It's OFFICIAL! Gwen Stefani is dating Blake Shelton and telling the world about it. After weeks of speculation, Gwen confirmed that she’s seeing the country star and The Voice co-host. "He's a pretty rad guy, I have to say that," she tells 103.7 KVIL.
Gwen has been going through a tough time as her divorce from longtime husband Gavin Rossdale (a catastrophe of epic proportions for all 90s kids) was recently finalized. Blake was really supportive during this time, which may have played a role in their courtship. "There's been loads of people that have helped me with this tragedy," Gwen says. "There's definitely key people that have pointed me into the right direction. Blake really helped me. Not to change the subject, but it's kinda on the same subject, Pharrell was literally like a guardian angel."
The No Doubt singer’s rep confirmed that the longtime friends began dating in November. They stepped out publically for the first as a couple at a Country Music Awards event last week. Despite rumors, Gwen says that she’s not creating sweet music on the record with her new man. "He's not writing on my record.”
As for whether she prefers British gents or Southern men? "Oh, that's such a funny question!" she said, picking up on the reference to her ex husband. "Let's see, I would say if I had to choose, Southern."
