Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale were married for 13 years. And even though the proceedings began months ago, the divorce was finalized only last month, according to ET.
In the first sighting of the two reuniting since they split, the 46-year-old mom of three looked stressed, while Rossdale looked calm and even waved at photographers. The former couple reunited in Beverly Hills.
“She seemed really upset,” an observer told ET. “They were always very cool and friendly but she definitely seemed different… She seemed distant and sad.”
The settlement stipulated that they will divide the profits gained by selling their Beverly Hills home. That section of the agreement gives Gavin the advantage, because it was Stefani who upgraded the house, adding a guest house and new wing. Adding to the stress, their three children (Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2) will have to move.
Rossdale and Gwen share joint custody of the children, and Gavin now has a net worth of $35 million. But their split also came at a price.
After a three-year affair with the family nanny, Rossdale got caught. And when the news spread that Gavin had been unfaithful to her, Stefani felt “mortified, livid, and embarrassed.”
Since then, she’s found a new love in 39-year-old country star Blake Shelton. As to just how faithful he is to his new girlfriend? He “flipped out” after she had a backstage meltdown and now is considering leaving The Voice after next season, a source told Radar Online.
“He is saying that he loves The Voice because it brought him to Gwen, but that he ultimately wants to focus more on his career and give other artists the opportunity that he has had,” clarified the insider.
As for the meltdown, his 46-year-old girlfriend was upset because she was not the one chosen to replace Christina Aguilera on The Voice next season, making her “livid” and threatening that she is “done with the show altogether,” added the insider.
But the drama on The Voice doesn’t end there. Miley Cyrus has taken on the role of key adviser this season and is scheduled to become a coach next season. Ever since taking on her new role, however, Miley has been feuding with coach Adam Levine, a production source told Us Weekly.
“They find each other annoying. Adam would get agitated when Miley would interrupt him, and she enjoyed getting under his skin.”
That gives an indicator of just how much drama could erupt on the set of The Voice next season when Cyrus and Alicia Keys replace Season 10’s Pharrell Williams and Christina Aguilera as coaches.
“It’s true! I am going to be the newest judge on Season 11 of The Voice @NBCTheVoice #thevoice,” Miley proudly tweeted.
But did producers make the right decision in choosing Cyrus? A production source told Radar Online that although the next season of The Voice will not be broadcast for months, cameras are already rolling.
And in the first two weeks of working together as coaches, Adam and Cyrus are at war.
“Adam and Miley were non-stop bickering during their last taping together,” revealed the insider. “He nitpicks almost every single thing she says. Adam seems to find Miley to be extremely loud-mouthed and absolutely annoying!”
As to how Cyrus ended up in the coach chair, there’s more behind-the-scenes drama that resulted in her promotion. Aguilera and Shelton have been feuding, and Christina subsequently arranged for Miley to become a coach to block Gwen from the panel, according to Radar’s insider.
Amid all that drama on The Voice, Cyrus is planning a wedding ceremony with Liam Hemsworth in his home country of Australia, according to Us Weekly.
Miley has already met with a wedding planner, and the lovebirds visited Liam’s family last month to discuss possible locations for the ceremony. Cyrus and Hemsworth initially met in 2009, then started dating and announced their engagement 2012, followed by a split in 2013.
Late last year, however, they reunited, and Cyrus has been seen flaunting her engagement ring again.
