Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are officially a couple, according to reps for Stefani. Stefani filed for divorce from her husband of 13 years, Gavin Rossdale, in August. Shelton and his ex Miranda Lambert announced their divorce in July after four years of marriage. Shelton, 39, and Stefani, 46, are both coaches on NBC's The Voice. Hopefully Blake won't have to endure too many trolling comments, like these other country stars that read mean tweets about themselves.
Stefani's reps confirmed their relationship just before last night's Country Music Awards. This was, of course, the first time in several years that Shelton and Miranda Lambert attended the awards show without each other. Lambert ended up winning Female Vocalist of the Year. Take that, Blake! There is no award for Divorce of the Year, but that would make every awards show a lot more interesting.
One of the hosts, Brad Paisley, made light of the freshly divorced Shelton during his opening monologue, but Shelton took it in stride:
So Miranda won an award, and Blake has a newly official relationship with Gwen. The only update we're missing is from poor Gavin. Stay strong brother. Keep a low profile, or make things really interesting by appearing as a guest judge on The Voice.
