Adam Levine says he was forced to change his phone number after it was live-Tweeted by fellow “The Voice” judge Blake Shelton.

Prankster Shelton gave out his friend’s cellphone number during a live broadcast of the talent show last week, prompting a Twitter “war of words” and lots of strange calls to Levine’s cell phone.

“It was weird because people would call and then they wouldn’t say anything. Maybe they were shocked or something…. You’d say, ‘Hello…’ and then it would just be silence or heavy panting or weird sexual noises – and then they’d hang up. It was bizarre,” Levine said. “And then I changed my number.”
