Blake Shelton is helping Gwen Stefani get through the painful process of divorce the best way he knows how — with laughter. The two ‘Voice’ judges have bonded over their breakups and now Blake is lifting Gwen’s spirits with his sense of humor!
The old saying “laughter is the best medicine” couldn’t be more fitting for Gwen Stefani, 45, and Blake Shelton, 39. The country crooner, who got a quickie divorce with Miranda Lambert on July 20, is keeping Gwen’s mind off her split with Gavin Rossdale, 49, with the help of some serious “belly laughs!”
“Blake has been a great source of joy and laughter for Gwen during a difficult time in her life,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She can’t believe how blessed she is to have been offered this job on The Voice where she gets to be around amazing people like him, Adam [Levine] and Pharrell [Williams]. She loves them all like brothers but it’s Blake who really helps keep her mind off her split with Gavin. Despite his own marriage trouble, Blake is always smiling and keeping things light on set. Any time Gwen feels like crying, Blake is there cracking her up. He’s helping through her break up with belly laughs!’ That is just too sweet! What an amazing friend Blake is.
Even though Gwen was the one who filed for divorce from Gavin on Aug. 3, it sounds like she Blake’s friendship is just what she needs. “Their friendship has blossomed through both their marital issues that they’re dealing with,” another source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They have confided in each other in a way they really can’t with others because they both know how it feels being a celeb and going through stuff like this. They are a great support system for each other,”
But don’t even think that the Voice judges friendship will lead to love. “Not a chance,” says the source. “They are like brother and sister — it’s all friendship and nothing sexual will come from it at all.”
