It’s official! Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are dating, her rep confirms exclusively to Us Weekly. “Gwen and Blake are longtime friends who have very recently started dating,” Stefani’s spokesperson, who would not comment further, tells Us.
As previously reported, the twosome have flirted on the set of The Voice and were spotted getting cozy with each other at multiple Halloween parties in L.A. over the weekend.
Country superstar Shelton, 39, is performing and up for numerous awards at tonight’s Country Music Association Awards in Nashville. He plans to take Stefani as his date to the evening’s afterparties, a source tells Us.
Stefani previously remained coy about Shelton while doing press for her latest single “Used to Love You.” During an interview with Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday, Nov. 3, the No Doubt frontwoman, 46, joked “Who’s Blake?” but gushed, “I do think he’s hot, don’t you?”
Both music stars are, of course, newly single. Shelton and Miranda Lambert, who will also be at the CMAs tonight, divorced suddenly in July after four years of marriage. The following month, Stefani and Gavin Rossdale pulled the plug after 13 years of marriage; they share three sons.
