Secret sit-down! Gwen Stefani and her ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale, met in private to discuss the “Used to Love You” singer’s romance with her current beau, Blake Shelton, a family source reveals exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly.
The fellow Voice coaches started dating in October 2015 following their respective divorces from Miranda Lambert and Rossdale, 50. Since then, the “Straight Outta Cold Beer” crooner, 39, has formed a tight bond with Stefani’s sons, Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2, much to the dismay of Stefani’s ex and the boys’ father.
Though the former couple have shared custody since calling it quits in August 2015 after nearly 13 years of marriage, a family source tells Us that Rossdale had an “emotional” meeting with Stefani, 46, to reassert his dad rights.
“Gwen had a meeting with Gavin to discuss her relationship with Blake and how it will affect the children going forward,” the insider explains to Us. “[Gavin] wants to be consulted on everything concerning the kids and the role that Blake is playing in their lives.”
While Rossdale would like to be kept in the loop when it comes to his sons’ relationship with Shelton, the country chart-topper has no interest in having a relationship with the Bush frontman.
“[Blake] has nothing to do with Gavin,” says a source close to Shelton, noting that he is disgusted that Rossdale, as Us reported last year, cheated on Stefani with the kids’ nanny. “He can’t forgive someone who treated his lady that way.”
