The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And it looks like Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are putting that theory to the test.
In the process though, are they really just trying to p*ss off their respective exes?
Speculation had risen after pictures of The Voice coaches on a Halloween date surfaced. Mum was the word for a short period of time. But on November 4, just hours before the CMA Awards, Gwen and Blake confirmed they are dating.
On the surface, it appears that the musicians are happy together. An audience member even caught Gwen and Blake sharing a moment of PDA during filming for The Voice.
Gwen’s rep even stated, “The relationship is very new, but it’s a lot of fun.”
However, according to Us Weekly, behind the scenes, there might be a motive to their unlikely relationship.
Gwen Stefani, 46, divorced Gavin Rossdale, 50, in February after she discovered he was having a long term affair with Mindy Mann, their sons’ nanny.
And what better way to get back at him than to show off a new relationship?
A source close to Stefani claimed, “After everything Gavin has done, she hopes he sees what he’s missing.”
“She’s moved on with somebody better who is really good to her. Her being happy is the best revenge. And she deserves it.”
Maybe Stefani is happy with Blake. But most likely she isn’t beyond rubbing it in Gavin’s face.
Too add to the mix, not only does Stefani want to p*ss Gavin off by flaunting her new romance all over The Voice, Blake also wants to make a statement to his ex-wife Miranda.
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert divorced after only four years of marriage. The surprise announcement shocked fans. And most were even more surprised to see how quickly Blake, 39, moved on.
According to a source though, Gwen is a rebound, not the real deal. “Blake kinds of wants to get back at Miranda,” dished a Voice insider.
We aren’t sure if he really wants to rekindle things with Miranda. But we do think he would, at minimum, use Gwen to keep himself relevant.
So are Gwen and Blake dating because they dig each other? Or are they using each other to get back at their exes?
