Grammy award-winning singer Christina Aguilera recently opened up about her feelings on Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton’s new romance.
The singer, who is slated to return to The Voice next season, told Us Weekly that she approves of the reality competition show’s “first love connection.”
“I’ve known Gwen for a really long time,” she told the magazine while at Verizon’s HopeLine campaign in Los Angeles. “We went to each others’ kids birthday parties, we share the same management, and Blake I know now from the show."
Gwen confirmed the relationship earlier this month after both she and Blake finalized their respective divorces.
In August, Gwen and Gavin Rossdale split after 13 years of marriage. And Blake Shelton and Miranda Lamber split in July after just a short four year marriage.
“The two of them are both great people,” 34-year-old Aguilera said.
“Gwen's such a great mother and a hard-working mother too! It's not easy to juggle The Voice and music and children — it takes a strong woman,” she admired.
“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!”
Christina doesn’t have respect for them. She is in total support of their rebound relationship: “I keep telling them both to stay strong and have fun!”
The mom of two knows what it is like to go through a divorce. In 2010 Aguilera and husband Jordan Bratman split.
“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!”
Before Christina supports them too much, she should remember that Gwen and Blake's relationship will be featured on The Voice.
This could change the tone of the reality competition show, making her return less about coaching on The Voice and more about the personal lives of the coaches.
While commenting on Blake and Gwen, Aguilera made a point to support the HopeLine campaign, an organization dedicated to supporting domestic violence prevention and awareness:
“It's a subject that really hits home with me because I've always been pretty vocal and open about my own experiences in witnessing domestic violence in the home and neighboring homes around me.”
She added, “So it was something that was pretty constant in my younger upbringing.”
“That's why for me, it's so important for me to speak my truth and helping others to find theirs and to find their own hope in a hopeless situation.”
