Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton, and Gavin Rossdale may have become one of the most complicated celebrity love triangles in recent history. Did Gwen start dating Blake before her divorce from Gavin was final, or did Shelton just help Stefani recover after what she’s termed a tragedy in her life? And what did Gwen know about Nannygate? Those are the questions that followers of Stefani are asking as more details emerge about Gwen, Blake, and Rossdale.
As for cuddling in between crooning on The Voice, Shelton and Stefani made it very clear to the audience that they’re a couple when they did the first live show after going public with their romance, according to Entertainment Tonight.
But the bummer for TV viewers is that the romantic moments came when the cameras were turned off. However, the audience at the taping got to watch as, when Gwen entered the stage, Blake headed over and hugged her. And when the taping broke for commercials, Shelton headed straight for Stefani. In one PDA break, Gwen had an arm wrapped around Blake, and squeezed his arm.
In addition, The Voice broadcast Blake’s favoritism for Gwen.
Blake’s spokesperson provided confirmation that he and Stefani are dating. The Voice coaches were spotted in Nashville for a CMA after-party recently, and they were engaged in PDA then, as well.
“[Blake is] a pretty rad guy,” praised Gwen, adding in reference to her divorce from Gavin Rossdale, “There’s been loads of people that have helped me with this tragedy… Blake really helped me.”
As for specifics of the romance between Stefani and Shelton, a source on The Voice confirmed that they’re having flirty fun to E! News.
“They are definitely flirty on the set and you can see they have fun together. There is something going on between them and they have spent time together off set,” the insider told E.
So what’s the word from Gwen when Ryan Seacrest asked her about the romance rumors? Stefani wouldn’t say yes — but she wouldn’t say no.
“I’m not going to answer that right now, Ryan,” equivocated Gwen, then adding. “I think he’s hot, don’t you?”
But when it comes to the question of the divorce of Stefani,that’s where it gets hot in a different sense.
The iPad in question also contained the secret rendezvous that Rossdale and the family nanny were planning with sex as their goal. When a different nanny came across the tell-tale tidbits, that person informed Stefani.
As to why Gwen tried to keep the affair between her spouse and the family nanny private, she didn’t want pity from her public, a source shared with Hollywood Life.
“Gwen did not want this news about Gavin and the nanny to go public,” said that source. “She hates people feeling sorry for her. It’s a nightmare. She’s planning to keep her head down and focus on her kids and her work.”
That nanny, Mindy Mann, was hired by the 46-year-old Voice coach and Gavin, 50, because she was recommended by pals. However, Gwen noticed that Mindy started to copy her.
“If Gwen would eat something or do a workout or get a new handbag, Mindy would do the same thing,” the insider shared with Us. “Gwen thought it was weird.”
In addition to trying to become a Stefani clone with diet and accessories, Mindy started to share social media photos that resembled Gwen. Add in photos showing PDA between Gavin and Mindy, and then subsequently the nude photos sent by the nanny to Rossdale, and Stefani was more than ready to end the marriage, the source told Us.
