s relationship with Blake Shelton suffer because of time away from her man?

A source told Life & Style that their relationship is “struggling” due to the long distance factor.

“They are out of the honeymoon phase,” an insider told the gossip mag. “They’re just very different people and it feels like the end of their relationship could be soon. They’re clearly on the rocks.”

Rumors aside, Stefani seems to be enjoying her time in the Sunshine State. A few days before hitting South Florida, she was photographed at Disney World in Orlando with her children (dad is her ex, Bush rocker Gavin Rossdale).

And on Wednesday night, Stefani took the stage at the Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach in fine form.

According to a review in The Palm Peach Post, The Voice coach stayed true to her past, playing various No Doubt songs — classics like Don’t Speak, It’s My Life and I’m Just A Girl.

Not only was her performance spot-on but so was Stefani’s body.

“Gwen looks even more amazing than she did in the ’90s,” reported The Post. “How she stays in such amazing shape or where she found the Fountain of Youth serum, we’ll never know. Even after having three adorable kids, she still rocks the whole washboard abs thing, as shown in her funky but stylish wardrobe.”

Mid-show, according to her Instagram, Stefani spotted someone in the audience holding up a sign that said her son had been bullied but that her music cheered him up. Next thing you know the kid is up on stage and they took a selfie.

She later posted: “About 3 years ago when things were hard in my life I prayed to God everyday that I could get a chance to use my gift that God gave me and make a difference in some way in this world - last night this little guy was the answer to my prayers #zerotoleranceforbullies #onelove.”

A fellow audience member Gino Campodonico said that was his favorite part of the concert.

“She brought up a little boy (looked to be around 10 years old) on to the stage after reading a poster,” Campodonico told The Miami Herald. “Her music had helped him cope with some problems, I believe. He was adorable and his hair matched hers – platinum blonde with black tips. She had him on stage again when she bowed at the end of the concert.”
