Christina Aguilera is totally shipping Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani! The singer, who is friendly with both stars, dished about the ‘awesome’ relationship and explained why she’s so supportive of the hot new romance
A fellow The Voice coach is lending her support to Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani! Although she’s not on the show with the couple right now, Christina Aguilera has obviously caught wind of the romance (you can’t avoid it!), and she couldn’t help but gush about the lovebirds during an interview on Nov. 11. Find out what she said here!
“I’ve known Gwen for a really long time,” the singer told Us Weekly. “We went to each others’ kids birthday parties, we share the same management. And Blake I know now from the show. The two of them are both great people. Gwen’s such a great mother and a hard-working mother, too. It’s not easy to juggle The Voice and children — it takes a strong woman. And obviously I’m always in support of that. And I do know what it’s like to go through a divorce myself, and it’s tough! I keep telling them both to stay strong and have fun! Divorce and life is hard enough. If you find someone who makes you happy, you gotta go for it. So they deserve it and they deserve to be happy!”
With the whole world looking into and critiquing their relationship, it’s great that the couple has this support from their old friend. They’ve been under intense scrutiny ever since their respective divorces over the summer, and things have really blown up this week as a bombshell new report that Gwen’s ex, Gavin Rossdale, allegedly cheated on her with their nanny, Mindy Mann, has come to light.
“At first, Gwen was completely devastated and didn’t want to face the public, but Blake was right there by her side cheering her on,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He reassured her that things would only get better for her from now on — that everyone, including himself, was behind her 110% and that, if she faced her fears by showing up in her life, she would be the winner.”
And it’s not just the country singer who has made sure to back Gwen up — being on The Voice has been exactly the medicine she’s needed to keep busy while all these allegations are surfacing. “It’s her whole team on The Voice. They’re like family to her now,” our source explained. “They all told her they’d support her if she needed to take some time off after the news hit about Gavin’s affair, but Gwen wouldn’t dream of it — she’s way too tough to let this break her. Plus, right now, the show is actually a huge form of therapy for her. She loves doing it and being with her TV family. It takes her mind off her personal life.”
Are you surprised Christina is so openly supporting Blake and Gwen, HollywoodLifers? Do you ship these two?
