Is Gavin Rossdale getting in the way of Gwen Stefani’s relationship with Blake Shelton? The exes secretly met up recently to discuss Gwen’s future with Blake, and Gavin apparently isn’t too thrilled about her new love. Get the details right here!
Gwen Stefani may be happier than ever in her relationship with Blake Shelton, but her ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale, sure isn’t on board with it! The 50-year-old rocker held a private meeting with Gwen to talk all things Blake, even going as far as discussing her future with the country star. So what did Gavin have to say about Blake?
“Gwen had a meeting with Gavin to discuss her relationship with Blake and how it will affect the children going forward,” an insider close to Gavin and Gwen told to Us Weekly. “[Gavin] wants to be consulted on everything concerning the kids and the role that Blake is playing in their lives.”
Although Gavin’s feelings about Blake are unclear, it sounds like his main concern is that he’ll be overshadowed by Blake when it comes to his kids. Gwen and Gavin have shared custody of their three sons, Kingston, 9, Apollo, 7, and Zuma, 2, since they divorced in August 2015, but Blake has spent a significant amount of time with the boys. They seem to love him as much as he loves them (Kingston has even started dressing like Blake!), which can’t be easy for Gavin to stomach!

In fact, Gavin called the meeting with Gwen to proclaim his “dad rights” as Gwen continues to see Blake. And while the source didn’t mention if Gavin is actually against Blake’s involvement with the boys, they did say that the meeting was awfully “emotional.” Clearly Gavin is at least a little bothered by Gwen’s new relationship!
As for Blake, a source close to the Voice coach told the mag that he doesn’t want anything to do with Gavin. “He can’t forgive someone who treated his lady that way,” the insider said, referencing Gavin’s affair with their family nanny, Mindy Mann. So if Gavin ever wants to meet with Blake himself, that meetup may be a little more difficult to set up!
No matter how Gavin feels about Blake, Gwen hasn’t let it affect her happiness. She just performed her duet with Blake, “Go Ahead and Break My Heart,” on the Billboard Music Awards, and they looked more in love than ever. It sounds like she’s managed to keep Gavin at bay in the first seven months of her relationship with Blake, so let’s hope it stays that way — even if she has to have private meetings with her ex every now and then!
HollywoodLifers, do you think it’s fair for Gavin to be upset over Blake’s involvement with Gwen’s kids? Should Blake stop spending so much time with the boys? Tell us below!
