It’s no secret that Gwen Stefani went through a rough time following her split from Gavin Rossdale. Thankfully, even before they stated dating, she had Blake Shelton there to support her. As a new report claims, it was Blake who ultimately got her through her divorce, acting as her own personal shoulder to cry on. Awww!
Gwen Stefani, 46, was at an absolute low after her split from Gavin Rossdale, 50, but thankfully, she was lucky enough to have Blake Shelton, 39, close by on the set of The Voice to help lift her spirits. The country singer’s compassion is actually what gave Gwen the confidence to push through the difficult time, a new report claims, as she used him as her shoulder to cry on before ultimately seeing the potential relationship between them.
When Gwen started taping season 9 of The Voice over the summer, she confided in Blake, who was in the midst of his own divorce battle with Miranda Lambert,” according to a new report in the Nov. 23 issue of Us Weekly magazine. “Both of them went through a rough time with their spouses, and they found each other,” an insider told the publication. The “Used To Love You” singer also admitted in an interview with a Texas radio station on Nov. 6 that Blake helped guide her through the “tragedy” of her split. “He’s a pretty rad guy. I have to say that…Blake really helped me.”
As for the tragedy that rocked her marriage, Gwen admitted during a Nov. 3 interview that her life “basically blew up” 24-hours after the Grammys in February, and according to Us Weekly, that’s because it’s when she finally told Gavin her suspicions about his relationship with the family’s nanny, Mindy Mann. The confrontation came after the No Doubt frontwoman allegedly found disturbing texts between the two, which explains why she seemed on the verge of tears during her Grammys performance with Adam Levine.
So why didn’t Gwen call it quits with Gavin back in February, then? At the time, he insisted the messages were nothing more than a “flirtation,” and with three kids, she decided to try and stick it out even though she reportedly “knew the truth in her heart,” according to the magazine. Once Gavin allegedly came clean, though, Gwen ended things right then and there.
Thankfully, Gwen has come a long way since then, and seems to have found her happiness once again in Blake. “They laugh, tell jokes, go to dinners, watch movies and TV,” says their source. “He adores her. It’s really cute. They are having the best time together,” the source added. “Blake and Gwen deserve to be happy.” Here, here!
