News broke earlier that Gwen Stefani, 46, was catching a last-minute plane to Nashville to be with Blake Shelton, 39, for the CMA Awards, and just hours later they announced that they’re officially dating.

First, we learned that Gwen was mysteriously hopping a plane to Nashville just in time for the CMA Awards. Then, her publicist announce that she and Blake were officially in a relationship. Everyone was waiting with bated breath to see if the two would make their red carpet debut, but then TMZ reported that Gwen was not going to be there, she would just attend the after parties.
Miranda was understandably concerned that Gwen might show up on the red carpet after hearing the news of their new relationship. An insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Miranda would think it’s “pretty uncool if Gwen showed up at the awards considering the situation but she’s a professional she’s not going to confront her at a show.” Thank goodness that it didn’t come to that, but we’re glad Miranda would have played it cool.
However, Gwen’s absence was not to spare Miranda’s feelings. A source told TMZ, “she doesn’t care if Miranda’s there or not. She just didn’t have the right clothes for the award ceremony because it was so last minute.” Ouch. We just hope everyone can remain civil through this sticky situation, and we’re glad Miranda got to enjoy her big night without any drama.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Gwen should have walked the red carpet with Blake? Sound off below!
